Cavs, Warriors and Rockets have lost some of their home games already. Hopefully, Celtics will be able to defend their turf if they can't close out on road. Game 5 is usually a pivotal moment in playoffs and might decide the outcome of the series.

The Nets also haven't lost a home meeting.

Home floor paid off in the last 2 years, no doubt.

Iím sure we have far and away the biggest difference between home and road record too.

you may be correct on the importance of a game five victory. historically, the winner of a 2 to 2 series who wins game five goes on to win the series 82 percent of the time. the reasoning is easy enough.

one team only needs to win one game to advance and has a game on their home court. odds in their favor with that situation.

I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy ó not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.
