Here is a stat that I came across that I personally found amazing.
No #4 seed has been to the Conference Finals.
The NBA began seeding teams for the 1984 postseason. Yet no #4 seed has made it to the third round. Amazing.
Amazing since in 1995, the Houston Rockets, a 6th seed, won the NBA Finals.
Amazing since in 1999, the New York Knicks, an 8th seed, went to the NBA Finals.
Amazing since in in 1994 and 1999, the #1 seed was upset in the first round. In 1994, the #8 seeded Nuggets, who upset the top seeded Sonics, met the #5 seeded Utah Jazz in the 2nd round. Utah beat the #4 Spurs in the first round. In 1999, the #8 seed Knicks did meet the #4 Hawks in the 2nd round. The Knicks ended up SWEEPING the Hawks.
Just remember that stat, Kings and Heat fans, when the next round occurs. And, Miami, you still haven't punched your ticket for the next round.
