I am a firm believer that a basketball team needs to have some positive momentum going into a playoff tourney to win a championship.
The best team to prove this would be the New York Nets of the old ABA.
Led by the great Julius “Dr. J” Erving, they won the ABA championship in 1974.
The next year they had an even better regular-season record, 58-26, but they were stumbling down the stretch. And they lost 4-1 in the first round of the playoffs to the Spirits of St. Louis, who were 32-52 in the regular season.
