The Boston Celtics are coming off a Game 3 loss to the Miami Heat on Sunday and now trail 0-3 in the Eastern Conference finals, but not all hope is lost, at least not according to ESPN.
In fact, Boston still has a 72 percent chance of winning the series, per ESPN‘s Basketball Performance Index (BPI).
No team in NBA history has ever managed to win a playoffs series after trailing 0-3.
Still, the index used by ESPN, which measures how well teams perform in relation to their opponents, gives the Celtics a great chance to come back.
The Los Angeles Lakers, meanwhile, trail the Denver Nuggets 0-3 and only have a five percent chance of winning the series.
