NBA Playoffs: A look at first-round series stats

Hyped by on April 22, 2013 Website: www.statsontapp.com

Each of the opening games in the first-round playoff series in the 2013 NBA playoffs went as planned as each of the higher seeds won the first game of the series.

Since 2003, the NBA playoff format has been 16 teams playing a best-of-seven series in the first round. There have been 80 first-round series since ’03, with the lower seed winning only 20 percent of those series that feature match-ups of the #1-#8 seeds, #2-#7 seeds, #3-#6 seeds and #4-#5 seeds.

Here’s a look at how many games (and series) the lower seeds have won since 2003 in the first round of the NBA playoffs
