|Portland and Houston are winless in their own buildings.|
Maybe they were on to something.
Through the first 26 games of the NBA playoffs, the home teams are a combined 11-15. In two series, Wizards vs. Bulls and Rockets vs. Blazers, the visiting clubs are undefeated in six total chances.
During the 2013-2014 regular season home teams went 714-516, for a .580 winning percentage. In the postseason that number has fallen to .423. Yes, 26 games is a small sample, but it's still a ridiculous drop off.
