As of 2012[update] (the 2011–12 season), this marks the only time in NBA finals history that a team has been down 3–0 and has won 3 straight games to tie the series at 3–3 and force a game 7 (the 1949 Washington Capitols and the 1996 Seattle SuperSonics both won 2 in a row when down 3-0 to force a game 6).
The 79-75 Game 7 loss by the New York Knicks is the closest of any Game 7 involving teams overcoming 3-0 deficits in NBA history. In 1994 the Denver Nuggets forced a Game 7 against the Utah Jazz, but lost 91-81 (10 points). Also, the 2003 Portland Trail Blazers forced a Game 7 against the Dallas Mavericks, but lost 107-95 (12 points).
In Game 7, Bob Davies snapped a 75-75 tie by sinking both free throws to give the Royals the lead for good.
