But the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat are going to the NBA Finals by winning on the road.
The Grizzlies and Pacers were very good home teams in the regular season. Memphis was 32-9 and lost just once at FedEx Forum after Feb. 8. Indiana was 30-11 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and went more than two months early in the season without a home loss.
And while teams in the top of the bracket such as Oklahoma City, New York, Denver, Brooklyn and even San Antonio and Miami stubbed their toes at home early in the postseason, Memphis and Indiana remained perfect in their own buildings. Both teams were 6-0 at home through the first two rounds.
