Layups: Playoff Matchups by City in Professional Sports

Posted by Neil Paine on May 13, 2011

Awesome post here from

Playoff Matchups by City in Professional Sports <<

Andrew researched how many times pro sports teams from various cities faced each other in the playoffs (with multi-game series counting as 1 matchup). Los Angeles and Dallas just finished their 15th battle (with L.A. leading 9-6), while relative newcomer Miami spoiled what would have been the 16th Boston-vs-Chicago matchup of all-time (Boston currently leads that series 10-5).
