Ranking The Top 5 NBA Playoff Comebacks

Ranking The Top 5 NBA Playoff Comebacks
  • Marcus Blackwell

So far in this year’s NBA Playoffs, we have seen a few very impressive comebacks where teams seemed dead in the water and were able to turn things around and come out with some big wins. We had the Cavaliers come back from 26 against the Pacers, and most recently we saw Golden St. come back from a 25 point deficit against San Antonio. Although we understand that Kawhi Leonard going downplayed a huge part in that, it was still pretty impressive. With all that said, below we have compiled and ranked what we think are the 5 best all-time NBA Playoff comebacks.
