The mark of 17 combined pitchers had previously been reached in two playoff games: Game 2 of the 2014 NLDS (Giants vs. Nationals), and Game 3 2005 World Series (White Sox vs. Astros).

There have been only two NBA Finals games needing the extra 15 minutes of three overtimes, Boston's victory over Phoenix in 1976 and the Suns' win over Chicago in 1993. Nunez made a dive into first base and jarred himself as Alexander's throw went wild, scoring Holt with the go-ahead run.
