1978: Bullets 105, SuperSonics 99. One of the most unlikely matchups — Seattle came out of the West as a No. 4 seed and Washington was the third seed in the East — provided one of the more memorable games in finals history. The Bullets led by 11 points before Seattle surged back into the game, cutting the deficit to 101-99 in the final 90 seconds. Sonics big man Paul Silas intentionally fouled Bullets forward Wes Unseld, who was a 63 percent foul shooter for his career. But Unseld made both free throws and Bobby Dandridge dunked home the last of his 19 points to seal Washington's only basketball title. Dennis Johnson was 0 for 14 from the floor, but Marvin "The Human Eraser" Webster scored 27 points and Jack Sikma chipped in 21 for the Sonics. Charles Johnson scored 19 points and Unseld added 15 points for Washington, which the last team to win a Game 7 on the road.
