A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports:

• The Suns' Game 7 victory over the Lakers on Saturday made it a clean sweep for the eight NBA teams that held home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. It's the third time in the past five years that all eight teams with home-court advantage moved on to the conference semifinals.

• What Goes Around Comes Around Department: It took 36 years, but the Suns turned the tables on the Lakers about as emphatically as possible. Phoenix spotted the upstart Lakers a three-games-to-one series lead before its crushing 121-90 victory in Game 7.
