I haven't done deep data on it, but looking at the past five years, the two semifinal games have been decided by an average of 12.8 total points, or 6.4 per game. Lots of thrillers there.
You have to go all the way back to 2010 to find a bonafide blowout. In the handful of games (I think I counted 3) since 2010 that have actually gone double-digits, it was always because of a team pulling away from a close game at the FT line.
