More Scoring Oddities

Yesterday we saw the first two games end 96-91, and today we had more scoreboard craziness. The four losing teams scored 82, 85, 87, and 89 ... but that was incredibly varied compared to the winning scores. Two teams - Phoenix and Denver - posted 95, while the other two - Cleveland and Golden State - scored 97. Isn't that a little strange? Throw in this twin 96s yesterday and 6 of the 8 winners have scored between 95 and 97 points. In a sport where winning scores can range from the 70s to north of 130, that seems almost impossible. I fully expect Doug Collins to have some sort of new rule in place to deal with this trend.
