Playoff Scores: This is Getting Downright Weird

The Pistons beat the Magic 98-90 tonight. And wouldn't you know it, the Rockets defeated Utah by the exact same score. In case you forgot, this same thing happened in the first two games of the playoffs with a pair of 96-91 games.

Not only that, but the winning scores through 10 games are as follows:

96, 96, 100, 84, 97, 97, 95, 95, 98, 98.

Throw out Houston's 84 from Saturday and every winning score has been between 95 and 100. Considering the disparite styles of play among the winning teams (the winners rank 1, 2, 3, 9, 13, 17, 19, and 21 in the league in scoring) , this is starting to feel like an episode of The Twilight Zone.

Well, so much for that.

Last night we had winning scores of 89, 107, and 126.

Still, "fun with numbers" was great while it lasted.
