For a stats geek like me, this makes me feel a little better (but not much) about tuning out of last night's epic Spurs win. It also underscores just how ridiculously improbable (impossible?) the comeback was:

1) Teams leading by 16 points with 4 minutes left in playoff games were 392-0 record all-time before yesterday. Now, 392-1.

2) Numberfire.com presented the odds by minute thusly at Inside the Spurs' Incredible Game 1 Comeback Trail - numberFire


Start of 4th, 12:00 left in regulation (Spurs down 80-92): 12.5% chance of victory.
9:00 left in regulation (Spurs down 82-98): 3.0% chance.
4:31 left (Spurs down 88-104): 0.5% chance.
