Fibonacci NBA Style

In honor of the NBA All-Star weekend taking place in New Orleans (home of the Pelicans), I thought I would share this interesting little prediction from last year's (2013) playoffs. It was Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals (2 is a Fibonacci number), and it took place on May 8, or 5/8/13 (all Fibonacci numbers). I won't spoil the surprise, but check out this link, where it was mathematically proven that the Bulls would win. This photo should help get you in the mood!

Sadly, the Heat apparently failed their high school math classes because despite all signs pointing to a big win by the Bulls (some even suggested the score would be 144-89), the Heat blew out the Bulls by a final score of 115-78, a difference of 37. And no, none of those numbers are Fibonacci numbers....
