On one odd day in late April, 2014 the cities of Houston and Portland took a long look at each other on the field of play and may have felt like they were looking in a mirror. Despite their notable differences in player personnel and style, the professional teams from these two cities found they had identical offensive output at the end of the game… in two different sports on the same day! So, kinda weird, right?
Okay, maybe not so shocking since we know the Timbers are (not so) secretly the Tie-ers, and the Blazers and Rockets have gone to overtime 3 out of their 4 games so far in this 4/5 NBA playoff first round match-up of teams who had the same regular season record (54-28). But nonetheless, I give pause to this sporting world anomaly we may never see the likes of again.
