### 17 113 153 351 | Blazers close out Clippers 15-3 in final 3:51, April 23, 2016 (Scripted NBA by the numbers)

Last night I was watching the Blazers and Clippers came with my buddy, a big Blazers fan, who thinks my magnet theory is a major reach, but he is pretty warmed up to rigged sports by the numbers.  At the end of the game, he got more evidence of this truth.

The Portland Trailblazers, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Buffalo Braves all joined the NBA in 1970, bringing the league total to 17-teams.  The Buffalo Braves are now the Los Angeles Clippers.

NBA = 14+2+1 = 17
Cavs, Blazers and Braves (Clippers) made 17-teams in the league in '70

If you sum every number 1 through 17, it totals 153, kind of like the 15-3 close in the game.

Also, April 23, the date of the game, is typically the 113th day of the year.

In the Bible, the miraculous catch of fish is '153' fish.

Also, that span of 3:51 that the 15-3 run came in stands out.  Notice that 153 and 351 are reflections of each other.  These numbers are connected to God.

God = 7+6+4 = 17
God = 7+15+4 = 26

When you sum every number, one through seventeen, it totals 153.  When you sum every number, one through twenty-six, it totals 351.

One last point to notice, the Clippers had '85' points when this rally started by the Blazers.
