CLEVELAND — If last night's score at the end of the Cavs-Spurs game seemed a bit familiar to you, but you couldn't quite place it, you might have heard it before in an episode of the iconic television show "Seinfield." In 1991, a second-season episode called "The Heart Attack" had Jerry asking people to decipher a note he wrote in chicken scratch while half-asleep.

During the episode, Jerry, along with Kramer and George, visits a healer in an attempt to keep George from having to visit a doctor to remove his tonsils. That's when Jerry hands the healer the note, hoping that at least one person can read it so he can figure out what he had written but could not read.

As it turns out, the note read "Cleveland 117, San Antonio 109," the exact score of Thursday's game.

Was it a coincidence, divine intervention or yada yada yada?
