The hapless Washington Wizards' win over the mighty Miami Heat on Tuesday was so improbable that it could have been produced in Hollywood.
Indeed, some people are now wondering if the upset was already written and forecasted by one of the most popular shows on television.
A crafty Homeland fan noticed that the Wizards-Heat game played out in an eerily similar manner to a scene in the TV show. Check it out below, and don't worry, there are no spoilers.
As you can see, the Wizards were leading by five points in the Homeland scene. The margin of victory in the actual game was four points: Wizards 105, Heat 101. But the gap would have been five if Nene Hilario of Washington hadn't missed one of his two free-throw attempts with two seconds left in the game.
For all of our sakes, let's hope this is the only coincidence between Homeland and real life.
