Daniel Dunn-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the San Antonio Spurs by a score of 117-109 on Thursday night, and in a fantastic coincidence, a 1991 episode of “Seinfeld” correctly “predicted” that very outcome.

In an episode from the iconic comedy’s second season titled, “The Heart Attack,” Jerry, George and Kramer pay a visit to the apartment of Tor Eckman, a holistic healer.

The impetus for the visit is George’s notorious frugalness as he attempts to utilize the healer to avoid a costly medical procedure. Jerry, however, hopes to take advantage of Tor’s shaman-like talents to interpret an indecipherable joke he poorly scribbled out on a sheet of paper while half asleep.

Tor, after chuckling, reads Jerry’s scrawled words as “Cleveland, 117, San Antonio, 109.”

Upon learning of the outstanding coincidence, the Cavaliers’ official Twitter account shared the relevant portion of the scene.

“The Simpsons” are without question the gold standard when it comes to the long-running animated show’s uncanny ability to predict future events, in sports and otherwise. While “Seinfeld” has no chance of eclipsing “The Simpsons” in that regard, the above coincidence is certainly an amusing one.
