A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports:
• The Nets overcame an 18-point deficit and won at Chicago 86-83. Last Friday, New Jersey trailed 18-0 and rallied to beat the Bulls 91-86. Over the last ten seasons there was only one other instance in which one NBA team beat another twice in one season in games in which the losing team held a lead of 18 or more points. That was in 2003-04, when the Lakers beat Orlando in that manner twice.
