Road Teams and Tinder
ESPN report suggests NBA teams are doing better on the road because Tinder makes it easier for them to, uh, score https://t.co/nZsTMzDudb
— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) March 20, 2017
Home teams won 67.9% of their games in the 1987-88 season. Home court advantage has been declining and sits at an all-time low of 57.4% this season. Why, per a report by ESPN its because athletes use apps like Tinder to hookup on the road.

NBA players are all about peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Seriously. If you are going to believe road teams have been performing better because of Tinder then this story seems logical as well.
