no, i consider a team with 77 points or more than the other team a blowout

It depends - I've watched games that were pretty close for most of the way just completely slip away in the last 2-3 minutes and have a 8-10 point lead balloon up to 20+

i dont consider the heat beating the cavs by 20 a blowout but i consider the heat beating some team like the celtics by 7 a blowout

This.

It happens more often than one might think. You are going back and forth, or even have a lead going into the the fouth, the other team puts together a couple stops and a couple of threes, and all of a sudden you are down by 8-10 with three minutes to go. The game has been within striking distance the entire time, but things fall apart towards the end, you have to start fouling to stop the clock, and next thing you know, you've lost by 20. It is not what I'd call a close game, but not what I'd call a blow out.


Now, if on the other hand you have a 20 point leads after half time, or more, and you bring in your reserves, who maintain the twenty point lead through to the end of the game, then yes, that would be a blow-out.

It all depends on the context of the game.

But generally speaking, as a rule, I'd say 20 points is a safe bet for a blow out.

There's no defined number/score. A blow out is when the game is over after the first quarter/half, etc.

Yeah. I'd say 20+. Depends if it happens in garbage time though. Sometimes the coach will put the end of his bench with 2 minutes to go down 10-15 or so and end up losing by 25+.
