While theoretically, the points scored ten minutes into a game are worth the same as the ones scored in the dying moments, practically it doesn't work out that way. As anyone who routinely watches basketball games will tell you, in almost every game played between teams of roughly equal strength, the game is almost always going to be within 10 points either way leading up to the last 5 minutes. In those last five minutes, the points scored per minute tend to be much higher than at any other point of the game for both sides.
