That's back-testable at http://killersports.com/nba.py/query?sid=guest&text=+&=1&submit=query
With a query of: Sum(W@team and season) - Sum(L@team and season) >= 2 and p:margin<0 and pp:margin<0
The SU is 1306-909 and ATS 1094-1083-38, this is how a team does when it is at least 2 games above .500 at the present game and has just lost two previous games in a row.
If that team lost the third game, how often did it win the fourth: SU 430-323 and ATS 367-369-17. And, if the team won the third, how often did it win the fourth: SU 853-597 and ATS 727-701-22.
I couldn't find a way to insure that the team was at least 2 games above .500 after the third game.
Regardless .. nothing here, and this data base goes back at least to 1995.
