This research analyzes the boost in motivation that teams experience when getting a second chance to achieve the desired objective within competition settings. To achieve this aim we analyzed the NBA framework, where two teams compete for victory in each game. Through the analysis of 390 matches that ended in a draw, and therefore the final result was reached in the overtime, we show how teams tying a game on the final play of the match are more likely to win in the overtime when playing away, but not at home. Being the first team to score in the overtime increases the probability of winning the game for both home and away situations.
