New Google Sports Knowledge Graph May Include NBA Video Recaps

Search for [miami heat] on Google and you may not just see information about scores, schedules, standings and so on, but you may also see a video hosted on YouTube from the NBA with a game recap. Google is now showing video thumbnails in the NBA knowledge graph.

The picture above shows how the result looks like today but when you click on the video, Google overlays a black background on top of the results and plays the full video on top of the search results.

The video contains data on the top of it, including the teams that played, their standings and the final score, including their logos. Here is a picture of the overlay:

Hat tip to Samuel Edwards from Tenthwave for spotting this.
