Mercy rule, Slaughter rule, Knockout rule, or Skunk rule is used when one competitor has a very large and presumably insurmountable lead over the other. It is called the mercy rule because it spares further humiliation for the loser. In basketball Mercy rule is called for 35 point lead at or after halftime or 15 points at the 2-minute mark.
