Challenge #5: NBA Tournament
You will play Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
You will play two players each day of your choosing from any NBA team playing that day.
Twice you will declare that you are going for points. Twice you will declare that you are going for rebounds. Twice you will declare that you are going for assists.
You score 1x the points scored for a player you choose for points
You score 2x the rebounds for a player you choose for rebounds
You score 3x the assists for a player you choose for assists
Win and advance in the winner's bracket. Lose and advance to the Ultimate loser.
All teams will play day 1 and 2, but only the two teams that have lost twice or won twice matter on day 3.
Kobe Lakers points Friday
D Williams Nets assists Friday
Nash Lakers assists Saturday
Kobe Lakers points Saturday
Griffin Clippers rebounds Sunday
D Howard Lakers rebounds Sunday
Notice that you had to choose assists, rebounds and points twice each.
Make sure to give me the team of the player you select.
Don't forget to make sure the team is playing (i.e. the Lakers aren't playing all three nights like in my picks)
BONUS FOR TEAM DRUNK
You can give me two options for any one of the six slots, but it has to be for the same category.
So, it can be Nash Lakers or D Williams Nets for assists on Saturday for example
Here is the bracket set by the results from the last challenge:
(1) Team Drunk vs. (8) pureh/ohhale
will match up in round 2 against the winner/losers of
(4) knee/arfy vs. (5) csudak/tsut
On the other side:
(2) dotdec/nelson vs. (7) raider/mojo
will matchup in round 2 against the winner/loser
(3) ghutton/horvie vs. (6) rebel/apple
Obviously the two 2-0 teams will play in the finals and the two 0-2 teams will play for elimination. The four 1-1 teams get Sunday off.
VERY IMPORTANT PICKS DUE BY 3 p.m. TOMORROW WEDNESDAY
I know this is two days before the challenge, but again, I will be out until Sunday, most likely, starting at 4 p.m.
Tiebreaker #1: Highest scoring college team (you will need one for each night, who knows when you will be tied)
Tiebreaker #2: Lowest scoring college team (you will need one for each night, same reason)
Tiebreaker #3: First to get it to me
