Playoff Pickum Game

Well I do a prediction game for the regular season (those results will be coming out after the regular season awards are announced) so I thought I'd get a little game going for the playoffs. So it's pretty simple, you pick who you think is going to win each series and in how many games from the first round all the way to the finals. For the finals we will also make a guess for MVP as a tie breaker. Scoring system will be:

1st round: 1 point if you pick the winner which is doubled (2) if you get the number of games correct.

2nd round: 2 points if you pick the winner which is doubled (4) if you get the number of games correct.

3rd round: 3 points if you pick the winner which is doubled (6) if you get the number of games correct.

Finals: 4 points if you pick the winner which is doubled (8) if you get the number of games correct.

Also remember to pick a Finals MVP as a tie-breaker.

My picks:

Round 1:

East:

ATL over BKN (in 5)

TOR over WAS (in 7)

CHI over MIL (in 6)

CLE over BOS (in 4)

West:

GS over NO (in 5)

MEM over POR (in 5)

SA over LAC (in 6)

DAL over HOU (in 6)

Round 2:

East:

ATL over TOR (in 5)

CLE over CHI (in 6)

West:

GS over MEM (in 6)

SA over DAL (in 6)

Round 3:

East:

CLE over ATL (in 6)

West:

GS over SA (in 7)

Finals:

GS over CLE (in 7)

MVP: Curry

Get you picks in before the first game starts (April 18th)!!!!!

I would love to see Rose win

I would love to see Rose win a championship minus the Raptors defeat. That would be genuinely refreshing.

not sure if anyone knew but

not sure if anyone knew but nba.com has a cool playoff fantasy game where you pick a player every day and accumulate stats. only catch is that player can't be used again for the rest of the fantasy game. pretty interesting game if anyone is interested. my coworker just showed it to me.

Golden State doesnt have

Golden State doesnt have enough size to win a title.. also GS stats are inflated because they play at a very quick pace, I doubt they will be able to continue that in the playoffs.. I really like the Hawks and Bulls in the East. I also love the Mavericks and Spurs in the west but they get pitted against each other before the Western Conference Finals... That being said heres my picks

East

Hawks over Nets

Raptors over Wizards

Cleveland over Boston in 7 games (I see this series being a tough one for the Cavs)

Bulls over Bucks

West

Warriors over Pelicans

Grizzles over Blazers

Mavericks over Rockets

Spurs over Clippers

Round2

West

Memphis over Warriors

Spurs over Mavericks

East

Bulls over Cavs

Hawks over Raptors

Finals

Bulls vs Spurs

It's painful reading this, knowing the Bulls don't have much hope going into the playoffs. :/

Surprises

Nobody has the media's favourite contender, Cleveland, or last years champs, San Anotonio, winning it all.
