I’ve been so busy lately that I forgot all about it. Do people think it’s too late? We all have the same advantages. Let me check the schedule and find a good date to make picks due.

I would guess before tip off on Monday evening....so every team has played a game.

if I recall, you simply pick the winner of each series and the # of games.....which projects the next round, and you again pick the winner and # of games. Obviously if you pick the wrong winner, your projected next round participants will be incorrect.

I had it on a work computer from an old company. I believe it was 5 points for the first round, 8, 10 and 12 for subsequent rounds. Minus the number of games that the series lasted. For example, if I pick 76ers over the Nets in 6 and they win in 7, it would be 5-1 for 4 points. I hope that makes sense.

It looks like all series will be 2 games in by the end of Wednesday, so let’s make the deadline by 5 pm Pacific on Thursday.

I was wondering where this was this year. It seemed like there was an especially short turnaround between the seeding lock-in and the start of the playoffs.

I found my spreadsheet and the scoring is:

5 pts
8 pts
12 pts
15 pts
