NBA Pick'em Week 5

Posted on: November 19, 2009 8:21 pm
 

FYI: The results for Week 3 and overall standings are available on the separate thread.  Click here to view them.

Importance Notice!  Next week, I (LA-Town) will be out of town to return to my hometown in Los Angeles area to spend Thanksgiving weekend with my family and friends.  During the period, the Week 4 results won't be available.  They will become available along with the Week 5 results in the first week of December.  I sincerely apologize for any such delay.  I appreciate your patience with me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is by-invitation only.  During this NBA regular season, the only members listed below are eligible to submit their weekly picks on this blog or via PM (to me).

The simple rules follow:
There will be about 25-30 NBA games, but each player makes up to only 20 picks per week.  No more than 20 picks per week.
Each player will receive 2 points for a win and 1 extra point for picking the correct margin.
The margins you choose from are as follows: 1-4, 5-9, 10-14, 15-19 and 20+.

An example of a pick: Charlotte Bobcats at New Orleans Hornets = Hornets by 15-19
Another example of a pick: Minnesota Timberwolves at Memphis Grizzlies = Wolves by 1-4

You have 2 options:
1. Post your predictions on my blog
2. If you prefer to keep your predications in private, please PM yours to me.

It is very important to remember that all picks must be made by 30 minutes prior to each week's first game tip-off.  I will post the deadline's specific date and time so you should not forget.

Please note that I have to be fair to every player:
1. If any player misses a pick'em week, he or she will receive zero points.
2. If any player submits his/her picks after each week's first game starts, 5 points will be deducted from his or her weekly score total.

Good Luck!
