NBA Pick Em - Week 12 Picks & Week 10/11 Results

Posted on: February 14, 2009 2:14 am
 

Weekly Message: At the moment we have top 8 in the yearlong standings, and top 5 in the 2nd half standings going through to playoffs. If you qualify for both, then you get a bye. But I want at least 11 teams in the playoffs, so if we have less than 11 I will invite the extra 1, 2 or 3 people we need. Probably something like averages, something we haven't even used, so if you've missed a week or so -- keep picking, we'll see what happens..

Hope everyone understands that. :P

Also first in the yearlong standings only will get an auto bye whether or not they meet both qualifications. Only one round bye. There are no byes for the second round or championship round.


 Yearlong Results and Standings after Week 11  (Weeks missed in bracket)

kmvenne 332 - W10: 24, W11: 19
Bucfan40 331 - W10: 24, W11: 19
3= North Harbour 317 - W10: 28, W11: 18
3= Logic 317 - W10: 20, W11: 17
starryfoxie 302 - W10: 28, W11: 15
6= Lakers2408 288 - W10: 30, W11: 23
6= The Big B 288 - W10: 25, W11: 20 (missed 1 week)
e7FROSTY 284 - W10: 0, W11: 15 (missed 1 week)
-----------------------------------
-------------------
nate75 263 - W10: 29, W11: 15
10 thousandproof 243 - W10: 19, W11: 22 (missed 2 weeks)
11 wildcatsfan1 215 - W10: 17, W11: 11 (missed 2 weeks)
12 Prophetic 214 - W10: 0, W11: 15 (missed 3 weeks)

On the yearlong standings we see a big battle for first place between Bucfan40 and kmvenne. Logic has dropped off the pace with two poor weeks and I have managed to catch up and now we look to battle for 3rd and 4th and try and get back up there. Starryfoxie is outright 5th but has Lakers2408, The Big B and e7FROSTY who all within 4 points of eachother and very close together. nate75 needs to grab one or two big weeks and he is right there for that eighth spot, or one of those three above him could miss a week but he will definitely be looking to get a top 5 spot on the 2nd half standings. Thousandproof would definitely need people to miss weeks and wildcatsfan1 and Prophetic will have to focus on the 2nd half standings and keeping their average up to keep their hopes alives for the playoffs.



 2nd Half Results and Standings after Week 11 

TheSkins8 77 - W10: 25, W11: 23
kmvenne 76 - W10: 24, W11: 19
North Harbour 75 - W10: 28, W11: 18
Lakers2408 74 - W10: 30, W11: 23
5= bucfan40 71 - W10: 24, W11: 19
-----------------------------------
-------------------
5= mcgradykid134 71 - W10: 22, W11: 18
7 Starryfoxie 70 - W10: 28, W11: 15
8= thousandproof 67 - W10: 19, W11: 22
8= The Big B 67 - W10: 25, W11: 20 
10 Logic 64 - W10: 20, W11: 17
11 nate75 63 - W10: 29, W11: 15
12 wildcatsfan1 58 - W10: 17, W11: 11
13 BNW2 49 - W10: 20, W11: 0 (missed 1 week)
14 GoCavs33 46 - W10: 23, W11: 0 (missed 1 week)
15 e7FROSTY 42 - W10: 0, W11: 15 (missed 1 week)
16 Prophetic 33 - W10: 0, W11: 15 (missed 1 week)

Everyone from TheSkins8 to wildcatsfan1 still has a chance. One good week will put any one of them near the top. 12th place is only 13 points away from 5th place, it isn't much at all. BNW2 and GoCavs33 will probably need at least two monster weeks or hope that people above them miss a week, and they will still need at least one monster week. GoCavs, Prophetic and BNW2 will need to keep picking and get their averages up and hope they can qualify for the playoffs that way.

Week 12 Picks

- Each week I will display the games that are available to pick. When we started out it was suggested that there would be quite a few 'gimme' games. To make the games harder to pick, I will attempt to only make games available to pick between closer teams in terms of records.

- You can pick up to 20 games per week. You don't have to pick 20, but the more games you pick the more points you stand to get. You will receive 2 points for a win and 1 extra point for picking the correct margin.

- Adding another aspect to a simple pick em competition, pick the margin for a bonus point.

- The margins you can choose from are as follows:
1-4, 5-8, 9-14, 15-19 and 20+.

- So an example of a pick might be: Toronto @ Orlando - Orlando by 20+


- Due to a good suggestion, I will no longer post illegal games, I will just post the games that you can pick from, to avoid any confusion.

Week 12 Games - You may pick up to 20 games, along with the provided margins, from this group of games for week 12.

- Picks should be in before Sunday 11.59pm EST. Picks may be changed up until Sunday 11.59pm EST - The picks I have then are final, before then you may chop and change as you please.

- In past weeks I have taken picks that have been posted late for whatever reason as they were before the tip-offs. I will continue to do this as I am not super strict. If this continues to happen from the some person on a regular basis I may stop being so leniant. =) Thanks.
