2021 Event Summary: Basketball

Status: Locked

RULES: BASKETBALL

Q1 2021/2022 Regular Season
We've divided the teams by Conference and seeded them 1 thru 10. Your job is to pick 4 teams (in each conference) that total 22 or fewer seed points. Your 8 TOTAL teams will earn you points as follows:

....2pts for each regular season win
...11pts for a high playoff berth, seeds 1-6
....4pts for a low playoff berth, seeds 7-10 (mini-tournament teams)
....7pts for each playoff round win*
....8pts for a conference title
...13pts for an NBA Championship

* Points are for winning each playoff round that is won, not each playoff game. The NBA mini-tournament between seeds 7 thru 10 does not count as a round.

Picks will lock Oct 25 at 4p Pacific!

Q2 2022 Playoffs
A total of 16 teams make the playoffs - 8 in each conference.

The 2022 teams are seeded as shown below:
E-1 Miami Heat
E-2 Boston Celtics
E-3 Milwaukee Bucks
E-4 Philadelphia 76ers
E-5 Toronto Raptors
E-6 Chicago Bulls
E-7* (Brooklyn/Cleveland)
E-8* (Brooklyn/Cleveland/Atlanta/Charlotte)

W-1 Phoenix Suns
W-2 Memphis Grizzlies
W-3 Golden State Warriors
W-4 Dallas Mavericks
W-5 Utah Jazz
W-6 Denver Nuggets
W-7* (Minnesota/LAC)
W-8* (Minnesota/LAC/NewOrleans/SanAntonio)

* The 7 and 8 seeds in the playoffs will be determined by the NBA's play-in tournament; we are not picking those games and will not reward points for them.

Pick 5 NBA playoff teams whose seeds add up to *at least* 17.

For example, you could take the 1st seed from both conferences, the 4th seed from both conferences, and the 7th seed from the East, and your entry would be valid (1 + 1 + 4 + 4 + 7 = 17). Or, you could take the 2nd through 6th seed from one conference, and that would be valid (2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 = 20).

Points:
5 pts for every playoff win
-1 pts for every playoff loss
15 bonus pts for a Finals berth
15 bonus pts for winning the NBA Championship

Picks are open before the play-in tournament begins and will lock at first actual playoff tip, Sat Apr16 10a Pacific
