The Eastern Conference Finals are here and it's Cleveland versus Toronto for a shot at the NBA Finals! Will the Cavs return for a shot at redemption? Or will the Raptors reach the finals for the first time?
My pick is Cavs in 6.
Here are the rules:
1. For each round of the NHL and NBA playoffs, I will select one series for the challenge. The participants must pick the team they think will win and the number of games they think the series will be settled in.
2. If the team you selected wins the series, you get 2 points.
3. If the team you selected wins AND you correctly picked the number of games, you get an additional 2 points for a total of 4.
4. If your team wins but you are off on the number estimate by 1 game you get 1 point for a total of 3.
5. If your team wins but you are off by 2 or more games you receive no additional points for a total of 2 points.
6. If your team loses, you can earn a consolation point for either A) having the number of games right or B) if the series goes to 7 games.
In this way, it is possible to earn anywhere from 0 to 4 points for each series for a maximum total of 32 points across 8 series (4 NHL, 4 NBA).
Currently @DucktheFodgers is winning the NBA/NHL Playoff Challenge with 3 points across the first two challenges. This challenge is still wide open, folks!
