    Well, I’m not sure if I picked a game (Game 2) that was originally scheduled for Saturday by mistake or if the game was postponed to Saturday after I made my picks; but we won’t have final results until tonight.

    Of the 32 entries, no one picked all winners, but 7 missed just one game. Tonight’s game could be a determining factor in the outcome because 6 of those 7 entries picked the same team to win tonight. If that team loses, then we will have a single winner. If that team wins, then we will be using the tie-breaker to determine our winner.

    Breakout so far (pretty good picking overall!):

    1 wrong – 7
    2 wrong – 10
    3 wrong – 7
    4 wrong – 5
    5 wrong – 2
    6 wrong – 1

    After reviewing the results again tonight (my error), it appears that we had at least one person with all correct picks — that is until tonight’s Game 2. So we ended up with two entries with just 1 wrong pick: one entry with a wrong pick for Game 5 and one entry with a wrong pick for tonight’s Game 2.

    Had to go to a tie breaker to determine the winner. It was unbelievably close.

    Game 7 – Prediction: 72-19 (margin 53 pts); Actual: 77-30 (margin 47 pts) – 53-47=6 pts
    Game 4 – Prediction: 62-47 (margin 15 pts); Actual: 77-64 (margin 13 pts) – 15-13=2 pts

    WINNER is prediction for Game 4. Congrats! I’m sure you’ve figured out who you are. If I get permission from the winner, HER name will be announced on Monday.

    Thanks to all of you who entered and we hope you enjoyed the challenge!
