Howard_T hits the slam dunk exactly for 30 points, leaping into first place. Tron7 gets all six games right and two scores within the margin. I drop in the standings despite a good week. A pox on your houses.

Pick the winner and spread for each game. Score 5 points if the team wins, 3 more points if your spread is close and another 2 if you hit the spread exactly.

At your option, make one game a slam dunk to triple your score in victory or lose 5 points in defeat.

Read the detailed rules on the first week's post.

A six-game week highlighted by Oklahoma City going to Cleveland with both teams leading their divisions and currently on hot streaks. The L.A. Clippers, starting to put things together, face a strong test in San Antonio, which is undefeated at home. Phoenix visits Golden State right after its first loss of the season. Impending retiree Kobe Bryant gets more TV time as Houston comes to Staples Center to play the 3-21 L.A. Lakers.

I did not realize that I had hit the San Antonio spread on the nose. That's 2 spreads (Boston over Chicago by 5 was the other) in one week. The bad news is that 25% of my points have come in one week, which does not auger well for the future. We will press on nonetheless.
