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.

Nothing like a 6-0 run with 4 treys to put you on top for the moment. This is the NBA, and it's a game of runs. You make one, they make one, and an 18 point lead with as much time to go as this season has means little. Let's see what the NBA has put into my Christmas stocking.

Miami by 12 and a South Beach SLAM
Oklahoma City by 10
Golden State by 6 (This one is a gift for the fans. Saw Cleveland vs Celtics last week & they are playing well.)
San Antonio by 8
LA Clippers by 5 (Another one that could be fun to watch)

A very Merry Christmas or otherwise happy holiday season to all.

What a great lineup. And I'm already pissed that I'm going to be at my SO's family's place, none of whom are basketball fans. And then I have a 10:00 PM flight to see my folks. So I'm basically going to miss all of it.

Miami by 8
OKC by 13
Cleveland by 7
Spurs by 14
Clippers by 19 (Santa Slam!)
