Round 2! Fight!
Not much to say. To those who forgot the rules..., check here. Remember that your picks must be in before the start of the first game of round two which is likely to be by 3:30 P.M. ET on Sunday between the Heat and Celtics.
To those who participated in this contest, you know who you are and I will post your first round scores as soon as the Spurs/Grizz series ends and as soon as you make your 2 round picks. To those who were unable to catch my first post in time and missed out, I'm sorry.
Also, your Finals and Finals MVP bonuses don't change as well as your tie-breakers, so you don't need to re-post them.
Here are your 3 new bonus questions.
1. Which team will have the highest margin of victory in a single game for round 2?
2. How many upsets will there be?
3. Which player will collect (not average) the most assist?
Here is an example of what a 2nd round entry would look like.
Chicago in 4
Boston in 6
Dallas in 7
OKC in 5 vs Spurs or OKC in 6 vs Grizz.

Also, Dwight Howard had the most rebounds, Philly the highest AST/TO ratio and Dirk Nowitzki the most points. Those are the answers to the 1st round Bonus questions. They are worth 5 points. You also get 3 points for each correctly guessed winner and 2 points for guessing the games each series went to. Remember that this applies to the first round only. Scoring will be different for each round. You can go back, double check and make sure I did your scores correctly. If not, just let me know and I'll change it.
To those who didn't get to participate in this I am sorry, it's too late for you to join, but you can still post your predictions for fun. I just won't count them. Those who didn't check back in for the 2nd round, I didn't post your scores.
