[Final Update] PtR Playoff Predictions Tournament: Conference Finals

 

Fail-owned-trophy-fail_medium

The scores are out for Round 3, fellas. Some got burned, some basked in the glory brought by a windfall of points. Let's see who went up and who went stumbling back to earth.

Just to remind everybody of our scoring system, courtesy of resident numbahs guru, BlaseE:

SCORING

R represents Round

If you pick the correct team and correct number of games:
R1: 10 points

If you picked the correct team but incorrect number of games:
R1: 8 points Minus 2 points for every game off per my previous chart

If you picked the wrong winner but are within 3 games on the spectrum:
R1: 3, 2, or 1 points depending on the number of games you are off

For each round, picking the correct winner is worth additional points:
R2: 3
R3: 6
R4: 9

For each round, picking the incorrect team but being within the 3 game range is worth additional points:
R2: 1
R3: 2
R4: 3

In each round the maximum points are:
R1: 8 10 point games = 80
R2: 4 13 point games = 52
R3: 2 16 point games = 32
R4: 1 19 point game = 19
Total=183 points

 

Checking in with the StatGeek Experts

Go here for the latest update on TrueHoop's statgeek smackdown, from which PtR's own tournament was derived from.  I'm not quite sure about the scoring, but I'm guessing a statgeek gets 5 points for predicting the correct winner of a series, and an additional 2 points for predicting the correct number of games (so the maximum score per series one can get is 7).

You can also see each expert's picks in every series in the TrueHoop StatGeek Smackdown page.

 

The Scores

Round Three - Strictly PtR only

Fanobili, Heman and TD21 make hay in this round, with the three topscoring for 28 points each. Only 28 out of the 42 players that started out were able to submit their picks for the conference finals.

Round Three - PtR vs. TrueHoop StatGeeks

Jeff Ma is proving to be quite the statgeek, topscoring for his bunch, followed closely by Kevin Pelton and... surprise, surprise, the unpredictable yet profoundly amusing Mom of Henry Abbott!  Also, Haralabos Voulgaris and John Hollinger suck.
