Question NBA ELIMINATION CHALLENGE GAME - Week 1

ok guys, its time to start a brand new game here at RF!
its called ELIMINATION CHALLENGE!!!

here are the rules;
every Thursday (since these are usually the best games of the week, and are televised), you will bet on ONE thing;
1) pick ONE team that you think will win on that night.

thats it.

all you need to do is get it right to move on to the next round.
if you get it wrong, you are ELIMINATED!
I will post a ranking scoreboard every week along with the poll and the schedule for the Thursday night games...
the one player left at the end without being eliminated will be crowned the winner, and will receive a nice prize.

ready? go!!!!

Here is the NBA schedule for Thursday Jan 13.
use the poll to select the ONE team you think will win on that night... the correct pick will move you to the second round, an incorrect pick will cause you to be ELIMINATED!


Washington 10-26 (Road: 0-18)
@
Minnesota 9-30 (Home: 7-11)


Orlando 25-12 (Road: 10-7)
@
Oklahoma City 25-13 (Home: 14-6)


Miami 30-9 (Road: 15-5)
@
Denver 21-16 (Home: 16-4)


submit your ONE choice via the poll at the top! the deadline for entries is Thursday night @8pm... if you do not make your pick by then you will not be able to participate in the game.
Also, this game runs on a week to week basis, so in order to keep moving forward to the next rounds, you must play every week! its quite easy though, its only one selection per week as long as you guess correctly.

Good Luck, see you in the next round!

it's not a bad choice. They're at home against Washington and they don't win on the road.

Also, Miami will be playing on the 2nd night of a back to back, Denver plays solid at home, and I suspect Melo will want to play well against his buddies.

It's a tough call. I'm tempted to pick Minnesota. Gonna think about it a bit.

I'm more baffled at picking Orlando to beat OKC in OKC. Far from a sure thing to say the least.

Washington is 0-18 on the road, that made my decision pretty easy even if they're playing Minnesota. The other games are crap shoots imo, all good teams.

Lol minus that game, I knew I wasn't going to bid on those 2 teams. The others are hard to tell imo.

There should be more info, like if the games are a back-to-back or something.

I want to say Orlando or Miami.

Carmelo might get traded. There's some info for you. Westbrook might fall out of bed and sprain his wrist.

There are three games. Surely we can all look into some of the variables on our own.
