Here are the contest scores following the first game. They ranged from pretty good to "OOOPS!", but don't worry even if you're way behind at this point. Part of the nature of the contest is that it can change on a dime. 100 points are possible with each game so today's trailers may very well be tomorrow's leaders.
Feel free to double-check your own score if you wish. I don't think I'd make any significant errors but tallying 34 of these you never know. I will automatically double check anyone who's close to the top at the end of the contest to make sure no errors affecting the outcome of the contest were made.
The game results, in contest format, were:
Blazers 96 Hawks 107
Z-Bo Reb 6
JJ Ast 8
Web's Pts 18
A recap of the scoring system:
Give yourself 30 points if you picked Atlanta to win.
Give yourself 20 points if you picked Martell to be the leading (non-Zach) scorer.
You can get up to 50 bonus points using the following formula:
Figure the difference between your guesses and...
--The Blazer point total
--The Atlanta point total
--Zach's rebounds (multiply difference by 2)
--Jarrett's assists (multiply difference by 2)
Add up those differences and subtract that number from 50. That's your bonus point total. Bonus point totals cannot go into the negative.
