After dropping a close one to the Los Angeles Clippers, the 40-29 Brooklyn Nets travel to Phoenix to take on the 23-47 Phoenix Suns tonight. Along with a chance to start off the road trop 3-1, that means another shot at “The BK Game Streak,” where you can build a streak predicting how well the Nets will do in each game for a chance to win a $200 Amazon Gift Card!
The game is as simple as it sounds:
1. The contest relies on a standard betting line for each game. (Note: you must be logged into Facebook to play.) To make your prediction, select YES or NO to agree or disagree. Today’s line is “Brooklyn will hold Phoenix to 85 or fewer points.” If you think the Suns will score 85 or fewer points tonight, select “YES.” If you think they’ll score more than 85 points, select “NO.”
For the record: The Suns average 94.3 points per game with the 10th-fastest pace in the NBA, but have scored just 79 and 86 in the past two games against the Washington Wizards and Minnesota Timberwolves. They’re also without Marcin Gortat, Jermaine O’Neal, Channing Frye, and possibly Jared Dudley.
2. String together wins and try to get the longest streak of correct predictions before the end of the NBA regular season. Follow game results on the leaderboard on the right sidebar.
At the end of the season, we’ll award three prizes to the players with the best three streaks: The Gold Net Trophy (longest streak) and a $200 Amazon Gift Card will be awarded to first place, the Silver Net Trophy (second-longest streak) and a $50 Amazon Gift Card to second place, and the Bronze Net Trophy (third-longest streak) $25 Amazon Gift Card and a Bronze Net Trophy to third place.
