The Brooklyn Nets take on the Los Angeles Clippers tonight in a late game in Los Angeles, and you know what that means… It’s time for “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. For today’s streak, we’re doing something a little different: while in each past game the line was about team performance, tonight’s is about the point guard matchup between the Nets’ Deron Williams and the Clippers’ Chris Paul. The line is “Deron Williams will have more points + assists than Chris Paul.” If you think Deron’s points plus assists will equal more than CP3’s, select “YES.” If you think Chris Paul will have more points plus assists, select “NO.”
For the record: Chris Paul is averaging 26.6 points+assists per game this season. Deron Williams is averaging 26.0 points+assists per game this season. BUT: Since the All-Star break, Williams is averaging 31.5 points+assists per game, while Paul is averaging 26.1 points+assists in the same time.
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.
