After a rough seven-minute stretch turned a close contest against the Atlanta Hawks into a laughable loss, the Nets embark on an eight-game road trip, starting tonight against the Detroit Pistons. Along with a shot at redemption, you know what this means: The BK Game Streak LIVES ON!
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 example: today’s line is “Brooklyn will beat Detroit by 3 or more points.” If you think Brooklyn will win by three or more points, select “YES.” If you think Brooklyn will win by one or two points, or Detroit will win, select “NO.”
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.
A little bit of gamesmanship: our two leaders decided not to risk their streak last night, passing on the Hawks-Nets prediction. Will they try to stretch to 9 tonight?
