The Brooklyn Nets look to hammer down home-court advantage in the playoffs. The next step in that process: taking on a fledging Philadelphia 76ers team in Brooklyn tonight, and you know what that means: time to play “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 example: today’s line is “Brooklyn will beat Philadelphia by 7 or more points.” If you think the Nets will beat the 76ers by 7 or more points, select “YES.” If you think the Nets will win by 6 or fewer points, or the 76ers will pull off the upset, select “NO.”
For the record: This is the fourth and final meeting between the Nets and 76ers. The Nets won the first two, a 95-92 victory at home and a 109-89 blowout in Philadelphia, before dropping the most recent contest between these two teams, a 106-97 loss on March 11th. The 76ers are 31-45 and 5-3 in their last eight games. The Nets are 44-32 and starting guard Joe Johnson is a game-time decision.
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.
