Pick the four teams that will advance out of the round and the number of games each series will require: San Antonio vs. Houston, Boston vs. Washington, Cleveland vs. Toronto and Golden State vs. the Utah/Los Angeles Clippers winner. One extra point on winning picks for getting the number of games right. Another extra point for picking the top points scorer in each series. The winner receives NBA 2K17.

The scores are in the previous discussion. How did I not pick Westbrook to lead his series in scoring?

Ufez scores two more points by picking Utah's upset in 7 games, climbing into the lead at 17. No one had Chris Paul as the highest series scorer.

Now that we know what tbd stands for, it's time to make the final choice. The real question is whether or not Utah can steal a game from Warriors. I think a lot of us are going to look really dumb if Utah wins the series. Golden State in 5, Curry +1
