Kings' first losing streak longer than 2 games... :confused:
No shame though. T'was a good game.

@chief bromden was the only one who predicted this L
(and scored 44)

Of the rest of us, optimists, @burekijogurt nailed the Kings' score exactly, for 15
and @Tetsujin missed the Clippers' score by 1 point, for 10.

Our "own" Darren Collison almost took it away, but it was a W at last!

12 predictors tonight, with 11 W-predictions
and the customary L-prediction coming from @chief bromden...

No super-accurate predictions tonight.
@LoungeLizard nailed the Pacers' score and predicted a small(ish) margin to get the evening-best: 59 points.
@El Paljasso nailed the Kings' score and tallied 55 for 3rd.
@Ron squeezed in the middle, being fairly close on all accounts, and had 56 at 2nd.

How well are we doing, on average, in our predictions?

Right now we're on a streak of 4 straight games (and 7 out of last 8)
of being over-optimistic in our average predictions.
(Predicting a greater margin than the actual result)

Earlier in the season we had an opposite tendency.
For instance, in the Kings' 5-game winning streak (games 5 to 9)
we had a parallel 5-game streak of being over-pessimistic on average.
