Prediction contest for Kings 8 seeding games

Hi KingsFans!

Anyone missed my prediction game?

I am running a short prediction contest for our 8 games in the Orlando bubble!
And this time it's on a Google Form.


Just follow the link and enter your predictions for all 8 games:
Link to the prediction form

Your email will serve as your ID for the contest.

You may predict all of the games at once, or only tonight's game... It's up to you.

Even if you predict all the games at once, you may later use the same link again
to post changed predictions to any remaining game you choose.

Only the most recent prediction for each of the games will count as your prediction
(provided that it wasn't submitted after the game has started...)

The scoring method is the same one that I used in my old prediction game.
(I will remind you of it later tonight in this thread)

We have 5 entries so far:
@Capt. Factorial
@Ron
@Spike
@Tetsujin
@LoungeLizard

Anyone else? (before we close tonight's window of prediction)

Ping some of the others to join us...
Where are you, @VF21, @Telemachus, @chief bromden?

And whst about you, @DesertFox, @kingsboi, @The_Jamal, @SacTownKid, @Sluggah, @midtowner, @macadocious jos, @Joshoua, @LPKingsFan, @Hoovtrain ?

For this 1st night I think we can delay the closing of the window until 5:15pm...
Are you OK with that?
I'll pick it up for the second game if that possible. Just glad to see you back, missed you!

So glad you're back. I wish I had seen this in time.
You are still on time! :)

None of us really scored anything... :oops:
(LoungeLizard has 1 point, and the rest of us boast a resounding ZERO)

It's yours for the taking...
Just use the link and predict the rest of the games (starting with the Magic tonight)

Don't forget that you can use the form to post amended predictions (for any game not yet played),
and only the last prediction for each game will count.


AAMOF, I may revise my own predictions right now.

None of us predicted the L (again...).

Here's the summary of things:

Here's the full prediction matrix:

And here's the scoring matrix:

When the leader has 10 (out of 200...) you all can still safely join and win it... :D

Leaderboard:
(not much happening with no points to go around...
no one soaring, no one plummeting. we're boring...)

That loss was SOOOOOO annoying!!! Maddening!!! :mad:

I mean... we had them. It was ours for the taking.
A statement W against Luka and the Mavs...
A new hope for making the 9th spot and squeezing into the playoffs after so many years...
And then... THAT. :oops:


It really seems like the Kings don't WANT to win, don't WANT to advance to the post-season...
Such a loser mentality...
It's really beyond my comprehension. Ugh!


In our little game here, we were quite evenly split
between those who predicted a (well deserved :mad:) surprise-win (4 of us)
and those who anticipated a loss to the best offense in the NBA (3 of us).

Hence, 3 of us scored fairly high, for the 1st time.

That's our prediction matrix (past and future):

I remind you you may alter your future predictions
by re-submitting the form, with new predictions for the 5 remaining games.


And here is the scoring matrix:

1596610398606.png

Note how @chief bromden is tied for first place despite missing game 1,
sharing the top with tonight's highest scorer, @Spike.
(Also note how your truly - @Ron - is dead last... :confused:)


The shifts in rankings can be seen here:
