Telemachus Prediction Game 2016-17: (Prediction-) Game Over!! See You in a New Thread Next Season

Well, nothing about this game was ever really in question
from early on (the 2nd minute...), except for the uncertainty
about Harden indeed making a QUADRUPLE DOUBLE,
(including TOs) which, I'll save you the suspense, HE DID.

Prediction Game Summary:

Daily

The prediction game tonight was truely flat and ugly:
All 4 of the (correct) L predictors scored an identical 40...
Pretty much all the W predictors scored the same old 0...

No one guessed neither the overall high score (128-135)
or the medium-size (7pts) margin.

I feel awkward about counting all 4 non-losers tonight
as shared "Daily Winners" (I mean... come-on...),
but that's the way it works...

Daily Winners:

Monthly

The winner of April predictions is still not decided.
@Telemachus is leading by mere 40's on 3 runner-ups -
@SLAB, @Glenn and @origkds.
His lead is only in the 70's on 2 other KFs (@Ron & @VF21)

Felt good to crush an opponent for once.... :)

Prediction Summary:
upload_2017-4-12_12-11-55.png

Daily

A new low tonight - only 6 participants.
This should pretty much be expected, IMHO, as the games have less and less competitive value...

Still, 5 of the 6 correctly predicted the W, while @Ron (yours truely)
was also close to the actual large margin to bring home 52 pts,
and @Tomcat was 1pt off the Suns' score, for a round 50.
@VF21 scored 43 at 3rd.

This was @Ron's 6th win of the season.

As tight as it gets!
The @SLAB, @Telemachus & @Glenn trio is neck to neck, with 133, 132 and 129 points this month, respectively.
@Ron (102), @VF21 (99) and @origkds (85) could all still take podium spots.
