Q1a: Seeded Picks
Pick 4 NBA playoff teams whose seeds add up to *at least* 18. For example, you could take the 1st seed from the West, the 5th seeds from the East and West, and the 7th seed from the East, and your entry would be valid (1 + 5 + 5 + 7 = 18). Or, you could take the 3rd through 6th seed from one conference, and that would be valid (3 + 4 + 5 + 6 = 18).

Q1b: At-Large Pick
Pick 1 At-Large team*. Your At-Large pick cannot duplicate one of your seed picks.

Q1 Points:
20 pts for every playoff win
-2 pts for every playoff loss
40 bonus pts for winning a Conference Title
35 bonus pts for winning the NBA Championship
* At-Large picks will earn slightly fewer points per category


Q2: Finals Picks
Select one team as the NBA Champion (correct choice worth 60 pts).
Select one team as the NBA Runner-Up (correct choice worth 15 pts).

Note: There are no restrictions for your Q2 picks. You may pick teams you selected in Q1 or teams you shunned; you can even select the same team as Champ and as Runner-Up.

Picks lock first playoff game tipoff, Sat Apr 13 1130a Pacific
