The NBA Playoffs are amongst us, so it’s time to have another bracket challenge! Why you may say? Why not! Below will be a picture of the bracket and our form you will submit in the comments section. The scoring for the rounds will be as follows:
2 Points for the correct winner and 1 Point for the correct amount of games per series in the first round.
4 Points for the correct winner and 2 Points for the correct amount of games per series in the second round.
8 Points for the correct winner and 4 Points for the correct amount of games per series in the Conference Finals.
16 Points for the correct winner and 8 Points for the correct amount of games in the NBA Finals.
Our tiebreaker will be an NBA Finals MVP pick.
Our second tiebreaker will be the score in the deciding NBA Finals game.
Our third tiebreaker will be a potato sack race around DHS’s track.
Note: Points for predicting the correct amount of games for a series are only eligible if the correct winner of the series is selected.

2011 NBA Playoffs Bracket
Second Note: In each round, where it says winner, there is also a letter and a number associated with it (as you see, the winner of Bulls vs. Pacers is E1). There is a spot in the next round that team’s name should be written in (so if you have the Bulls winning the first round, they are E1 and “Chicago Bulls,” “Chicago,” or “Bulls” must replace E1 in the Second Round section).
