After only five rounds the winner of the initial NBA survivor contest is ZAG!
Zag was last, but not close to being least. He was the winner and sole survivor when he picked Detroit, and runnerup Grace picked San Antonio. Congratulations Zag! I pronounce you the initial NBA Survivor, 'CHAMPION!'

Congratulations Zag!!!! Well done!

NEW CONTEST

I thought of having this type of contest two years ago during the season. My plan was to use Pacers games and to have eight contests, of ten game each, then have all the contest winners compete for the championship during the NBA playoffs. I didn't do it because of the time commitment involved.

Doing it just for the playoffs and having everyone play for the championship isn't that time consuming though. The fact is, it was a lot less time consuming than I thought it would be. I never thought it would be over in five rounds!

It turned out to be a simple but fun game, and now some posters would like to play again. Me too! But we have an NBA Survivor champion, so I'll call this one Pacers Digest Survivor.

And here it is, for the second time. I had finished the first post and was scrolling down checking it out and hit the wrong key and it was all gone. Undo only restored the smilies up above. I HATE DOING LONG POSTS TWICE!

PACERS DIGEST SURVIVOR
---------------------------------------
PICK ONE TEAM ONLY Games are Tuesday April 29
Dallas at New Orleans 7:00 PM
Philadelphia at Detroit 7:00 PM
Utah at Houston 9:30 PM
Phoenix at San Antonio 9:30 PM
--------------------------------------

HOW TO PLAY
Pick a winner of one of the basketball games above, and you survive to the next round. The person who survives the longest is the contest winner. (See rule 6)

NBA SURVIVOR RULES
[1]You are required to name the winner of one of the presented games to survive to the next round. (See rule 6)

[2]To give everyone time to make their pick there will be an off day between games.

[3]Your guess has to be made by the posted starting time of the team you pick.

[4]If you make more then one pick, all picks have to win for you to survive.

[5]No tie breaker. (If it comes down to two or more people and the teams they pick lose. They are co-champs.

[6]Contest is generally only open to those who make picks in the first round. However, I will allow one exception. If you miss picking in the first round, I will allow you to pick in the second round. However, for you to survive you have to correctly pick the winners of all the round two games 'IF' there are at least two games that night.

If Detroit loses, 14 of us go down, if New Orleans goes down, nine more go down.

And if it would have been last night probably everyone would have picked Boston and no one would survive.
