Folks,

Just a reminder, if you want your guess to count in the "guess the score" contest, please try to stick with a format that RoboDoug has a chance of understanding.

There are a very large number of ways to format a guess and I can't program for them all. I've expanded the number of pacer nicknames to include "naptown" and "good guys", but there are some formats that are just too ambiguous to try to parse. As a standing policy, I don't go back and edit guesses by hand to get them right.

Bad guesses like:
97-80 Pacers
or
97 Pacers
80 Knicks
or
extra things like icons don't work very well.

There are some good and bad examples in the rules thread:

There were a couple of badly formatted guesses recently.
