Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Sorry I'm a day late.

I looked at the stats and they include Sunday's games, but the gap between 8th and 9th seems large enough, and the sample size big enough, that I doubt it changes the results.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our most popular incorrect was played by 4 contestants, including yours truly. Brad Stevens' squad had a stellar defensive rating last season, but I guess Isaiah Thomas is too much of a sieve on that end for them to maintain lofty stats. The Boston Celtics are middle of the pack in points allowed, at 14th.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our next-most popular incorrect, played by 2 of you, are the bubble boys. The Charlotte Hornets are 9th in the league in points allowed, just missing being correct for this question.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

All remaining incorrects are would-be ace hunters, and I'll reveal them from worst to best.

Unsurprisingly, that means it's time for our ol' pal trollface with the worst guess for this question. He selected his favorite Philadelphia 76ers, who check in at 23rd in points allowed.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our next incorrect is a team that's played much better lately. The Minnesota Timberwolves are rounding into form under Thibs' system, but for the first half of the year they were pretty bad on that end. They're 16th in points allowed.

Checking in at 12 on the points allowed leaderboard, we have the Los Angeles Clippers.

Our final incorrect is my beloved Atlanta Hawks. They're tied for 10th in points allowed, just missing for this question.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Somewhat amazingly, out of the 8 possible correct answers for this question, only 5 were played by the contestants. The 3 teams that went un-guessed are:

Dallas Mavericks, 3rd
Memphis Grizzlies, 4th
Chicago Bulls, T-7th

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

This question's SHEEP answer was played by a whopping ELEVEN of you. It's no secret that The Stifle Tower is the best rim protector in the league, and the Utah Jazz are the best team in the league by points allowed. They're at 96.3 ppg, clear in first by a bucket.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our next most popular correct answer was played by 7 contestants. The boring ol' San Antonio Spurs just keep getting it done year in and year out, with maybe the DPOY in Kawhi. They're 2nd in the league in points allowed, at 98.6 per game.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our next most popular correct was played by 2 contestants. The "Form a ****ing WALL!" Detroit Pistons aren't very good, but somehow they're tied for 5th in the league in points allowed.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Question 16 closes with two aces. The Toronto Raptors really hope Kyle Lowry will get right by the playoffs. For now, his team is tied for 7th in points allowed.

Re: NBA 2016-17 PEEHS

Our final correct is a team that started out rough, but have been on fire lately. According to Zach Lowe's podcast that I listened to on Friday, the Miami Heat are 22-5 in their last 27. Should Spo get some coach of the year love? Maybe. I say just give it to Pop and Belichick every year.

Caldarooni

Back-to-back aces for Caldarooni!
