We have finally reached the 2013 NBA Finals. It was a long road, and we're certainly not happy about the fact that the Thunder are watching from home, but let's dig in because Spurs vs Heat should be great fun.
We have today WTLC's final contest of the 2012-13 season:
FINALS CONTEST: PREDICT THE POINT DIFFERENTIAL OF GAME 1 + PREDICT TOTAL FREE THROW ATTEMPTS
UPDATE: We have a winner!
The final score of game 1 was Spurs 92, Heat 88, for a differential of 4.
Total combined free throw attempts between the two teams was 18 for the Spurs and 17 for the Heat, for a total of 35.
Ergo, our winner with a predicted differential of 3 and free throw attempts of 38 is...TomPaine22! Congratulations, we will be contacting you in the near future to arrange delivery.
Thanks for playing, everyone. Enjoy the Finals!
