The TrueHoop Stat Geek Smackdown -- Update


With three out of five series completed, only three of eight stat geeks have yet to whiff.

Everybody got the Lakers and the Cavaliers, but only John Hollinger, David Berri and Kevin Pelton predicted that the Mavericks would knock off the Spurs.

Hollinger and Berri are tied for first, having each twice picked the correct number of games.  Pelton is four points behind.

Sandy Weil and Stephen Ilardi can close some serious ground on everybody else if the Heat manage to knock off the Hawks. And Jeff Ma is the lone expert who can profit from a Rocket victory. What's more, he picked them in 6, and so will be right up near the top of the leaderboard if the Rockets win tomorrow night.
