    (Last season I bet against the Kings on one occasion and, as a loyal fan, hated myself for doing so. And I said I would never do that again. However, times have changed and I hope favoring the opponent now will bring us some luck!). Go Kings!!!

    Now let the Kings get the rest they need (and deserve? Perhaps)
    before we play in Detroit in 3 days.

    Ron, thank you for doing this game! So far this year, the prediction game is much more fun than the real games! You're doing a great job of running this and it's much appreciated.

    And I missed a game!!! Lol, not to happen again! I figure Kings go 0-3 on this trip with some SERIOUS soul searching for their return home.

    Ron - You deserve a medal for doing this. :)

    I'm bowing out of this game, at least for now. I cannot in good conscience ever root against my Kings and let's be honest. They just aren't gonna win many games. Just wanted you to know why I am choosing to no longer participate. :)

    I hear ya but my take on it is I pretty much predict they will lose every game. If I’m wrong then I’m really happy because they won but if they lose (like they normally do) then at least I get a consolation prize. Win win!

    Game 9 -

    Our hosts, the Detroit Pistons, are pretty much on fire!
    They defeated both the Warriors & the Clippers...

    So why do I feel like a surprise W is coming up?
    Perhaps it's the fact that our opponents are playing back-to-back, while we are ptetty well rested, but mostly - it's because I feel that our younglings are fed-up with losing. They will fight their ***s off to get a W this time.

    Am I dellirious?


    Think you know better?

    Well, I was wrong...
    We're still on that streak.
    (But that was the end of that road trip)

    Tonight it was @New Era and @alonshin who were on fire!

    Both nailed the Kings' score on the money,
    with @New Era setting a season record in daily prediction points (85), missing Pistons' score by 1 point,
    and @alonshin getting 73, missing opponent's score by 2...
    BTW, "The Flatliner" did even better (82), missing each team's score by 2, but nailing the point margin!

    Tonight's Summary:

    Daily Winners:

    This was @New Era 's 2nd win this season.
