How will the NBA Playoffs Challenge work?

Instead of merely selecting who will win each Playoffs matchup, fans must not only choose the winner of each series, but also select the number of games each series will go (e.g. Warriors win the series in 4 games to 2). Points will be awarded on accuracy and results.

To keep engagement levels high, fans will have the chance to revise picks after each round for reduced points. This mechanism will allow fans to continuously re-engage with their bracket throughout the postseason.

Who can play?

The game is open to fans in the US, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, France, Germany, Spain and the Philippines!
