Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Pacers-Wizards, the final score, and Russell Westbrook’s total points. Washington won 142-115, with Westbrook scoring 18. 

Subscriber Jonathan Forsythe (@jforsythe23) had the Wizards and was closest to Westbrook’s total. Nice job, Jonathan!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
