The Draft

POWERED BY

The sagas of Aaron Rodgers and Julio Jones have almost turned our attention away from the drama of the NBA and NHL playoffs. Almost.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Blazers-Nuggets, the final score, and the leading scorer in the game. Denver won 128-109, with Portland’s Damian Lillard scoring a game-high 42.

Subscriber Mordechai Zuckerman had the Nuggets and was closest to the final score. Nice going, Mordechai!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
