6/22/2021

And then there were only four teams left in the NBA Playoffs. From here on out, every decision for every team will count immensely if they’re going to the Finals. It’ll be no different in MomentRanks Play during the Conference Finals. 

The prizes for Play — daily fantasy for NBA Top Shot — have never been bigger than they are in the Conference Finals Head-to-Head Contest, sponsored by Alxo, the No. 3 Top Shot collector

Use your Top Shot Moments on MomentRanks Play in one-day Playoffs Head-to-Head contests against rival GMs for every NBA Conference Finals game. At the end of the Conference Finals, the top 50 GMs on the Round 3 Leaderboard will win over $2,000 in Top Shot Moments from Alxo or packs from the MomentRanks vault — Cool Cats Drop 1 or Series 2 Base Set packs.

We’re still awarding Top Shot Moments and packs to the GMs with the highest daily scores with Play Daily Contest. But the best NBA GMs put out their top squad day-in and day-out. There’s no better way to prove the greatness of your collection than with 10 head-to-head contests per day.

Start competing for Top Shot prizes by creating a daily playoff head-to-head for the Conference Finals of the NBA Playoffs on MomentRanks Play.

Let’s get into how to Play in the Conference Finals Head-to-Head Playoffs Contest and the Top Shot prizes that GMs will be competing for.

Conference Finals H2H Playoff Contest Leaderboard

GMs will receive one point for a win, lose one point for a loss, and receive half-point for a draw on the leaderboard. The leaderboard will be updated daily after all games have been completed.

In the case of a tie on the leaderboard within the top 50 at the end of the contest, win percentage across all games (ties included as a non-win) will be used as the tiebreaker.

Collectors are able to play 10 public head-to-head games per day. Only public head-to-heads will count toward your score on the Leaderboard. Private head-to-head games will not count toward the 10 daily head-to-heads limit or your score on the leaderboard. 

How to Play the Head-to-Head Contests

Getting started using your Top Shot Moments on Play is easy. You can get an intro to Play on our blog.

  1. Go to play.momentranks.com. Follow instructions carefully to verify your Top Shot account, so you can start using your Moments in games.
  2. Go to the head-to-head page on Play. Here, you can join an open head-to-head game posted by a fellow GM, or you can create your own public head-to-head match that will be posted to the lobby. GMs can join up to 10 public head-to-heads per day.
  3. Set your daily lineup by selecting five Moments from your collection of players playing a game today. View our Play FAQ or watch our tutorial for details on the scoring.
  4. Once the game starts, watch your players’ live scores in real-time on the My Games page.
  5. After all of the day’s games are completed, the Leaderboard scores will be updated, and you can join 10 more head-to-head games for the next game.

A few notes on Play scoring

As mentioned above, you can watch our new Play scoring for more details on how scoring works. 

For the remainder of the 2021 NBA Playoffs, Rare and Legendaries will get the same boost floor (based on rarity) of 8 points. Commons will remain at a 5 point boost floor.

We have made one change in how head-to-heads are scored: any team that does not submit a lineup will get a 0 and take a loss. The other team will record a win. Previously, these games had been canceled. Make sure to set your lineups if you join a Playoffs head-to-head contest!
