I asked for help from a sports nerd, and a spreadsheet and math happened, and those best at basketballpoints whilst still affordable is what got submitted. Do not ask me to explain the math, I just know we did it.

I'm not! I have a baseball game going in the background, I'm just gonna grab stats off of ESPN or something once the games take a break.
(or more realistically off of FanDuel so that I can just get their fantasy points without having to calculate anything)

Games are over, time for results! Before I calculate everything, I believe the most optimal lineup was:

Delon Wright - PG - 60 (5400)
Zion Williamson - PF - 55.4 (8900)
Tim Hardaway - SG - 44.3 (5200)
Bam Adebayo - C - 41.3 (8300)
Buddy Hield - SF - 42.2 (6800)
Duncan Robinson - UT (SG) - 39.3 (4100)

Total - 282.5 (38700)

And congrats to Racefan for submitting the only lineup that (after being filled out to 9 slots using the optimizer) was in the money in the real contest! Cephrir's finished 0.3 points off of the money line. MURDERCAT finished 3rd, Xalxe finished 4th, Noraa 5th, Raya 6th, StD 7th, Xofelf 8th (though these don't mean that much considering between 3 and 6 of the 9 players on these lineups were chosen by the optimizer).

Round 5 Challenge

Your second-to-last challenge is called A Civil Engineer’s Dream for reasons that will be apparent very soon.

For this challenge, you’ll need to complete two puzzles: a skyscrapers puzzle and a bridges (Hashi) puzzle - which probably explains why the challenge is named as it is. You can find the rules and practice each of these kinds of puzzles HERE and HERE respectively. I will not disclose the sizes of the puzzles that you’ll be doing, but I have selected an EASY skyscrapers puzzle and a NORMAL bridges puzzle.

You will need an image editor to complete the puzzles, using your image editor to put numbers into each cell for the skyscrapers puzzle and to draw lines for the bridges puzzle. You will be ranked by the time it takes you to complete each of these puzzles and submit pictures of the completed puzzles into a second Google Form. You may not use any outside resources for this challenge.

You’ll start the clock by submitting THIS FORM. You have until 8pm on Friday ((expired on 2021-05-07 20:00:00)) to begin the challenge.
