Line: Los Angeles Lakers +13.5

2012-13 Records:

Record vs. each other (2012-13 season): Spurs 1-0 vs. the Lakers this season.

  • Lakers are spriling downward at a rapid pace this season. They’ve lost 5 of their last 6 and have dropped to 4 games back of the 8th and final playoff spot in the West.
  • The Spurs have won 10 straight games at home and are 14-2 overall at home this season.
  • Kobe Bryant is coming off a game where he scored 20 points against the Houston Rockets, modest by his standards. Kobe had gone 17 straight games with scoring 27 or more before last night.
  • The Lakers will be again without their 3 best big men, Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol and Jordan Hill. Steve Blake is also still out due to injury.
  • To show just how much the Lakers have fallen, the line in this game has the Lakers as 13 1/2 point underdogs.

  1. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something relating to this.

  2. Brady You should be able to put snradatd HTML tags in all of the copy fields (question, answer, main, result, correct, incorrect). So depending on what you’re trying to accomplish, that might be enough for you!@Kishen The jQuery plugin is also available on github at @Glenn Right now, question chaining is not possible. It is an interesting idea, so I will add it to my list of potential features to include. @Bruce I’m guessing you’re using the WordPress version of the plugin? If so, in the main listing of quizzes, look for the ID at the beginning of the line for the quiz you want to put on a page. In the post or page you want to include the quiz on, place [slickquiz id=X] in the post where you want the quiz to be. Make sure you replace the X with the ID you found in the quiz listing.@Oliver Lock Right now the quiz isn’t set up for weighted questions, I’m sure it’d be possible. You’d likely have to include a weight value for each question in your quizJSON object and then alter the calculateLevel method to factor in the question weights. I’d love to see your implementation do you have a github fork by any chance?@mike Simply placing an older version in your plugins directory should not cause any issues. If you fully uninstall the plugin via the wordpress interface though, it will delete all quiz data stored in the database. Were you ever able to get the quiz running again?@kathi wheeler Were you able to get this working? If not, could you like me to an example page on your site where you’re trying to add a quiz?@vkulkarni It’s definitely possible to integrate the jQuery plugin with a database or CMS. I’d suggest looking at the WordPress version of the plugin for example CMS like implementations. Basically, as long as you can load your quizJson to the page it doesn’t matter if it’s coming from a DB or hardcoded. @Michal Right now there isn’t an option to only display a set # of questions. I have had this request before though, and it is on my list so stay tuned. @Chris Thanks so much! I’d love to see your implementation!@GTP Thanks for the comment regarding jQuery versions and live() vs on(). The plugin has since been updated with the newest version of jQuery and is now using on() s.@vaishali It’s definitely possible to save scores to a database. As mentioned above, I’d suggest looking at the WordPress version of the plugin for example CMS like implementations. Basically, I’d suggest sending an AJAX request to your backend in the completeQuiz method after the scores are calculated and levels and ranks are determined. @salah I would have to see an example of this happening. There are certainly ways to optimize, some options might depend on what you’re trying to accomplish. You should try passing the JSON object right into the plugin, instead of loading a separate config file like so: $(‘#slickQuiz’).slickQuiz({json: {YOUR_JSON_HERE}});@Dennis Right now there isn’t an import / export option. I’m guessing you’re using the WordPress version of the plugin? That’s not a bad idea for a feature, so I’ll add it to my list. @Ruth Deutsch Currently the first lines of the correct and incorrect response messages are being styled by line 119-123 in the css/master.css stylesheet. You should be able to override those with your preferences.
