Notes
At the end of the Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank round, in which Tom and Kyrie tied for first, Peter tried to make Alonzo feel better by saying that he "can move up to second". Technically, when two people tie for first, the next person actually is ranked third, not second, per standard competition ranking. Yep, a bit pedantic, but us geeks need to stay true :)
