Outside of a misstep in Game 3, our NBA 2K17 simulations of the Eastern Conference Finals have been spot on. And how was our NBA 2K17 computer supposed to know a bug was going around the Cavaliers that got to LeBron James? Computers can’t do everything, you know.
LeBron and the Cavs got back to business in Tuesday’s Game 4 win, so let’s hand the fate of the series back to NBA 2K17 and simulate Game 5 to see what happens. Does Kelly Olynyk and Boston have one last desperate performance at the Garden in them to extend this series to six? Or should Dick’s Sporting Goods go ahead and put all that championship merchandise back on sale?
You can see the full simulation over on our Facebook page if you want to see the whole thing. Now let’s see what the Celtics could muster in a must-win at home.
