Simulation Result: Chicago Bulls Win in Six Games
Real Result: Bulls leading series 3-2
Nets Leading Performer: Joe Johnson, 22.7 PPG, 5.0 RPG and 7.5 APG
Bulls Leading Performer: Luol Deng, 23 PPG and 9.6 RPG
Notable Stat 1: Bulls scored over 120 points twice.
Notable Stat 2: Bulls out-rebounded the Nets by 23 in Game 2.
Notable Stat 3: Nets shot 39 percent in Game 6.
Perhaps Nate Robinson's real-life Game 4 outburst wasn't so outrageous after all, as our video game series saw Robinson spark the Bulls offense in multiple games.
Along with the Bulls offense coming alive in our simulation, Brooklyn's offense died. Joe Johnson, Deron Williams and Brook Lopez all had fine series', but the Nets received little offensive production from anybody else.
The key from our results, though, was the Bulls offense. If it can produce in reality like it did in our experiment, then Chicago should be able to pull off the minor upset.
The Nets, on the other hand, need to win the battle on the glass if they are to comeback in this series, according to NBA 2K13.
Brooklyn was able to win Game 4 in real-life in part because they were the better rebounding team. Our simulation saw the Nets losing all of the games it was out-rebounded in.
