The NBA playoffs have arrived and it’s time to determine who is the best team in the league. There are several intriguing storylines this year: Will the Warriors finish their quest for back-to-back-to-back titles?nbamtcoins Can the Rockets finally get past the Warriors? Will Damian Lillard rebound from his awful playoffs last year? The East Conference is wide open and will have a new team representing them in the finals due to LeBron James joining the Lakers. Will the Raptors’ bet on Kawhi work out with a finals appearance? Is this the year The Process is finally complete in Philadelphia? Can Giannis lead the Bucks to the finals after a strong regular season? I ran an NBA 2K simulation and the results are below:

It looks like all top seeds advanced to the next round. The Warriors and Nuggets swept the Clippers and Spurs in four games. The Rockets and Blazers got past the Jazz and Thunder in six games. It’s a disappointing finish for both the Thunder and Jazz as they had high hopes of advancing past the first round. All of the top seeds in the East advanced into the second round. The Bucks and Pistons went a surprising seven games with the Bucks outlasting the Pistons in the deciding game 108-95. The Raptors swept the Magic in four games. Both the Celtics and the 76ers advanced in six games against the Pacers and Nets.

It looks like Damian Lillard was able to shake off last year’s playoff performance averaging 35 PPG and 6 APG. Russell Westbrook also performed well, averaging 28 PPG, 8 RPG, 8 APG in a losing effort. Giannis was able to put the Bucks on his back with a stat line of 26 PPG, 11 RPG, 6 APG. Playoff rookie D’Angelo Russell had a good series with 24 PPG and 6 APG. DeMarcus Cousins, another playoff rookie, had a solid 17 PPG and 8 RPG in a sweep against the Clippers.

The second round was filled with upsets with the Nuggets going down to the Blazers in six games. The Blazers have rebounded from a disappointing playoffs last year and now find themselves in the Western Conference Finals. The Warriors and the Rockets went seven games once again with the Warriors winning once again 106-90. James Harden returned for the final game from injury but was ineffective, only racking up 22 points. It looks like the whole Rockets team struggled to make shots as they shot 11/39 (28%) from deep in the game. Meanwhile, the Warriors were on fire from deep shooting 14/33 (42%). Steph Curry lead the way with 24 points and 5/12 from deep.

The Golden State Warriors made quick work of the Blazers, showing the league they are playing some of their best basketball at the right time. The five game series featured two of the best point guards in the league and they both played to that level. Steph Curry was determined to lead the Warriors to yet another finals as he dropped 49 points in the deciding game. Damian Lillard gave it his all as well but ultimately came up short. The Warriors were clicking on all cylinders as they shot 53 percent with 27 assists in game five. Steph Curry twisted his left knee at the end of game five and is considered day to day entering the finals. Click Here
