Re: Enter the Dragan - [40-22] Frustrating loss in Chicago

I guess the Jimmy Butler trade worked out a little bit better for Chicago in this game than in real life.


Valor wrote:If only the Bulls could play like this irl..... :lol:

Nice (sim) win over the Spurs, Booker doing it on both ends (Y)

The sim engine in this game is a bit weird.

For example, the Pacers arguably should be better than the Bulls. But they are at completely opposite ends of the conference standings.

Kris Dunn, Zach LaVine. Bobby Portis, Lauri Markkanen, Mohamed Bamba, Cameron Payne, Denzel Valentine, Thomas Bryant, Cristiano Felicio, Anthony Morrow, Jarred Vanderbilt, Tyson Chandler, Paul Zipser

vs

Myles Turner, Victor Oladipo, Markelle Fultz, Jaylen Brown, Al Jefferson, Jeff Teague, Michael Porter Jr, Cole Aldrich, Wendell Carter, Grayson Allen, Jerami Grant, Ersan Ilyasova, Archie Goodwin, Glenn Robinson III, Andrew Jones


Both Chicago and Orlando are defying the odds this season, somehow.

Every season we seem to be improving a little bit.

2016-17 - 43 wins - eliminated by the Warriors in the first round (4-0)
2017-18 - 47 wins - eliminated by the Warriors in the conference semis (4-1)
2018-19 - 50+ wins? - eliminated by the Warriors in the conference finals? (4-2?)

Finishing with the second or third seed will mean avoiding the Warriors until the conference finals. So we're on schedule to take another step forward in this cycle.

Len, Bender and Jeanne are all skinny seven-footers. They often pull off weird landings when they jump off the ground for blocks or dunks.

Thon Maker would be proud :lol:

Looks like quite a duel, but the good guys won in the end. Any temptation to try and really go off with Booker, as he did when he scored the 70 points?

I've thought about it. But I do struggle to get him to score 20 points a game consistently at the moment. I'm sure it'll become more possible when he enters his prime.

I do remember dropping 86 with Kevin Durant a few years ago, but scoring was a lot easier for me on 2k13.

Good couple of wins there.

It'd probably take a big night from three-point range to get Booker those numbers. If you're still playing an old school type of inside-out game, it does make it tougher.

I was expecting to close out the season by battling OKC and Portland for seeds 3-5. But this mini win streak has suddenly put us into contention with the Clippers for the second seed.

Hoping for a big run come Playoff time. Will you be playing all the games then, or still alternating with a simmed game? Or if you're on the brink of elimination, will you skip simming in order to control your destiny?

I've definitely found a groove offensively in recent games. Particularly with Jeanne and Chriss off the bench.

We have a game against the Warriors right before the playoffs start. That will be the real test of how good this team is.

Yep. That winning streak really shot us up from the fourth seed to the second seed quickly. All the challengers seem to have faltered a bit during the same period.

We are a game ahead of the Clippers, whilst the Thunder and Blazers have fallen back to the pack a bit.

Our final four games of the season:

vs Pacers
vs Sixers (sim)
vs Warriors
@ Hornets (sim)

The Pacers and Hornets are propping up the eastern conference, so they should be easy wins. The Sixers are leading the eastern conference and it's a sim game, so a likely loss.

And the Warriors are leading the western conference and I've only ever beaten them once in three seasons in this game. So there is a good chance we go 2-2 there.


The race to be our first round opponents is almost more exciting. Seattle, San Diego, Houston and San Antonio are separated by a couple of games in 7th-10th.

Not a bad position to be in at all. With your influence via playing the games throughout the Playoffs, you should definitely be contenders.

We're definitely a season or two ahead of schedule of where I expected this team to be. But now that we're in this position, I want to go as far as possible.

Playing every game should help with that. And probably give me a better idea of what my players' stats would look like if I played all 82 games :wink:

The 76ers got you in the simulation as expected, but hey, you can flip the switch come Playoff time. Besides, they need to worry about following through and making it out of the East. Hope you can finish strong in the last two games of the regular season!

Some interesting award winners there. I'm not so optimistic about the real Cameron Payne, if I'm being completely honest! Looks like you can hang with the Warriors. If you can find a way to make Durant's life miserable and someone look Booker can go off, you stand a good chance of coming out of the West.

I just realised that Payne was taken the pick after Devin Booker in the 2015 draft. It's a shame that he hasn't lived up that draft position in real life. I guess injuries haven't helped.

Thankfully we are on the opposite side of the bracket to the Warriors. So I'm hoping that someone like Oklahoma City or Portland can knock them out so I don't have to face them (If we make it that far).

I was a bit worried in the first half because they really did get the jump on us.

No one really took control at the offensive end for us, so we had to rely on some lockdown defense in the second half to get the job done.

Looks like Lob City are destined to come up short in video games, too. Fortunately, and on a brighter note, the Suns have taken care of business.

Video games can be pretty accurate to real life sometimes. The Clippers traded for Melo and got themselves a first round exit :lol:

I was pretty shocked that we managed to actually contain Anthony Davis and get the sweep. The Timberwolves should be a bit tougher though, with KAT, Butler and Wiggins.

If KAT performs anything like he did in last season's Playoffs in real life, it might be easier than expected!
