NBA 2k12 Blog: Simulating Turkey Day Games

NBA 2k12 Blog: Simulating Turkey Day gamesAfter a long day of stuffing, ham, bread, pie, turkey, and other meats and starches, the typical NBA fan usually kicks back with their feet up and tunes into some late night match-ups. Thanks to this marvelous lockout, we don't/ didn't have that this year. All that's on is 30 Rock, football, and some collegiate games on the hardwood, but no NBA. So why not supplement with some NBA 2k12 Simulation?
I went ahead and simulated the games through today to get a feel of what may or could happen.
Here are the breakdowns:
Philadelphia 76ers @ Atlanta Hawks: 
Score: 107-98 PHI
Points- Elton Brand (30), Joe Johnson (23)
Rebounds- Elton Brand (13), Josh Smith (11)
Assists- Lou Williams (8), Joe Johnson (6)
Steals- Andre Iguodala (5), Josh Smith (3)
Blocks- Marreese Speights (3), Al Horford (4)
As I was skimming through the box score, I noticed really quickly how well ATL jumped out ahead early. Up 31-17 at the end of the first, it was all downhill from there. Brand had an four buckets and went to the charity stripe three times to put Horford on the bench with foul trouble. At halftime Philly was ahead 51-42     making a very impressive defensive and offensive effort in the second quarter of play. Once the third set of twelve minutes rolled around, it was Jodie Meeks' turn. Jodie hit three threes while pulling down four boards to help push the Sixers to a 21 point lead going into the fourth... Although I didn't see any of the fourth quarter     given this was all simulation     the Hawks made a soaring comeback with Joe Johnson dropping 10 points to help bring them close to victory, but, no cigar. Evan Turner chipped in 7 points and two steals off the bench in the final block of regulation.
Due to time constraints I was only able to publish one game breakdown today... Sorry.
