NBA Playoffs 2011: Simulating Second-Round Series Using Crappy Video Games Of Old

With the Miami Heat locked in against the Boston Celtics, the second round of the 2011 NBA Playoffs is beginning to take shape. This means, of course, that it's time once again to drag out our technology-intensive methods and predict the winners.

A couple of weeks ago, we simulated the first round with help from largely awful video games from the 1990s, such as Barkley Shut Up And Jam! and Bill Laimbeer's Combat Basketball. Our set of simulators have produced mixed results; while they correctly predicted that the Heat and Thunder would advance, they completely whiffed on the Pacers and Knicks.

So far, then, this has been a coin flip. For the second round, we will continue to employ the use of old-timey video games; preferably, the worst we can find. Check back with this StoryStream, which we'll be updating throughout the next few days.
