NBA 2K17 Predicts Epic NBA Finals And Winner

The Warriors will get revenge on the Cavs, according to NBA 2K17.

12 Comments

The NBA Finals begin this week with the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors going head to head for the third year in a row to compete for the championship.

2K Sports today released the results of its annual NBA Finals simulation using NBA 2K17, and it's the Warriors who come out on top this year, defeating the Cavs in a thrilling seven-game series.

You can see a full breakdown of the simulated series here on Facebook.

But if you want to know how it ends, it comes down to Game 7 with Kevin Durant scoring a game-high 41 points to help seal the Warriors' 132-106 victory and the title.

Back in October 2016, at the start of the current NBA season, 2K predicted that the Cavs and Warriors would reach the Finals, with the Cavs winning the Finals in seven games. The prediction has now changed, however, as the company believes the Warriors will win.

In the real world, the Cavs completed an epic comeback last year to stun the Warriors and claim the NBA Finals title. It was a crushing defeat for the Warriors, who led 3-1 before the Cavs won three games in a row to claim the championship.

Game 1 of the NBA Finals tips off tomorrow night. Who do you think will win the NBA Finals this year? Let us know in the comments below!

If the rainbow warriors can't get it done with Kevin Durant, they should just fold the team. Still, LeBron James is the best player in the world.

I think 90% of the predictions at the start of the season had Cavs and Warriors in the finals. It was probably 98% when the playoffs started.

Both teams have good rest. Both teams have 3 point shooters, and both teams could score. This series is going to come down to who wants to play defense.

Hi, just thought I'd tell you that it's the third year in a row these teams are meeting in the NBA Finals, not the second. While many teams have made it three consecutive years to their respective Championship game, it is extremely uncommon for the same two teams to achieve this feat.
