Mark Medina, our friend over at the LA Times Lakers blog, did a simulation of the Lakers and Hornets series prior to Game 1.
He published the story on Saturday, the video games simulation had the Lakers losing Sunday’s game one to the Hornets.
The simulation also had the Lakers losing 109-100, the exact score of game one.
Laker fans will find some relief, that in the simulation the Lakers win the next four games, finishing off the Hornets in five.
“NBA 2K11 is an intelligent game, it reflects season trends, and has updated rosters. Gasol didn’t have a good game in the simulation, and the Lakers couldn’t guard Chris Paul.” Said Medina
For those that are wondering the outcome of Wednesday’s Game 2, the Lakers are projected to win 109-100.
