Lol just some tips when simming on WIF from my experience:

1) Make sure you check/edit depth-charts before you sim.

2) I've noticed when you are logged into a WIF account the results are more stable and accurate than when you aren't. Its kind of weird, but for someone who has done both plenty of times, you will see a difference.

This is the biggest one. Some of their depth-charts/rotations are really messed up.

Yeah, the rebounds and assists seem kind of high, but it's not too far-fetched to think he could do that in a playoff series. I may track the stats for the stars on each team (best 1-3 players). Not going to do every player on every team. Tried doing that for a 16 team tournament and got burned out before I could even get down with the 1st round. But tracking the stats for just a few players doesn't take long.

That would be great!

Yeah burning out is a concern for even me. I started pretty strong with the previews/recaps, but not sure if I can continue that lol

Curious boredom while looking through the box scores.

Gasol WIS: 18.5 PPG, 8.6 RPG, 6.6 APG, 1.8 BPG .444 FG%
Gasol's actual averages: 20.4 PPG, 8.9 RPG, 4.6 APG, 1.9 BPG, .503 FG%

Solid. Major drop in FG% = Less PPG. Gasol would look to pass more in that situation in real life and his APG was up in the WIS series. Rebounding and blocks roughly the same. I actually think his rebounding would go up in that situation to maybe 11-12, but whatever.

2 2004 Detroit Pistons



vs.




15 2005 Denver Nuggets


Preview: The 2004 Detroit Pistons went 54-28 and stunned the world defeating the Lakers for the championship. They really improved as a team once they acquired Rasheed Wallace. The Pistons were a very dominant defensive team, arguably the best defensive team in this tournament. Anyone facing this team knows it will not be an easy series.

The 2005 Nuggets went 49-33 and were led by Carmelo Anthony. He was just 20 at the time, but he had already turned around the Nuggets franchise leading them to the playoffs in his 2nd year. Aside from Carmelo this team had other good players like Camby, K-Mart and Andre Miller. Overall a good tough team which will not go down easy.

The obvious question is how well will the Nuggets offense do against the Pistons defense. The Pistons will have Prince guard Melo the entire series and hope to contain him. The Nuggets have Camby and K-Mart protecting their rims which should make things tougher for the Pistons offense. I think it will come down to how well the Pistons stop Carmelo, if Melo has a big series, Nuggets can upset.

Game 1: at Pistons 97, Nuggets 80

Box Score: http://whatifsports.com/nba/boxscore...u=1&teamfee=-1

Player of the Game: R.Hamilton 27pts/5stl on 8/15 FG

Recap: The Pistons defense plays extremely well as they take Game 1 from the Nuggets. The Nuggets were held to just 32% shooting as they scored just 80pts. Melo especially struggled going 4/16 while the Pistons had a balanced effort on offense.




Game 2: at Pistons 96, Nuggets 73


Box Score: http://whatifsports.com/nba/boxscore...u=1&teamfee=-1

Player of the Game: B.Wallace 11pts/18reb/4stl/4blk

Recap: The Pistons dominate Game 2 as well shutting down the Nuggets again. The Nuggets had just 29pts in the 1st half as the Pistons won this game in true Piston defense fashion holding the Nuggets to just 33% shooting again.


Game 3: Pistons 103, at Nuggets 93



Box Score: http://whatifsports.com/nba/boxscore...u=1&teamfee=-1

Player of the Game: C.Billups 24pts/7ast on 8/16 FG

Recap: It was a must-win game for the Nuggets and they came and played hard in the 1st half leading 41-35 at half time. But in the 2nd half they allowed 68pts to the Pistons, and when you allow the Pistons to score 68 in a half, you are not winning. Melo continues to struggle, while Billups had another big game putting the Pistons ahead 3-0 in the series.

Game 4: at Nuggets 101, Pistons 97

Box Score: http://whatifsports.com/nba/boxscore...u=1&teamfee=-1

Player of the Game: K.Martin 17pts/8reb on 6/10 FG

Recap: [/b] The Nuggets avoid sweep and keep the series alive. They did it through their defense allowing the Pistons to shoot just 37%, they gave up 15 points in the last 2 minutes after the game was over but otherwise played hard all game. On offense it was a team effort fueled by a 58pt 2nd half to get the win.


Game 5: Nuggets 101, at Pistons 92

Box Score: http://whatifsports.com/nba/boxscore...u=1&teamfee=-1

Player of the Game: C.Anthony 31pts/8reb on 10/17 FG

Recap: The Nuggets finally got a big game from Carmelo to win at the Palace of Auburn Hills. They needed Anthony to step up tonight and he finally did. They once again played very well in the 2nd half scoring 57pts, this is the 2nd game in a row the Pistons defense fell apart in the 2nd half.


Game 6: Pistons 95, at Nuggets 86

Box Score:http://whatifsports.com/nba/boxscore...u=1&teamfee=-1


Player of the Game: B.Wallace 11pts/21reb/5blk



Recap:
The Pistons wrap up the series in 6. They came out strong in the 1st half holding a 56-41 lead at halftime, and finishing the game off with their strong defense throughout anchored by Ben Wallace. They were able to shut down Carmelo again and move onto the 2nd round of the playoffs.





2004 Pistons Win 4-2
