NBA Rewind: Hot Shots / Cold Shots

On paper, the Lakers look like the hot shooting team, but the Suns took advantage of the charity stripe to take the win. That being the case, we've decided, for the first time, to add a losing player to the "Hot" list.

Which player made the most efficient use of his offensive touches to help his team win the game? Which player's misses cost his team a shot at victory? Let us know how we did. Did we choose the right guys? Who would you add or subtract?

Our simulation correctly called for the Suns to rise up and take Game 3, but now, NBA2K10 is picking the Lakers to bounce back in Game 4. Kobe Bryant goes for 32 points, while Pau Gasol chips in with 15 points and 11 rebounds. On the losing side, Steve Nash throws in a double-double of his own as Phoenix comes up just short.

Last night, our simulation correctly picked the Suns to bounce back against the Lakers. Tonight, however, NBA2K10 is predicting more of the same for the Magic. Orlando falls in another lopsided win by the Celtics. Boston shoots 72 percent from the field, with Paul Pierce's 19 points leading the team. In all, six Celtics players reach double figures as the team sweeps in to the NBA Finals.
