The current NBA season may be suspended with no clear return date in sight, but that doesn’t mean a champion can’t be crowned in the virtual world. With COVID-19 putting a stop to the 2019-20 NBA season on March 12, 2K Sports has taken over the mantle by simulating the rest of the games in NBA 2K20.
The regular season just wrapped up in-game (around the same time it would have if the season wasn’t suspended), so now the Playoffs have begun with 2K simulating the first round of games. Results for the second round will be released on May 1, before the third round results are revealed on May 8, and finally the NBA Finals on May 15.
Below are the final standings at the conclusion of NBA 2K20’s simulated season, showing the 16 teams who qualified for the Playoffs.
