hello and welcome everybody to episode number two of Bracket Busters.
I'm, you know, Sack Morgan here on the Golden Hour Sports Network.
And today we have a brand new episode and a brand new formats.
And last night I did a lot of prepping, and I decided to do stuff different today.
And you're going to see what is very different about today in the format.
And today we decided toe assim the best N b A teams For what? The twist this time, and it would have taken forever.
I mean, it did take me a solid hour two sim this and get prepped.
And but I have got something that I think will be cool today, and I am excited to start, and, uh and it kind of catch you up on this.
We've got to go all the way back all the way back to the group stage.
This is what I have created.
An n b a sim, all 32 un beauty, all 30 n b A. Teams.
They're divided into brackets, randomly, random seats.
And they play all the other teams.
Those five teams in the group, they play each other once and the top two teams advanced.
Kind of like the World Cup in my mind, and this is double elimination.
So this is going to be very just all over the wall all over the walls.
But I think it will be fun just for the purees.
Am I think it'll be fun and we'll see.
And I think that you don't know until you try.
So I hope that gentle enough explaining there and so basically and without the further do we might as well get you the image here and you'll go.
So in Group A, we had the Rockets, Clippers, Mavs, Pacers and pelicans and and just to see the match ups and it ended up being all Rockets.
Rockets didn't lose one, and they ended up going into the second round along with the L. A Clippers.
They did go to into this was a very stack division.
It isn't an example of stack divisions and and ever go, This will not ask that and you see the two clear better teams Advance wars did not have curry, so that kind of sucks.
Now this one And this one was stacked, eh? not.
This was the second most stack division in my view.
And the Sixers end up getting through.
And then this one, the Knicks and Nuggets go past Ah, surprising Knicks.
But a whatever, Um, pressure.
Do we have any own four teams? I don't believe we did.
Yes, we did. Action amounts are.
And this was the most stack division.
I only did felt feel bad.
You look even a bucks to to make it.
The jazz somehow made it.
Um, but the jazz were number two seed today.
Had better games at home.
I don't really did.
I wish the box would have made it would have been better, but I gave them chances, dude.
I gave them chances, and they just didn't take him.
Um, we got I never got the pistols and wrapped pistons and Raptors Amine Magic Joe Breakthrough.
I was a little bit of a surprise, and Dad basically brings you guys up to date and that hand let's get it underway here and just gonna show you the brackets.
So we got a truss nine.
You got the Trailblazers bulls got the Lakers Raptors and Then you got the Clippers, Nuggets and the Pistons and Jazz and the top four teams got to buy.
And that consists of the Rockets, T Wolves and Nixon and the Sixers and ah, losersbracket here.
Most of this is best of one of until around three and four specifies, loses around five is best of five.
And ah, now you have to win a seven game series twice coming up from the losers back, and I kind of screwed up the technicalities of that.
So I'm actually going to do something like, Yeah, I don't know.
That's so that was dumb.
I admit that and and I mean, say we go and lot less started I started.
I'm going to get those site N b A sim match up rights and, um eso I mean and I'm ready.
I hope you guys are.
We got the Trail Blazers and sons.
Trail Blazers are the better seed in my view and a hand in the bracket view, and I know you can see it.
So let's kind of assume that in for a second wall again.
I still can't see it.
Kanye, Uh there we go, and I will go.
Should be able to see it.
And then we're gonna get this set up Trailblazers.
Travelers is bulls.
That's so interesting.
Like bulls actually did make through and and there was a lot of surprises, and I'm not gonna lie.
I didn't see some of them coming, and, uh, eso without that further do.
That's enough of me saying and 15,000 times, Let's get to it, Hold up and it would get Ah, well, Game one came on Ghost Trailblazers Game one.
Well, that's a good start for the Blazers.
All right? 1 1901 11 Trailblazers over Bulls.
Game two is in Chicago Planet be over.
Will api over? We'll see.
1 18 1 or nine blazers.
The Bulls are eliminated Trailblazers and they're on now.
Lakers and Raptors Lakers are better seed.
And in this now, of course.
And it's not random.
Um, this based on the group stage one skin.
Ah, uh, yeah, I'll be referring to that a lot just to make sure you guys know Raptors air all the way down here, aren't they? And if I could properly it down, I owe Joe um, this is a good match of like in real life. Up.
All right, so we're just gonna do different for the Raptors.
When? 1 22 1918 But I screwed up the home it away, so I can't really go through the result.
You're watching Raptor. Just win.
And that's why I couldn't go through the results.
Lakers win Game one.
Game number two Who, Uh, let me know of your predictions in the comments right now.
The Lakers are through, I think I think.
And the Raptors did get tough.
Draw me in 5 12 and the Lakers by a number five.
You got to remember the Lakers were in a really tough division.
Um, I know I'll say that a lot, but I can't stress it enough.
There's the number one team.
Ah, the Clippers are number one, man.
Uh oh. Here we go.
Holy ****! Holy shoot! Sorry, I'm 392 Nuggets.
We haven't take chicken nuggets.
If they win this, I'll literally Oh, my goodness, they really outscored the Clippers in the fourth quarter.
When I come back, Um, I gonna say and the Nuggets win.
Um, actually, I can't go through that because they weren't home.
And I know it's all technical like, Why don't you just, like like, that's wide? That's why I can't go through with it, because it wasn't really technically, like fair.
And I would go Game numbers. Seven.
Wolf Game number three.
I'm sorry, our 1st 3 game er of the Siri's of the of so far, and it ends up going the Nuggets way.
Um ir Joe the Nuggets win and Iran! Hi.
The final matchup of round one Pistons Jazz.
Huh? Uh, Pistons were looking for the Pistons. Pistons.
There's a better seed.
The Pistons are the better See today are there for the home team.
Game one in Detroit's and Detroit wins 103 to 74.
A complete domination Detroit is toward has not lost a game so far.
Cheese, Uh, maybe some good better look at home for the Jazz in game number two.
We'll see 20 and 46 Detroit Pistons, Maybe the Jazz over having chemistry problems.
Maybe I am a non educated basketball fan because this is shocking.
Uh, so we got Ah, uh Ah.
So what, we're gonna dio uh, no, no might have figured out. Sorry.
We got the Rockets and Blazers now, which I'm actually not going to start yet.
I'm going to start the Knicks and Pistons because I can, actually, cause it's quicker follow.
You have the pistons up here? Uh huh.
It's my quad question here.
Question here is that Ah, so I don't know if it does, it's still really based on the seats.
Her might mixing.
I think I'm mixing up the team. Sorry.
Now they some pretty sure.
Oh, no, I think I think the Pistons.
I thought the pay I thought the Pistons went for No, you know what for? Know why they're one to bear seed.
But I guess that's the way life goes.
Oh, no, Hold up.
I think the tiebreaker was end.
Uh, ended up number one was that well, Syria's here so that Christians must have had one.
No, so that and are being making them better.
See? Well, that's art is so confusing.
Ah, you had to know that the rockets are a number one seed.
Which gonna mark all these is in progress or not to do that all, like Round two's and Progress.
Do you mean it's fax? As ever go, We're ready.
Ah, for game number one.
***ually in Madison Square Garden.
Will the match cold pistons run? Come to an end, but you won't come to an answer.
141 100 technical.
You won't go go to an endless They your in the liver, sprocket.
And we had to like, Yeah, there's some suspense right there and now they go back to the I'm I am so shocked on, dude, Andre Drummond is actually going off one way to 10 for you kidding? What is the ridiculous, huh? I know it's avenue and I'm so confused, huh, Hood? All right.
The sixties were playing the skin Lakers.

Frickin Lakers Timberwolves better seed.
Um well, the dang Shane Nuggets one upped up.
Then you cook a Mitch the layer where a lot I ugo Ah, game number one, Go sit in nuggets one or 7 to 75 I Here we go.
Game number two was actually, it is in Denver.
Nuggets take game two and they take the Siris on riel.
I can't believe that.
Are you serious or your She is in May.
I'm wearing my new catchphrase, Are you? She's a This is ridiculous.
Ah, if you believe this now, the six years do have a court here against the Lakers.
I believe that the six or not going to take gonna take a game here that this Sim engine hates the Sixers.
I'm gonna They ate really teams.
In fairness, we're gonna figure that out for search and butts, huh? Ah, I'm fairly so today.
I mean, we beat the Lakers like I told you.
They ate this six years.
We just lost one. A one 79.
She's a t was not that bad road. Come.
The six years we're gonna gonna get dropped it about bounce, it'll losers bracket.
How about that? She's Yup.
Ah, 1 14 107 Jiminy Crickets.
That and hotch, I got the rockets and blazers.
Now that's gonna be interesting.
Now, now, Actually, now, it's been a tough year for Portland, but we're saw into the beginning.
Here is beginning of the year.
Sort of the beginning of the year on when they last updated these.
Then if it was the beginning of the year, Curry would be in your 1 29 92 The Rockets murder the Blazers.
I thought that Sorry.
Huh? Huh? Um, don, I want to keep up botch I am a go game number two The Trailblazers will be knocked out because they lose 1 23 2117 at home Because you don't have that Damian Lillard luck anymore.
What can I say? Gay gave number aims no more, No more Shogo.
Now run into the loser Losersbracket Losersbracket.
We're gonna finish up here.
I'm gonna finish Get the cat dippers losersbracket out the way.
So that would be Ah, First be trail Blazers and jazz.
Why do the Sixers given again? Screwed over.
That's that's got it off.
Really? I got to go up against Bo.
Teens in l a game number one goes to the Blazers 1 25 to 19 mud.
And so I want 29 to 1 25 And that means that the Jazz are eliminated.
The Jazz irf are eliminated.
That's kind of sit.
That's sip for Are you kidding? I don't feel confident now.
Is that bad? Is that really bad or once? Tom, don't feel confident, Confident sixers? Yeah, pal, And are confident on some Not a confident six or so.
That's very big difference.
Here we go. It's gonna figure it out soon.
Um, there's no, No, like a suspense or build up.
Well, a six year survivor, we screwed over by the same engine again.
I'm pretty sure we're gonna get screwed over about a steam engine for every loss.
But ah, that's that's their world Bill up lips? Nope, Nope, Nope, nope, nope. Nope.
And the Sixers win the race and Ivory did.
That was because the Sixers world, the home team I screwed it up and ah yeah, that's fax.
I'm not joking around here.
It's actually truth 1 25 1 13 to 6 or survived by the skin of their teeth.
And now we got the timber roles and raptors now Timberwolf started better seed eight lost certain loss of groceries, and it's it's It's not just not been going well for them so and the Wizards could get back in the win column or they could get eliminated here.
That's the Wizards, the Timberwolves Temporal.
Sorry, I'm not Ah, I don't know how to us remember anything, apparently.
But they will have a very tough challenge in the minister in the Toronto Raptors.
Let's see what happens here.
Of course it is starting lineup.
So let's get right to it.
No insists our butts and the Timberwolves are not out.
My goodness! 1 18 01 16 your final score and the Raptors A My Guinness Rogers Move on barely.
And they are not out of the tournament just yet.
I goodness, but the body usually would be the bottom of the cellar.
And I mean, this is the losersbracket.
So putting about your bottom of cell.
You got the Knicks in the Bulls in the next year home, so we'll set that up and get that underway.
How's everybody doing today in the Chet? Hopefully, everybody's having a splendid day. Splendid.
Um, question of the day.
A lot of snow when you're out of school.
And I can tell you I'm very excited for that.
The next one over the Bulls and the Bulls are eliminated.
So the Bulls were runner up to the Sixers division.
Uh, next survive, and they live to see another day.
RJ Baron must be carrying her, isn't it? Oh, uh, now it's Marcus Morris.
Oh! Ah! Ah! Marcus Morris had 28 points right there, bro.

And now get off.
I'm going to get the, um I'm gonna get the bracket up here, dude.
And this is the bracket right now and that's it.
And then we got this year and we'll see what happens And eso so the Knicks are going to be and the next actually were the home team and that they're made them the way.
But I feel like that helps.
Ah, I'm not I'm not gonna change because it's too much of the pain If I notice it before and anime, I mean, they want so right? Yeah, we're not doing that.
And it would go game number one of one and one or 6 81 Raptors win and I show you that.
Let's not make a blind for you, dude.
One of 6 81 the Raptors beat the Knicks.
The next Cinderella run ends in disappointing fashion at home, and you probably have the booze for James Dolan.
Camp Lima ever goes.
We got the sixes and rat and Trailblazers Wonder moves on and the loser is eliminated.
And so six shows and I'm trying to get up to speed with, Like with the winner's bracket here.
They were going to set the ways at the home, and we're going to do it in 321 for con it.
Our game winner last time.
What kind of six is pulled off here? They went by four.
Yeah, I want it back.
Get us back in to the winner's bracket.
We're not in it, but and that's a problem with losing in the first round.
You really like 1 11? One or seven.

Uh ah! Faraj mutt! And now we're back up to the winners.
Rockets, Lakers and the Rockets are the better seed.

Uh, I mean, you say that all time with I, like, permit.

It didn't save AJ.
First game was 11 95 Lakers I 11 95 first game and then No, I don't want it to be negative.

Send them through all they will.
What? A win by the Houston Rockets.
And on with a 109 of one on one victory in Game four they wanted.
And four, They went to high score Woods, Hold.
I want to see that.
What really the case? Wow, that's not said.
Do I unlocked the best five and it doesn't like nuts.
It's high score now, not high score wins and they will go.
And that's the very well to T semi finals, which will be a best of seven.
But now let's get your other best of five.
The Denver Nuggets and the Detroit Pistons of Detroit Pistons have not lost our game just yet.
A. My goodness, this is fun.
Then go Nugget Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons.
So like Alan Markman.
No, no, I so like Alan Smith.
Yeah, yeah and ah, faithful on that's live and let's check it out.
That's Ruse, that shoes catchphrase, the next shoe pack.
I don't alway already said your neighbor, you know, Kudos to you.
Game number one. I do believe the Pistons are the better siege.
And a piston job.
Now Los a game 1 26 You see, I'm not vertiginous.
I'm not like I'm dead serious right now.
Game number two is eyes still in Detroit.
The persons have not lost hit.
I'm actually kind of shocked.
Was one of 7 to 10 nine.
Final score in Nuggets and Pistons.
So the Nuggets need to win.
The Nuggets need to win right now.
Or else this game in this series is over.
Check it out. Here we go.
Finally! Thank you, Jesus.
I was getting really concern.
Like like I'm not even kidding.
Like you think of kidding.
I was getting really concerned that this is like, you know, not the the greatest, like, you know, one of one of 90 five, because I'm really concerned.
A My goodness, Finally they lost like game number four round cared.
I just I'm happy the Pistons lost.
Make it a little more and the pistons win one 23.
Teoh warned 16 and the Nuggets are not done yet, but is not a good not Not great.
So the Nuggets will live another day.
And what did I dio? Uh, whoops. Sorry.
The Nuggets will live another day, by the way, but it's just, you know, in the losersbracket.
All my goodness.
Oh, my Nuggets airplane to six is the Lakers airplane, Raptors and Nuggets.
I'm just going to do this one because it's Yeah, because it's closer.
So and then we got the Sixers.
Let's check it out.
Ah, yeah, That's that's how it is, Right? I would go.
Is so be a best of three.
Here it goes aimed.
Only one goes such a go.
Let's go, Hodge.
One on 7 to 98 the Sixers win.
And now they are going to go on to vote.
Try to clinch abroad.
They also love one more home game given this scenario and they go on the road to Denver and take it by two.
And they're on, They're on baby too.
The losersbracket finals.
Um I guess that's huge.
Lakers wrapped his baby.
Oh, boy, that's awesome! Fudge! This is all MBA Sim and I I really And enjoying this I think this has been fun.
Now the Raptors are the better seed.
No, they're not.
The Lakers other batters. Better seat.
So that's gonna be really interesting.
Um, and reliability do you think Stay Guinness.
I think the Lakers were taken in five.
Yeah, I got the Lakers and five and free life this ever happened.
And game one is one by the Lakers are men.
Ah, uh I don't think they let him get any further than two in this.
Maybe, I don't know.
The Lakers have to go on the road to a hostile environment in Toronto.
That is not easy.
I will tell you that much.
Game number two and the Raptors survive on the home court, one 12 to 104 Game number three and it's live.
It's in the it's in our Los Angeles.
We're gonna similarly game play by play and the Raptors win.
Wait, this might, I might have screwed it up.
No way to let know that that that's That's why that's 91 to 82.
The Raptors just beat the Lakers away and don't say you know what.
And don't say the Lakers didn't deny other chances and the Raptors will go on to play six years.
And what last? Just get the losersbracket out the way.
I just got out the way Raptors Sixers in a five game serious Ah, when it takes all Oh my goodness.
Ah, a baby and it's going to be the first game will be home for the Sixers, so 1st 2 will be home right? This is not a five games years yet I'm already forgetting my own rules that I'm age and now is the best of three. Sorry.
And there we go.
This should be interesting.
Game number one.
Come on, Sixers.
They wanted 103 86.
I do believe the six or the better team.
I think they're just gonna freak out whenever they play the Raptors.
If I do believe they were the better team and I do believe this six is if they do get their players back and they dio, uh, like, calm down, this is really beneficial.
The time it's time for two sixes and the six is wrong.
Nope, they're not their mind.
They're on their own.
It was on the roadside and, uh, and onto the losersbracket finals.
Well, either play the Rockets are the Pistons.
At this point, I'd rather play the Rockets because of pistons.
Have not lost like they've only lost one game.
Like honestly were like, That's so ridiculous.
Now the Rockets are home team, and here's is where I think this and I think this run of of of just school have glory for the Pistons will come to an end.
There's no way, uh, you know, Roger, I don't think they're gonna be I Very now, I I odio game kimono numero uno and of rockets.
Take it 1 22 to 85.
And is this where ah, the run of glory for the Pistons comes to an end? We'll see, But it has a lot to come back and they will have to come back foreign and game number two, and they can't.
So 1 27 toe 1 10 And this has not been closer for burlesque.
Oh, let's go back to, uh, let's go back to a little Caesars Arena.
I see what happens.
Game number three.
And this is a huge one, mind you.
And the Pistons are bad.
They ain't going down without a fight.
One of 5 89 The final score here.
And it's one off, right? I know. Yeah. Merge.
Right? So it's 2 to 1 to one Siri's and it's back.
It's live in Detroit again, and you gotta be kidding me.
The Rockets went 1 14 to 79.
Yeah, I gave number five.
Well, the Cinderella of Run off the Detroit Presents Undergrads winning.
Ah, they're gonna have to one in Houston.
That's proved almost impossible for them.
And they can't do it.
So I'm kind of happy.
Khanna said the Cinderella of run for the Pistons and it comes to an end.
That's okay, though.
It doesn't got Sorry.
Sorry Doesn't get to an end.
The it comes to a screeching halt.
I'm going to tell you how much.
Ah, but ah, but I do think I do.
Do you think that's how would go? I Do You think that's how it goes in real life? No, We got a best of five.
There goes the Pistons and six years, Huh? Uh, got the Sixers and Pistons.
The Sixers are the home team.
Pistons or not? Ah, man, I'm nervous is a huge game here.
And game number one and and it's in Philadelphia.
So they have had a tough time winning on the road special in Houston.
I think the six of a better home court and it shows as a one game one nineties 1 13 to 97.
This is only best of five.
So this game John does draws ride a lot a lot.
Those right on this one and the Sixers win one away to one of six.
Amend off Cinderella run off the before Pistons is about to come to an AM in a beaker.
Lakers didn't day.
I didn't know knows, but I don't even know.
1 11 2 92 the six or sweep as they should.
She's I said the sixties or back in the finals.
No, now yet in the finals against the Rockets, So it's of rockets and sixes.
I probably should give you, Ah, give you our pick of the brackets and I will Oh my goodness.
So this so far and I'm just going to show you and it's so it's been like this.
The last time I showed you last time I showed you this was the updates and sisters did end up losing to the Lakers by those scores.
And then and then they do get dropped down here and you see the Lakers are eliminated by the Raptors.
You can pause at any moment.
Six O's did bounce back beating the Clippers, So if you're wondering where the Clippers went, that is where they you know. That's where they go.
That's where they were.
And then the Raptors and six.
Woodward competes while a ****ant Cinderella run lived on.
And they did end up in in the next and they beat the Nuggets and they ran into their riel first.
Not, and the Nuggets were really not.
I mean, that the Nuggets were test, but it and it was their first shock.
And and in the Pistons end up beating them and they take a turn for the worst and they lucida Sixers and they lose in three.
It was not even close.
Let's go to the finals six.
Remember, the Sixers have to beat the Rockets in a seven game series twice.
Ah, man, Yes, you're right Twice.
And the Rockets on Lee need to beat the six years on Lee once.
So the sisters are not going to be on for.
And the Sixes will not have home advantage for any of these Siri's.
They will always be Ah, one odd game short of ah, of home games and they lose game 11 22 99.
And game number two Oh, my goodness.
I kind of socks came number two.
The Rockets need a big one year, but not as much as the Sixes.
And the Sixers are hungry, baby, and they win it 1 33 to 1 swell.
The Siri's Swit shifts back to Philadelphia.
Oh, my goodness.
Read the greatest upset in the history of sports and they lose game number 31 20.
Weight 1 28th 1 away, which is okay, They need to win.
And that, and they just can't lose their home.
Court advantage, for the most part, is really what it comes down to.
And they do just that, Tom.
And this could do it.
You guys will not know the final score, and I will not know the final score.
Game number five, and it's in.
Uh, here, Stian.
So it's now going to show us if the Rockets are on and they are champions off the sim? Yes, they are in the Rockets.
The strength and off the strength off the 30 point performance from Russell Westbrook Hodge and 1 22 to 108 The final score.
And that will do it for the N B A. Sim.
Wow! How is Agrabah stimulation You're Go the champions, the Houston Rockets and we will show you that screen.
Ah, and they would go there It is.
And they beat him for the one in the finals and jeez! Ah, heck off a day egg of a game Siri's.
And you see that results here.
And so we see the fours Olds got the Rockets and the sixes.
So we did have some worthy follow ups and we had the Rockets window for when it's then you had the Sixers runner up, You got the Pistons third place.
