Video game simulation sees Warriors over Cavs for NBA title

NEW YORK (AP) A video game simulation of the NBA playoffs sees the Golden State Warriors beating the Cleveland Cavaliers, after getting by what would have been an exhausted San Antonio team.

The 2K Sports simulation Friday culminated with the Warriors topping the Cavaliers in six games, with Stephen Curry winning NBA Finals MVP after scoring 46 points in the clincher.

To get to the finals, the Warriors ousted the Spurs in seven games in the Western Conference finals. That was the third seven-game series for the defending champions, who went the distance to beat the Clippers and Houston Rockets in the previous two rounds.

The Cavaliers had a much easier time on their side of the bracket, dropping just one game each to Boston and Chicago before ousting top-seeded Atlanta in six games.
