Game 4: The Lando System at SEXY TRAIN
That's the single word best used to describe The Lando System in game four, as they used a scintillating offensive performance to tie the series and make it a best-of-three affair.
With Kevin McHale leading the way on 9-for-12 shooting, the Lando System shot 57% from the field. Larry Bird's Ten rebounds lead an effort that saw them win the battle on the glass 49-40. And, maybe just as important, the Lando System commited just 12 personal fouls on the night, largely keeping SEXY TRAIN off the free throw line, as they were limited to just 11 attempts - a quarter of what they got in their two wins.
McHale scored 20 points, and Bird had 21 points to go along with that rebound haul. Julius Erving scored 19 and added 8 assists, 7 rebounds, and 3 blocks, while Chris Paul scored 17 and dished out 6 assists.
SEXY TRAIN didn't have quite that much success, shooting just 41.6% from the field, including a woeful 3-for-9 effort from LeBron James, that included 0-for-3 from three-point land, though James did chip in 8 assists. David Robinson lead the way for SEXY TRAIN with 19 points, while Kawhi Leonard added 18 points and 7 rebounds and Tim Duncan added 11 points and 10 rebounds.
Plus, Anthony Bennet got in the game!
The series, now basically a best-of-three, returns to Boston for Game 5.
Final Score: The Lando System 114, SEXY TRAIN 85

Oh, that's where my team went.

Game 5: SEXY TRAIN at The Lando System
It's a game of inches, they say. And in game five, those inches belonged to the Lando System.
Until the final twelve seconds of this game, neither team had a fourth-quarter lead of larger than four points. Even then, the lead only stretched to five.
The game was tied at 110 with 2:03 to play, and stayed that way for the next 92 seconds of game time, as we saw a cruch-time stretch that saw SEXY TRAIN fail to score three times thanks to blocks from the Lando System, and the Lando System miss twice before Chris Paul converted an and-one to give them a 113-110 lead with 31 ticks left.
LeBron James missed a potential game-tying three fifteen seconds later, Julius Erving made both free throws, and the Lando System escaped with a hard-fought win.
Larry Bird was Mr. Everything all night for the Lando System, scoring 19 points, dishing out 11 assists, and grabbing 7 rebounds. Anthony Davis was a spark off the bench with 22 points and 10 rebounds in just 29 minutes of game play, and Kevin McHale added 14 points and 10 rebounds. As a team, the Lando System shot 53.1% from the field.
James paced SEXY TRAIN with 23 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds, and Tim Duncan, with 20 points and 11 rebounds, and David Robinson, with 19 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 blocks, provided inside muscle. But, SEXY TRAIN will rue their outside shooting, where they made just 3 of their 14 three-point attempts as sabotaging their chance to take game five.

Game 6: The Lando System at SEXY TRAIN
Taking a lead into the fourth quarter, it looked as if the Lando System might wrap this one up on the road.
But, Kawhi Leonard and SEXY TRAIN channeled their inner Lee Corso and said "not so fast my friend", completing a masterful fourth quarter and extending the series to a seventh game.
SEXY TRAIN outscored the Lando System 41-25 in the fourth quarter, on their way to 52.3% shooting for the game. Leonard did a bit of everything, scoring 25 points, grabbing 10 rebounds, dishing out 5 assists, notching four steals, and blocking two shots.
To go along with that, Tim Duncan and David Robinson absolutely owned the paint. Duncan scored 25 and grabbed 11 rebounds, while Robinson scored 20 and grabbed 11. That lead to SEXY TRAIN getting a 53-35 edge on the glass.
LeBron James added 21 points, 10 assists and 5 rebounds to give SEXY TRAIN a big four on the night.
The Lando Sytem shot well - 50.6% from the field, and 46.2% from three, but getting destroyed on the boards really dampened their chances of winning. Julius Erving lead the way with 21 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists, Larry Bird added 17 points, and Oscar Robertson and Anthony Davis scored 15 and 14 off the bench, respectively.
The result means both teams will have it all to play for in game seven.

So, that means a Game Seven! The best two-word phrase in simulated sports!
Luigi - any adjustements?
PRENNTACULAR - any adjustments?

Game 7: SEXY TRAIN at The Lando System
Your Finals MVP - Kawhi Leonard.
It was true in the NBA in 2014. And it's true in this simulated series, after Leonard delivered a game seven for the ages. 27 points. 10 rebounds. 7 assists. 5 steals. And 9-for-16 shooting, including a scorching hot 4-for-5 from downtown.
Leonard paced his team to 49% shooting, right in line with what the Lando System shot, at 49.4%. LeBron James added 21 points, and Tim Duncan added 14 points and 9 rebounds.
The game turned, for good it seems, midway through the second quarter. With 6:04 remaining, Kevin McHale converted an and-one to give his team a one-point lead. From that point, though, SEXY TRAIN ran off a 10-0 run to grab the lead, and never looked back. From that run forward, SEXY TRAIN never trailed, and the Lando System never got closer than five points down.
McHale lead the way for the Lando System with 24 points, Larry Bird added 16, and Chris Paul and Julius Erving each scored 14.
Final Score: SEXY TRAIN 119, The Lando System 101

SEXY TRAIN win the Series and The Title 4-3
BTW, I think my favorite thing about this draft is that the last bucket scored was a three-pointer from Anthony Bennett.
this was fun, thanks inty! have to confess i was pulling for prenn by the end, only because he seemed like a huge underdog after the draft.
Anthony Bennett: Championship Winner
DUDE I'M LIKE LEGIT HAPPY FOR YOU
