The Los Angeles Clippers and Boston Celtics meet Friday afternoon in a NBA2K simulation game. 

The Los Angeles Clippers have an overall rating of 84, an inside scoring rating of 77 and an outside scoring rating of 82. The Clippers are led by one of the best 1-2 punches in the league in Kawhi Leonard, who has a 96 overall rating and 81 three point shot, and Paul George who has a 90 overall rating and 83 rated three point shot. Montrezl Harrell is a nice third option with his 85 overall rating and his relentlessness on the glass. Lou Williams and Marcus Morris Sr provide the depth, as both players are rated 80 overall or better. The Clippers also have impressive outside shooting in Reggie Jackson, Patrick Patterson and Landry Shamet, players who all have highly rated outside shots. The Los Angeles Clippers simply don’t have a strong area of weakness in this game and are arguably the most complete team in this version of the game.

The Boston Celtics have an overall rating of 82, an outside scoring rating of 86 and a 81 athleticism rating. The Celtics are led by an impressive trio of Jayson Tatum, Kemba Walker and Jalen Brown, who are rated 85 overall or better. What’s even better is Gordon Hayward, Marcus Smart, Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter are all rated 80 overall or better. If you’re not paying attention, the Celtics have seven different players rated at least 80 overall, making them one of the deepest teams in this game. Brad Wanamaker has an 80 rated three point shot and Robert Williams has an 80 driving dunk rating that allows him to create damage in the paint. The Boston Celtics are super talented and super deep, and they’re one of the few teams in this game that doesn’t have a clear weakness.

These are two of the better teams in the game, so you can make a strong case for either side and the free bucket with the Celtics is intriguing. However, the Los Angeles Clippers are the deeper team in this game and elite on the defensive side of the ball. The Clippers also have the ability to be even better offensively when their bench comes in, which isn't something you see often in this game.

I'll lay the bucket with the Clippers.
