“Do you have such an absurd expectation?” ESPN Claims Boston 72% Chance to Win Series 0-3

Controversy is brewing over ESPN’s ‘absurd’ predictions.

ESPN used the BPI before the Eastern Conference finals series, and said that the Boston Celtics had a 97% chance of winning by beating the Miami Heat.

Miami fans were outraged by this.

Even after Miami won two games, ESPN said Boston had a 65% chance of winning.

On the 21st, after losing all three games, ESPN claimed that Boston had a 72% chance of winning the series.

There is no team in the history of NBA that went from 0-3 to 4-3 in the playoffs.

Still, when Boston wins, Miami fans are making even more absurd expressions.

ESPN uses the so-called Basketball Power Index (BPI) to determine a team’s future performance.

Critics point out that this calculation method is inaccurate because it uses point difference in the regular league.

The Boston Celtics’ average of 6.52 was the best in the NBA this season. On the other hand, Miami ranked 25th with -0.32. Based on this, ESPN is claiming that even though Miami leads Boston 3-0 in the Conference Finals, Boston still has a 72% chance of winning.

Boston finished the regular season with a 57-25 record, the second best in the Eastern Conference this season. Miami went 44-38.

Seeded eighth, Miami had to go through a play-in tournament to qualify for the playoffs. Miami, who managed to pull up, had a blast in the playoffs. In the first round, they defeated the No. 1 seed Milwaukee Bucks, which Giannis Antetokounmpo was holding on to, in 5 games. They also beat the 5th seed New York Knicks with 4 wins and 2 losses.스포츠토토

Boston beat Miami in the conference final series last season after a close game seven.

Meanwhile, ESPN said that there is a 5% chance that the Los Angeles Lakers, who are also trailing the Denver Nuggets with 0-3 in the Western Conference final series, will produce a double play.

It remains to be seen whether ESPN’s predictions will be successful.
