it's all about 'calibration' - they have some sensible factors programmed into the engine but are heavy handed in the 'calibration' (or relative weighting) of those factors and therefore **** all can happen and they'll just shrug

also they don't give two bat farts in a day time cyclone thunderstorm worth of a rat turd of **** about this game so...

I noticed in tonight's playoff game that the Mavs had 8 turnovers and the Spurs had 5. Does anyone know why WIS cranks up the turnovers?
Honestly, they really don't crank up the turnover's, at least not as much as most people here seem to think. according to this list, the average team turns it over about 15 times a game in the nba (look at around the fifteenth ranked team) http://www.teamrankings.com/nba/stat/turnovers-per-game

considering that it seems that sim league usually has maybe 20% more possessions, I'd expect somewhere in the ballpark range of about 18 turnover's per game if the turnover per possession rate remains similar.

now go look at teams in your simleagues and see how many turnover's they average. the amounts aren't unreasonable.

for the leagues i'm in, the median values are as follows:

17 turnover's per game
19 turnover's per game
18 turnover's per game
