NBCS Washington, Monumental Simulating Wizards, Caps Games
NBC Sports Washington will virtually complete the Wizards and Capitals regular seasons by showing one-hour video game simulations via Take-Two Interactive’s NBA 2K20 and EA Sports’ NHL 20. The simulations, which also will be streamed by Monumental Sports Network, start with a Wizards-Bucks game tomorrow at 7:00pm ET. The first Capitals game -- a simulation with the Blues -- will be carried on Tuesday at 7:00pm.
The simulations will use artificial intelligence and align with the teams’ remaining schedules of postponed regular-season games -- the same opponents on the same dates. The Wizards games will use NBA 2K20 video and audio, adding analysis from the RSN’s actual Wizards coverage. The Capitals games will include commentary from NBC Sports Washington’s Capitals announcers.
