Derrick Favors and Kyrie Irving are on the rise in NBA 2K18

Favors has gone from a 76 to an 80 after averaging 16.7 points and 8.6 rebounds per contest over his last nine games. to add further perspective, Favors’ shooting percentages have been skyrocketing. HoopsHype’s Bryan Kalbrosky offers some visual and statistical analysis:

Favors was seeing extended minutes while Rudy Gobert was out 11 games with an injury. Favors has played so well, Utah Jazz head coach Quin Snyder elected to keep him in the starting lineup even with Gobert returning. It’s great to see 2K paying so close attention to real statistics and trends as they adjust the player ratings appropriately.

The game’s cover athlete Kyrie Irving is also on the comeup. His rating has jumped from 90 to 93. Irving is having a strong year overall (averaging 23.5 points and five assists per game, but he’s been one of the league’s top fourth-quarter scorers.

In the final period, Irving is shooting 48 percent from the field and scoring about 7 points. He’s been clutch in Boston and his performance shines even brighter in light of the Gordon Hayward injury on opening night.
