ChatGPT is the newest kid on the internet block. The artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot is language-based, but we decided to put its numbers skills to the test in the NBA playoffs. Although ChatGPT denies that it can predict the future, we chose to overlook this disclaimer and asked it to predict the outcome of the Denver Nuggets and Phoenix Suns Western Conference semi-finals. In this article, we will explore what ChatGPT predicts will happen in the remainder of the Nuggets and Suns playoff series.
ChatGPT can be as helpful as you want it to be. However, just asking it to predict the rest of the NBA playoffs series between the Suns and Nuggets will likely not yield great results.
Instead, we supplied ChatGPT with the statistics of the previous games in the series. Then, we asked it to produce a review of the remainder of the games in the series. We told it to include the result, a game summary, key points, notable player stats, and to make it feel at home as a language-based model, a post-series press conference.
Here are the some of the highlights from ChatGPT’s Suns/Nuggets playoff series:
- Nuggets win Game 6, no need to clinch in front of home fans in Colorado
- Jokic with a 32-point double-double
- Kevin Durant shoots just 7-of-23 in must-win game
Before delving into the riveting details of the series, here’s everything you need to know for Game 6, where the Denver Nuggets head to Phoenix to take on the Suns:
