Just from a quick look around at articles, the Miami Herald was the only outlet I found that mentioned any kind of methodology:

In scheduling the missing two games for the 22 teams that did not make the quarterfinals of the tournament, the NBA attempted to match up two teams from the same conference that were initially scheduled to face each other only three times instead of four.
So...I guess 2K could make sure their game logic prioritizes opponents from the same conference for creating those two games, but I can't say it's something that I'd ever notice or would bother me. It's never going to match the actual NBA so I'm fine with those two games being random opponents too.
