Newest Trade Acquisition Proves Critical for Heat Check Gaming

May 15, 2019

Heat Check Gaming (4-2) dominated Cavs Legion GC (3-4) on Wednesday, winning 86-55 during Week 5 of the NBA 2k League.

The big story coming out of the trade deadline was Hood joining Heat Check Gaming. Hood proved that he was still on top of his game, taking over the point guard position and earning player of the match honors. Scoring 24 and picking up six assists, a steal and a rebound, Hood was an immediate presence for the Heat, enabling the rest of his team to succeed, with everyone on Heat Check scoring double-digit points. MaJes7ic put up a team-high 25 and five steals while playing with a broken leg in real life, Dropoff scored 15, Lotty put in 12, and Hotshot put up 10 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists in what was nearly a triple-double. Heat Check was consistent throughout the game, improving on defense throughout the first half and finding an offensive rhythm in the second. With the addition of Hood, there’s no telling what the limit is for this Heat Check lineup.

Cavs Legion GC had some things going for it, namely the new acquisition All Hail Trey from the Raptors. All Hail Trey put up 12 points in his debut, but had his night spoiled by committing seven turnovers. Turnovers were a big issue for Cavs Legion, coughing over 16 while only getting nine steals. It didn’t help that normal starting point guard LYKaPRO did not play due to illness, so the roster had to shuffle around, but the Cavs looked fairly lost throughout the game. Trailing Heat Check 34-26 at the end of the first half, Cavs Legion struggled mightily in the third, scoring only seven while letting the Heat score 25 and all but secure the win. Cavs Legion has talent on its roster, but a star-studded lineup that fails to stay in contention is certainly cause for alarm. The jury is still out on the Cavs, which will need to prove itself if it hopes to be taken seriously as a dark-horse playoff threat.
