Blazer5 Gaming continued their early season undefeated run with a 87-64 win over Heat Check Gaming on Friday to open Week 5 in the NBA 2K League.
While Heat Check Gaming (2-3) certainly had the odds stacked against them in this series, few could have expected Blazer5 (5-0) to have such an impressive second half explosion. Coming out the gate, Miami Gaming kept things somewhat close as the deficit was just eight points at the half. The Heat Check Gaming were shooting just under 50 percent from the field while managing to keep Blazer5 at an even 50 percent shooting to boot. In that first half, though, Mama Im Dat Man put up 12 points and six assists while planting the seeds that would later sprout and put Heat Check Gaming away for good.
Once the second half got underway, however, there was simply no stopping Blazer5. The team shot 5-of-8 from beyond the arc in that second half while outscoring the Heat 52-37. They did it with a blistering offense that kept the attack coming from every angle. Four members of the team (Mama Im Dat Man, Lavish_phenom, Dat Boy Shotz, and OneWildWalnut) scored in double figures while putting up 81 of the team’s 87 points. Mama Im Dat Man led all scorers with 25 points and 17 assists by the time it was all said and done.
With the win, Blazer5 Gaming improves to 5-0 in the regular season and is 14-1 overall including both THE TIPOFF and THE TURN, with their only loss came in the finals of THE TIPOFF. There seems to be no stopping Blazer5 at this point as they storm through their opposition time and again.
