|Celtics Crossover Gaming||18||21||32||16||87|
Celtics Crossover Gaming (4-4) defeated Grizz Gaming (2-5) with a strong 87-73 victory. This game was one of MEL East’s best scoring performances for Celtics Crossover Gaming, as the power forward went 13-of-15 from the field for 31 points.
His presence in the paint was unmatched by his assignment DDouble2K, who allowed him to ball out and failed to come close to his scoring numbers. Meanwhile, his fellow big ARS0NAL X, who before this game was top-five in the league in scoring, had an uncharacteristic day from the field, only hitting 2-of-5 attempts for 5 points in the first half.
Still, the Salisbury native was not needed for his services in this victory. After Grizz Gaming kept the game within seven points at the half, Boston rolled out to score more than 30 points in the third quarter to bury their opponents.
This victory should be a confidence boost to Celtics Crossover Gaming, who will have to face Blazer5 Gaming, a team that could still be undefeated if they can beat Warriors Gaming Squad in Week 7.
As for Grizz Gaming, this loss continues a rough stretch in their inaugural season. Their only two wins in the league are against Warriors Gaming Squad and Pacers Gaming, who also occupy the bottom of the 2K League standings. They do have a match next week against Knicks Gaming, who lost by a single point to Heat Check Gaming an hour prior to this game’s tipoff, which could be the opportunity they need to turn around their regular season.
