Dat Boy Dimez and oFAB finally have a rivalry.
Celtics Crossover Gaming earned their first win over Mavs Gaming this season, kicking Dallas out of THE TURN with a 77-59 victory. Previously, the Celtics lost to the Mavs in THE TIPOFF and during the regular season.
The No. 1 and 2 draft picks both went with the sharpshooting playmaker archetype for this game, but each put their own flair on the archetype in this outing. In the first quarter, Dat Boy Dimez got his revenge on oFAB for how he shut him down in their last meeting, not allowing him to score a single bucket and forcing him to play through his teammates.
Although he was struggling to shoot, oFAB decided to focus on feeding his teammates and racked up assists, ending the first half with 13 dimes. His selfless play helped Celtics Crossover Gaming eventually close the deficit with an 11-4 run midway through the second quarter, giving the C’s a 35-29 advantage at the half.
Continuing the onslaught at the beginning of the second half, the Celtics blew Dallas out of the water with a 23-6 quarter that completely put the game out of reach. Dallas could not prevent ARS0NAL x from staking claim to the paint, as he outrebounded their entire roster with 13 rebounds through 18 minutes before ending with 15 boards and 22 points.
The Celtics maestro himself, oFAB, wholly won the point guard duel, putting up 21 assists in comparison to a meager eight from Dimez.
Celtics Crossover Gaming will face Boston’s real-life rival in the Philadelphia 76ers Gaming Club later on Saturday, with the winner of that game advancing to THE TURN finals.
