Blazer5 Gaming routed Knicks Gaming 95-73 in front of the New York home crowd, punching their ticket to THE TURN finals in dominate fashion. Blazer5 broke the single game scoring record in the NBA 2K League, shooting 40-of-62 from the field to go along with 6-of-12 shooting from beyond the arc.
Mama Im Dat Man facilitated this historic game, posting 33 points and 18 assists in the blowout win. Fellow Big 3 member Dat Boy Shotz led all scorers with 36 points while also reaching the double-double mark with 10 rebounds.
Their efforts are even more impressive considering that GRANT MONSTER did not score a single point in this game. One factor that helped Blazer5 come close to the league’s first 100-point game was moving Lavish-phenom to a pure sharpshooter role. He made 4-of-6 three-point attempts during this game, contributing to this red-hot offense as a spot-up shooter.
While Knicks Gaming shot over 50 percent from the field and all but YEYNotGaming scored in double digits, they simply could not keep up with Blazer5 Gaming and their own bevy of offensive options. Their 14 turnovers are partially to blame for their loss, as well as an inability to stop the Blazer5 scoring machine on defense.
Blazer5 will now await the winner of the Celtics Crossover Gaming and 76ers Gaming Club matchup in THE TURN finals to close out Saturday’s slate.
