Who doesn’t like playing for a chance to win more $$?!
Starting this week through July 10, the NBA 2K League is rolling out 23 regular-season matches that will have cash prize implications. That’s right, the winning team in each of these matches will walk away with an extra $2.5K!
The purpose of introducing the cash matches is to add some more excitement to the regular season and to provide more opportunities for teams to win prizing. Here’s some additional information about these matches:
- Each team will play one home match and one away match that have prize implications (e.g., a team may play three matches in this two-week span, but only two will count toward these cash matches)
- Each match will be worth $2.5K
- The team with the highest PPG in the two applicable matches across the two weeks will receive an additional $2.5K
- Total prizing distributed over the next two weeks will be $60K
The total 2020 season prize pool remains $1.4 million. The breakdown of the Playoffs and Finals prize pool will be announced at a later date.
Just a reminder, we’ll be back on ESPN2 on 6/30, 7/1, and 7/2 . The Game of the Week on 7/2 at 10 p.m. ET will now be the Gen.G Tigers of Shanghai vs undefeated Raptors Uprising GC.
