THE TIPOFF Powered by AT&T – Matchup Predictions #2

Heat Check Gaming vs Hornets Venom GT

Heat Check Gaming heads into week two of the TIPOFF tournament hoping to continue their momentum from week one, where they finished with a 2-1 record. To defeat Hornets Venom GT, Ky has to be efficient from the field throughout to keep FlukeLock on skates defensively. Moreover, he needs to limit his offensive mistakes to keep their opponent from converting them into fast-break points. In the end, Matty has to rise to the challenge and swarm Mooch defensively so he struggles to find a rhythm on offense. If the Heat put together a clean game on both sides of the ball, they will have no problem getting the “W’.

After an up-and-down opening week of games in the TIPOFF, Hornets Venom GT looks to bounce back from their latest loss vs Hawks Talon. To take down HCG, Mooch has no choice but to be effective from the field from beginning to end to guarantee that Matty struggles to contain him defensively. Over and above that he must dynamically facilitate and do away with any blunders on offense to hinder the Hornets from having additional opportunities to convert those into points. Last but not least, FlukeLock has to exceed expectations and thwart Ky to ensure that he won’t be able to find his niche on offense. If Mooch scores in bunches and Charlotte answers the call defensively, they claim the victory. 

Prediction: Heat Check Gaming defeats Hornets Venom GT

Magic Gaming vs NetsGC

As a result of an underwhelming start to the 5v5 season, Magic Gaming finds themselves looking to find their footing as they square off with NetsGC. To steal the victory, Unguardable has a duty to be productive from the field over the course of the game to ensure a daunting task for Streetz on the defensive side of the ball. In addition, he is obligated to not turn the ball over to keep the opponent from converting any and all offensive misfortunes into transition points. Next, Snubby has got to ramp up the intensity and suffocate Greens defensively to impede him from finding any offensive flow during the game. If the Magic check all of these boxes, they steal the game convincingly.

After finishing 1-2 in the opening week of the TIPOFF, NetsGC aims to put their best foot forward in week two and knock off Magic Gaming. To do this, Greens must be prolific from the field from start to finish to keep Snubby at bay on the defensive end of the floor and minimize any offensive mistakes to give the Nets their best chance of coming out on top. To wrap up, Streetz has to come through with flying colors on defense and squelch Unguardable from finding his pace on offense. If Greens lights up the scoreboard and NGC creates pandemonium on defense, they walk away as winners.

Prediction: NetsGC defeats Magic Gaming

At last, Bagmotion has to meet the required standard and suppress Benzo to be assured that he won’t be able to have his way on offense. If the roos check these boxes, they capture the game.
