NBA2K News: Magic, Grizz move into The Tipoff’s conference semis


Magic Gaming rolled to a sweep in the conference quarterfinals of the NBA 2K League’s 5v5 The Tipoff event on Friday, while Grizz Gaming moved on in a tighter 2-0 match.

The Magic downed Heat Check Gaming 74-65 and 68-55 to move on to an Eastern Conference semifinal matchup against 76ers GC.

In a Western Conference quarterfinal, the Grizz eked out a 78-76 overtime win against Pacers Gaming, then sealed the series with a 69-64 victory. The Grizz move on to face Warriors Gaming Squad.

The Grizz dunked on their first four possessions of OT, one a second-chance basket, to build a lead. The Grizz’s Harry “CP” Friedman sank two free throws with 7.3 seconds left to make it a four-point game, rendering a last-second 3-pointer from the Pacers’ Gilbert “Range” Santiago meaningless.

CP averaged 29.5 points and eight assists per game in the series. Dylan “Greenlight” Sanderson put up 27.5 points and eight assists per game for the Pacers.

Jarvis “Simptoms” Thompson led the Magic with 25 points per game, while teammate Joshua “unguardable” Hunter put up 20.5 points and 9.5 assists per contest. Ky “Ky” Johnson averaged 29 points for the Heat.

The semifinal matchups:
Eastern Conference
–NBL Oz Gaming vs. Gen.G Tigers
–Magic Gaming vs. 76ers GC
Western Conference
–Bucks Gaming vs. T-Wolves Gaming
–Grizz Gaming vs. Warriors Gaming Squad

The NBA 2K League 5v5 season will include three tournaments — The Tipoff, The Turn and The Ticket — that will set the field for the playoffs, scheduled for Aug. 2-5 in Washington.

Remote group play in The Tipoff set the field for this week’s remote bracket play. The $250,000 tournament will conclude with in-person tournament play at District E in Washington, Wednesday through June 17.
