Knicks Gaming Can’t Slow Down Red-Hot Cavs Legion GC

By: Lucky Ngamwajasat

It was just one of those nights for Knicks Gaming.

The home team couldn’t get it going early and suffered their biggest loss yet during the NBA 2K League season, falling, 82-58, to Cavs Legion GC.

As always, Knicks Gaming came to the stage supported by the hometown fans.

Despite the normal home-court advantage, Knicks Gaming would find itself down by 9 after the first quarter. Twelve points from Goddd2k in the first quarter put Knicks Gaming behind early.

Knicks Gaming would hang around in the first half, thanks to the exploits of G O O F Y 7 5 7.

G O O F Y certainly was hyped up leading the comeback.

But despite G O O F Y’s best efforts, Knicks Gaming found themselves down 9 at the half.

Unfortunately for Knicks Gaming, Cavs Legion GC would turn up the intensity on defense and racked up points on the fast break.

Cavs Legion GC would go on to cruise to its third straight win, as Knicks Gaming heads back to the drawing board.

A warning for the rest of the NBA 2K League: G O O F Y is using Friday’s defeat as motivation.

STAT OF THE NIGHT:  Knicks Gaming struggled with its outside shooting, going just 3-for-15 from beyond the arc.
