Powered by an excellent defensive effort in the fourth quarter and a game-high 33 points from G O O F Y 7 5 7Knicks Gaming ended their losing streak in thrilling fashion by beating 76ers Gaming, 77-70, Saturday.

Looking to shake things up, Knicks Gaming opted for a lineup change with IdrisDaGoat6 playing small forward and NateKahl moving over to the power forward spot.

But it would be the boys from Philly who would jump out to an early lead despite a huge first-half performance from G O O F Y.

Knicks Gaming would close the gap at the end of the half, but still found themselves down three at the halftime interval.

G O O F Y continued to dominate down low and even gave Knicks Gaming the lead in the third quarter.

Nevertheless, the resilient home side would find a way to battle back. This three-point play from iamadamthe1st put Knicks Gaming up for good with 1:09 to go.

Yet another monstrous game from G O O F Y lifted Knicks Gaming to hard-earned “dub.”
