BLAZER 15: Blazer5 Gaming enters the final week of the regular season on a record 14-game regular-season winning streak. The team has been led by MVP finalist Nidal “Mama Im Dat Man” Nasser, the league’s leading scorer (22.9 PPG). Portland has already clinched the No. 1 overall seed in the 2019 NBA 2K League Playoffs, but is looking to continue their positive momentum. Mama Im Dat Man and Blazer5 Gaming will visit T-Wolves Gaming tonight at 6 p.m. ET.
WOLVES LOOK TO DO IT AGAIN: In May, T-Wolves Gaming entered THE TURN powered by AT&T as an underdog but recorded a major upset by defeating Blazer5 Gaming 63- 59. In that victory, point guard Michael “BearDaBeast” Key posted a double-double with 16 points and 11 assists while shooting guard Christopher “TURNUPDEFENSE” Anderson netted 18 points. Minnesota is currently 9-6 in the regular season and is seeking to defeat Portland again to significantly improve their playoff aspirations.
