For the first time in NBA 2K League history a team has completed the regular season undefeated. Raptors Uprising GC, NBA 2K League affiliate of the 2019 NBA champion Toronto Raptors, earned it by sweeping Cavs Legion GC.
Raptors Uprising went undefeated through 27 matchups in all competitions, winning the two in-season tournaments along the way: THE TIPOFF and THE TURN powered by AT&T. In doing so, they became the first team in the league’s three-year history to capture the first two tournaments of the season, taking home USD $192,000 in prize money for their efforts.
The job isn’t finished. Following their undefeated regular season run, Raptors Uprising enter the 2020 NBA 2K League Playoffs as the No. 1 seed and earn a bye into the quarter-finals where they will face the winner of Hornets Venom GT (9-7) and NetsGC (8-8).
The 10-team playoffs, with USD $920,000 up for grabs, will tip off remotely Thursday, August 20 and culminate with a best-of-five 2020 NBA 2K League Finals on Saturday, August 29.
