Share post:

Warriors Gaming Squad, the No. 1 seed in the West, and third-seeded Pistons GT each rallied Thursday to advance to the conference finals of the NBA 2K League’s The Turn event in Washington.

The Warriors beat fourth-seeded T-Wolves Gaming 2-1 and the Pistons topped No. 2 seed Pacers Gaming by the same score. The winners will face off in the Western Conference finals on Friday.

After losing the first game 75-59, the Warriors rolled to a 92-58 win thanks to 28 points and 13 rebounds from Jaden “Nay” Bhopal and 19 points and 14 assists from Charlie “CB13” Bostwick.

The Warriors completed their comeback with an 87-68 win. Kenneth “Kenny Got Work” Haley had a team-high 25 points on 10-of-11 shooting from the floor in the win. Michael “BearDaBeast” Key had 19 points and nine assists in the third game, but it wasn’t enough for the T-Wolves.

The Pacers jumped out in front with an 88-84 win thanks to 33 points and six assists from Caesar “Ceez” Martinez.

Pacers Gaming appeared to be headed for a sweep after leading 23-14 heading into the second quarter of Game 2, but Pistons GT outscored them 40-30 in the second half and won 90-86 in overtime. Anthony “ANT” Costanzo finished with 31 points and 12 assists to force a third game.

Solomona “Mona” Faitaua-Nanai had 23 points and 11 rebounds to lead Pistons GT to an 89-76 victory in the deciding game.

Top-seeded Heat Check Gaming and second-seeded Celtics Crossover Gaming will square off in the Eastern Conference final on Friday.

The Turn, which carries a $160,000 prize pool, is the second of three tournaments that lead up to the NBA 2K League 5v5 Playoffs that run June 26-29. Last month, Warriors Gaming Squad won The Tipoff. The Turn runs through Saturday, and the final tournament, The Ticket, will be contested from Tuesday through June 22.
