While the young Memphis Grizzlies can’t take the court right now, Grizz Gaming will have you covered throughout the month of May and well into June. The young core of Ja Morant, Brandon Clarke, and Jaren Jackson Jr., have shocked the NBA landscape this season, and Grizz Gaming will be looking to do the same this season.

Grizz Gaming will tip of their season tonight against Raptors Uprising GC. Both teams coming off of solid seasons, but didn’t equal a playoff opportunity.

For Grizz Gaming, it will be a matchup with the goal of slowing down the streaking Raptors. With two wins already under their belt, the Raptors also have the 2K League Player of the Week in Kenneth Hailey (@KennyGotWork) who averaged 35 points per game, 5.4 assists, including a 51 point outing against the 76ers.

Grizz Gaming will have their hands full, but are oozing with confidence following another positive offseason. Grizz Gaming General Manager Lang Whitaker made several moves during the 2K League Draft to fill out the roster, including adding a superstar big man in Dayvon Curry (@GOOFY757), who played his last two seasons with Knicks Gaming. Last season, Curry averaged 14.4 PPG, 14.9 RPG (Best in the 2K league), 5.0 assists, and 1.2 blocks.

“We run a pick and roll offense, so (@ImVandii) and Goofy had had time to work on their communication during this delay,” Grizz Gaming General Manager discussed how the pause to the season has helped their Point Guard (Vandi) and Center (GOOFY757) out.

Both teams looking to take the next step. Memphis looking to start the season off right, and the Raptors looking to add to their two game winning streak. Raptors Uprising GC and Grizz Gaming will tip off tonight at 7:00 P.M. on ESPN2, Youtube, or on Twitch.
