The Squad is rolling:

No question, Grizz Gaming is rolling. No question which guy is leading the Grizz drastic turnaround, either. Grizz Guard ‘Vandi’ has turned his entire season around, and in turn the Grizz are still in the hunt for a playoff spot. Vandi headed into week five averaging close to 30 ppg, and has stepped up in week five.

Leading the Grizz to a huge comeback victory on Tuesday night against Celtics Crossover Gaming after losing game one. Vandi averaged 30.7 ppg, nine assists, and three steals in the series win against the Celtics.

Vandi wasn’t the only guy who has stepped up during this winning streak. Authenticafr (Double A) switched builds in the Celtics series and bolstered the Grizz not just defensively, but offensively averaging a little over 20 ppg in Tuesday nights series against Boston. The question still remains if Authentic will be his two-way finisher, who we ran with to the court against the Pistons tonight.

Scouting the Enemy:

Tonight Grizz Gaming will take on a 1-4 Pistons Gaming Team at 8:00 P.M. CT on the ESPN App, Twitch and Youtube. For the Pistons, some soul searching will be needed following two tough losses back-to-back where the team looked inconsistent on both ends.

Watching the Pistons last night, it seemed like the team was on two different pages. There was no structure at times where they had chances to get back into the two games against Cavs Gaming.

Game one between the Cavs and Pistons, was the Pistons opportunity to take control of the series, but the Pistons just couldn’t get stops. Game two was a similar story, a chance to push the series to a third game, and the Pistons run came too late leading to their fourth loss of the season.

In both games, the Pistons showed inconsistencies from scoring throughout the lineup, and are searching for answers heading into tonight’s matchup with a hot Grizzz Gaming squad.
