The Grizz are welcomed back to action following a week off this past week. Week nine involves two very strong opponents for the Grizz as they will take on Mavs Gaming (8-4), and Blazer5 Gaming (5-5).

With two tough games in week nine, Grizz Gaming will need to hit the ground running as they sit in the middle of a log jam in the NBA2K League Standings. Tied with Blazer5 Gaming for 11th, the Grizz have an opportunity to take a leap this week.

Scouting the Enemies:

Grizz Gaming starts out their week nine against Mavs Gaming tonight at 6:00 P.M. CT live on Twitch and Youtube. This is a game that will be crucial for Grizz Gaming in order to move up the standings. Currently sitting in the middle of the pack, the Grizz have an opportunity to move up a few spots tonight with a win against the Mavs who sit a game ahead of Memphis.

A huge matchup tonight against Grizz Gaming center G O O F Y 7 5 7, and Mavs Gaming big man PeteBeBallin. Sitting in the top three in the 2K League in blocks (3.3), and seventh in the league in FG% (71%), PeteBeBalling and Goofy look like quite the matchup tonight.

Mavs Gaming, coming off of a tough loss against Blazer5 Gaming last Wednesday night, has one thing on their mind coming into tonight’s matchup against the Grizz.

Following Memphis’ matchup with the Mavs, the Grizz have a statement game against one of the 2K leagues premier teams, Blazer5 Gaming. The Blazers are sitting in a similar situation as Memphis, with an opportunity to move up in the standings will be one of the games to watch Thursday night.

The Thursday night matchup will tip-off at 8:00 P.M. CT on Twitch and Youtube, and will be a huge game for both clubs. A matchup to watch on Thursday night will be Blazer5 Gaming Point Guard Mama Im Dat Man, and Grizz Gaming Point Guard Vandi. Two of the better scoring and facilitating floor generals in the 2K League facing off on Thursday night is appointment television.
