Week 2 of Kings Guard Gaming's NBA 2K League season looked much like the team's first.

KGG went 1-1 once again, beating Gen.G Tigers on Thursday and losing to Mavs Gaming on Friday.

Thursday's best-of-three series with Gen.G game down to the last game, after KGG and the Tigers split the first two. KGG cruised to a 78-55 blowout win in Game 1, clicking on all cylinders during a 23-2 fourth-quarter run.

DatBoyShotz did a little bit of everything and racked up a triple-double.

Gen.G controlled most of Game 2, winning 68-61 and putting the game out of reach with a dominant second quarter.

KGG won Game 3, but they needed to pull off another comeback in the 64-57 victory. They trailed by seven at the end of the first quarter but led by one at the half and never looked back after that. The defense made some big plays in the second half to clinch the series.

Kings Guard couldn't sustain the momentum Friday against Mavs Gaming, who improved to 4-0 and moved into a tie for first in the 2K League standings.

 

Mavs Gaming pulled away in the second half for a 71-52 win in Game 1. Kings Guard once again ran into connection issues, which also troubled them in Week 1. The game had to be reset about a minute in.

KGG bounced back in a big way in the second game, winning 67-48. They led for most of the game and really pulled away in the third quarter, and DatBoyShotz led the team with 26 points and 9 rebounds.

Game 3 was close until the last few minutes. Kings Guard started to struggle, which opened the door for Mavs Gaming to build a late lead en route to a 59-51 win.

The loss puts Kings Guard Gaming at a record of 2-2 on the season and sitting middle of the pack. They'll have a bye week in Week 3 before taking on Grizz Gaming and Jazz Gaming in Week 4.
