Warriors Gaming Squad ended Friday night's matchup with Cavs Legion GC the same way they began: Undefeated in the NBA 2K League.
A perfect 4-0 start for WGS has them sitting in a three-way tie for first place with Mavs Gaming and Raptors Uprising GC. It was the second series win in Week 2 for WGS after beating 76ers GC on Wednesday.
WGS swept the best-of-three series, but both games against Cavs Legion on Friday were hard-fought.
Slaughter nailed both free throws in the final seconds of Game 1 after grabbing a huge offensive rebound, sealing a 61-56 win. The game was tied at 56 apiece headed into the final minute. In Game 2, we saw something CB13 and WGS we haven't seen so far this season: A low-scoring first half, as the team's leading scorer went cold.
WGS overcame a slow start in the 61-47 win, in large part because they have multiple people on the roster who can step up on offense when needed. Bsmoove took over in the second quarter, and he helped turn a 5-point deficit at the end of the first quarter into a 2-point lead at halftime.
It was a full team effort in the second half, and WGS started to look more like themselves. They slowly pulled away for a double-digit victory in Game 2 and a series win.

We're not accustomed to seeing that kind of performance from Warriors Gaming Squad this season, but they're happy to stay undefeated regardless.
WGS will have just one matchup in Week 3 against Lakers Gaming on Tuesday.
