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.
