Bucks Gaming rebounded from a round down to stun Jazz Gaming on Thursday night in Week 9 NBA 2K League play.
It was just the second loss suffered by the Jazz (9-2). Bucks Gaming improved to 6-5 despite losing Round 1 71-67. But Bucks Gaming stormed back, taking Round 2 87-84 and Round 3 89-80 for their biggest win of the season.
The Bucks were down five points at the break in Round 2 before pulling out the victory behind Regg's 48 points, seven assists and five steals. The Bucks trailed again in Round 3 but pounded out a 23-16 second quarter en route to the win. It was all Regg in Round 3, too, as he posted 26 points on 10-for-15 shooting and 20 assists.
In another matchup Thursday, Grizz Gaming (6-6) kept their playoff hopes alive with a hard-fought win over Blazer5 Gaming (5-6), whose season took another hard hit. Blazer5 have now lost seven of their past eight after a hot start.
Grizz Gaming crushed Blazer5 in Round 1 72-43. But Blazer5 rebounded with a 69-62 win in Round 2 before Grizz posted an emphatic 85-69 win in Round 3 to take the series. Vandi (38 points, 11 assists) and AuthenticAfrican (21 points) were too much for Blazer5 in Round 3.
