THE TICKET powered by AT&T, the NBA 2K League’s third and final tournament of the season, starts today at 4:00 PM EST through Saturday, June 15 at The Fortress at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. All of the games can be seen on Twitch and YouTube.

BLAZING HOT: Dynamic point guard Nidal “Mama Im Dat Man” Nasser (left) and Blazer5 Gaming will enter THE TICKET powered by AT&T on a 10-game regular-season winning streak. Nasser is averaging 23.5 points along with 11.3 assists per game while 2018 MVP and DPOY Dayne “OneWildWalnut” Downey has added 15.7 points and 14.0 rebounds per game for Portland. The team is looking to win their first portion of The Banner Chain powered by AT&T this season. 

BEWARE THE TOURNAMENT CELTICS: Entering THE TICKET as the No. 4 seed, Celtics Crossover Gaming is in prime position for another long tournament run. The team is 14-5 in NBA 2K League tournament play and has finished in the tournament finals three times. Point guard Albano “oFAB” Thomallari (left) is currently second in the league in scoring with 22.5 points per game while tallying 13 assists per game. 

HOMETOWN HEROES: Magic Gaming will enter THE TICKET having won three out of their last four games. Led by head coach Jonah Edwards, Orlando is 6-5 on the regular season and firmly in the playoff picture. Veteran center Cameron “KingCamRoyalty” Ford is averaging a double-double on the season with 13.8 points and 10 rebounds per game. The team has also received stellar play from the No. 9 overall selection in the 2019 Draft, Brendan “Reizey” Hill (left). The point guard is averaging a near double-double for the season with 16.3 points and 9.4 assists per game 

WITH THE TICKET, ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN: THE TICKET is the NBA 2K League’s only tournament that guarantees the winner an automatic playoff spot. Last season, Knicks Gaming entered THE TICKET with a 3-6 regular-season record, and ultimately went on to win the tournament, qualify for the playoffs, and then win the 2018 (and first-ever) NBA 2K League championship. New York took home the coveted NBA 2K League Championship trophy and received customized championship rings supplied by Baron Rings at the start of the 2019 season.
