The NBA 2K League saw another wave of sweeps Friday night with Kings Guard Gaming and Wizards District Gaming requiring just two games a piece to pick up a series win. 

No highlight will stand out more than the final seconds of the Kings' Game 2 victory over Grizz Gaming, when Bash grabbed the ball on the wing down one with 1.1 seconds on the clock and sank a buzzer-beating three for the win 60-58. 

After trailing 53-40 at the start of the fourth quarter, the Kings clawed their way back with a tremendous effort on both ends, scoring the most points in a period all night with 20 while holding the Grizz to just five points.

Heat Check Gaming vs. Jazz Gaming postponed due to technical difficulties 



The only series to go a full three games Friday, the Knicks looked ready to rout the Celtics after a 69-43 blowout in Game 1, but Boston was able to quickly turn the momentum with a one-point victory in Game 2. 

Game 3 seemed like the Celtics' opportunity to push the pace, but connectivity issues delayed the action late in the fourth quarter, requiring a system reset. Once the game resumed, the Knicks raced out to a halftime lead and had no trouble hanging on.

Duck went off for New York in both victories, scoring 39 in Game 1 and 31 in Game 3. He was held to just 14 points in the Game 2 loss, giving opponents plenty to work with as they prepare for future matchups. 

The point guard battle between Snubby on the Hornets and JBM on the Wizards lit up the two-game series in the mid-Atlantic despite the outcome for Charlotte.

You thought @JackMascone iced Round 1, right? @ExposeHim__ had other plans. 😤 https://t.co/s0nF4H21vj

Game 1 saw each guard post 27 points, though JBM dished out 14 assists while Snubby had just five. Game 2 saw a more defensive battle with Snubby held to just 13 points while JBM notched 19. Snubby did begin frustrating his counterpart a bit more, however, as JBM had a series-high seven turnovers on just four assists.
