Raptors Uprising GC finished off its undefeated regular season in the 2K League Friday, and it wasn't particularly close. 

In its final Week 12 matchup, Toronto rolled over Cavs Legion GC in straight games, winning by a combined 81 points to post a 16-0 record. No other club had more than 14 wins on the season, and the Raptors easily clinched the No. 1 seed in the playoffs.

Highlights

Any team that wants to stop the Raptors in the postseason will need to find a way to slow down point guard Kenny Got Work first. Toronto's scoring machine saw his three-point streak snapped at 21 made shots on Friday while posting 41 points and nine rebounds in Game 1.

👀 @KennyGotWork is now 21 for his last 21 from beyond the arc. Seriously. 😱 https://t.co/RK75C7ezx9

Kenny added 48 points, six assists and five steals for good measure in Game 2, combining to go 36-for-41 shooting from the floor in the series. 

Not to be outdone, center Sick One posted a triple-double in Game 1 (10 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists) with 17 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists in Game 2. It was an absolute beatdown against a Cavs team (4-12) that was never able to find consistent success this season.

16-0 man! That’s basically impossible, especially playing against the best NBA2K players in the world. Whether online or LAN, we’ve been putting the work in and I’m proud of these guys. The job obviously isn’t finished but I promise I’m not done 💯

Elsewhere across the league, a playoff-bound Wizards team took a surprising stumble against a 76ers GC club that hasn't threatened too many contenders this year. Game 2 between the teams saw the Sixers surge ahead in the second half to win by four after guard Radiant went off for 46 points. 

The Wizards promptly adjusted for Game 3 with JBM dropping 31 points while center Dayfri added 30 points, 14 boards and seven assists. A 15-point victory helped avoid what would've been a brutal way to end the regular season in DC. 

Hawks Talon (7-9) just missed out on a guaranteed spot in the playoffs but found some success before heading into The Ticket next week with a quick sweep of Heat Check Gaming (5-11).

Atlanta point guard BP notched 41 points and eight assists in Game 1 with another 27 points and 14 assists in Game 2. He'll be one of the players to watch out for both in The Ticket and next season.
