Hawks Talon GC first game of THE TICKET will be Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. against Nets GC

Hawks Talon GC, the official NBA 2K League affiliate of the Atlanta Hawks, will begin play in the TICKET on Tuesday night against No. 5 Nets GC at 6:00 p.m.

Like the STEAL during the 3v3 portion of the season, the last-chance, single-elimination 5v5 tournament includes all 15 NBA 2K League teams that did not clinch a spot in the 5v5 playoffs. The final two teams in the TICKET will earn a spot in the 5v5 playoffs beginning June 26, with the winner of the playoffs receiving a winner-take-all cash prize. The full bracket can be found here.

“It’s going to be a really intense tournament,” said Hawks Talon GC point guard Christopher “Duck” Charles. “Every team has their back against the wall fighting to extend the season, but we’re equipped and have the right talent and roster to go out and win these types of games.”

Hawks Talon finished 6-6 and collected 60 points through the TIPOFF and TURN, earning 30 points in the TIPOFF and 30 points in the TURN to earn the No. 4 seed heading into the TICKET.

Should the Talon win their first game, they would play the winner of No. 1 Knicks Gaming and No. 8 Hornets Venom GT the same night at 8:00 p.m. If the Talon win both games, they will advance to the final day of the TICKET on June 22, which will be on stage at District E Gaming in Washington, D.C. All games can be followed on the NBA 2K League’s Twitch and YouTube channels.
