Club Announces Eight More Regular Season Games and Two In-Season Tournaments
Remote Gameplay Extended Through At Least Week 11
DETROIT – The NBA 2K League recently announced the continuation of remote gameplay through at least week 11 of the 2020 NBA 2K League regular season. The Pistons Gaming Team (GT) is set to play eight more regular season games and compete in two tournaments to complete its 2020 campaign. After the conclusion of the season, the 2020 playoffs will tipoff August 19-22 and the Finals will take place on August 29.
So far this season, Pistons GT has completed seven weeks of remote gameplay in its third season in the league. All NBA 2K League teams have played locally from their own markets since remote gameplay began in early May. Pistons GT is now back to playing from its gaming studio in the Henry Ford Detroit Pistons Performance Center. The club advanced to the playoff stage of THE TIPOFF tournament last week after making its debut back in the PPC studio.
Each regular season match in remote gameplay will be played in a best-of-three format with each series victory counting as one regular-season win, and each three-game-series loss representing one regular-season loss. The two remaining tournaments, THE TURN and THE TICKET, complete the three banners for THE BANNER CHAIN powered by AT&T in which teams compete for a prize pool and include round robin and single elimination play.
Games around the league will begin at 7 p.m. ET every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and will be simulcast live with league broadcasts from a virtual NBA 2K League Studio on ESPN2, ESPN3 and the NBA 2K League’s Twitch and YouTube channels.
