NBA 2K League releases schedule for “The Turn”

The NBA 2K League today announced its game schedule for “THE TURN,” the season’s second tournament, with Grizz Gaming playing its first round matchup against 76ers GC on Friday, June 8 at 2 p.m. CT. All games will be streamed live on Twitch and take place from the NBA 2K League Studio Powered by Intel in New York City.

The single-elimination tournament tips off on Friday, June 8 with a play-in game for the 16th and 17th seeds, which will be immediately followed by eight games featuring the 1st-15th seeds and winner of the play-in game. Friday’s winners will advance, and eight teams will compete on Saturday with the goal of making it to the championship game at 6 p.m. ET. Seeding was determined by a team’s performance during the four weeks of regular-season games preceding “THE TURN.”

The winner of “THE TURN” will earn half of the $150,000 prize pool, with the remainder being awarded to the second to eighth place teams (first place – $75,600; second place – $24,800; third and fourth place – $12,800; fifth-eighth place – $6,000).

“THE TURN” is the second of three tournaments that will be played throughout the season. Each team that wins a tournament will take home a coveted steel champion banner – with the goal of collecting all three banners that link together to form THE BANNER CHAIN.
