HEAT Check Gaming Grind Out Victory Over Lakers

Take a bow, squad.

It took an 18-8 run in the third quarter to propel HEAT Check Gaming out of an early slump, but Famous Enough and his team ultimately came out on top to secure a 44-39 win over Lakers Gaming and lift themselves to 3-1 on the regular season.

Lotty came out strong for Miami, scoring a game-high 17 points on near-perfect 6-of-7 shooting from the field, while JMoneyRep817 dropped 12 points and 6 assists. Hotshot continued his strong play in the post, adding 7 points and 4 assists to a game-high 18 rebounds, which lifts the Miami native to 14.3 RPG in regular season play, the fourth-highest mark in the league.

KontruL controlled his turnovers well most of the game, only committing 3 turnovers to 7 assists, along with 10 points, and Vert scored a season-high 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting from the field to go with a game-high 6 steals. Mootyy took care of business in the post, scoring 10 points and pulling down 12 rebounds for the game’s lone double-double on either side of the ball.

As a team, Lakers Gaming earned 11 steals and forced 16 total turnovers on HEAT Check Gaming, which left Miami in a tough spot before they went on their run.

However, Kev and Detoxys, who had carried much of the scoring load early in the regular season for Los Angeles, combined for just 5 points on 2-of-16 shooting on the night.

HEAT Check Gaming returns to the Brooklyn Studios to face Mavs Gaming Thursday night at 6:00 PM ET.
