It was a game to forget for Raptors Uprising GC as Cavs Legion GC took total control in the fourth quarter to record a 79-66 win.
Toronto is now 1-3 in 5v5 Seed Weeks with just one more game left to play.
It is now confirmed that Raptors Uprising will play in The Ticket as opposed to earning an automatic berth to the playoffs.
With three straight losses, morale within the group has definitely taken a hit, but there is undoubtedly still a fight to be fought for the rest of the season.
Unlike what we’ve seen over the last couple of weeks, Toronto came out in the first quarter and ended the first six minutes of play with the lead. Up 15-14 at the end of the first, things were looking up for Raptors Uprising heading into the rest of the game.
The second quarter saw Cleveland outscore Toronto by two, leaving Raptors Uprising down one point at halftime.
Another tightly contested quarter in the third saw the Cavs narrowly extend their lead to two points, which foreshadowed a nail-biting fourth.
Unfortunately, Cleveland turned on the jets and scored 33 points in the fourth to seal a 13-point victory over Raptors Uprising.
Kenny Got Work led the team in scoring with 25 points, with FantaSZN just behind him on 20. Plondo recorded yet another double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds, while Big Saint tallied four steals to lead the squad in that category.
After the game, an emotional Fanta reflected on the disappointing result.
“Team wise, this is an all-time low. It’s been a tough season, we definitely feel like we’ve underachieved.”
“At the same time though, I’m excited to get back on that stage and I really don’t see us losing when we get there.”
Fanta then spoke on how Friday’s final game is still important to him and the team.
“I think it matters because I’m still finding my stride and keep trying to be the best player I can be.”
“Hopefully we can pull it out when it matters most and everything else will fall into place.”
Raptors Uprising GC plays their final 5v5 game of Seed Weeks on Friday, July 15th against Wizards District Gaming. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:00 pm EST.
