Back To The Drawing Board: Raptors Uprising GC sufferers disappointing loss to Gen.G Tigers

Despite dropping 21 points in the fourth quarter, Raptors Uprising GC fell to their second straight defeat of The Turn, falling 63-47 to the Gen.G Tigers.

Toronto is now 0-2 with four games left to play before a potential berth to the next round.

After losing by just one point to Heat Check Gaming two days prior, Raptors Uprising knew how important it was to get the win against Gen.G. Yet, a slow start once again hurt the squad and their hopes of maintaining total control of the game.

Down 14 after the first quarter, Toronto had their work cut out for them, and in spite of a better second quarter, the Raptors were behind by 16 points at the half.

A total of just 16 points were scored between the two teams in third before Raptors Uprising’s fightback in the fourth. Ultimately, a 16-point loss condemned Toronto to their second defeat of group play.

BallLikeSeem recorded another double-double with 16 points and 13 rebounds, while Mooch was the only other player in double figures in points, with 14.

Head coach Roy Krishnan reflected on the result post-game.

“We knew what they were capable of, and we didn’t execute.”

“We looked jumpy off the rip, and did not play well on both sides of the court.”

“They’re a really good team, and hopefully we see them again in the playoffs.”

“I hope our guys learned something from playing Gen.G.”

Ahead of four massive games, Krishnan remained adamant that his group are still gunning for playoffs.

“We should still be in a good spot, and the goal still hasn’t changed. This loss hasn’t changed anything.”

“Expect us to still be fighting for that fourth and fifth seed come tomorrow and next week.”

Raptors Uprising GC are back in action on Friday, June 23rd against NBL Oz Gaming, with tipoff scheduled for 9:00pm ET.
