Raptors Uprising GC Announce First Six Weeks of NBA 2K League Season 3

TORONTO, Canada—It’s time to get back to work.

The NBA 2K League announced today their schedule through Week 6 of the 2020 season. Refueled and retooled, Toronto’s Raptors Uprising GC will open Season 3 with a marquee matchup against defending finalists 76ers GC on Tuesday, May 5 with tipoff set for 7 p.m. ET.

Toronto will then quickly turn its attention to 2020 first-overall pick JBM and his Wizards District Gaming team on May 6 to round out the opening week.

As announced earlier, league teams will participate in regular-season gameplay remotely for the first six weeks from their local markets with games broadcasted live on the NBA 2K League’s Twitch and YouTube channels. Games will begin at 7 p.m. ET every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with four distinct matchups each night.

Over the course of the first six weeks, Raptors Uprising will play nine matches that will count towards its regular-season record. However, new in 2020, every remote matchup will be played in a best-of-three format with one series victory representing one win in the standings.

In Season 3, players are also competing for the largest prize pool in league history: a total of $1.4 million USD, with $420,000 going to the NBA 2K League champions.

Fans can stream all of Raptors Uprising’s action on the team’s Twitch channel.
