T-Wolves Gaming Starts The Ticket Off On High Note

By Max Minsker

Family is forever.

The Ticket started off on a high note for T-Wolves Gaming as Noah Oetjen, twin brother of T-Wolves Gaming center JoJo, drove 14 hours overnight to make a surprise appearance and watch his brother live on stage for the first time.

In the video above JoJo told his twin “We getting the dub”, and he didn’t disappoint. Once again, T-Wolves Gaming got off to a scorching start, finishing the first half with a 41-22 lead. However, much like many recent T-Wolves games, Pistons GT came roaring back in the second half, cutting the lead to single digits in the fourth quarter.

Pistons GT decided to try a brand new lineup, featuring the recently acquired DevGoss at point guard while moving season-one veteran iiNsaniTTy to small forward. The Pistons made a run during the early portion of the second half, but it wasn’t enough as JMoney hit two crucial threes down the stretch pushing the game out of reach.

Late game heroics from JMoney is becoming a familiar feature of this relatively new T-Wolves lineup. Since JMoney took over at small forward using the shot creating sharpshooter archetype, the team is 3-1 with a point differential of +14.75. In those four starts, JMoney is averaging a team-high 25 points per game on 75 percent shooting from the field.

JMoney and point guard BearDaBeast have teamed up to form one of the most dynamic offensive duos in the league. On the other side of the ball, FEAST’s move to the sharpshooting rim protector archetype has made Minnesota’s pick and roll defense even more perilous for opposing point guards.

T-Wolves Gaming has been effective with their new lineup but will have their hands full tonight against defending champions from ‘The Turn’, Warriors Gaming Squad. The Warriors have been one of the 2K League’s best teams all season long, sporting a 7-4 record and a regular season point differential of +8.3, good for second in the 2K League. Fresh off the bye, Warriors Gaming Squad secured the 5th overall seed in The Ticket over the last four weeks.

Warriors Gaming Squad is a formidable opponent, but the T-Wolves are not easily intimidated. Perhaps Noah Oetjen will continue to be a good luck charm for this team, or perhaps the Warriors will defeat the T-Wolves on their way to back-to-back tournament championships. One way or another, we’ll find out tomorrow night. Be sure to tune in at https://www.twitch.tv/nba2kleague at 8:00 p.m. CT to find out!
