It’s hard to believe how quickly time has flown by, but NBA 2K League is now in the home stretch for the 2019 season. The Week 9 results are official and so far two of the league’s teams have qualified for playoffs spots. That said, six more teams will get into the postseason. Here we’ll take a look at how the latest NBA 2K League standings are shaping the playoff picture, as well as current stats leaders.
NBA 2K League Standings & Playoffs Picture
So far, three teams in the NBA 2K League standings have clinched 2019 Playoffs spots. The Blazer5 Gaming squad’s regular-season record of 12-1 has them qualified, while Mavs Gaming (11-2) also qualified. Meanwhile, Warriors Gaming Squad won The Ticket to qualify. That leaves five other spots for deserving teams to make it into the mix.
There are just three weeks for teams to battle their way into those six other spots. Right now, three teams are already eliminated due to their records. Sorry Knicks Gaming (2-10), Lakers Gaming (2-11) and Pistons GT (1-12), there’s always next season to get a spot with a better showing.
