May 22, 2023 – Coming off an exhilarating victory in the STEAL OPEN tournament Blazer5 Gaming proved themselves a worthy opponent and extended their stay in Washington D.C. as they prepared for in-person 3v3 Playoffs. Entering as the underdog, Blazer5 was ready to fiercely battle Bucks Gaming, Knicks Gaming and NBL Oz Gaming.
Kicking off the Playoffs, B5 challenged Bucks Gaming in a three-match series where B5 closely kept pace with their new foe, but despite a hard-fought game, B5 fell to Bucks Gaming. Hungry for a win, B5 immediately went head-to-head against Knicks Gaming. Prior to the 3v3 Playoffs, B5 encountered Knicks Gaming at THE SLAM tournament where they lost to Knicks Gaming 0-3. This time B5 was prepared to strike and brought home a win as they crushed Knicks Gaming 3-1. Still holding on to a shot to beat the odds, B5 took on the new Australian franchise, NBL Oz Gaming which resulted in four matches but an ultimate loss of 1-3 for B5.
As 3v3 gameplay closes out, B5 looks forward to showcasing their entire roster as 5v5 gameplay starts this Tuesday, May 23 in THE TIPOFF tournament. This week B5 will first play against Kings Guard Gaming, then T-Wolves Gaming and close out the week against Lakers Gaming. THE TIP OFF will even see B5 take on 3v3 Champions DUX Infinitos.
