E-Korea Curse: Promy sweeps Playbook to take NBA 2K20 The Pacific crown


The curse of South Korea continued to haunt the Philippines even in the virtual stage.

Promy wielded the upset axe on Asian powerhouse Playbook Laus Esports, sweeping the Filipinos 3-0 to win the inaugural The NBA 2K20 The Pacific Pro-Am Tournament, Sunday evening.

In the title-clinching Game Three, the Koreans rallied behind Skante to lead by as much as 15 points in the second quarter before ending the first half at 27-14.

Playbook Esports — who composed the Philippine team that dominated the FIBA Esports Open — however could not recover from there, suffering a 32-49 victory to surrender the title to Promy.

Kante was named best player of the match with 13 points, six rebounds, and two assists for Promy.

JeCho added 15 points, four assists, three steals, and two boards while Jinagagyu had 10 points and three steals.

Izzo, on the other hand, carried the scoring cudgels for Playbook with 18 big points on 9-of-14 shooting from the field.

Rial and Shintarou was held to just seven and five points, respectively.

Playbook actually had a good start in the series opener but fell short, 50-59, in Game One while finally taking huge beat down, 24-47, in Game Three.

Earlier in the day, Promy eliminated another Filipino squad in The Badboys in the semifinals, 46-48, 65-45, 64-43, 55-33, to earn their finals slot.

PBE, on the other hand, swept Singapore’s Secret Loves, 67-65, 54-42, 62-61, also in the semis.
