We’re rapidly approaching the business end of the NBA 2K Players Tournament, with Saturday’s semi-finals matchups now locked in.
Devin Booker will face Montrezl Harrell in one semi-final, while DeAndre Ayton will play Patrick Beverley in the other.
Thursday’s quarter-finals featured Harrell narrowly edging out Derrick Jones Jr and Booker blowing out Rui Hachimura.
But the spiciest action occurred later in the night.
Ayton’s victory over Trae Young – with Ayton playing with the Clippers and Young playing with the Lakers – was full of explosive dunks.
There was plenty going on in the final games of the night too, with Patrick Beverly grinding and trash-talking his way to a hard-earned win over Andre Drummond, who many considered to be the favourite due to his extensive gaming experience.

But Beverley wasn’t having a bar of it, ultimately triumphing 69-62 and playfully taunting Drummond in the process.
All the Cavs big man could do was sit back in his chair and laugh.
The semi-finals will take place on Saturday.
