Four starters scored at least 20 points while backup guard Cassius Winston chipped in with 18 off the bench in just nine minutes. The fourth-seeded Go-Go never trailed in the game, setting up a second-round matchup with No. 1 Raptors 905.
The first round, conference semifinals and conference finals are all win-or-go-home, single-elimination games. If the Go-Go makes it to the NBA G League Finals, a best-of-three series would await. However, Toronto’s affiliate finished 24-8 in the regular season, the best record in the G League this year.
The Go-Go went 21-10, clinching the first playoff berth in the franchise’s young history. Tip-off for the team’s second-round matchup is scheduled for Thursday at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBA TV.
