Hawks Talon GC, the official NBA 2K League affiliate of the Atlanta Hawks, were eliminated from the TICKET on Tuesday night after falling to the No. 5 Nets GC 88-79, ending their 2024 season.

Talon entered the last chance tournament as the No. 4 seed, amassing 60 points over the TIPOFF and TURN 5v5 tournaments.

“Ending the season in the TICKET is always a tough way to go out, but there are a ton of things we can take away,” said Hawks Talon Head Coach Ismael ‘MAELO’ Diaz Tolentino. “The way Bait, Duck, Low, and E all meshed with MDS in their first year with us is something to be proud of. Our guys fought throughout both threes and fives all season, and all of them should keep their heads up going into next year.”

Talon finished 3v3 gameplay with a 7-9 record over group and bracket play, including a 4-4 record in bracket play, and finished the 5v5 season with a 6-6 record over the TIPOFF and TURN.

During the 3v3 SLAM tournament, Talon finished as one of the top six teams, starting out 3-0 in bracket play and earning $8,000 from the prize pool.

He also became only the second player in franchise history to win Player of the Week.
