LeBron James and the Cavs play the Nets in 2K18
The NBA 2K franchise’s next title will be the first title for the Brooklyn Nets, and it’s shaping up to be one of the most exciting games in NBA history.
The NBA 2k franchise’s first title will come on Feb. 24 when the Brooklyn Cavaliers take on the Miami Heat at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
LeBron James’ Cavaliers will be hoping to make their first title since 2011-12, when they won their first NBA title.
In addition to the Cavaliers, the NBA 2,000 series will also feature two teams from the East: the Atlanta Hawks and Brooklyn Nets.
The Hawks and Nets play each other twice, with the Hawks winning their first game of the season on Jan. 30 and the Nets losing their first of the series on Feb 1.
In the NBA, each team plays its two most-recent opponents twice before facing off for the first time.
