Josh Hart helps snag a win in SLAM’s latest Call of Duty tourney

New Orleans Pelicans guard Josh Hart maintained his perfect record Saturday in SLAM’s fourth Call of Duty: Modern Warfare tournament.

The tourney was close, with the squad of NBA players defeating a team made up of mostly high school players, 4-3, in a seven game series.

Hart’s team included Miami Heat big man Meyers Leonard, Sacramento Kings guard De’Aaron Fox, Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker and Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kevin Porter Jr. Ben Simmons played in a couple of the games, but he wasn’t able to play for the first three matches. He was out in the latter half of the series because of technical difficulties.

The other team was made up of Kentucky commits Terrence Clarke and Isaiah Jackson, along with fellow high school hoopers Jalen Suggs and Adam Miller. Former Duke point guard Tre Jones also was on the team.

Hart wasn’t the star of the NBA team, but he was a solid contributor. The NBA squad had one of its closest games in the third game of the series. The two teams played Domination on the map Vacant.

Hart finished with 24 kills, and his team won 200-195. Booker, who was the MVP of last week’s tourney, had a team-high 40 kills in Domination.

One of Hart’s best performances came when the two teams played Capture the Flag on Rammaza. The NBA team won 2-0, and Hart had 15 kills, the third-highest mark on the team behind Booker and Fox. He also had one of the two captures, with Simmons snagging the other one.

As a regular in the Call of Duty tourneys, Hart has been a staple for his teams. With Hart being around other skilled gamers such as Leonard, Fox and Booker, he can be a viable sidekick for players who are just as good or better than him.
