100 Thieves pushed its winning streak to eight straight matches in the League of Legends League Championship Series (LCS) Summer Split with a victory Sunday against Counter Logic Gaming.
The victory was taken in 30 minutes on red and helped maintain a one-match lead in the standings for 100 Thieves (24-9) over top pursuer TSM (23-10), who also won Sunday. The teams were tied in the standings coming into this week of play, but a loss by TSM Friday let 100 Thieves grab sole possession of first place, which they have maintained Saturday and Sunday.
Can “Closer” Celik once again led 100 Thieves Sunday with a 5-0-7 kill-death-assist ratio.
TSM dumped third-place squad Cloud9 playing on red.
