NiP beat Cloud9; Na`Vi ease past Giants at BLAST

NiP came back from 12-5 to beat Cloud9 16-14 on Nuke while Natus Vincere secured their second victory as they defeated Giants 16-4 on Dust2.

NiP took on Cloud9 on Nuke and kicked off the match on the T-side. Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund came close to clutching a 1vs4 in the pistol round but William "RUSH" Wierzba prevented the Swedish player from doing so.

The sides traded blows through the first four rounds and the game was tied at 2-2. Cloud9 then took charge to secure four consecutive rounds, leading 6-2. NiP grabbed their third round thanks to Fredrik "REZ" Sterner's triple kill but the Swedes were unable to start a streak.

NiP completed the comeback

Timothy "autimatic" Ta got the better of REZ in a 1vs1 to extend his team's lead to 9-3 and Cloud9 went on to finish the half 10-5 ahead. The North Americans made it 12-5 after taking the first two rounds in the second half.

NiP won nine rounds in a row thanks to their impressive defense, leading 14-12. Cloud9 finally found success in a gun round as they took the A-site in the 27th. NiP then earned two map points and converted the second one into the match victory.
