This is going to be the slowest game on the slate, as LGD are second in the league in average game time (34 minutes)a and LNG are not too far behind. Additionally, both teams combined kills per minutes are bottom of the LPL at 0.71 and 0.72, respectively, as they would like to play more of a slow macro game.
