Indianapolis Wins Red Bull Midnight Run (PHOTOS)

by January 13, 2014


Over the past seven or so months, Red Bull hit up nine cities—Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia and Washington, DC—culling a team of ballers from each city and bringing them to Brooklyn, where last Thursday and Friday the groups competed in the Red Bull Midnight Run, a competition designed to figure out which metropolis has the best streetball scene. On Thursday, a tournament whittled the grouped down to four—NY, Indy, Philly and Atlanta—and Friday night, minutes after the Brooklyn Nets defeated the Miami Heat on their home floor, the remaining squads took to the court at the Barclays Center for the finale.

New York and Indianapolis both advanced to the finals, with Indy taking home the championship after defeating NY by a tight score of 43-41. Check out a gallery of photos from the hard-fought Midnight Run above.
