INDIANAPOLIS – The NBA 2K League announced this afternoon that rookie point guard 630 (Xavier Barraza) of Pacers Gaming was named as the league’s Week 4 Player of The Week. Barraza, a native of Chicago, Ill., averaged 33.8 points and ten assists during the 3-1 week for Indiana. In addition, he set a team record with 48 points in a blowout, 40-point win over Lakers Gaming last Friday. Pacers Gaming is off to the best start in its history with a 11-3 regular-season mark, led by the rookie from Illinois who chose “630” as his gamertag as a tribute to his hometown area code. Already in his young career with Indiana he owns 13 of the top 19 highest-scoring games in team history; has twice tied the team record (nine) for most 3-pointers made in a game; and set the record (17) for most field goals made in a contest.
Coach Cody Parrent’s Pacers Gaming team will play two doubleheaders this week: Pistons GT on Thursday and Jazz Gaming on Saturday.
