INDIANAPOLIS – Pacers Gaming moved to a 4-0 in group play Wednesday night with an impressive 3-0 sweep of the Ankle Breakers in the second week of remote group play in the NBA 2K League 3v3 THE SWITCH OPEN Tournament. The Pacers will be looking to garner a spot in next week’s in-person bracket play at the Pavilion at Pan Am in downtown Indianapolis with two more games this week (Thursday at 7 PM vs. Mavs Gaming and Friday at 9 PM vs. Jazz Gaming). Two more victories would not only secure a position in Indy next week but give the Blue & Gold a first-round bye.
Veteran Pacers Gaming forward WoLF (Bryant Colon), who was a combined 15-18 from the field in Wednesday’s three games, got off to a great start in Game 1 leading the Pacers with a season-high 15 points (six-of-six shooting) in the 21-7 thrashing. REIZEY (Reid Hill) enjoyed 3V3 career highs in points (six) and assists (six).
WoLF was again the leading scorer in Game 2, a 22-10 triumph, with 13 points and a team-high six rebounds. VANDI (Zach Vandivier) added six tallies and five assists while defensive stalwart JOMAR (Jomar Varela-Escapa) had three points, two rebounds, an assist and three steals in the contest (winner is first team to reach 21 points, winning by two).
Indiana completed the sweep with another impressive 22-10 victory in Game 3 as VANDI led the way with 11 points and three assists. WoLF scored six and pulled down a season-high six rebounds. JOMAR added five points, two rebounds, a team-high four assists and a season-high four steals.
