Week 5: Doubleheader vs Heat Check & Kings Guard

Pacers Gaming took on Kings Guard Gaming and Heat Check Gaming in a Wednesday doubleheader, finishing 1-1 and moving to 5-1 overall.

In the first matchup against Kings Guard Gaming, Pacers failed to contain Bp as the point guard went off for 41 points, hitting 11/15 three point shots. Swizurk came alive in the second half, finishing with 28 points and 6 assists, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Kings Guard offense. Pacers Gaming dropped their first game of the season, 81-61.

In Game 2 on the night, Pacers Gaming bounced back in impressive fashion Wednesday with a 82-66 victory over Heat Check Gaming.

This was wire-to-wire domination for Pacers Gaming (5-1). Heat Check Gaming (4-3) jumped out to an early 5-0 lead, as Pacers Gaming couldn’t find the basket over the first two minutes. That problem, however, did not last long, as star small forward Swizurk opened up the scoring and quickly rattled off a 14-4 run.

After holding a narrow four-point lead at the end of the first quarter, Pacers Gaming just continued to pour it on, and while their offense was remarkably efficient, it started on the defensive end. Pacers Gaming had Heat Check flustered and turned them over 10 times in the first half, which led to fast break after fast break.

After entering halftime with a 12-point lead, Pacers Gaming continued to force turnovers, and as a result, their lead continued to grow. In the end, Heat Check turned the ball over a staggering 22 times and Pacers Gaming built their lead up to as much as 30 points in the second half.

Every player managed to score in double figures for Pacers Gaming on Wednesday, with Swizurk leading with way with a game-high 24 points on 8-of-14 shooting. Point guard Matty and power forward Lord Beezus each dropped 16 points, while center Ramo had yet another terrific all-around game with 12 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, six steals and a pair of blocks.
