Week 8: Pacers Gaming vs Grizz Gaming

By NBA 2K League

Pacers Gaming improves to 6-4 with a big 69-59 win over Grizz Gaming (4-6) on Friday during Week 8 of the NBA 2K League.

Swizurk provided solid ball-handling from the point guard position and remains a lethal shooter scoring 10 points. Man_In_A_Car warmed up after a quiet first half and scorched the Grizz for 20 points on seven-of-11 shooting, making six-of-10 three point attempts. Ramo and Lord Beezus starred at power forward and center. Ramo was loud and energetic all over the court, finishing with 20 points, five rebounds, eight assists and three steals and served to emotionally charge up his teammates. Lord Beezus contributed a 13-point, 10-rebound double-double with plenty of offensive rebounds that gave the Pacers an extra offensive edge to go along with its well-respected defense. This Pacers lineup might be best we’ve ever seen, and they aren’t afraid to tell other teams themselves.

Grizz Gaming, meanwhile, drop to 15th in the league in somewhat disappointing fashion. Jayrod struggled the most against the Pacers defense, scoring only three points on one-of-eight shooting, one-of-six from downtown. Vandi did his best to make up for the lack of firepower, scoring 20 points of his own, but his six turnovers hurt the Grizz seeing as the Pacers only committed seven turnovers as a team. AuthenticAfrican looked like his consistently good self, notching a 16-point, 12-point double-double. Pacers Gaming is certainly a formidable opponent at sixth in the standings.

Pacers Gaming is back in action next Thursday in THE TICKET tournament versus Hawks Talon GC at 8:00 PM/ET on https://www.twitch.tv/nba2kleague and https://www.youtube.com/nba2kleague.
