It was quite a week for Celtics Crossover Gaming point guard oFab. The former No. 2 overall pick led Boston to its first win of the season, sweeping Pacers Gaming on Friday evening.
To cap things off, Fab earned week nine’s Player of the Week honors after averaging an impressive 43 points and 12 assists per game against the Pacers (the Celtics also took game one against Cavs Legion GC, but the series was postponed midway through due to connectivity issues).
