Let’s try this again. Week 3 is back again. How have things changed? Ohhhhhhhhhhhh how they’ve changed. We don’t have time for chitchat this week…….Except to say the last game from last week, which is a win for my team. The wise men have spoken, as has Tibbs.

Get Rich, Die Trying vs A Quiet Place 6PM Game:

 

“Game of the night alert”! The top two teams in my original rankings face off to start off the final week. A Quiet Place looked ooookkkk, against an undermanned We Fly High team, missing their two best players (Except now it’s the opposite, AQP is coming off their biggest win of the season). Their top two picks continue to look underwhelming, averaging under double digits combined so far. I expect that to change, because everyone hits their miracles on my team. Plus, these guys will be getting their captain back. (Civale has returned, with Leblanc and Koller starting to perform better).

 

As for my team, we took a bad loss last week. Two weeks in a row our offense has died down the stretch of games. Maybe we need to do a better job with subs? Or maybe we need better off the ball movement. Either way, this will be a good game to check out exactly what the problem might be. We need to do a better job of getting shots up and communicating on defense. I’m not worried though, because I can think of one major adjustment that will always be there, especially playoff time.

 

The Pollock/Leblanc match-up should be a good one, Weinstein/Alex, I’m looking forward to. I will say this though, no one will be underestimating Koloff, for this game. I see you out there Koloff and we’ll be getting a hand up on you buddy! (Still true) This is going to end up being a defensive battle in my mind and I think we have the better defense, with more answers on offense. Also, I still hold a grudge on Doherty, for getting hurt playing soccer and costing myself and Fermon a ship. How dare you sir! (Still very true)

 

Get Rich, Die Trying -4 over A Quiet Place

 

Del Boca Vista vs. Kawhi So Serious? 7pm Game:

 

I have some serious questions how KSS (Or I did in week 3 when I posted this), is going to match-up in this one. Obviously, I expect Newton to guard “C-League” Mazz, but then who is going to guard Lagno (Probably Cantoni)? Last week (Two weeks ago), these guys sent Ottomatic and Pranam go guard Lerner, so I don’t have a guess there. Maybe, Cantoni gets the assignment. I don’t know, but that leaves Frongi as well to guard. Although, is he really important? Time will tell.

 

On the other side of the floor, I expect DBV, to put Mirza right in the middle of the paint and tell him not to move on defense. McGirr and Wise will gladly launch their bodies in the paint for lay-up and O-board attempts, but Mirza should be able to snuff them out most of the game. KSS, is going to have make outside shots if they want to win this game and I don’t think they can.

 

I have (Had) DBV controlling this game from on the onset, but things have changed. Del Boca Vista, looks downright terrible and looking worse every week. They can clinch avoiding the 8th seed with a win or We Fly High loss, but I’m not sure they win this game. Newton, is going to be a problem for these guys and KSS, has a lot more energy, plus they get a lot of second chance opportunities and play harder. DBV, will need an above average Frongi performance.

 

Del Boca Vista -7 over Kawhi So Serious (New Line KSS -4.5 over Del Boca Vista)

 

Run N’ Shoot vs. Let’s Get Tropical 8pm Game:

 

Run N’ Shoot picked up a huge win last week, but lost Lerner to injury in the process. (Lerner is ok, thank God) Not a fair trade, since everyone makes the playoffs. I expect Lerner to be out again this week to get ready for Thursday (I still hope this), I mean to heal properly. If that’s the case, then hooooo boy, this one could get ugly fast. 

 

Let’s Get Tropical, performed exactly how I predicted they would with their top picks. (Then they fell apart faster than the 2020 Celtics) They suffocated the C-Leaguer and won with their defense. The offense did leave a lot to be desired though, especially from CAC’s newest assist hound, Filip, who hasn’t seen a 3 he didn’t like. This was obviously week 1 Cawley as well, because I didn’t see any patented eye rolls on his team’s bad offensive possessions. It will be interesting to see though how this offense progresses, because there appear to be a lot of guys who want to get their shot up. (Cawley, is now at point)

 

If Lerner isn’t there or even if he is, this is going to be an ass whooping. Run N’ Shoot’s defense is meh, to be kind. Their offense is also filled with guys who want to shoot now, shoot later, watch the other team fast break score off their miss. Cavano, will guard one of the Dwyer and Cawley combo. The other one should bring out their fork and get ready to eat. (Except that won’t happen) Dan, should also be ready to feast, because his man isn’t going to be able to guard him. I don’t have high hopes, Let’s Get Tropical is going to be prime for a big offensive game. I just don’t see where Run N’ Shoot is going to get the stops or any stops in this one. (I have higher hopes than I did before. Run N’ Shoot has looked a whole lot better, now that they realized Lerner is their best player. The same for the other guys with Cawley, with all things been evenish, I lean toward LGT).

 

Let’s Get Tropical -7.5 over Run N’ Shoot

 

Ghost Rider vs. We Fly High 9pm game:

 

Ghost Rider, comes in flying high (Not anymore, remove the pun) off their huge win for their injured teammate Ghost. A huge win for these guys, who were borderline contenders coming into the season. Their rookie looked a lot better last week, though the jury is still out on him. However, you have to love how this team of old guys is coming together (It was pretty, until Musse was gone). Good guard play, with lots of fight inside. They have moved themselves into contender status. As for, We Fly High, they’re in need of help. Pass more to AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMIR.

The question will be and probably for the rest of the season, will be if they can score enough. Etheridge, can’t afford 2-point games or two miss five thousand free throws. He’s going to have to be a beast. They have to pound the boards and create numerous second chances, then get out on the break and force teams to foul. They had a lot of foul complaints last week, but Etheridge and MacDonald weren’t there, those guys are the ones that force contact/fouls.

Ghost Rider is kind of reeling, having lost two games a in row. This going to be a tough game for them, even with WFH’s record being what it is. I think Etheridge and MacDonald are going to cause havoc on Ghost Rider’s defense. I think Sydorko, is going to lock Eusden up on defense, then the secondary guys are hit a 3 or two on WFH. This is going to be an upset baby! (I’ll stand by this prediction)

 

Ghost Rider -8.5 over We Fly High

Hard disagree on Get Rich getting a win for that, what lunacy.

 

Can’t wait to get the lead with 10 minutes left in the game, look at my watch, see 9:58 pm and hold the ball until 10pm when we have to leave.  Yeah we would get a win in that scenario.  See how stupid that sounds?

That’s not the same thing. You’re making a choice there, I didn’t choose to have the game end. In fact, I was the only one talking to the guy to try and keep it going.

Yes but it’s the same effect/result.  Are all games hard capped at 10pm now?  What’s to stop people from stalling with the ball this week if we are close to 10pm and force the other team to foul them?  Oh, maybe the custodian will let us play through this week? Maybe not? It’s arbitrary shit.  If you were on our end of it and it cost you seeding in the playoffs, I think you’d feel the same way.

It is what it is though.  I just cant wait to bring angry dickhead Jet to the playoffs.  Haven’t been this boned up since I got banged in the Franchise B Winter 2019 Auction.

I didn’t sign up to score three straight games, then have my game cut off with 8 minutes left. Nothing is stopping anyone from stalling and holding the ball, but the clock is going to be running, so why would you? They can do it in the 6, 7, or 8pm games too. I’m just gonna have to keep us on time. I don’t know which janitor we’re going to get on any given Tuesday. 

I lost a game earlier this season in a league, because the score was wrong. It sucked, I moved on. Whoever you play round 1 is going to be hard.

I feel you and for the record, I’m not blaming you at all for any of this Harold.  You didn’t put us in that position to have the game stopped. Your coverage and leadership is awesome.  I just won’t ever agree with that result of us taking a loss for that.

completely lost why the game wasnt ruled a tie.. you guys were +2 with 11 minutes to go (lead changed a few times with neither squad getting ahead by more then a basket or two), can understand the win being given if you had a double digit lead/etc but this wasnt the case. things were close for the first 31 minutes of play

none the less this isnt a harold problem (going to be impossible to call you anything but this going forward), its a tibbs problem.. thankful we scored the best coverage guy CAC has to offer, keep up the great work my man. its been a blessing all season

were missing our first round pick yet again,  seems fitting we end the season with yet another 9pm banger

A Quiet Place Makes loud Playoff Statement

I think I want to spend this write-up talking about how Mazz sucks. Maybe about how much I hate Civale after this game? Or maybe about Dan Clasby and Pranam, two unsung heroes? A Quiet Place had everyone for this game. My team was missing Pollock and Shaffer. TO THE SLAUGHTER

Soooooo, this fuckhead Mazz, tells everyone he’s out in our “staffing” group text. Naturally, Tibbs had no idea and this. time he appears to have been right. Therefore, I started the game at the scorers table, instead of ya know, playing in my teams game……Anyways, A Quiet Place got out to a hot start, taking advantage of the situation. They started the game on something of a 14-0 run I believe. Thankfully, unsung hero. number 1, Dan Clasby showed up and offered to score the game, so I could play. What a man! 

No stretch, no warm-up, no socks Harry, wasn’t the boost his team needed in this game. A Quiet Place continued to lock us up on the offensive end. Without Pollock or Joel there, the focus went to stopping Weinstein. I believe Koloff was on him, but I think they switched a couple times, to keep everyone fresh. Anyways, they did a good job limiting Weinstein. 

Offensively, A Quiet Place put together a good shooting night. Leblanc, Alex and Doherty all did a good job making us pay for leaving them open. They were moving the ball around nicely and did a great job scoring in transition. This the kind of big scoring outburst they needed going into the playoffs. The score was a lot to a little going into the second half.

My team went into some zone to start the second half and it wasn’t half bad actually. A Quiet Place, still doesn’t quite know how to work a zone offense. Only Leblanc. knows what the hell he’s doing, Koller still looks like a lost pup in them. It didn’t really matter though, because AQP kept getting out on the fast break and scoring that way. When they didn’t Doherty, got himself open from deep and connected.

Then we went to man for 5 minutes and I told my guys to play hard for this stretch of defense. It looked pretty good, that’s when Civale hit two threes right down my throat. I was closer to them than the sweat falling off his head and he stilled cashed them.  If Monday wasn’t a playoff game, I’d have this jerk guard the best player on the other team for 44 minutes.

As in any pick-up game, I called last team that scores win. We had the ball, Weinstein drove, pulled up for 2. SPLASH! WE WIN! Please, direct any questions on this win to my consultant, Amir Learner. 

Grades

Since, I gave AQP a team F in a game, I might as well give them a team A for making a statement in this game. They come out hard, kept the pressure on, blah blah blah….Nice game for them to go into the playoffs with, despite losing.

GRDT

I will take a team F, because my team wasn’t ready to play. Despite winning the game, we gave up a whole lot of points and couldn’t score many. I wouldn’t want to play us next week.

LGT gets third straight win going into the playoffs

Since the rediscovery of Michael Cawley, LGT has started to the right the ship. They won two in a row and were up against another team that has started to look a lot better, in Run N’ Shoot. Everyone was there for both teams. TO THE ACTION!

Shoutout to Sydorko, for filling in to do stats, while I ate my dinner. Let’s Get Tropical, stayed hot offensively to begin the game. Cawley, continued his good play, penetrating the lane and scoring inside. His scoring and passing opened up everyone else, with Manny hitting some threes and Dan hitting his jumper. This is a whole different team than the one that stunk up the building between weeks 3 and 6.

On the other end, Cavano, finally started to listen to my advice. At least a little bit, as he started shooting more threes and started dribbling less. Chris would hit six treys for the game and only committed three turnovers off his dribbles. Lerner, played his part as well, driving hard to the cup for buckets. Like Cawley for LGT, Lerner has found his footing for Run N’ Shoot.

It was a back and forth first half. Neither team seemed all that interested in playing defense. Both offenses moved the ball well and were getting the shots they wanted. LGT, went into the half up 38-33.

The second half was more of the same in this one. Usually, I have it marked where the stats come from in each half, but I didn’t tell Sydorko to make them, so whatevs. Filip, continued his good play in this half, recording 5 assists for the game, with two blocks and steals. Cawley, would get to the line seven times in this game, going 5 for 7, which is great for him. Let’s Get Tropical, had 16 team assists, which Tibbs would drool over and create a spreadsheet for. 

Run N’ Shoot would continue scoring with their top 3 picks, but the rest of the team couldn’t manage much in this high scoring affair. The 5 other guys on RNS, only managed 13 points total for the game. If your defense isn’t up to par, the offense better be getting help from everyone. 

LGT, was never really in danger of blowing this game. They had some stretches where they relaxed, as they tend to, but RNS couldn’t make any big dents in the lead. Eventually, we got to fouling time and that was all she wrote. 78-67 LGT.

Grades

Lerner B+: Solid Lerner game, he just has to be even better in the playoffs if they’re going to win.

Brandon O. B: Similar story here, not bad, but has to better to get wins.

Cavano A-: Great shooting, where’s my rebounds though?

Tom C+: Good job on the boards, one assist, but I need a bucket here.

Johnson C-: Off night from deep and that’s he brings is shooting.

Conor C: Off night as well, but he had some good boards and assists.

Sutton C+: Deferred a lot on offense, I’d like to see a tad bit more aggression.

Kola C: I’d like to see any aggression at all.

Let’s Get Tropical

Cawley A: Cawley is back baby! 

Filip A-: Another good performance, let’s see if it carries into the ship or he over plays his hand.

Djordje C: Djordje is kind of an after thought on this team.

Ian C: I need a playoff three from Ian. Just one, I’ll do anything.

Dwyer B+: Beast of a performance on the boards.

Manny B: Manny is like another version of Ghost.

Dan A+: Unsung Hero, did stats for two games and played pretty damn good as well.

Maz C: I feel like this kid can do something, but I haven’t seen it.

Ghost Rides the highest

We Fly High came into this game with a lot on the line. Since, Del Boca Vista, lost earlier in the night (spoiler alert!), they could slide into the 7th seed with a win. We Fly High, was without MacDonald and Mike B., of course. Ghost Rider, was missing Luther, Frank and of course, Musse. TO THE ACTION!

We Fly High, came out strong in this one, behind Etheridge’s 10 first half points. Etheridge, is a game changer out there and especially in these leagues, since he drives down the lane like a bowling ball. We Fly High, was doing a great job of moving the ball in this half. Half of the team had 2 or more assists and the team had 11 assists total in the first half. 

On the other side of the court, Ghost Rider, was struggling to get their offense going. Ghost, was the only one early on who could hit, which made sense, because he had the best match-up. I think Etheridge, should have been the one to guard him, but he didn’t. Ryan Shaffer, the other Shaffer as he’s known as, started to get hot once AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMIR entered the game. He a couple threes right into AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMIR’S perfect face. 

We Fly High, went into the half up 28-24. I thought they had a real chance of winning this game and avoiding their inevitable playoff fate in round 1. Ghost Rider, however had other plans. BACK TO ACTION!

The second half would belong to the Ghost Rider offense. They started getting out on the break and swinging the ball around, all around the We Fly High defense. Like WFH, in the first half, Ghost Rider started racking up the assists. Four of the five guys on Ghost Rider, had 2 or more second half assists, including Sheff, who had 6!  He also had 10 second half points, big second half for the captain. The Ghost Rider offense was onnnnnnnnnn fiiiiiiiiiiiire this half.

We Fly High, on the other hand, just couldn’t keep up with that kind of offensive output. Andre Jones, was impressive though, leading his team with 7 assists on the game. Sydorko, tried to keep his team in the game, scoring 10 second half points. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMIR, even connected from deep, but they just couldn’t keep up. 

We Fly High’s 7th seed playoff chances flew out the window. Ghost Rider, cruised to a 70-53 victory to closed out the regular season.

Grades

Eusden B-: He ended up with the right numbers, but he sucked in the first half.

Ghost A: Monster game for someone who rebounds worse than someone 3 inches shorter than him (that’s me).

Shaffer A:  Very good game from Ryan, who abused AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMIR all night.

Sheff B+: Big second half, but finished the game 0fer from deep.

Lindsay B-: Three assists good, would like to see more than 2 shot attempts in a game like this.

We Fly High:

Jet C+: The Jet had trouble taking off in this one, credit the other team’s defense.

Sydorko B-: Solid, but not spectacular.

Etheridge B+: Faded late, but played well overall. 

Agresti C+: Did what he could out there, they just need more.

Jones A: 7 assists, with 8 rebounds and a couple steals a great day at the office, if you’re suppose to be the 4th or 5th guy.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMIR C+: Get toasted my Ryan, but had a three, with a couple dimes.

No Mazz, same results

Del Boca Vista, came into this game fading faster than the Afghanistan government (too soon?). They would be without Mazz and Zukic for this game, which didn’t help the cause. Kawhi So Serious, would get back the newly crowned DPOY and add some red headed kid, whose too good to fill in. They were missing McGirr, Wise, Ralph and OTTOMATIC. TO THE ACTION:

Lagno tried to come out hot, for his depleted team. He would hit three treys in the first half, along with three assists. It also looked like he was trying to grow a mustache (more on this as it develops). Frongi, showed some signs of life as well, including making a lay-up or two (after missing three in a row). Frongi, was also playing the middle of the zone on defense, which is funny, because I’m almost positive that’s never happened before.

For KSS, Newton, came out hot, after sitting a week out. He was slicing through the zone with the QB precision of 2004 Madden, Peyton Manning. Newton, is very quick and the handles are tight. Plus, with no bigs to finish over, it made scoring inside easier. Newton, also had 5 seals in the half. Abreu, did his first half thing, where he bulldozes to the rim at will for hard lay-ups off the glass. It looks like he’s trying to pelt someone behind the back door on every attempt. Speaking of pelting, Cantoni pelted a million bricks off the rim for 3 in this half and the whole game. He actually thought it might be a record, but he’s never met Fermon or Hof.

KSS, went into the half up 31-23. It wasn’t a bad half for Del Boca Vista, despite how undermanned they were. They had a shot to do something in the second half and maybe pull through.

The wheels started to fall off a bit for DBV, in the second half. Butterworth, actually picked up a technical foul. Although, you wouldn’t have known it, because the ref told me nothing. Luckily, my assistant Dan Clasby, informed me of the technical. I think it happened, because someone caused Butterworth to travel off a rebound. I thought it was a foul, no clue what Butterworth said to get a technical either. Pranam, promptly went to the line and bricked both, because he didn’t agree with the call either (maybe). 

Speaking of Pranam, for some reason he was tasked with guarding Lagno. That was pretty interesting, considering Lagno was the main offensive threat on DBV. Which the box score can attest to, with him scoring 23 points. Cantoni, continued to throw up 3-point brick after 3-point brick. The red headed kid, stayed consistent though, scoring 10 second half points, 17 for the game.

The funniest moment of the game was when KSS had the ball and Lagno stopped playing defense to run to half court and explain how he was fouled to Marlin on the previous play. Just abandoned his team’s defense to argue at half court as play continued, hilarious stuff. Anyways, KSS, would put the game away at the line. DBV, didn’t have the fire power to score multiple times in a row and make the game interesting. 62-54 Final KSS.

Grades

Frongi B: This was a better performance from young Nicholas, who needs to play similar to this next week, when his full team is there.

Muccio C+: Not bad, but they needed him to be way more aggressive this week.

Christian B+: One of Christian’s best games this season.

Lagno B-: Did what he could offensively, but gets dock for abandoning his team to argue a call. 

Butterworth C+: I thought he played well, I don’t know what he said to get T’ed up, but that’s not good.

KSS

Abreu B: He played good, but I think he’s missed like over 10 threes in a row.

Pranam B-: Pranam missing all his 3s and still getting to 10 points is pretty impressive.

Newton B: He played good, but he’s caught the 3-point bug from Abreu.

Cantoni D+: If you’re taking 20 treys you better be the team’s first round pick or Dame Dolla.

I know there are children on this board, so I won’t post what I said. But i do want to state publicly for the record, that I wish the refs in this particular league would at least try to give two shits. I’ve been overall fairly impresssed by the quality/effort of refs in CAC, but I can’t say the same for the refs in this Tuesday night league. On this particular play, I went straight up for a clean rebound and got completely undercut at the knees + ankles, causing me to fall. Not malicious, but 100% not a safe play, especially on this court. Ref had perfect angle. Called travel. Just terrible on all levels.
