    Kawhi So Serious? 69 Get Rich, Die Trying 57

    With no rest for the weary, we kicked off the Fall 2021 5v5 Draft West Finals mere minutes after the second semi-final game concluded. Right after tip you'd have thought Get Rich was the team that had earned the hour break instead of Kawhi. Joel Shaffer (15 points, 6 boards, 3 assists) was flying down the floor at every opportunity. He scored all of his points in the first half, but even more impressively, every two point bucket came as a result of him just sprinting down the floor and beating everyone to the hoop. I am very excited for Keith's highlight montage of Joel all alone hitting lay-ups, each one progressively adding a little more flare until he's simply trying to jumpman by the 6th one

    A game after terrorizing Del Boca Vista on the offensive glass, Kawhi was kept in check for most of this one. Evan Kodra (6 points, 4 blocks, 10 boards) did everything he could to keep Kawhi's big bodies off the glass. Since they only had 5 O boards in the first half, their offense predictably struggled. 

    Well, James Cantoni (12 points, 4-8 3s) didn't struggle. Like last season he had a cheering section for the finals. Unlike last season's finals he was hitting 3s in bunches. The more pressure Get Rich put on him the further back he simply stepped. The reason this wasn't a complete blowout in the first half was because Cantoni kept it close.

    But for the second game in a row the Get Rich offense was a well oiled-machine. Sam Pollock (16 points, 4 assists) made sure everyone ate. Raphael Martins (2 points, 5 boards, 2 assists) picked up where he left off in the semis and added a couple more jaw dropping dimes. Everyone shared the ball, everyone was capable of putting it in the hoop and they recorded their second straight game with 20 assists. A 40-26 lead at halftime was never threatened.

    After a lights out first half it's a question best reserved for this generations finest philospohers as to why Cantoni only attempted one shot from downtown in the second. But while I can't answer it, I know that most of these Kawhi Guys will be back in the Fall season to try to fight their way back to another title. 

    But the Summer season belonged to Get Rich, Die Trying. Congrats on a great run boys!
