Fall 2013: B Draft League Champs: BangBros

    Bang Bros come from behind in second half win title thanks to Barretts 24 point second half
    Bang Bros 54 Victoire Sucree! 43

    Welcome to the F13 B Draft West Title Game write-up! As you all know, the game was between the #2 Bang Bros, versus the #4 seed Victorie Sucree. For this write-up, I decided to include the tweets that I sent out throughout the game, and write what happened in the game between tweets. I know, crazy concept. Let’s dive right into what went down this past Thursday.


    - @MattBelliveau has just arrived. #TitleOrBust


    -Matty Bells arrived three or four minutes before the game started, which made sense, because the 8:30 PM tip-off was his idea. One person impacted the time this game started - I’ve been an employee of the CAC for over two years now, and I don’t have that kind of power.  


    - Captain @hlebov303 and Izzy Feliz played pick up before. Might be a mistake.


    -When I made my way up to the balcony around 8:10-8:15, I noticed Izzy and Harry were playing at an insanely high level for a pick-up game...RIGHT BEFORE THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME!!! Seriously, Izzy attempted a 360 layup, Harry dove for a loose ball, stuff like that. Chris Swanson and I questioned their thought process going into the game, but then again, I finished the season 2-8. What do I know?


    - Matt Kap back-to-back 3s!!! 8-6 VS #BDraftWest


    -Aziz and Izzy scored the first two buckets of this game, giving BB an early 4-0 lead. Chas Bells looked to build some momentum for VS, but ended up getting his shot swatted by Izzy into the wall. Luckily for him, Kap started off well, and made his first two 3 point attempts.  


    - 12-8 VS…Kap has 8 points at the first timeout. #BDraftWest


    -Kap was playing well on both ends of the floor at this point, but Aziz and his Eurostep would not be denied. Several possessions later, BB tied it up at 12-12, thanks to...an Aziz Eurostep layup!


    - 24-16 with 7 left in the 1st half. KAP with 20 points. #NotAMisprint


    -Kap with a three and a layup to make it 15-12, and then 17-12, in favor of Victorie Sucree. He had 15 points at this point! Just when I got done writing a note on the stat sheet marking his layup, he hit his fourth three of the night. That forced me to tweet out the insane-ness that was Matt Kaplan’s first 13 minutes of the game.


    -Immediately after I sent out this tweet, Matty Bells found a cutting Chris Swanson, and Swannie finished at the hoop to give VS a double digit lead. Marcel had one made field goal at this time of the game, yet they were up 10. Bad sign for Bang Bros.


    - 29-20 3 mins left in 1st. Kap with 23, Barrett with 4.


    -Kap just hit a ridiculously tough layup over Izzy. I PROMISE the Kapsturbation will end right now, because...he didn’t score the rest of the game after that. Spoiler alert!


    - 31-21 VS at the break. Kap MIGHT just be a legend. Goddamnit. 23 off 4-for-5 from 3 shooting!


    -At halftime, Bang Bros were down ten, and captain Harry Lebov was clearly in a panic. I would be too if I were in that position...Josh and Aziz combined for an inefficient 11 points, and they were down big, even though they had accomplished their biggest goal, which was to keep Marcel in check.


    - Marcel and Josh with 4 and 5 points, respectively.


    -Ladies and gentlemen, two of your top three picks this past season!


    -Noah tweeted right after I sent this one out: “What kind of live betting can I get on this right now?” He knew BB was going to rally back...why didn’t I know?


    - 9-0 run by BB makes it 33-32 VS. Joshhhhh!!!


    -VS started the half by giving Marcel the ball (never a bad idea) on the baseline, and he converted one of those tough, turnaround jumpers that are virtually impossible to defend. Now down 33-23, here are what my notes look like:


    -Yanni layup off a nice pass from Izzy

    -HUGE Josh Barrett three

    -Yanni layup

    -Josh Barrett layup plus the foul, 36-33 Bang Bros (13-0 run now!!!)

    -Josh bucket and...Josh layup


    -Uhh, did Josh Barrett just lead BB on a 17-0 run in a title game? Where is Matt Kaplan this half? Where is Tyler Smith this game? THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN TO MATTY BELLS, GODDAMNIT!!!


    - 40-37 Bang bros, they\'re on a 17-4 run


    -Victorie Sucree actually went on an 8-0 run, led by Marcel to give VS a one point lead again, 41-40. Any ideas as to what happened next? C’mon, anything? I’ll give you another second…


    -Another Josh Barrett three to give Bang Bros a 43-41 lead, and that proved to be the final nail in the coffin for BB. As you can tell by next tweet, they only scored one more bucket the rest of the way - a Chas Bells jumper with his toe on the three point line.


    - 51-43 Bang Bros!!! 59.6 seconds!!!!


    - 54-43 Bang Bros!!! Final! Josh with 24 second half points, @KapMatt …none


    -Post game, Matty Bells and co. were crushed. Tyler Smith discussed never touching a basketball again, and even blamed me for his performance. Kap just looked sad. Marcel left the gym before I could get word from him. Swannie was still thinking about his layup.


    As for Bang Bros, I had the pleasure of being that guy that takes the photo of the winning team. I almost puked on the court.
