Winter 2009: B2 League Champs: Genzyme

    Lucky 7 - Abusement Park Cruises to East Finals
    Balco 38 The Abusement Park 55

    Without the Big Tuna to save them, I knew that Balco would be in trouble in this one.  Sure, M3 is always supremely confident in his squad's abilities, especially after the show that the Deft Lefty put on in the 3v3 tournament, but I knew the jig was up.  I thought that the only way that Balco had a shot in this one was if Gill went down low and just abused the combo of Gelow and Brown, getting them sent to the bench early with foul trouble.  Well, for half the game, it didn't matter, as Balco trailed by a point at the break, Gelow was in serious foul trouble (4), and M3 contributed in a big way (all 7 of his points).  Needless to say, I was a tad surprised, but the team game was working, Gregory had 12 points, but seemed to have plenty of energy for the second half and ammo left in that left hand of his.

    But after the break, it was a different story.  MadDog Tino (11 points, 5 steals) came alive, Jesse show what Brown can do for AP, and the D really clamped down.  I mean, this thing was still a game with 10 minutes to go, as the Park was up just four points. But it was like a flip was switched after that.  Matty O became the Unstoppable Force

    No, that is Not the item in World of Warcraft, and no, I've never played the damn game, it was just a lucky guess.

    Ok, I lied on all 3 of those counts.

    But anyway, the Abusement Park went on a 16-3 run over the last 10 minutes of the game to put this one in the bag and cruise onto the East finals for a rematch with Genzyme.  That's right, the same team they were leading at half time a couple weeks ago before bowing to their undefeated rule.  I think you know who I'll be ruling for, yes?
