    Pre-Game:              

    Coming into this game I saw Kaptain America (KA) as the favorites. This was the finals so No Goodnight Moon Night (NGMN) obviously had a chance in this game. NGMN was missing 1 guy while KA had their entire team.

    First Half:                                                                                      

    With 10 minutes left in the half the game was tied at 12. 3 minutes later KA was forced to take a timeout now down 22-13. As the half continued the score continued to become more and more lopsided as NGMN was up 43-26 at the half.

    Halftime Stats:

    Amir Learner 3 pts, 1-1 from three, 1 foul

    Carlos Rivadinero 0-4 from three, 1 oreb, 4 drebs, 1 ast and 1 foul

    Chris Northrop 2 pts, 0-1 from three, 1 dreb

    Dave Murdoch no stats

    Jon Mazzone 11 pts, 2-5 from three, 5-7 from the free throw line, 1 blk, 1 dreb

    Matt Kaplan 14 pts, 2-4 from three, 2-2 from the free throw line, 1 stl, 1 dreb and 3 asts

    Cheese 4 pts, 6 asts

    Dustin Williams 9 pts, 1-1 from three, 2 drebs and 1 ast

    John Robberson 12 pts, 2-5 from three, 2 drebs and 1 ast

    Lee Eudy 11 pts, 3-5 from three, 1 stl, 1 oreb, 8 dreb and 2 asts

    Ron Kindle 7 pts, 1-2 from three, 4 dreb and 4 asts

    Player of the Half:

    Lee Eudy

    Second Half:

    With it being the finals I really was hoping for KA to make a run and change the game. It just didn’t happen, what did happen is John Robberson putting on a three point shooting clinic. At one point he hit 5 straight and a bunch of long 2s. This offensive display really put the game out of reach and securing the title for NGMN 80-57.

    Player of the Game:

    John Robberson those who were there really witnessed a great offensive game that probably wasn’t expected going into this game.

    Grades:

    Amir Leaner B shot a good percentage from three but was unable to do much else.

    Carloss Rivadinero C- I could probably grade lower based on the fact he didn’t score and went 0fer from three but in reality. He only took a couple of bad shots and did get some other stats.

    Chris Northrop C he scored some baskets but overall I wasn’t that impressed with his performance.

    Dave Murdoch C- I expected more so I have to grade him this low. To be fair he probably didn’t play that much anyway but I know he can play better.

    Jon Mazzone B- he scored but overall just didn’t have a Mazzone type performance.

    Matt Kaplan B+ was the best player for his team but scary thing is they needed more from him but as one guy you can only do so much. If his team wins he obviously gets a higher grade.

    Cheese A came off the bench and literally played a perfect game.

    Dustin Williams A+ was great played well didn’t force anything and gave his team exactly what was needed and at the right time.

    John Robberson A+ shot the shit out of the basketball.

    Lee Eudy A+ did it all to help his team win and secure his second title in this league in as many seasons.

    Ron Kindle A- only docking his grade for his three point shooting and the fact that I know he can play better. Still he played smart and helped his team win this game.

    Takeaways:

    Tough loss for KA as they were the 1 seed but hopefully all the guys on this team return to play next season.

    NGMN had a really impressive playoff run which in the end resulted in a championship. Congrats to all those guys and hopefully they come back for more next season.
