SEASON 13 – game 1

After a month of preseason practices and games yesterday we kicked off the season. Playing against a very young and athletic team we jumped on them early (12-2 after 1:30) we never looked back and won 88-70. At 35 and one the oldest players in the league I am still having fun playing the game. I finished with 23 points and 7 rebounds…

0-2 SEASON IS OVER

Last night our season ended with 102-71 blowout. As I said in a previous post this was the best team in the league and they showed it. They were up at halftime 42-39 and in the 3rd quarter they absolutely destroyed us. They outscored us 33-11 and the game was over from that point. I finished with 26 points 5 rebounds and 2 steals. Now with the season over its time to get ready for next season the work is never over.

My stats for the season: 17.3 points 6.7 rebounds 3 assists 1.3 steals 1.7 turnovers per game. 53% from the field 43% from 3 and 86% from the free throw line.

18-12 PLAYOFF TIME

As of two weeks ago we needed 1 win to clinch a playoff spot. With 2 games left and all we needed was just 1 win I thought for sure it would be no problem. We lost the last 2 games of the regular season 88-83 and 91-83. Our season finale was on Friday and the team that was tied with us in the loss column didn’t play until Saturday. See the team that was tied with us, if they would have won we were out of the playoffs and with a loss we were in. So a couple of guys on my team went to the game and they were sending updates every 5 minutes. It is completely nerve racking getting score updates via whats app. In the end the team we needed to lose, lost we backed our  way into the playoffs. We arrive in the playoffs on a 2 game losing streak playing the most talented team in the league that swept us in the regular season: 89-62 and 88-83 (yes the same team that beat us 2 weeks ago). So we have our work cut out for us. WIN OR GO HOME

18-10

With 2 games left in the regular season and we are currently in 5th place(top 6 make the playoffs). The next 2 games are vital we win both we are in, if we split the next two we will need a team behind us in the standings to drop a game. Our past 2 games we won 84-75 and 108-85 I finished with 29 points 8 rebounds 4 assists 1 steal and 20 points 4 rebounds 3 assists and 3 steals. I am Looking forward to the next two games…….

16-10

This past week we had 3 games in 6 days. As a player this is the type of schedule that you love, a lot of games. We played the same team back to back games winning both 88-74 and 101-87. I finished with 11 points 3 rebounds 2 assists 2 steals and the 2nd game my stats were: 16 points 7 rebounds and 4 assists. The 3rd game was the big problem after leading the whole game they take the in the 4th quarter. The game goes back and forth the entire 4th and with 36 seconds left we take the lead by 1. Their point guard hits a difficult left hand runner with 10 seconds to go and we go down and miss a 10 foot shot and we are forced to foul and we end up going down 75-71. In the middle of us fighting for a playoff spot we lose to a team coming into the game with a record of 5-19, unacceptable. We are in 5th place now (top 6 make the playoffs) with 4 games to go WE NEED ALL 4. Stats from last game 22 points 8 rebounds 4 assists and 4 steals.

13-9

We dropped 2 of our last 3 games. WE are currently in 7th place with the top 6 teams making the playoffs. The 2 games we lost were to the 4th place team on the road and to the 5th place team at home but our last game we beat the 2nd place team at home. With 8 games to go we still have a strong chance of making the place because we only play 2 teams with a winning record. My stats for the last 3 games: 16 points 9 rebounds 3 asst 1 steal; 6 points 6 rebounds 3 asst 2 steals; and 16 points 8 rebounds 6 asst 1 steal…..

We are still in 6th place, and the top 6 teams make the playoffs…..
