Four teams dished it out today in the semi finals of the Pro-AM League at the Fonde Recreation Center. With a big shiny trophy at stake and most importantly a year’s worth of bragging rights on the line, all the teams came out firing tonight.
The first game was between Showtime Ballers and Moses Malone. Moochie Norris who previously played 6 seasons with the Houston Rockets in the NBA was present in tonight’s lineup for the Showtime Ballers. While age has caught up with the former pro player it was evident early on that he still had the court vision to make several key assists to help the team although seemed to have gotten injured towards the end and sat out the remainder of the game sometime during the 3rd quarter.
The game was close through out all the quarters, but team Moses Malone seemed frustrated as every time they would score a bucket Showtime Ballers would come back and score.
In the last remaining 5 minutes of the game Showtime Ballers starting getting a small lead, with desperation team Moses Malone started committing turn overs and had to resort to fouls. The game would finish 72 to 64 with Showtime Ballers winning the game and advancing to the finals.
The second semi final was between Competitive Choice and Catch me if you can (CMIYC). Both teams got off to a shaky start in the first couple of minutes but Competitive Choice went on a 15-0 run and it seemed as the other team wasn’t ready for such aggressive play. In the second half it didn’t look as CMIYC brought their best game and they fell into 20 point deficit, it looked like they had forgotten that they were playing in the playoffs. The game ended 68 to 50.
So the final is set for this upcoming Monday at 8pm. It’s going to be an exciting match to watch and it’s really hard to predict which team will win. Competitive Choice seems to have an edge when it comes to speed while I think Showtime Ballers has an advantage when it comes to height. I definitely don’t want to jinx either team so I won’t put my prediction out there.
Do not miss out on an opportunity to watch this game as Jaye Valentine will perform during half time and sing the national anthem before tip off and best of all, FOR FREE !! See everyone there.
