Malden Neighborhood Basketball League:
RESULTS – WEEK 7
Saturday, Feb. 17
Game 1 – Celtics 57, Sixers 48
We opened the weekend with the Celts jumpin’ out early after one. Led by M. Preziosa with 17 and A. Volmar with 12, the Sixers did come back in the 2nd and kept it close, thanks to a strong game from J. Regis with his game-high 22; but a 10 point lead going into the 4th was a bit too much to come back from for the Crimson. A Celtic win next Saturday locks them in the madness.
Game 2 – Hawks 80, Pistons 46
The Hawks beat up an undermanned Piston squad, behind a career-best game from A. Alterio (28) and an also impressive out from R. Cole (21), L. Walker (12) and W. Richard (11). The four-man squad on the other end of the court showcased the game-high 29 from M. Tafese as well as 12 more from J. Azemard.
Game 3 – Lakers 53, Kings 51 OT
Rivalry at its finest takes it to an extra frame, as the purple & gold outlasted the black n’ white, thanks to B. Stickney (23) and R. Moore (20) leading the way in OT. M. Cherif had a big game for the Kings behind the arch with 7 ending with a team-high 23. T. Germain chipped in with 12 in this tough loss.
Game 1 – Celtics 71, Bullets 49
The Emerald jumped into a tie for 1st place as we get close to the end. M. Preziosa & S. Cherefant led their squad with 22 each; N. Daniel added 10 in the win. For the Bullets it was A. Mutebi once again leading the way with a game-high 24 and A. Jonassaint with 11 en route to a big loss, but they remain in 3rd place as we creep closer to the madness.
Game 2 – Sonics 57, Pistons 51
With this win the Sonics actually helped the Hawks lock a playoff spot in this year’s madness. X. Sorrano woke up with 24, and last year’s Rookie of the Year, J. Montiero, added 15 for their 3rd win on the season. A game-high 35 from M. Tafese didn’t help the teamwork and atmosphere for the five-man squad who had themselves a tough weekend, player-wise.
Game 3 – Sixers 55, Kings 33
The Crimson went up 20 at the half and got a much-needed victory to keep themselves within a sniff of 4th place behind J. Regis (21) and U. LeBron (18), who stayed consistent throughout the game. The Kings came out very slow in the 1st half by scoring just 5 each in the first two quarters and were led by Big Walt – W. Annaletto with 13 and W. Etienne with 12. How the almighty have fallen.
