Game 1 – Celtics 42, Kings 41

  The Celts & Kings were in a close contest to start the weekend – Back n Forth to the delight of the coaches – but the Black attack couldn’t pull off another buzzer-beater this time, sadly. O. Ruan did most of the damage by scoring 24 of their points as well as connecting on seven three-pointers. The Kings’ B. McMahon had a team high 20 and did all he could as his supporting cast did their best & filled in nicely but just fell short. The final quarter was what did them in – by an 11-7 margin.

Game 2 – Lakers 2, Sixers 0

  Purple n Gold for the Win as the Crimson, once again, failed to field enough players by game time, sadly, on the day they unveiled their 2022 Championship Banner.

Game 1 – Celtics 47, Bullets 42

  The luck of the Irish came true as St. Patty’s approaches, as the Celtics solved the riddle of The Bullets & ruined their perfect season. O. Ruan led the way again; he dropped a weekend high of 25 en route to the unexpected victory & a major confidence booster as we approach the end of the regular season soon. Bullets L. Guertin (21) and B. Biscan (10) chipped in, but it was time for that inevitable loss before the Madness.

Game 2 – Kings 38, Lakers 30

  The Kings had six players this game & they all scored but it was Z. Pierre who lit up the fourth quarter for his squad by scoring 10 of his game-high 16 as the Kings got a much-needed win after a tough loss yesterday. After a poor first half – being outscored by a 15-6 margin – the Purple n Gold spread out the scoring, as all seven of their players got on the board, but they were led by A. Mallah with 11.
