|Remember Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey from Saturday Night Live? Well, here's the Bay Area dreamleague's weekly version: Cheep Thoughts. A collection of my thoughts on each game as I go thru the scoresheets and post scores on the website. One-plus minute per game multipled by about 45-50 games and I can knock this beast out in an hour -- yeah right, it always ends up being double. The idea here is that I do not spend hours upon hours of time coming up with game articles...|
REC: MSG upset the SF Warriors, 48-40. Will Cheung overcame an 0-for-5 start to finish with 17 points. Russell Lew added 10 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 steals. Joel Villareal and Chris Moreno had 11 points apiece for MSG... Previously, the SF Warriors disposed of the low-seeded Triple Singles, 47-24. Balanced scoring throughout as Joel Villareal scored 10 points... It was over by the 2nd half as Highlife squashed Faded, 53-21. Faded asked a poignant question in why we don't re-seed at certain points in the playoffs, since #11 MSG would have had to face the train that is Highlife. The answer is, we typically do not re-seed in the Winners Bracket, since things sort of eventually fall back down anyways to the Losers Bracket, where we do indeed re-seed. So eventually, that regular season record is gonna have a bearing on you, unless you do make it thru the Winners Bracket unscathed. Btw, Derek Lau led once again with 18 points... Dunjoz eliminated Still Balling with a 63-43 rout. Brandon Chu busted out with 25 points and 8 rebounds. JB Milan led Still Balling with 17, while Roland Bautista added 11 points, 11 rebounds... Technics survived shooting woes from Sean Rivera, who went 3-for-14, to hold off WWWD, 49-43. Mike Tangi came alive in the 4th quarter to scored 7 of his 9 points, to go along with 13 total rebounds, overcoming a 36-38 deficit heading into the final frame. Technics held WWWD to just 5 points in the 4th. Interestingly, Todd Kozuki, who had scored 18 points through three quarters, got no shot attempts in the 4th (nor in the 1st). Instead, the statsheet shows Maulimu Collins finishing with just 10 points on 5-for-14 shooting and Fred Cheng hoisting up bricks with 5 straight missed shots to end the game, 1-for-10 overall... Bay Function continued its roll with a 48-44 defeat of the Oakland Warriors. Greg Hom did some damage in the 3rd quarter, scoring 14 of his 21 points while helping Bay Function outscore the Warriors 18-3. This erased a halftime deficit of 15-25. The Warriors wasted a superb output by Pete Chong, who went 9-for-13 to tally 27 points. Low Saechin added 17-and-12 for the victorious Bay Function.
