Semi-finals game 1
Good afternoon. I got in this morning around 7:00am from our road trip in Cholet where we played our first game of the semi-finals. It was an unbelievable game from start to finish. We ended up winning 70-68 in OT. Both teams played extremely intense and it got to the point where there were 3 intentional fouls called and some technical fouls. The emotions were running high from the start of the game to the finish. They missed a shot at the end of regulation for the win which lead to 5 minutes of OT. It was a tied game 68-68 with 34 seconds to go. We got the ball inbounds to our 2 guard Yannick Bokolo and he dribbled it across half court and handed it off to me. We ended up clearing out the lane with 6 seconds to go on the shot clock and I drove in and made a scooping right handed lay up to put us up by two 70-68 with 10 seconds to go. They called time out and set up a play. With around 2 seconds to go in the game their big man had a shot about 5 feet from the basket but our 4 man Cyril came out of no-where and blocked the shot at the buzzer, and that was the game. It was a great win for us now that we are leading the series 1-0 we play at our place on Wednesday. If we win on Wednesday we are in the French League Championship for all the marbles. If we lose on Wednesday we will have to go back to Cholet for the last game of the 3 game series. Hopefully we can close out the series on Wednesday. It is going to be another tough game but I am looking forward to having the opportunity to play for another championship. I ended up finishing the night with 12 points (5-6FG, 2-4FT) and 6 rebounds.
