Socal Playaz (Blue) vs. Compton Dinosaurz (White)
In this game Socal Playaz did not want to come out slow, Bam (Socal Playaz) and “The Facilitator” (Socal Playaz) came out ready to go with back-to-back buckets.
“The Facilitator” (Socal Playaz), is doing his thing, that’s another one for him and he is on a run of his own. The Playaz are up 20-10 because the Compton Dinosaurz has gone cold. Oh wow MAC is going crazy, He’s on his own 8-0 run with his team up 14.
As usual Adam Stanford (Compton Dinosaurz) is getting himself going early. He steals the rebound from the big man for the foul. His teammate #22 tried to stop the bleeding as well.
Mr. Flynn (Compton Dinosaurz) is trying to get his team in this, along with Adam Stanford, who hasn’t slowed down a bit. But, Mayfield (Socal Playaz) has the answer back. Owens (Playaz) after missing last week joins the party for the pPayaz, its 30-17 Playaz up. Playaz are playing great defense today.
Mr. Flynn hits a 3 trying to keep it close. Then his teammate #20 white hits, it’s a 3 and going into the 2nd, the Socal Playaz are up 10 going into the 2nd.
Ron Artest(Compton Dinosaurz) with a nice move to the bucket. White is bringing this one back. #12 (Compton Dinosaurz) is playing a solid game for his team then Ron Artest yet again for another one bringing his team within 6 (30-36). Adam (white) hits back-to-back buckets for his team. They have picked up their defense.
Mr. Flynn takes it all the way to the basket for the AND1. Compton dinosaurs have tied this game thanks to Adam (Compton Dinosaurz) at 40-40 halfway through the 2nd. But, then Adam puts his team up 2 then Ron Artest follows behind him with a baseline dunk.
Ron Artest is really having a day. Taking it to the cup, putting his team up 52-48 (Compton Dinosaurz). Tie game again because Mayfield (Socal Playaz) has gone on a 6-0 run by himself. Too much dribbling for white, no one gets a shot off it is 54-54 at the half.
Bam (Socal Playaz) comes out strong with 2 back to back buckets giving his team a 1 point lead then his teammate #12 hits a 4 point shot. Playaz, working on picking up the defense which is what had them up in the beginning, 67-62 (Socal Playaz).
But Mr. Ron Artest is playing both sides of the floor. Comes up with a huge block for his team. Dinosaurz defense has slowed down since the Playaz are picking up the intensity, Owens still trying to get himself going, he gets the foul call, 73-66 Socal Playaz.
Someone needs to guard Ron (Compton Dinosaurz) he makes 3 buckets in a row and they have found themself a big man #42 (Dinosaurz) gets back-to-back lay ups.
Mayfield (Socal Playaz) stops the bleeding and makes 3 big baskets of his own, carrying blue on his own, and now it’s a tie game at 85. Mac (Playaz) takes it hard to the basket, makes both his free throws put his team up 2. But, blue needs to REBOUND! 91-89 going into the 4th Compton dinosaurs are up.
Ron Artest is NICE, it’s another jumper for him and then they must have bulletproof glass in here because Ron just sent someone’s shot all the way out of the gym.
Mayfield (Socal Playaz) already has 38 points and is going for 50 but his team is down 7 100-93 with only 7 minutes to play left. Mayfield is trying to give his team some energy. But they aren’t playing any defense.
Ron Artest is playing defense and leading this team its 111-99 Compton dinosaurs with 4:05 left to play. Artest (Dinosaurz) is just on fire! Then Mr. FLynn for 3. It’s 121-105 Dinosaurz. Socal Playaz let the defense go.

Valley Outcast (Blue) vs. Australian Knightz (White)
The Australian Knights start with 2 points because blue isn’t ready but Juice, of Valley Outcast, doesn’t care and gets it going right away. The Knights are coming out really intense today, but neither team is really playing defense. We’re just back and forth, it’s 13-10 in favor of the Knights.
#23 (Valley Outcast) hits a nice 3 to put his team up 1 let’s see if they can go on a run and get some stops. JUICE with a big man move to the basket, it’s 22-29 Valley Outcast is up, to end the 1st quarter.
#23 (Australian Knightz) with a nice 3, but Juice with the answer back. But, now Juice has gotten a tech and has to sit for 2 minutes. Someone just needs to lockdown on defense. 37-40 with 4 minutes left in the 2nd quarter. And now #23 (Valley Outcast) hits yet another 3 to put them up 6.
#23 (Australian Knightz) has now hit 3 3’s thus far. And now another tech has been given because they won’t stop hassling the refs. Mr. “Dial it in” (Australian Knightz #21) has finally joined the party.
But no one puts a body on Mr. Fuller (Valley Outcast), which turns the momentum. Juice again! but he’s this close to fouling out. It’s all tied up at 51 at the half.
Still a little sloppy so someone needs to take over here. It’s 59-53 Australian Knightz up thanks to the help of #21 going on his own run.
Fuller (Valley Outcast ) is probably my favorite big man. He’s cleaning up around the rim and hitting jumpers. There he goes with another one rebound put back. Trying to bring his team back, but they are down 6 with 30 seconds left in the 3rd. #22 Valley Outcast puts one in (78-71) the Knights are up going into the 4th quarter.
Juice giving them some of his juice, nice crossover move with back to back jumpers. Along with his teammate #22, is great with cleaning up around the basket.
A great rebound by Fuller (Valley Outcast), and an even better outlet pass to juice, and he hits the 3 to tie the game at 85.
#5 (Australian Knightz) is doing whatever he can to get involved, he has a nice drive to the basket. This game is crazy and now the Australian Knights are only by 1, 88-87 with 5 minutes to play.
Fuller (Valley Outcast) draws a great foul and he finishes both his free throws. Ties the game at 93 but the Knightz #50 hits the biggest 3 of the game. Then his teammate #23 draws the charge. 96-93 Australian Knightz, they come out on top.
