Leo's first game back played a major role in the Braves victory over the always tough Sidewinders ending with 6pts, 7 boards, 3 steals, and 5 assists. Jonathan was out of this world gaining a triple-double through 4 quarters of play finishing with 23pts, 15 boards, 10 assists, and 5 steals. Nathan contributed with his own double-double 14pts, 10 boards adding 4 assists. Ulises finished one rebound short with 13pts and 9 boards. Cesar played amazing defense but was plagued with foul trouble. The bench stepped up their games in this one especially Alex and Angel B. Great game for both teams.
As the 16-17 Regular Season finally kicked off , The Braves (1-4) were going up against the Crusaders. It was a great game played by our guys up into the beginning of the 4th quarter when Max left the game with an apparent injury and didn't come back. They were down by 4 at the time. Unfortunately Codie(#21) fouled out of the game and that left the Braves with 4 players. They fought hard but couldn't manage to pull off the Victory. Max and Leo both tallied to get 20 points, Leo(21)Max(23). This Game just made the upcoming matchup between these 2 teams on the 27th of this month more anticipating.
This game was a statement game for the Braves. Unfortunately we couldnt bring in the dub. The Crusaders took Home-field advantage and took the W to keep its undefeated season going. They started the game with a 20-0 lead over the Braves. Our Braves were stunned but managed to pick it up and make them work for their baskets. Our player Max had the worst shooting performance of the season, he went 2-13 from downtown. He still managed to drop 21 pts. Leo had a stellar performance but this wasnt enough to take the win. Our guys will now focus on Big Pine tomorrow afternoon. This game will prove if our guys have a chance at a playoff run.
