Predictions for Week 2: All-City Classic 302 Legends Basketball League
Week 2 is set to separate the leaders from the pack in the All-City Classic 302 Legends League, and here are our predictions.
Excitement abounds this week in the All-City Classic Legends League as already established rivals RBCBL Philly and Chester clash in Game of the Week. Diamond State Warriors are looking to consolidate their top position from last season, and Free Agents are looking to save face. A lot going on, so here are our predictions.
Game 1 of Week 2 Predictions:
Both teams came off last week with losses The good thing is that Noble Nine gets to go home and celebrate with some beers and a victory this Sunday. They should win 52-38 easy. Season before last, Noble Nine had a player who was an enforcer in the paint. He brought high energy on both ends of the court. Rebounds, dunks, blocks. They could use that energy again. Maybe they should reach out to him again. HINT, HINT. Blake Saunders will control this game at a nice pace and get Free Agents outta here early. Free Agents were just terrible. The only shot they have is a long one. It will start on defense for them. With nobody to stop Blake it'll be difficult. But if they feed Abdur the ball enough down low, eventually he will demand a double team and that way he can kick it out to open shooters. Free Agents are blessed with the best shooter in the league, Steve Green, and complimented by shooters Shawn Pep G Green and Timon Cartwright. All they gotta do is knock down shots to keep it close. But.........
Game 2 of Week 2 Predictions:
This will be Laced The Og's first game. So seeing them beat an already established Eastside team seems unlikely. Eastside just served C-City last week and are feeling pretty good about their season. So they roll to 2-0 with a 10pt victory on Sunday. Lerrie Tate and Will should just attack the basket from the get go. No guards to stay in front of them this game. Lamar Davis should be player of the game if he comes to play. Eastside wasn't fully staffed last week so anyone who wasn't there who comes to play this week is a bonus. Laced The OG will just have to pray Eastside forfeits in order to get a win.
Game 3 of Week 2 Predictions:
C-City made their league debut last week and put up a total of 25pts. So it's only right that they lose by 25pts this Sunday. After all, they are playing the best team in the Tri-State area. The only reason why they'll only lose by 25pts is because the refs will call the game early. DSW will cruise thru this game and Evan Martin will have 35 easy. The only way C-City will keep this close is if Fuzz makes his presence felt early. Bilal Ahmad must hit outside shots early too. There will be very little success in the paint against DSW. Get Frog some open shots and Todd some luv on the block. But...good luck C-City.
Game 4 of Week 2 Predictions:
GAME OF THE WEEK: Both teams come off impressive victories to open up the season. This game will be intense and it will be decided by 1 or 2pts. Daryl Sanders, the leagues leading scorer is coming off a 39pt performance. If he feels the same way as he did last week, Philly will have a long day. Chester will play the way they want too, but they should go into Bruce right from the tip. Let him go to work down low. Besides, if he misses, whose gonna keep Shy and Corbin Horsey off the offensive glass. They should have a field day down there. Advantage Chester. Philly must have a big game from Chuck Holt. The matchup between him and Harp Harper will be interesting. Chuck was playing around last week but he wont be able to do that against this team. Philly should just attack Chester's guards from the rip. Skinny Kyle and Levi Lemar will get busy, so they should be in attack mode from the door and not just when their team is down or need a big bucket. Advantage Philly. Philly's on ball pressure could also break Chester's spirit. The press is a problem and if Chester isn't prepared for it, then it'll be a long day for them. Looking at the rosters, both teams were missing key players. Even though both teams handled their business without them, they are impactful players who can easily change the energy and outcome of the game. We are hearing some missing players will be showing up this week, so we shall see. Going off last week's teams that showed up, Chester will pull this one out and give Philly the L.
This week is really going to start separating the teams, the energy is going to be high. It's definitely going to be interesting.
