Toben vs Team CZ 

The Edge

Belongs solely to Toben. They are the defending champions.

Key Matchup

Dinjiyl Walker (Toben) vs Arun Kumar (Team CZ)

The battle between the floor generals. Kumar will have his hands full but, if he can produce the way he did against SWAT, it can be interesting. With that being said, who will leave it all on the floor and carry their squad to the victory?

MB X-Factor

Emmanuel Osayande (Toben) and Ben Garvin (Team CZ)

Osayande is averaging 16.5 points and 8.6 rebounds per game for Toben this season. If he can provide this type of production in the semi’s, Toben will be in great position to advance to the final. Will Osayande deliver for his squad?

Garvin came up huge last week against Swat. In fact, he had his best game of the season posting 15 points, 7 rebounds, and 1 block in the quarter-final. Can Garvin come through for his team once more against the best team of the regular season?

Which MB X-Factor will come thru for their team? Stay tuned…


TBD vs Lint

The Edge

On Nov 2, 2017, TBD got the 86-82 victory over Lint and as a result, they have earned the right to be considered the favorite on game day. But, the post-season is different animal so hopefully, there will be no let down as you can expect Lint to be motivated and focused to get the job done. Can TBD prove that the regular season victory was not a fluke?

Key Matchup



Sherone Edwards (LINT) vs Chris Knapp (TBD)

This matchup will be key as Knapp is one of the stronger forces in the paint for Advance Thursday. Edwards is a high I.Q defender and he is one of the few guys in the league that can defend Knapp by way of single coverage. If the big men can have his way against Lint, it will spell problems for the yellow and blue. With that being said, which veteran will leave it all on the floor and carry their squad to the victory?

MB X-Factor

Neil Sehra (LINT) and Andrew Dawkins (TBD)

If either Sehra or Dawkins produce on game day, it will result in a positive impact for their respective teams. But, the question is, who will it be on the game’s brightest stage. Will it be Sehra or Dawkins?  

Which MB X-Factor will come thru for their team? Stay tuned…

Combo Guards Podcast - Ep. 38 "You're Crazy" feat. Dennis Lim of Eye Studio TO

The fellas went down to 'Eyes Studio TO' to talk hoops with Dennis Lim.
They discussed the Toronto Raptors, if they are exceeding expectations and if DeMar DeRozan is a top-5 shooting guard in the league?

The fellas debated whether or not the Houston Rockets would beat the Golden State Warriors in a 7-game series, is James Harden the MVP and are the refs getting too power hungry or do players complain too much?

During 'Facts and Foolishness" the guys discussed:

Should the Clippers trade DeAndre Jordan?
Should Carmelo Anthony come off the bench?
Was it smart to take LiAngelo Ball out of UCLA?
