In the Advanced Thursday quarter-final matchups, here is what we have in store.
We have two teams who know each other very well, as they actually met in the championship final last season. Long story short, Team CZ won the championship. But, this season is a complete 360 for Team CZ as they barely qualified for the post-season.
During their regular season match-up on April 5, 2018, it was all TBD as they dominated their rival 105-79. As a result, all signs suggest that TBD will to do the same on game day. But, when the playoffs start you never really know what your going to get as the environment is filled with pressure and maximum effort is exhausted by all playing. Ultimately, if Team CZ can show up and be there defending champs that we know then it will be close, but if they come out with the inconsistent play they showed this season, then it will be all TBD. Can Team CZ turn on that playoff switch?
Normally, this was a finals match-up as both teams dominated the Advanced division with regular routine. Fast forward to today, they have both taken a step back in the food chain as their dominance over the years have come back to haunt them as it undoubtedly attracted more talent and raised the level of play in the division and Megacity Basketball at large.
During their regular season match-up on March 8, 2018, it was all LINT as they dominated their longtime rival 117-79. But, this game may be more of an outlier as they received a monster performances from the duo of Antin and Blake, who combined for 77 points, 22 rebounds, and 11 assists. Essentially, they outscored SWAT on their own and it may go down as one of the G.O.A.T performances from a duo ever in Megacity Basketball history.
In the end, expect this game to be decided in the final moments as both teams will be ready and come out leaving it all on the floor.
Good luck to everyone and remember to leave it all on the floor!
