SEASON 9 - WEEK 1 GAME RECAPS by E.T.
NOYP season 9 opened with a very exciting game between the Cavs coached by Dennis and the Pacers coached by the newly signed Dave. Despite missing their centers, both teams slugged it out and played a helluva of a game to try to notch their first win of the young season. In the end, the boys of Coach Dennis squeaked out a hard fought 2 point win against the boys of Coach Dave in overtime.
The second game also featured a tightly contested game between the Warriors of Coach Hieu and the Nets of Coach Marius. The Nets built a big league and survived a ferocious late game rally from Coach Hieu’s wards. The Nets actually had a chance to win or send the game in overtime but a missed free throw from Jason “Mr. Uy” with 3 seconds remaining sealed the fate of the Warriors.
In the nightcap, 3 pointers were storming like the San Francisco weather as the Wizards, sporting a new look under Coach Fred, edged out the Nuggets of Coach Dindo who were down 4 men including the coach himself. The record for the most points in a game both by a team was shattered by the Wizards who scored 122 points. The record for the most 3 pointers in a single game was also eclipsed by Mike Veleztan of the Wizards who netted eleven 3 pointers. The Nuggets were led by Kobe who himself broke the previous record of most 3 pointers (9 by Randy Tibayan) with his 10 threes until it was broken by Mike V. late in the game. - E.T.
