WELCOME TO THE NBA D-LEAGUE
FINALS TRNTED BY TACO BELL ON
CBS SPORTS NETWORK.
IT'S SURF CITY.
SANTA CRUZ CALIFORNIA, TOP SEED,
THE MAD ANTS OF FORT WAYNE AND
THE SIX SEED, THE WARRIORS OF
SANTA CRUZ, A TWO-GAME SWEEP FOR
FORT WAYNE TO ADVANCE.
TOOK THREE GAMES FOR SANTA CRUZ
TO TAKE DOWN THE DEFENDING
CHAMPS.
SO WE GET SET HERE FOR GAME ONE
TONIGHT.
ONE THING ABOUT A BEST OF THREE,
YOU FIND OUT REALLY QUICKLY
WHICH TEAM IS GOING TO SIEZE
THAT MOMENTUM.
>> YOU CAN ONLY AFFORD ONE LOSS
SO THERE IS VERY THE ROOM FOR
ERROR BUT WHAT YOU WANT TO DO IS
MAKE SURE IN THE SHORT PERIOD OF
TIME YOU FIND YOUR GAME EARLY
AND MAINTAIN THAT BECAUSE WHAT
IS GOING TO HAPPEN HERE IS IF
YOU FIND YOURSELF DOWN, HARD TO
GET BACK INTO IT.
MOMENTUM IS THE ADVANTAGE TO THE
PERSON PLAYING WELL.
>> THE WARRIORS BACK IN THE
FINALS FOR THE SECOND STRAIGHT
YEAR.
THEY LOST AT THIS POINT LAST
YEAR.
FIRST EVER IN THE FINALS FOR
FORT WAYNE.
THE PROS-- THE PROSPECT TO
WATCH.
RON HOWARD HAS BEEN THE BASE.
>> HE HAS BEEN A PILLAR, A MAIN
STAY, THE POINT GUARD NOT ONLY
DOES HE GET HIMSELF GOING
OFFENSIVELY BUT DOES A REALLY
GOOD JOB OF FOUR ASSISTS A GAME
OF GETTING HIS TEAMMATES
INVOLVED AS WELL.
HE HAS THE ABILITY AT TIMES FROM
THE PERIMETER TO BE A STREAKY
SHOOTER BUT AN ALL AROUND GAME.
NO WEAKNESSES.
>> ONE OF THE STORY LINES IS WHO
CONTROLS TEMPO.
SANTA CRUZ GETS UP AND DOWN THE
FLOOR.
>> THEY DO.
THEY WANT TO CHANGE ENDS QUICK.
THEY WANT A LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES
AND A LOT OF IT STARTS WITH
THEIR BACKCOURT.
CAMERON JONES, THE PENETRATOR,
THE BETWEEN THE TWO, IT REALLY
STARTS WITH SETH CURRY.
HE HAS TO GET HIMSELF ENGAGED
EARLY, THE ABILITY TO KNOCK DOWN
PERIMETER JUMP SHOTS.
SAW HIM IN THE FIRST ROUND.
HE REALLY CARRIED HIS TEAM.
THEY UPSET THEM IN TWO GAMES ALL
BECAUSE OF THE SHARP SHOOTING
FROM THE PERIMETER.
ONE OTHER NOTE HE IS ALSO IN
TRANSITION, LEARNING HOW TO PLAY
THE POINT GUARD POSITION AT THIS
LEVEL.
>> LINEUPS BROUGHT TO YOU BY BUD
LITE BOULDIN CAME OVER IN THE
TRADE MID SEASON.
ROJAS FRISBY AS WELL.
AS FOR THE WARRIORS, THE
PLAYOFFS AVERAGING NEARLY 17
POINTS AND 14 REBOUNDS PER GAME.
WE HAVE A PACKED HOUSE THIS
EVENING.
THE OPENING TAP IS CONTROLLED BY
THE TOP SEED FORT WAYNE 34-16 IN
THE REGULAR SEASON AND A PAIR OF
TWO-GAME SWEEPS.
SO FAR IN THE POST SEASON.
BOULDIN LEFT IT SHORT.
OPENING TOUCH FOR THE MAD ANTS.
HERE'S SETH CURRY, POSTING UP
AND NOW SANTA CRUZ ALWAYS PLAYS
WELL AT HOME IN FRONT OF THIS
CROWD.
LAST TWO SERIES PLAYED VERY WELL
IN THEIR FIRST GAME AT HOME AND
WERE ABLE TO CARRY OVER THE REST
OF THE SERIES.
YOU SEE CONNER HENRY THE LAST
SEASON AT THE HELM OF FORT
WAYNE.
COACH OF THE YEAR IN THE
D-LEAGUE IS CONNER HENRY.
THEY NEED TO START OFF PLAYING
WELL HERE BECAUSE THERE ARE
GOING TO BE TWO POTENTIALLY
TOUGH GAMES IN FORT WAYNE COMING
UP.
>> TURNOVER BY THE MAD ANTS.
KNOCKING ONE DOWN UNDERNEATH TO
BEGIN.
SHORT THIS TIME AND REBOUNDED BY
TREY MCKINNEY JONES.
>> TOUGH SHOT, QUICK RELEASE ON
THE STEP BACK.
A CHECK BY SETH CURRY.
>> AVERAGING 25 IN THE PLAYOFFS
TO GO WITH FIVE ASSISTS, THIS
SHOT SPINS OUT AND AGAIN
REBOUNDED.
>> THE IMPORTANCE OF REBOUNDING
AS WE SEE NWAELELE SCORING ON
THE OTHER END.
CAN'T LET FORT WAYNE PLAY TO ONE
OF THEIR STRENGTHS CLIMBING THE
OFFENSIVE BOARD.
GOWL GOULBOURNE AGAIN.
THE FLOATER IS DOWN.
AND IT IS 6-0 WARRIORS.
>> CASEY HILL AT HOME FEEDING
OFF THIS ENERGY FROM THE CROWD.
LET'S NOT FORGET SANTA CRUZ ON A
ROAD TO REDEMPTION AFTER LOSING
SEASON'S FINALS TO RIO GRAND
VALLEY.
>> JUST UNDER WAY IN SANTA CRUZ,
A GOOD START FOR THE WARRIORS.
>> A GOOD HUSTLE.
ACTIVE BODIES AROUND THE RIM.
THAT'S HIS GAME GOULBOURNE, NOT
REALLY A BACK TO THE BASKET KIND
OF PLAYER, STILL LEARNING THAT
POST GAME BUT WHAT HE IS TRYING
TO DO IS ALSO ADD THAT 10 OR
12-FOOT MEDIUM RANGE JUMP SHOT
BUT AS FAR AS LENGTH AND
ATHLETICISM, HE HAS AN ACTIVE
BODY AND DOES A REALLY GOD JOB
OF USING THAT TO HIS ADVANTAGE.
>> ROWN HOWARD KNOCKS IN THE
FIRST.
HE HAS BEEN A LIFER WITH THE MAD
ANTS.
IMPRESSIVE ON THE COURT, IN THE
LOCKER ROOM, CONTROLS THINGS
THERE.
IN THE COMMUNITY AS WELL.
FROM THE INCEPTION OF THIS
FRANCHISE, HE HAS BEEN THE FACE
OF THE FRANCHISE, MR. MAD ANTS.
THEY LOVE HAVING HIM AND THEY
WOULD LOVE TO GET HIM A
CHAMPIONSHIP.
>> YOU WERE TALKING THROUGHOUT
THE ORGANIZATION EVERYBODY HAS
NOTHING BUT A LOT OF RESPECT FOR
RON HOWARD.
THEY REALLY SPEAK VERY, VERY
HIGHLY AND RIGHTFULLY SO OF THE
MAN.
HE IS NOT ONLY THE LEADING
SCORER FOR THE MAD ANTS, HE IS
THE ALL TIME LEADING SCORER IN
THE D-LEAGUE.
CASEY HILL, HEAD COACH OF THE
WARRIORS.
EARLY MOMENTS HERE IN SANTA
CRUZ, GAME ONE OF THE BEST OF
THREE, NBA D-LEAGUE FINAL.
CASEY HILL'S TEAM BACK FOR THE
SECOND STRAIGHT YEAR TRYING TO
GET REDEMPTION HERE.
MCKINNEY JONES INSIDE SCORES THE
FIRST FIELD GOAL FOR THE MAD
ANTS.
>> MCKINNEY JONES OUT OF MIAMI.
NICE SOFT TOUCH ON THE PERIMETER
JUMP SHOT HAS THE ABILITY TO BET
TO THE BASKET AS WELL.
HE PULLS UP FROM THE MID RANGE
AND KNOCKS DOWN THE JUMPER OFF
THE DRIBBLE.
WELL ROUNDED GAME.
RON HOWARD KNOCKS IT DOWN.
>> NO WEAKNESSES.
GOT A COMPLETE GAME A LOT OF
THINGS HE DOES WELL, SO
IMPORTANT, VITAL TO WHAT THEY DO
OUT ON THE FLOOR AND OFF THE
FLOOR.
>> RON JONES GETS INSIDE AND
CONTINUES HIS FANTASTIC PLAYOFF
RUN.
HOWARD KNOCKS IT DOWN OFF THE
BOUNCE.
BACK-TO-BACK BUCKETS FOR RON
HOWARD.
>> A NICE FEEL FOR WHAT NEEDS TO
BE DONE OUT THERE ON THE FLOOR
WHETHER OR NOT IT'S A JUMP SHOT
THAT HE TAKES HIMSELF OR IF HE
NEEDS TO GET THE BALL INSIDE.
ALSO HAS A GREAT FEEL FOR TEMPO,
WHETHER OR NOT TO RUN.
REAL GOOD DECISION MAKING FOR
RON HOWARD AND WAYNE MAD ANTS.
>> AGAIN, DEFENSE GOT CAUGHT
PLAYING OFF THEM A LITTLE BIT.
ENOUGH FOR THEM TO GET THE SHOT
OFF.
>> WILL FRISBY BANKS IT AND
TAKES IT HOME.
ANOTHER MIAMI PRODUCT.
>> BIG FELLOW IN SIZE, STANDS
ABOUT 6'9" TO'10".
A TURNOVER FOR THE WARRIORS OFF
THE HAND OF KEVIN KOTZUR.
>> SETS UP THE DRIVE AND DEFENSE
FOR SANTA CRUZ SLOW TO ROTATE.
>> 9-8 MAD ANTS 7:30 TO PLAY IN
THE OPENING QUARTER.
PULLED IT AND ONE.
HE HAS A BOUNCE ON HIM.
TIME TO POST IT UP.
NICE STRONG BODY.
AND WHAT I LIKE TO SEE HIM GET
THE BALL IN THERE, HE HAD MADE A
DECISIVE MOVE.
HE KNEW HE HAD THE ADVANTAGE.
WHY MESS AROUND?
KEEP IT SIMPLE AND GO STRAIGHT
UP.
SOMETHING I WOULDN'T BE
SURPRISED IF THEY LOOKED TO DO
IT A LITTLE BIT MORE.
>> GOULBOURNE AGAIN, HE CAME
OVER MID SEASON.
>> MCKINNEY JONES A LITTLE LATE
ON THE ROTATION BUT HOW ABOUT
THE QUICK ANSWER?
>> HOWARD AT THIS END HAS SIX
POINTS AND ITS 14-10 FORT WAYNE
AS WE BET TO THE MIDWAY THROUGH
THE FIRST.
TRIES TO DOUBLE AND KICK.
HE COMES IN FOR THE REBOUND AND
GOULBOURNE IS AT THE LINE.
>> HOW ABOUT THE HUSTLE BY LANCE
GOULBOURNE NOT GIVING UP ON THE
PLAY, ANTICIPATES THE MISSED
SHOT.
SHOT GOES UP BY JONES AND HE'S
JUST CLIMBING THE BOARDS RIGHT
NOW.
SIX REBOUNDS FOR LANCE
GOULBOURNE IN THE GAME ALREADY,
FRIENDS AND HE HAS THREE ON THE
OFFENSIVE GLASS.
ALL THAT IN 5:20 WORTH OF WORK.
>> HE AVERAGED EIGHT REBOUNDS IN
THE REGULAR SEASON, 13.6 HERE IN
THE PLAYOFFS AND 18-REBOUND GAME
IN THE SEMIFINALS.
>> HAD A GAME IN THE SECOND
ROUND WHERE HE ALMOST REACHED
THE TRIPLE DOUBLE MARK, HAD
EIGHT ASSISTS IN THAT GAME.
SO YOU SEE HIS IMPORTANCE, MORE
IMPORTANT THAN THAT, YOU SEE THE
WELL ROUNDED WELL BALANCED GAME
THAT HE HAS.
ONE ASPECT OF HIS GAME AND THERE
ARE OTHER WAYS HE CAN HURT YOU.
>> FRISBY HANDS OFF.
MCKINNEY JONES GOT IT.
35%.
>> HE TALKED ABOUT HIS NICE SOFT
TOUCH.
THE SHOT RANGE AS WELL.
HE CAN SHOOT IT OFF THE DRIBBLE
OR SPOT UP.
THAT TIME NO DRIBBLE NECESSARY.
>> HOWARD OFF THE DRIBBLE,
GOULBOURNE TURNED IT DOWN.
>> WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THAT PLAY
IS HE DIDN'T SETTLE FOR THE JUMP
SHOT.
NICE DECISION TO GET CLOSER, HE
TAKES IT ALL THE WAY TO RIM.
RIGHT NOW MATT BOULDIN IS
PLAYING WELL.
>> HE GOT IN TOO DEEP AND PULLED
AWAY BY FORT WAYNE LEADING BY
SEVEN.
>> MATT BOULDIN IN THE GAME AS
TIME TAKES THE PRESSURE OFF RON
HOWARD FROM RUNNING THE TEAM.
>> HOWARD CAUGHT A JUMPER.
RON HOWARD WHAT A START.
>> A NUMBER OF PEOPLE HAVE TOLD
ME ALL WEEK LONG HOW IS RON
HOWARD NOT IN THE NBA?
AND YOU GOT TO WONDER WITH THE
WAY HE'S PLAYING NOW.
YOU'RE UP NINE.
THE HOME TEAM DOMINATING.
MAD ANTS TRYING TO GET
THEMSELVES BACK IN IT WITH MORE
BASKETS JUST LIKE THAT.
BACK HERE AT SURF CITY.
THEY'VE HAD QUITE A SEASON.
BEST IN THE HISTORY OF THE
FRANCHISE.
34-16.
THEY'VE WON 10 STRAIGHT AND RON
HOWARD THIS WEEK NAMED D-LEAGUE
CO-M.V.P. AND NINE-POINT
BEGINNING FOR RON HOWARD HERE IN
GAME ONE.
>> WE TALKED ABOUT HIS PROWESS
ON THE OFFENSE, NOT ONLY LIMITED
TO GETTING HIS TEAMMATES
INVOLVED BUT HE HAS THE ABILITY
TO SCORE AS WELL.
OFF THE DRIBBLE.
AND HE HAS THE KNACK OF HEADING
TO THE RIM AS WELL.
THEY MET ONCE IN THE REGULAR
SEASON.
FORT WAYNE WINNING THAT ONE.
OTHER PEOPLE MAY BE SURPRISED
THEY'RE IN THE FINALS BUT
THEY'RE REALLY NOT.
WE WERE BUILDING FOR THIS HE
SAID AND WE LIKE WE HAVE ALL THE
COMPOAN EBTS.
>> THEY'VE BEAT TWO HIGHER SEED
TEAMS, THE DEFENDER AND LAST
YEAR'S CHAMPIONS, THE VIPERS AND
THE WAY THEY DID IT WAS PRETTY
IMPRESSIVE.
THEY CAME OUT IN GAME TWO AND
PLAYED VERY, VERY WELL.
>> A DOUBLE DRIBBLE RIGHT THERE
BUT THE CALL WAS ON JOE
ALEXANDER 4:27 IN THE FIRST.
THE HAWKS TAKE ON THE MAJORS
AGAIN.
THE HAWKS HAVE WON GAMES ONE AND
GAME THREE TO TAKE A 2-1 SERIES
LEAD.
ONE OF THE TEAMS AFFILIATED WITH
THIS FORT WAYNE MAD ANTS TEAM.
TOUGH SHOT, WON'T FALL, KNOCKED
OUT OF BOUNDS.
AND IT WILL BE SANTA CRUZ
BASKETBALL.
SANTA CRUZ WITH GOLDEN STATE THE
WARRIORS WILL PLAY THE CLIPPERS
LATER ON TONIGHT HERE'S MATT
BOLDIN.
DRIBBLE, NO, MCKINNEY JONES.
DOUBLE DIGITS.
>> CASEY HILL, OFFENSIVE
REBOUNDS BEING GIVEN UP.
WAS IN TRANSITION AS OPPOSED TO
THE HALF COURT BUT HAVE YOU TO
MAKE SURE YOU FINISH THE
DEFENSIVE EXCHANGES WITH THE
REBOUND.
>> BOLDIN LEAVES IT OFF AND THE
FINISH FOR RON HOWARD.
HE HAS 11.
>> PROBABLY THE BEST START YOU
COULD HOPE FOR CONNER HENRY ON
THE ROAD SUCH AS THIS ARENA.
A PLACE WHERE SANTA CRUZ HAS
THRIVED ALL SEASON LONG FOR THEM
TO BE UP 11 RIGHT NOW AS WE
ENTER THE LAST THREE MINUTES OF
THE FIRST QUARTER, THAT'S A
GREAT SIGN FOR THE MAD ANTS AND
COACH HENRY.
>> ALEXANDER GOES STRONG.
>> GOT FOULED ON THAT PLAY BY
FRISBY.
>> REBOUNDED BY ROJAS.
THE MAD ANTS THROW IT AWAY.
25-12 IN THE START FOR THE
CO-M.V.P. OF THE D-LEAGUE RON 11
POINTS.
NINTH LEADING SCORER IN THE
REGULAR SEASON.
MR. MAD ANTS RON AND THE ROAD
TEAM HERE IN GAME ONE LEADING BY
13 DEEP IN THE FIRST QUARTER.
GAME ONE OF THE FINALS.
ON MARCH 29, HOWARD BECAME THE
NBA D-LEAGUE ALL TIME LEADING
SCORER AND 4,252 POINTS.
CURRENTLY 3493 HE HAS PLAYED
SEVEN SEASONS IN FORT WAYNE.
AS YOU MENTIONED HE IS THE FACE
OF THIS FRANCHISE AND THEY FEEL
VERY BLESSED TO HAVE HIM AND TO
HAVE HAD HIM THROUGH ALL THESE
YEARS.
>> TALKING TO COACH CONNER HENRY
AND A LITTLE LATER WE'LL BE TALK
TO SOME FRONT OFFICE PEOPLE IN
FORT WAYNE AS WELL.
YOU TALK ABOUT ALL THE GOOD
THINGS HE HAS DONE ON AND OFF
THE FLOOR, IN THE LOCKER ROOM,
HE IS JUST AN EXEMBLEAR PLEAR--
AN EXEMPLARY CITIZEN.
THE ONLY THING LEFT NOW IS FOR
THE NBA TO GET SMART AND OFFER
HIM UP A JOB.
AS YOU WATCH HIS GAME, SURE
THERE ARE THINGS THAT EVERYBODY
HAS TO WORK O. NOBODY IS A
COMPLETE PLAYER BUT I THINK
THERE IS ENOUGH IN HIS GAME TO
JUSTIFY BEING AT THE NEXT LEVEL.
>> ALEXANDER IN THE BASELINE.
WE DIDN'T SEE HIM IN THE OPENING
ROUND.
SAW HIM HALF OF THE TIME IN THE
SEMIFINALS, BROKEN BONE IN THE
RIGHT WRIST.
SHORT THIS TIME.
WHIPS IT UP AND IN AND HOWARD
RIGHT NOW CHECKED THAT TONY
MITCHELL WHO HAS WON THE DUNK
CONTEST THESE LAST FEW YEARS
MAKING HIS PRESENCE FELT OUT OF
THE TIMEOUT.
>> IF YOU HAVE EVER WATCHED TONY
MITCHELL PLAY, A PRODUCT OUT OF
ALABAMA, HE SCORES... CHECK THAT
NORTH TEXAS.
HE COMES BACK TO THE FOUL-LINE
BUT HE TRIES TO CONVERT BUT HE
SCORES IN BUNCHES AND HE HAS A
HOT HAND.
YOU TALK TO COACH CONNER HENRY
ABOUT HOW HE HAS TO LIMIT HIS
JUMP SHOTS LAST YEAR.
MAYBE LAST YEAR HE WOULD HAVE
TAKEN 20 SHOTS A GAME.
INSTEAD HE HAS GOT IT DOWN TO
HALF THE JUMP SHOTS BUT HE IS IT
HAS NOT HURT OTHER ASPECTS OF
HIS GAME.
HE HAS REBOUNDED AND DONE OTHER
THINGS.
HE IS FROM ALABAMA.
>> CAMERON JONES OUT OF NORTHERN
ARIZONA WITH A CHANCE AT A
THREE-POINT PLAY AVERAGING 25 IN
THE PLAYOFFS WITH SIX AND A HALF
REBOUNDS AND FIVE ASSISTS.
HE MAKES THE THREE.
1:39 IN THE OPENING QUARTER.
HERE COMES MITCHELL AGAIN.
REBOUND, WEAK SIDE TO CAMERON
JONES.
KNOWN FOR MAKING THE IMPOSSIBLE
SHOT LOOK EASE #E ONE OF THE
THINGS HE IS STILL WORKING ON TO
GET HIMSELF TO THE NEXT LEVEL IS
THE SHOT SELECTION.
TRY TO BE A LITTLE BIT MORE JEW
DISHES WITH THE SHOTS HE GETS
UP.
>> GET TO THE RIM.
WE'VE SEEN IT ALL, REGULAR
SEASON, PLAYOFFS, AND HE HAS
BEEN MR. CONSISTENCY FOR THE
WARRIOR TEAM.
>> CHECKING IN FOR THE FIRES
TIME IS MAURICE BAKER.
JONES WITH SIX EARLY POINTS HERE
IN GAME ONE.
>> BOTH TEAMS OVER THE WHRIMENT
AS WE WIND DOWN THE FIRST.
A REBOUND FOR BAKER.
GOOD JOB THAT TIME.
BAKER DOING WHAT HE NEEDS TO DO,
BLOCK OUT AND HELP OUT WITH THE
REBOUNDING.
JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE A GUARD
DON'T LET THE BIG GUYS DO ALL
THE WORK.
YOU'VE GOT TO COME IN FROM THE
PERIMETER AND GARNER THOSE LONG
REBOUNDS.
>> NICE SHOT BY MICHAEL THOMPSON
IN OFF THE BENCH.
SHARP SHOOTER AVERAGING 15 A
GAME IN THE PLAYOFFS.
FOUL AND JONES WENT UP AGAIN ON
THE JUMPER.
>> CARDINAL RULE, YOU NEVER FOUL
JUMP SHOOTERS.
SECOND PART OF THAT RULE, YOU
NEVER FOUL GUYS WHO AREN'T JUMP
SHOOTING.
LET HIM SHOOT THE BALL.
CAMERON JONES NOT KNOWN AS A
DEAD EYE PERIMETER JUMP SHOT.
HE WANTS TO GET TO THE BASKET SO
WHEN HE PLAYS INTO YOUR HANDS
AND SHOOTS A QUICK JUMP SHOT,
YOU DON'T WANT TO BAIL HIM OUT
AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT FORT
WAYNE DID ON THAT LAST EXCHANGE.
>> 2720-- 27-20 AND THAT'S RARE
FOR THIS LEAGUE.
HE GOT HURT DURING THE LAST
ROUND 27-21 WITH 50 SECONDS TO
PLAY IF THE FIRST.
GAME ONE BEST OF THREE FINAL
SERIES BETWEEN FORT WAYNE AND
SANTA CRUZ.
TOUGH SHOT THIS TIME FOR HOWARD.
TRACKED DOWN BY ROJAS.
>> THE OFFENSIVE REBOUNDING OF
WAYNE IS REALLY WHAT IS SETTING
SAPT ACRUZ BACK RIGHT NOW
BECAUSE YOU ARE PLAYING PRETTY
GOOD DEFENSE, SHOT GOES UP AND
HURTING YOUR DEFENSE BY NOT
BLOCKING OUT AND ALLOWING SECOND
CHANCE.
ROJAS THERE TO CLEAN IT UP AND
THAT'S WHAT HE DOES AT 6'4" GETS
NEARLY NINE REBOUNDS A GAME.
>> YOU KNOW THINGS ARE GOING
YOUR WAY WHEN YOU ARE THROWING A
LOT IN TRANSITION ON THE ROAD IN
THE FINALS.
YOU ARE FEELING PRETTY GOOD
ABOUT YOUR GAME RIGHT NOW.
FORT WAYNE LOOKING TO BE
AGGRESSIVE WHILE CHANGING ENDS.
>> FINAL TWO SECONDS TO THE
QUARTER AND A FOUL.
>> NO REASON FOR THAT FOUL.
THOMPSON 30 FEET AWAY FROM THE
BASKET.
HE CAN'T HURT FROM YOU THAT
RANGE.
THOMPSON SECOND PART OF SQUASH
BROTHER TWO.
THE ORIGINAL FLASH BROTHERS
ABOUT 60 MILES DOWN THE ROAD AT
GOLDEN STATE AGAINST THE
CLIPPERS LATER TONIGHT WITH SETH
CURRY.
>> SPLASH BROTHERS SOUTH SEEING
AS THEY'RE SOUTH OF THE BAY
AREA.
>> EITHER WAY PRETTY COOL
NICKNAMES.
>> 31-23 LEADING BY EIGHT IN
GAME ONE.
MATT BOULDIN GETTING IN ON THE
ACT EARLY, GOULBOURNE LOOKING
FOR ANOTHER DOUBLE-DOUBLE AND
NWAELELE HAS BEEN PHENOMENAL IN
THE POST SEASON.
GAME ONE OFF AND RUNNING IN SABT
ACRUZ.
FORT WAYNE MADE ITS FIRST
PLAYOFF APPEARANCE EVER LAST
SEASON.
D-LEAGUE SANTA CRUZ MADE ITS
PLAYOFFS IN THE FIRST SEASON OF
EXISTENCE.
TONY MITCHELL SCORED 40 IN GAME
ONE AND 20 IN GAME TWO.
WARRIORS CAMERON JONES HAD 15
POINTS IN GAME ONE.
AND NOW THEY MEET AGAIN THIS
YEAR.
THIS TIME FOR THE TITLE.
>> A FEW MORE ADDITIONS TO A
TEAM THAT WAS PRETTY GOOD LAST
YEAR BUT NOW THOSE ADDITIONS
HAVE MADE THIS TEAM THE NUMBER
ONE TEAM IN THE LEAGUE ALL
SEASON LONG.
>> ALLEY-OOP AND JOE ALEXANDER
CASHES IN.
GOOD BALL MOVEMENT, CAUGHT
NAPPING ON THE WEAK SIDE.
NOBODY PUTTING A BODY ON
ALEXANDER.
>> FORMER EIGHTH OVERALL PICK IN
THE NBA DRAFT TRYING TO RES RECT
HIS CAREER AND GET BACK TO THE
TOP LEVEL.
HOT AND THROUGHOUT THE PLAYOFFS
BUT THIS IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS
HERE.
>> GOOD RECOGNITION BY BAKER.
>> 67 NBA GAMES FOR ALEXANDER
WITH THE BULLS, 2008-2010.
>> LOOKING FOR INSIDE, GOOD
POSITION TURN AROUND, GOES DOWN
FOR TIM OHLBRECHT, THE GERMAN.
>> THE CHAMP IN THIS LEAGUE.
LAST YEAR HE WAS A MEMBER OF THE
RIO GRAND VALLEY VIPERS.
WHEN HE FIRST CAME STATE SIDE, A
LOT OF PEOPLE COMPARED HIM,
OBVIOUSLY BOTH BEING OF GERMAN
DESCENT, SAME HEIGHT FOR THE
MOST PART.
AND SIMILAR GAME.
>> TO THE RIM, IN THESE PLAYOFFS
FOR SANTA CRUZ.
>> ENERGY GUY FROM THE PERIMETER
BUT IS LOOKING TO GET HIS
TEAMMATES INVOLVED AND GET TO
THE BASKET.
>> BAKER PICKS UP HIS FIRST, THE
OKLAHOMA STATE PRODUCT.
CASEY HILL NOT SURE ABOUT THAT
ONE BUT THIS IS WHAT KIWI CAN
DO.
>> AND YOU SEE HOW HO BLEW BY
MATT BOULDIN, ONE OF THE KNOCKS
ON BOULDIN IS HE QUICK AT THE
NEXT LEVEL?
>> I KNOW HE IS SHORTER THAN YOU
MUCH QUICKER BUT HAVE YOU TO
FIND A WAY OF KEEPING HIM IN
FRONT OF YOU AS WE SEE THE BALL.
>> CONNER HENRY, FIRST YEAR AS
HEAD COACH, COACH OF THE YEAR IN
THE D-LEAGUE.
A COUPLE OF CUPS OF COFFEE IN
THE NBA, HE PLAYED IN LEAGUES
LIKE THIS ALL THROUGHOUT, KIND
OF BASKETBALL LIFE.
>> HE KNOWS WHAT THESE GUYS ARE
GOING THROUGH AND WHERE THEY'VE
COME FROM AND WHERE THEY TRY TO
GET TO AND THE GOAL IS TO GET TO
THE NEXT LEVEL, MAKE A LIVING
OUT OF YOUR SKILL PLAYING
BASKETBALL AND WHAT BETTER PLACE
TO BE DOING THAT THAN D-LEAGUE.
>> I REMEMBER WATCHING CONNER
PLAYING FOR THE RAPID CITY WHEN
I WAS YOUNG IN 1986.
YOU SAID 1986, SNRIET.
>> YOU WERE THREE AND A HALF
YEARS OLD.
THERINGS-- THERE IS NO WAY YOU
WERE A-DAY-OLDER.
>> GAME ONE OF THE D-LEAGUE
FINALS.
ALEXANDER THE RECIPIENT AGAIN.
YOU LIKE THE HIGH LOW THOMPSON
BLEW BY HIS DEFENDER AND THAT
SET UP THE DISH TO ALEXANDER.
HE HAS SIX BUT THOMPSON MADE
THAT PLAY HAPPEN WITH HIS
PENETRATION.
>> OHLBRECHT WORKING FOR THE UP
AND UNDER.
AND HE HELD HIS GROUND.
REALLY DIDN'T ALLOW OHLBRECHT TO
OPERATE.
YOU CAN SEE FROM THAT PLAY THERE
ONE OF THE KNOCKS ON OHLBRECHT
HE HAS TO GET A LITTLE STRONGER,
WORK ON NOT ONLY GETTING THE
POSITION IN THE POST BUT ALSO
HOLDING IT.
OF THE HE TRAVELED THAT TIME.
A LITTLE FRUSTRATED.
8-2 SANTA CRUZ RUN.
>> ANOTHER GOOD SIGN FOR
THOMPSON WE TALKED ABOUT HIM ALL
SEASON LONG BEING A STREAKY
SHOOTER AT TIMES.
STRUGGLED WITH HIS CONFIDENCE.
ALWAYS A GOOD SIGN WHEN HE
STARTS OFF THE GAME KNOCKING
DOWN JUMP SHOTS.
ANOTHER OFFENSIVE FOUL HERE.
>> FIRST TURNOVER ON FORT WAYNE.
>> BAKER STANDING HIS GROUND
KYSER PERMANENTY BEING HELPED
ALONG.
>> WATCHING AT HOME DOES NOT DO
IT JUSTICE.
>> FRSH SHOT CLOCK CREATED BY
BAKER THAT TIME.
GARDNER SLICING IN.
>> A LITTLE HESITATION DRIBBLE,
ALMOST PICKED UP THE DRIBBLE.
KEPT IT ALIVE AND A LITTLE
CHANGE OF PACE.
SOMETIMES WHEN YOU'RE A GUARD,
IT'S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT BEING THE
QUICKEST GUY OUT THERE.
IT'S THE GUY WHO CHANGES SPEEDS
THE BEST AND AT TIMES YOU
MENTIONED IT EARLIER WITH
BOWLTDIN WITH HIS HESITATION
DRIBBLE.
THAT TIME KIWI GARDNER DECIDED
TO USE IT AS WELL.
A HECK OF A TOOL, A TOUGH WEAPON
33-32, A RUN FOR THE WARRIORS TO
GET BACK IN AND HOWARD BACK OFF
THE BENCH.
SANTA CRUZ HAS GOTTEN THEMSELVES
BACK IN WITHIN ONE.
HOWARD BACK ON THE FLOOR CRKS
THEY SEPARATE THEMSELVES?
CAN MAD ANTS GET THAT LEAD THAT
THEY HAD EARLIER.
CAN THEY GET BACK TO THAT?
RIGHT NOW IT'S TIED UP.
>> MITCHELL DEFENDED BY BAKER.
MITCHELL HANGS, MISSES.
PUT BACK DOWN FOR OHLBRECHT.
>> THERE'S MORE OF THAT
OFFENSIVE REBOUNDING THAT CASEY
HILL WAS TRYING TO STOP.
SANTA CRUZ KNEW COMING INTO THIS
GAME FORT WAYNE LOVES TO CRASH
THE BOARDS SO THEIR EFFORT WAS
TO MAKE SURE YOU KEPT THEM OFF.
NINE OFFENSIVE BOARDS THUS FAR
FOR THE MAD ANTS WITH A LITTLE
MORE THAN EIGHT MINUTES LEFT TO
PLAY IN THE SECOND.
>> NWAELELE PICKED UP BY HOWARD.
OHLBRECHT DEFENDS ON ALEXANDER.
HE IS A FOOT OR TWO TOO FAR OFF
THE BLOCK TO BE EFFECTIVE.
AND DANIEL NWAELELE TAKES THE
BUCKET IN ONE.
>> THAT'S PRETTY EFFECTIVE.
NWAELELE GETTING TO THE RIM,
LOOSE BALL JUST WINDS UP IN HIS
HANDS AND HE MAKES THE DECISION
TO MOVE STRAIGHT ON THE RIM.
INCONSISTENCY THROUGHOUT THIS
WHOLE SEASON.
HAS BEEN ONE OF THE HEADLINES IN
MY MIND.
>> I THINK WHERE YOU ALSO
OVERLOOK AT TIMES THE DEFENSE.
HE ALSO DOES A REALLY GOOD JOB
PLAYING THE OTHER TEAM'S MAIN
PERIMETER SCORER.
YOU SEE HIM NOW ON THE BALL
BOULDIN COULD HAVING THE POINT
GUARD.
HE CAN SCORE FROM THE PERIMETER,
HE CAN SCORE FROM LONG RANGE.
THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS THAT
NWAELELE DOES FOR THIS SANTA
CRUZ TEAM.
>> THE REBOUND AND PUSHES 36-35
BACKDOOR, LEAVE IT OFF
UNDERNEATH BUT ALEXANDER
COULDN'T HANDLE IT.
>> JUST NOT READY TO COME UP
WITH THAT PASS FROM NWAELELE.
NWAELELE NICE BACKDOOR CUT, OL'
IMRECT COMES OVER AND ALEXANDER
HAS TO TAKE THAT.
AN EASY TWO RIGHT THERE FOR
NWAELELE STIRRING IT UP.
SCRIZ SECOND IN THE WEST, 29-2
SIX SEED, SECOND IN THE D-LEAGUE
IN REBOUNDS PER GAME.
AND YOU TALKED ABOUT IT
THROUGHOUT THE HALF.
AS RON HOWARD CONTINUES TO STAY
HOT IN THE SECOND HALF.
>> YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU
GUARD COMING OFF THE SCREEN
BECAUSE WHEN LEFT ALONE EVEN FOR
A SPLIT SECOND HE HAS BEEN
MAKING THE DEFENSE PAY ALL NIGHT
LONG AND YOU WONDER WHEN THE
DEFENSE IS GOING TO ADJUST.
>> ALEXANDER ON THE DRIVING END
AGAINST OHLBRECHT AND A FOUL
AGAINST TIM OHLBRECHT AND WILL
FRISBY CHECKS BACK INTO THE
LINEUP FOR THE MAD ANTS TOUGH
MATCHUP FOR OHLBRECHT GOING UP
AGAINST ALEXANDER.
A WIDE STRONG BODY THAT LIKES TO
THROW THE WOOD AROUND AND
OHLBRECHT STRUGGLES WITH THAT
KIND OF MATCHUP.
>> TAKEN AWAY BY KOTZUR AND THE
FOUL ON FORT WAYNE.
>> BAKER BEING A LITTLE TOO
UNSELFISH ON THAT PLAY.
HERE IS THE PRESSURE BY KIWI
GARDNER, FINDS BAKER AND BAKER
GIVES IT BACK TO HIM.
MAYBE BAKER SHOULD HAVE TAKEN
THAT BUT EITHER WAY THEY'RE AT
THE FREE-THROW LINE.
LIKE THE HUSTLE IN THIS HALF
COURT.
>> MENTIONED EARLIER AND
THROUGHOUT THE SEASON AND THE
PLAYOFFS, MICHAEL THOMPSON,
YOUNGER BROTHER OF CLAY THOMPSON
FOR GOLDEN STATE.
>> PLAYED AGAINST THEIR DAD.
>> SAME WAY WITH THE CURRIES AS
WELL.
A FUN STORY LINE.
>> PLAYED AGAINST THEIR DAD,
TOO.
I DON'T HAVE TOO MANY GOOD
STORIES ABOUT EITHER ONE OF
THEM.
MICHAEL THOMPSON WAS A BIG
STRONG BRUISER WHO WOULD TAKE
MANY LIBERTIES AT BEATING ME UP
AND DEL CURRY, THE DAD, THERE
WERE PLENTY OF TIMES WHEN WE HAD
GAMES WON BUT LEFT DEL CURRY
OPEN AND HE CAME BACK TO MAKE
YOU PAY.
>> FINALLY FRISBY ABLE TO
CONVERT.
>> OFFENSIVE REBOUNDS ONCE
AGAIN.
MAD ANTS DOING A GREAT JOB ON
THE ROAD, ONE OF THE MAIN
REASONS WHY THEY'VE GOT A
ONE-POINT LEAD RIGHT NOW.
>> BAKER KNOCKS IT IN AND SANTA
CRUZ BACK IN FRONT.
>> NOW THAT'S JUST GRAVY BECAUSE
BAKER ISN'T KNOWN AS A PERIMETER
JUMP SHOOTER BUT HE IS AN ENERGY
GUY.
THAT TIME GOULBOURNE TRIED TO GO
FOR THE STEAL AND GAVE HIM AN
ANGLE TO THE BASKET AND
GOULBOURNE SHOULD HAVE STAYED
AND HELD HIS GROUND AND MADE
FRISBY SCORE OVER HIM.
>> THREE-POINTER OFF THE MARK.
ONE AND DONE FOR SANTA CRUZ.
>> BAKER KNOCKS DOWN PERIMETER
JUMP SHOTS, THEY'LL BE HAPPY
WITH THAT.
>> A WHISTLE AGAINST SANTA CRUZ
TAKES US TO BREAK.
FORT WAYNE IN A BACK AND FORTH
FIRST HALF LEADING BY ONE
MAURICE BAKER STEPPING OUT
KNOCKING IT IN.
TOMORROW'S CONVERSATION START
TONIGHT GET THE LATEST WORD IN
SPORTS ON LEADOFF COMING UP NEXT
ONLY ON CBS SPORTS NETWORK, THE
24-HOUR HOME OF CBS SPORTS.
>> WHAT DO YOU THINK BIG FELLOW,
RON HOWARD PRETTY IMPRESSIVE?
>> STARTED OFF STRONG IN THE
OFFENSIVE MAKING IT WHERE THE
DEFENSE LEAVES HIM ROOM.
HE KNOCKS DOWN THE PERIMETER
JUMP SHOT.
THEY HAVE TO ADJUST.
WHEN I SAY THEY, I MEAN SANTA
CRUZ BECAUSE WHEN LEFT OPEN,
THEY GET ROOM TO OPERATE, HE HAS
BEEN FIRING ON ALL CYLINDERS RON
HOWARD.
>> YOU TALK TO THE FOLKS AROUND
THIS FRANCHISE, NO WEAKNESSES.
THE FACT IS HE HAS A LOT OF
UPSIDE AND GOTTEN SMARTER THE
OLDER HE'S GOTTEN.
>> AND CONSEQUENTLY HIS GAME HAS
IMPROVED.
HE HAS BECOME MORE RELIABLE,
MORE DEPENDABLE.
MORE CONSISTENT AND THAT'S THE
COACH'S DREAM, TO PUT A GUY IN
AS WE SEE HIM KNOCKING DOWN ON
THE ONE RIGHT ON CUE.
THAT'S WHAT COACHES HOPE FOR
WHEN THEY PUT A GUY IN THE GAME.
THEY WANT TO KNOW WHAT THEY'RE
GOING TO GET OUT OF HIM NIGHT IN
AND NIGHT OUT AND RON HOWARD HAS
SHOWN THE STABILITY AND
CONSISTENCY THAT COACHES LOVE
WHEN THEY'RE OUT ON THE FLOOR.
>> THOMPSON SPLITS DEFENDERS.
COULDN'T GET IT TAP-IN FOR
GOULBOURNE.
>> NOBODY BLOCKING OUT FOR FORT
WAYNE.
PRETTY SURPRISING.
SUCH A GOOD REBOUNDING TEAM GOT
LANCE GOULBOURNE WITH THE
OFFENSIVE BOARD EIGHT POINTS,
EIGHT REBOUNDS.
>> NOW TONY MITCHELL CONVERTS
THE LAST PLAY, CRASOVER BY
THOMPSON AND LANCE GOULBOURNE
DOING WHAT HE DOES.
GOOD READ, GOOD TIMING AND THE
OTHER END, TONY MITCHELL MAKING
IT LOOK EASE AGREE THAT'S WHAT
HE DOES.
ROOKIE OF THE YEAR LAST YEAR WE
MENTIONED EARLIER IN THE GAME.
BACK-TO-BACK SLAM DUNK
CHAMPIONSHIPS FOR HIM AND HE IS
TWO YEARS IN THIS LEAGUE.
YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT ONE OF
THE MOSTE ELECTRIFYING TO WATCH.
HE IS NEAR THE TOP OF THE LIST.
>> A LIVE BODY CREATIVE IN THE
AIR, PHYSICALLY GIFTED.
>> TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HIS GAME
AT THIS LEVEL.
A PRODUCT OUT OF ALABAMA.
ELEVENTH LEADING SCORER IN THE
REGULAR SEASON IN THE D-LEAGUE.
BAKER LEFT IT SHORT.
GOT HIS OWN REBOUND.
AND NOW IN THE CORNER NEEDS SOME
HELP AND CALLS TIMEOUT WITH 4:41
IN THE SECOND.
AND SANTA CRUZ TRAILING BY FOUR.
>> WELL, WE MENTIONED TONY
MITCHELL AND HIS EXPLOITS.
COACH CALLS HIM A FERRARI.
INCREDIBLE ATHLETE AND REALLY
HAS BECOME THIS YEAR, IN HIS
SECOND SEASON IN THE LEAGUE, A
VERY COMPLETE PLAYER.
THE NIGHT BEFORE THE NBA ALL
STAR GAME, THE CONTEST IN NEW
ORLEANS AND WE MENTIONED FOR THE
SECOND YEAR IN A ROW, MITCHELL
WON THE TITLE BEATING RASHAD
JAMES IN THE FINAL ROUND.
PRETTY IMPRESSIVE STUFF.
>> YOU MENTIONED TWO YEARS IN A
ROW COMPETITIVE GUY WHO WANTS TO
GO OUT THERE AND PUT HIS BEST
FOOT FORWARD EVEN IN THOSE KINDS
OF SCENARIOS WHERE YOU ARE
PLAYING OR PERFORMING IN A DUNK
CONTEST.
WHAT I LIKE IS THE ADJUSTMENT HE
HAS MADE THIS YEAR.
LAST YEAR SHOT THE BALL CARE
FREE, THIS YEAR MAKING DECISIONS
OUT THERE ON THE FLOOR, IN OTHER
WORDS TURNING UP... OR PASSING
UP SOME GOOD SHOTS TO GET HIS
TEAMMATES INVOLVED.
PROBABLY SHOOTING ABOUT HALF AS
MANY SHOTS AS HE DID LAST YEAR.
BUT YET HE IS STILL ENGAGED,
STILL DOING THE OTHER THINGS OUT
ON THE FLOOR, SHOT SULKING.
VERY, VERY MATURE PLAYER FOR A
GUY WHO IS STILL EARLY IN HIS
CAREER.
>> SHOT CLOCK DOWN TO 12 HERE.
A RARE TURNOVER BY RON HOWARD.
46-42 WITH 4:14 IN THE SECOND
AND WEAL WILL GET A SEAT.
MITCHELL SEVEN POINTS THREE
BOARDS IN THIS FIRST HALF.
>> D-LEAGUE FINALS CAME ON HERE
IN SANTA CRUZ.
HEAD TO FORT WAYNE FOR THE
SECOND GAME.
IF A NECESSARY GAME THREE WOULD
BE IN FORT WAYNE.
THE ONLY HOME GAME THE WARRIORS
WILL GET HERE.
CERTAINLY WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE
AND SEE CURRY THERE.
WE TALKED ABOUT HIS 25 POINTS
PER GAME IN THE POSTSEASON, 20
POINTS IN THE REGULAR SEASON.
CURRY HAS YET TO SCORE.
YET THEY'RE ONLY DOWN BY FOUR.
>> A GOOD SIGN THE FACT THAT
HASN'T BEEN INVOLVED AND YOU
FIND YOURSELF DOWN ONLY FOUR.
SO YOU ARE HOPING THAT IN GAMES
PAST WHEN HE HAS GONE THROUGH
HIS DROUGHTS, HE ALWAYS SEEMS TO
GET HIMSELF OUT OF THEM AND
ALWAYS FINISHES GAMES OUT STRONG
NO MATTER HOW THE MIDDLE OF THE
GAME HAS GONE FOR HIM.
>> GOOD PLAY, HOW ABOUT THE
PASS?
46-44.
>> A TURNOVER.
TAKEAWAY TO THE RIM.
>> TWO WICK TURNOVERS FOR RON
HOWARD.
SOMETHING YOU DON'T SEE THAT
OFTEN AND NOW SANTA CRUZ PICKING
UP FULL 13 FOR CAMERON JONES,
TOUGH SHOT AND IN BY MITCHELL.
>> THAT'S MITCHELL.
THE THINGS HE CAN DO TO CONTORT.
THE FACT THAT HE HAS GREAT
VISION IN TRAFFIC.
HE CAN FIND THE RIM WITH ALL
THOSE BODIES IN THAT TIGHT
SPACE.
VERY, VERY IMPRESSIVE.
TONY MITCHELL PLAYS WITH A HIGH
DEGREE DIFFICULTY.
>> HERE AGAIN MITCHELL.
>> CAN'T STOP THE BALL.
HE TRIED TO BUT MITCHELL SLIDES
AROUND AND OVER, WHATEVER THE
SITUATION CALLS FOR, TONY
MITCHELL IS SO GIFT, THAT HE
JUST COMES UP WITH WHATEVER IS
NECESSARY, THE KNACK THAT HE HAS
FOR MAKING TOUGH BUCKETS LOOK SO
EASY.
>> COACH HENRY WANTED TO SAY HE
IMPROVED A LOT ON DEFENSE.
ALWAYS BEEN A GOOD ONE ON ONE
DEFENDER PICKING UP THE TWO
PRINCIPLES WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO
DO, MAKE IMPROVEMENTS IN THAT
AREA.
I'VE BEEN AROUND YOU LONG ENOUGH
TO KNOW AND WE ARE TALKING ABOUT
THESE GUYS TAKING THE NEXT STEP,
USUALLY IT'S ABOUT DEFENSE.
>> NO QUESTION ABOUT IT.
THERE ARE VERY FEW TEAMS IN THE
NBA LEVEL THAT ARE GOING TO COME
IN AND ASK YOU TO SCORE 20-25
POINTS A GAME.
YOU ARE GOING TO BE ASKED TO
COME IN AND DEFEND, REBOUND,
PLAY WITH ENERGY, BE A GOOD
LOCKER ROOM GUY.
YOU ARE GOING TO BE ASKED TO DO
THE SMALL THINGS.
SO THE MORE YOU MAKE PEACE WITH
THAT EARLY, THE BETTER OFF YOU
ARE GOING TO BE AND THE CHANCE
OF STAYING AND STICKING AT THE
NEXT LEVEL ARE ENHANCED AS WELL.
>> GOLDEN-- BOLDIN AND HIS
ABILITY TO SOLIDIFY THINGS.
IT'S REALLY NOT A SURPRISE TO
SEE THEM IN THE FINALS THIS
YEAR.
>> NICE PIECE YOU MENTIONED AS
CONNER HENRY SAID, HE HAS TWO
BIG ON THE FOUR AND TWO BIGS ON
THE FIVE AND A BUNCH OF
PERIMETER PLAYERS THAT MAKES US
VERY VERSATILE AND THE ABILITY
TO ADJUST TO THE OPPONENT'S
GAME.
IN OTHER WORDS IF YOU ARE
PLAYING A BIG TEAM, THEY'VE GOT
ANSWERS FOR THAT.
IF YOU ARE PLAYING A
PERIMETER-ORIENTED TEAM, THEY'VE
GOT PEOPLE TO COVER THEM AS
WELL.
THIS IS A VERSATILE TEAM WHEN IN
YEARS' PAST IT PROBABLY HASN'T
BEEN.
>> MITCHELL MISSED FIVE ON A
THREE OUT OF BOUNDS.
>> THREE FOULS AND NO POINTS YET
THEY'RE ONLY DOWN TWO.
IT'S THE NBA D-LEAGUE FINALS
PRESENTED BY TACO BELL ON CBS
SPORTS NETWORK GAME ONE ON THE
BEST OF THREE.
COMING UP AT HALFTIME, WE BREAK
DOWN THE FIRST HALF AND NEWS
FROM AROUND THE NBA B-LEAGUE
COMING UP AT HALFTIME.
SETH CURRY, THEY WON THE GAME
STRUGGLED IN GAME TWO, THEY LOST
GAME THREE 28 POINTS, 12 OF 21.
THEY WON THE GAME AND HERE HE IS
TONIGHT IN THE FINALS THREE
FOULS ON THE BENCH YET TO SCORE
AND THEY TRAIL BY TWO.
>> SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO BE
CONCERNED WITH IF YOU ARE CASEY
HILL BUT HE MADE A GREAT POINT
WHEN HE WAS TALKING TO THEM,
THEY'VE WON GAMES THROUGHOUT THE
COURSE OF THE SEASON WHERE SETH
CURRY HAS NOT PLAYED WELL OR
SHOT THE BALL WELL.
IT IS NOT THE END ALL OR BE ALL.
YOU CERTAINLY HOPE AND WISH HE
PLAYS WELL AND CONTRIBUTES BUT
THEY'VE FOUND OTHER WAYS TO WIN.
NOW THAT BEING SAID, TEAR GOING
TO TRY EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO
GET HIM INVOLVED IN THE SECOND
HALF AND GET SOME GOOD WIDE OPEN
LOOKS EARLY ON AND GET HIM
INVOLVED BACK IN THIS BALL GAME.
>> MAD ANTS,
A FOUL ON THE WARRIORS.
STAY PUT D-LEAGUE ON THE GO,
DOWNLOAD THE APP WITH THE
SCHEDULES AND LIVE GAME ACTION.
IT A MUST ON YOUR DEVICE OF YOUR
CHOICE.
>> WE'VE HAD THIS CONVERSATION
EVERY TIME YOU DO THAT AND YOU
KNOW IT'S ON MY PHONE.
FRISBY 79% FOUL SHOOTER BUT
NUMBER TWO ON THE D-LEAGUE ON
THE CBS SPORTS NETWORK.
OPPORTUNITY FOR A SECOND YEAR IN
A ROW TO DO THE FINALS HERE AND
WE EXPECT THIS ONE TO GO THREE.
THE TWO EVENLY MATCHED TEAMS
EVEN WHEN YOU LOOK AT ONE SEED
AGAINST THE SIX, THE SANTA CRUZ
HAS REALLY CAUGHT FIRE HERE IN
THE REGULAR SEASON AND INTO THE
PLAYOFFS AND GOULBOURNE A BIG
REASON AS HE GOES STRONG AND
IT'S OFFENSIVE FOUL ON
GOULBOURNE.
>> A LOT OF CONFUSION ON THAT
SIDE LINE A LOT OF CONFUSION
HERE SITTING NEXT TO YOU, BRENT.
I'M CONFUSED, BUT NOT A BAD CALL
THERE.
IT WAS HIS OWN TEAMMATE THAT HE
GOT TANGLED UP WITH.
>> MITCHELL ANOTHER TOUGH SHOT
HALFWAY DOWN CLEARED BY JOHNSON.
SO NOW IT'S GOING TO BE A FOUL
ON... WILL IT BE JOHNSON OR
MITCHELL?
THEY'RE GOING TO GET JOHNSON AND
ANOTHER QUESTIONABLE CALL FOR
THE HOME FANS HERE.
FANS CERTAINLY LETTING THE
REFEREES HEAR IT.
MITCHELL APPLYING PRESSURE.
THAT'S A BASKETBALL MOVE.
>> ALL HE IS DOING IS TRYING TO
CREATE SOME SPACE BUT HE NOT
THROWING HIS ELBOWS.
HE IS JUST MOVING AND PIVOTING
WITH THE BALL IN HIS HANDS
UNLESS THEY'VE OUTLAWED THAT
WHICH I DON'T THINK THEY HAVE, I
DON'T SEE WHAT WAS WRONG WITH
THAT LAST CHANGE.
>> TONY MITCHELL AT THE LINE.
>> OTHERWISE IF YOU DON'T ALLOW
SOMEBODY TO MOVE AND PIVOT, THEN
YOU ARE JUST ALLOWING EVERY
DEFENSIVE PLAYER TO BE OVERLY
AGGRESSIVE AND NO OFFENSIVE
PLAYER HAS ANY ROOM TO PLAY.
THE OFFENSIVE PLAYER HAS THE
RIGHT TO CREATE A LITTLE ROOM
FOR HIMSELF SO HE CAN OPERATE
AND MOVE.
>> SOSM SON HAS BEEN QUIET THIS
FIRST HALF KIWI OFF THE BOUNCE.
CAUGHT IN THE AIR AND JUMP BALL.
FRISBY OUTSTANDING DEFENSE A
DIMINUTIVE BALL PLAYER.
>> THE INABILITY TO FINISH IN
TRAFFIC.
BIG STRONG OUTSTRETCHED ARMS,
PARTICULARLY IN THE PAINTED
AREA.
A TOUGH FINISH FOR NUMBER 17.
>> KEY IS 5'7" AND HE IS 6'8".
>> I LIKE FORT WAYNE ON THIS
ONE.
>> I'LL HAVE TO AGREE WITH YOU
ON THAT.
HOWEVER THAT BEING SAID, THE TAP
ISN'T ALWAYS WON IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE CIRCLE.
IT'S SOMETIMES WON ON THE SIDE.
BOULDIN ON THE THREE, YOU BET
YOU.
HE HASN'T GOTTEN MANY CLEAN
LOOKS BUT THE 37% THREE-POINT
SHOOTERS KNOCKS ONE DOWN.
>> BOULDIN SAW CAMERON JONES
PLAYING OFF HIM AND IT WAS
BOULDIN TO SHOOT LONG RANGE
THREE.
>> ANOTHER FOIFS SHOT AND
TURNOVER BY SANTA CRUZ.
THEY'VE GOTTEN A BIT COLD HERE
AS WE GO UNDER A MINUTE.
FRISBY BACKING DOWN.
TURNS AND PUTS IT IN.
>> GOOD MOVE BY FRISBY.
YOU CAN SEE THEY ALLOWED
GOULBOURNE TO GO ONE ON ONE.
SEE IF CAN STOP HIM ONE ON ONE.
NO HELP CAME THAT TIME.
FRISBY HAD THREE OR FOUR
DRIBBLES.
A LOT OF ROOM OPERATE.
>> NINE SECOND DIFFERENCE GAME
AND SHOT.
25 SECONDS LEFT IN THE SECOND
QUARTER AND AN EIGHT-POINT
ADVANTAGE LONG THREE MITCHELL.
OFF THE MARK.
REBOUND GOULBOURNE AND NOW 13
SECONDS SHOT CLOCK UP.
KIWI IN A KICK, THOMPSON ON A
THREE AND HE NAILS IT.
>> GREAT BALL MOVEMENT.
YOU THOUGHT THE IDEA WAS TO GET
THE BALL GOING TO THE BASKET BUT
THEY UP OUT OF THE PERIMETER.
HOW ABOUT THAT ANSWER.
>> ROJAS FOR THE THREE.
DESPERATION AT THE BUZZER.
BOTH TEAMS TRADING SHOTS AT THE
CLOSING.
GAME ONE OF THE D-LEAGUE FINALS
IN SANTA CRUZ WITH THE MAD ANTS
LEADING THE WARRIORS 59-51.
>> IN TRANSITION INSTEAD OF
TAKING THE PERIMETER JUMP SHOT,
THEY FIND A SPOT OF THREES AND
ON THE OTHER END, A QUICK ANSWER
BACK AND FORTH HERE IN SANTA
CRUZ.
BACK HERE AT HALFTIME GAME ONE
OF THE DLOOG FINALS TRNTED BY
TACO BELL.
GAME ONE BETWEEN THE FORT WAYNE
MAD ANTS AND THE SANTA CRUZ
WARRIORS.
TIME TO BRING YOU JEFF POTTER,
THE PRESIDENT OF THE FORT WAYNE
MAD ANTS BEST RECORD IN THE
REGULAR SEASON, GOT THE TOP SEED
IN THE PLAYOFFS.
JEFFI FIRST OFF FOR A FRANCHISE
THAT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR SEVEN
YEARS, YOU STRUGGLED FOR THE
FIRST FIVE YEARS.
MADE THE PLAYOFFS LAST YEAR.
TO MAKE THE FINALS THIS YEAR,
HOW GRATIFYING HAS THIS BEEN?
>> EXTREMELY GRATIFYING.
YOU ARE RIGHT.
WE HAD SOME LEAN EARLY YEARS
WITH THE MAD ANTS AND TO SEE IT
KIND OF GRADUALLY HIT THESE PAST
FEW YEARS AND ESPECIALLY THE
LAST TWO, IT'S BEEN GREAT AND
HAPPY FOR MYSELF, MY FAMILY, OUR
STAFF BUT MOSTLY HAPPY FOR FORT
WAYNE FANS AND WE'VE GOT A GREAT
LOYAL GROUP OF PEOPLE AND I
THINK THEY'RE ALL WATCHING
TOGETHER AT A PLACE CALLED CRAZY
FIN, AND YOU KNOW, WE COULDN'T
DO IT WITHOUT THEM.
THEY HAVE BEEN FANTASTIC.
I'M REALLY HAPPY WE'VE HAD THIS
SUCCESS.
>> HOW EXCITED ARE YOU TO SEE
HOW THE MAD ANTS FANS SHOW UP
FOR GAME TWO WHERE YOU WILL HOST
IN FORT WAYNE SATURDAY NIGHT?
>> I'M REALLY EXCITED AND I
THINK WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A
GOOD CROWD AND I THINK WE CAN DO
EVEN BETTER.
WE ARE WORKING HARD TO PACK THAT
PLACE AND NOT MANY TIMES IN THE
FRANCHISE LIFE DO YOU GET TO
PLAY FOR A CHAMPIONSHIP.
AND WE NEED AS MANY PEOPLE
THERE.
I THINK WE'LL SEE THEM.
>> CONNER HENRY TALKS ABOUT THE
VETERANS.
RON HOWARD BECAME THE ALL TIME
LEADING SCORER IN D-LEAGUE
HISTORY.
HE IS SORT OF THE FACE OF THIS
FRANCHISE.
CAN YOU TALK ABOUT WHAT HOWARD
HAS MEANT TO THE COMMUNITY AND
TO THIS TEAM?
>> HE'S BEEN FANTASTIC, YOU
KNOW.
I DON'T EVEN THINK HE IS THE
FACE OF OUR TEAM.
I THINK HE IS THE FACE OF THE
NBA D-LEAGUE.
HE IS A GUY WHO IS A GREAT
PERSON ON THE COURT.
HE IS A GREAT PERSON OFF THE
COURT AND HE ALL THE COMMUNITY
EVENTS A ASK HIM TO BE AT, HE IS
AT.
THIS IS A GUY WHO CAME FROM
NOTHING.
HE CAME TO AN OPEN TRYOUT AND
JUST WORKED HIS WAY UP AND TODAY
TO BE NAMED M.V.P. OF THE
D-LEAGUE.
I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER FOR HIM
AND HIS FAMILY.
MY ONLY THING NEXT FOR HIM IS
FOR SOMEONE TO GET SMART IN THE
NBA AND CALL HIM UP BECAUSE HE
IS A FANTASTIC PLAYER, AN NBA
LEVEL PLAYER AND DESERVES A
SHOT.
>> THAT'S WHAT HEAD COACH CONNER
HENRY SAYS.
WRAPPING UP THIS UP, HOW ABOUT
THE JOB CONNER HAS DONE HIS
FIRST YEAR AT THE HELL SNM.
>> CONNER HAS BEEN FANTASTIC.
WE HAD SOME POSITIVE MOMENTUM
FROM LAST SEASON AND HE HAS
TAKEN THAT AND RUN WITH IT.
THE WAY HE PREPARES.
I KNEW HE WOULD BE VERY PREPARED
BUT THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS
THAT GO ON IN A D-LEAGUE SEASON
FOR A COACH.
ASSIGNMENTS, CALLUPS, PLAYERS
COMING AND GOING AND HE HAS
TAKEN IT ALL WITH GREAT POISE
AND GOTTEN THE GUYS TO PLAY FOR
HIM AND AT THIS LEVEL THAT #-S A
HUGE KEY AND WHAT A DESERVING
HONOR TO BE COACH OF THE YEAR
FOR CONNER.
I'M VERY, VERY HAPPY FOR HIM.
>> THE PRESIDENT OF THE MAD ANTS
JEFF POTTER.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND BEST
OF LUCK THROUGH THE REST OF THE
FINALS.
>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
GO ANTS.
>> GAME ONE OF THE NBA D-LEAGUE
FINALS AT HALFTIME BETWEEN THE
MAD ANTS AND THE WARRIORS.
MORE TO COME AFTER THIS BREAK.
SHATTER THE BEACH BOARD WALK
HERE AT SANTA CRUZ.
SURF CITY FOR GAME ONE OF THE
D-LEAGUE FINALS PRESENTED BY
TACO BELL.
EIGHT-POINT LEAD FOR FORT WAYNE
ON THE ROAD AGAINST SANTA CRUZ.
I COULD GO ON AND ON ABOUT YOU.
BUT HOW ABOUT FORT WAYNE AND
SETTING A TEMPO AND MAKING THE
STATEMENT THE FIRST HALF OF GAME
ONE.
>> THEY STARTED OFF PLAYING WELL
KNOCKING DOWN TER JT--
ALL OF THE SECOND QUARTER I
THOUGHT IT FORCED SANTA CRUZ
INTO SOME UNCOMFORTABLE
POSITIONS.
>> CONSIDERING SETH CURRY OVER
TO NO POINTS AND THREE FOULS AND
YOU ARE STILL VERY MUCH A PART
OF THE GAME.
ON SOME LEVEL THAT'S GOT TO BE A
SILVER LINING FOR THE WARRIORS.
>> ONE OF THE THINGS THAT YOU
CAN GO INTO THE LOCKER ROOM AND
TILL BUILD ON KNOWING YOUR BEST
SCORER HABIT REALLY GOTTEN
HIMSELF INVOLVED AND YET OTHER
GUYS HAVE DONE ENOUGH TO KEEP
YOU IN THE BALL GAME.
THE IDEAL SITUATION NOW IS FOR
HIM TO GET BACK ENGAGED IN THE
GAME AND HOPEFULLY LEAD TO YOU
VICTORY.
YOU ARE ONLY EIGHT SO YOU ARE
WITHIN STRIKING DISTANCE.
>> RON HOWARD GOT THIS GAME TO A
TREMENDOUS START AND TONY
MITCHELL PICKS UP FROM THERE.
>> ROWN HOWARD HIT A COUPLE
QUICK EARLY BUCKETS.
CAMERON JONES DEFENDER GIVING
HIM ROOM TO OPERATE.
THERE IT IS AGAIN.
HE IS GOING TO MAKE AWE PAY AND
IN TRANSITION BOULDIN FINDS RON
HOWARD AGAIN SO THIS WAS A LOT
OF RON HOWARD IN THE FIRST HALF.
SANTA CRUZ THE HOME TEAM, THE
PENETRATOR CAMERON JONES, THE
ABILITY TO GET TO THE BASKET AND
FINISH HAS BEEN KEY FOR THEM
UNTIL GUYS LIKE SETH CURRY GET
THEMSELVES INVOLVED.
>> 59-51.
DEFINITELY ONE THING THAT HAS TO
STAND OUT IS THE PERFECT NUMBER
AT THE FREE-THROW STRIPE FOR THE
WARRIORS.
>> HOME COOKING, THE ADVANTAGE
OF FRIENDLY RIMS.
YOU'VE SHOT FIVE MORE.
THEY'VE BEEN AGGRESSIVE.
THEY HAVE TO LIMIT THE OTHER
TEAM TO ONE OFFENSIVE REBOUND.
>> TWO ON THE GLASS FOR FORT
WAYNE.
EIGHT-POINT LEAD FOR FORT WAYNE
WITH THE SECOND HALF COMING UP
FROM SANTA CRUZ.
59-51 AS WE START THE THIRD IN
GAME ONE OF THE SEMIFINALS.
JOIN US SATURDAY FOR GAME TWO OF
THE D-LEAGUE FINALS AS THE SCENE

10:30 P.M. EASTERN RIGHT HERE ON
CBS SPORTS NETWORK.
THE 24-HOUR HOME OF CBS SPORTS,

D-LEAGUE FINALS.
YOU TALK ABOUT PLAYERS BEING
INVOLVED OFF THE COURT.
A LOT OF GOOD SCORERS.
>> SEVEN ELEMENTARY AND MIDDLE
SCHOOLS IN THE SANTA CRUZ
DISTRICT JOIN THE WARRIORS AGAIN
THIS SEASON IN A PROGRAM CALLED
"READ TO ACHIEVE" WHICH PROVIDES
INCENTIVE AND ENCOURAGEMENT TO
HELP LEARN A LIFE LONG LOVE OF
LITERACY.
THEY'VE READ NEARLY A BILLION
WORDS UNDER THE "READ TO
ACHIEVE" UMBRELLA.
PRETTY IMPRESS GLIF VERY.
OUTSTANDING STORY.
SANTA CRUZ LEAD THE GALAXY IN
DOING THINGS IN THE COMMUNITY.
>> VERY ACTIVE IN THIS COMMUNITY
AND THEY'VE BEEN EMBRACED BY
THIS COMMUNITY HAVE REALLY DONE
THEIR SHARE TO NOT ONLY MAKE
SURE THAT THAT RELATIONSHIP
FLOURISHES NOT IN A SHORT PERIOD
OF TIME BUT IN A LONG TIME, IN
THE FUTURE.
A VERY CITING SIM BY ON THETIC
RELATIONSHIP HIF HIEF SYMBIOTIC
RELATIONSHIP.
>> NO POINTS, AVERAGING 25 IN
THE POST SEASON AFTER AVERAGING
20 PER GAME IN THE REGULAR
SEASON ONE OF THE BEST IN THE
D-LEAGUE.
HE HAS IT RIGHT HERE.
PULLUP JUST INSIDE THE NO-FLY
FREE-THROW LINE AND HE IS 0-3.
HERE TAKING A DIFFERENT APPROACH
GETTING HIM OFF THE BASKETBALL
TO COME UP WITH SOME SCREENS
THAT TIME WAS A DOWNSCREEN FOR
HIM.
AND HE WAS UNABLE TO KNOCK DOWN
THAT JUMPER BUT YOU CAN SEE HOW
COACH CASEY HILL HAS DECIDED TO
GET HIS BEST PLAYER INVOLVED
EARLY HERE IN THE SECOND HALF.
>> NWAELELE OVER TO CAMERON
JONES.
THE FIRST HALF TO JONES.
NWAELELE TRIES FOR THE THREE,
TOO STRONG AND TRACKED DOWN BY
GOULBOURNE.
>> ONE OF EIGHT FOR THE
WARRIORS.
NWAELELE JONES, CURRY, AND
KNOCKED DOWN HERE BY CAMERON
JONES SO MAKE IT 59-53.
>> NOT KNOWN FOR HIS PERIMETER
SHOT, THE SCOUTING REPORT IS TO
LET HIM HAVE IT.
WELL WITH THAT ROOM HE HAS BEEN
MAKING THEM PAY THUS FAR.
CAMERON JONES SHOWING HIS RANGE
WITH 15 SO FAR IN THIS GAME.
>> BACK TO SANTA CRUZ HERE DOWN
SIX.
EARLY MOMENTS OF THE THIRD.
WHO IS GOING TO TAKE THE ONE
GAME LEAD IN THE BEST OF THREE
D-LEAGUE FINALS.
GAME ONE IN SANTA CRUZ.
GAME TWO SATURDAY IN FORT WAYNE.
IF NECESSARY GAME THREE MONDAY
ALSO IN FORT WAYNE.
THE ENTIRE FINALS RIGHT HERE ON
CBS SPORTS NETWORK.
FIVE TO SHOOT, CURRY TO
NWAELELE.
STRIPPED ON THE WAY OUT BY
FRISBY.
THEY GET IT BACK BUT THEY DON'T
GET IT OFF.
>> AND YOU WONDER IF IT CHANGED
POSSESSIONS IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN
A FRESH SHOT CLOCK HERE FOR
SANTA CRUZ AND THE OFFICIALS GET
TOGETHER TO HAVE THAT
DISCUSSION.
THIS SHOULD BE SANTA CRUZ BALL
AND A FRESH SHOT CLOCK.
>> SEE WHAT THE OFFICIALS COME
UP WITH.
TAKE A LOOK AT THAT LAST PLAY
AGAIN BOWELIN PLAYING SETH
CURRY, NWAELELE ON THE
PENETRATION.
>> THAT ENOUGH FOR POSSESSION?
>> I THAT'S WHAT THE REFEREES
ARE DECIDING RIGHT NOW.
>> THERE'S NWAELELE FRISBY WITH
THE SLAP ON THE BALL.
>> I STAND CORRECTED.
Y DON'T THINK THEY EVER GOT IT
BACK.
>> I DON'T THINK THEY WERE ABLE
TO HOLD ON TO IT LONG ENOUGH FOR
IT TO BE CONSIDERED A POAGHTS
BUT THE SURPRISE CALL.
WARRIOR BALL.
>> JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU'VE
GOT IT FIGURED OUT, CONNER HENRY
DOESN'T PUT UP A HUGE FIGHT BUT
SANTA CRUZ DEFINITELY GETS A
BREAK HERE.
THEY GET POSSESSION WITH 23 ON
THE SHOT CLOCK DOWN SIX EARLY IN
THE THIRD QUARTER.
CURRY PULLS BACK, SHORT, 0-4,
REBOUNDED BY FORT WAYNE.
ROJAS POWER AND FRISBY.
JONES DRAWS THE BUMP.
S.
>> THE LAST EXCHANGE ON THE
OTHER END, PRETTY GOOD DEFENSE
BY THE MAD ANTS ON SETHRY.
YOU CAN SEE THEIR APPROACH WHEN
HE IS COMING OFF THE SCREEN.
THEY ARE NOT GOING TO LET HIM
CURN THE CORNER FREELY.
YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A DEFENDER
IN HIS FACE EVEN IF IT IS A
TALLER SLOWER PLAYER.
THE IDEA IS TO CONTEST THE
PERIMETER JEETS AND LIMIT HIS
OPEN LOOK.
>> MCKINNEY JONES IN AND OUT IN
THE FIRST IT TOOK JONES A WHILE
TO GET GOING THIS YEAR AND COACH
HENRY SAID IT WAS MY FAULT.
AFTER THE FIRST 15 GAMES I HAD
TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE HIM
SUCCESSFUL WITHIN OUR OFFENSE.
>> THE QUESTION IS, IS HE A
POINT GUARD?
IS HE A TWO-GUARD?
HIS SKILL SET IS UNIQUE.
WE TALKED ABOUT IT EARLIER.
NOT ONLY DOES HE HAVE RANGE BUT
HE CAN GET TO THE BASKET AND HE
SHOOTS THE MEDIUM RANGE JUMP
SHOTS FROM STAND STILL POSITION
AND OFF THE DRIBBLE, WELL
ROUNDED OFFENSIVE PLAYER THIS
YOUNG MAN OUT OF MIAMI IS.
>> THREE ON THE WAY AND IN AND
THERE YOU GO.
SADIEL ROJAS, THEY CALL HIM THE
WOLVERINE.
TWO YEARS AGO HAD A HORRIBLE
BACK INJURY, BROKE HIS BACK AND
THREE WEEKS LATER HE WAS PLAYING
BASKETBALL AGAIN.
MINOR MIRACLE.
>> I CAN TELL YOU AS SOMEONE WHO
HAS HAD BACK SURGERY, THREE
WEEKS IS UNBELIEVABLY QUICK TO
GET BACK OUT ON THE FLOOR, TALK
ABOUT HIM HAVING TEACH HIMSELF
ALL OVER AGAIN HOW TO WALK.
HAD TO REALLY START FROM SCRATCH
AND IF YOU THINK ABOUT WHERE HE
STARTED TO WHERE HE IS NOW, WHAT
A JOURNEY.
>> BUT SAY START FROM SCRATCH, I
THINK ONE TO TWO TO YEAR PROCESS
NOT THREE WEEKS.
>> SUCH A SMALL CONFINED PERIOD
OF TIME.
IT IS PRETTY AMAZING.
A LOT OF THINGS CAN GO WRONG
WITH A BACK.
FOR HIM TO BE ABLE TO PLAY AT
THAT TIME WELL SO SOON.
>> AND WOLVERINE OF COURSE
REFERRING TO X-MEN.
>> EXACTLY.
>> ARE YOU AN X-MEN FAN?
>> I AM NOT BUT THAT DOESN'T
MEAN I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS GOING
ON?
I LIKE TO KEEP ABREAST OF THE
VERBAGE AND TERMINOLOGY BUT I
CANNOT CONFESS AND TELL YOU I'VE
SEEN ANY OF THEM.
>> THERE IS THE DRIBBLE DRIVE
REACH ON FRISBY.
CAMERON JONES GETS STEAMED UP A
LITTLE BIT, TWISTED THE ANKLE
PERHAPS.
>> LOOKED LIKE HE GOT STEPPED
ON.
MISSES BOTH FREE-THROWS AND
THOSE ARE THE FIRST TWO MISSES
FOR SANTA CRUZ 16-18.
>> BOULDIN OFF THE MARK, OUT OF
BOUNDS.
AND NWAELELE GETTING WHISTLE.
>> NWAELELE TRYING TO BLOCK OUT
RON HOWARD.
X ACTUALLY WHAT HAPPENED ON THAT
LAST EXCHANGE HOWARD WAS TRYING
TO CRASH THE BOARDS.
NWAELELE DOING HIS BEST TO KEEP
RON HOWARD AWAY FROM THE GLASS.
>> 10-POINT LEAD, THREE MINUTES
DEEP IN THE THIRD.
A JERKY START TO THE QUARTER AND
BOULDIN TOO STRONG ON THE THREE.
>> A LOT OF MOVEMENT THAT TIME
IN THE EXCHANGE BY FORT WAYNE.
MATT BOULDIN HAD NO OPTION BUT
TO GET THAT SHOT UP.
GUYS AROUND HIM WERE NOT MAKING
THEMSELVES AVAILABLE.
>> THOMPSON TRYING TO GET HIS
OFFENSE GOING AND KNOCKS ONE
DOWN.
>> TOUGH SHOT BY MICHAEL
THOMPSON MIDDLE OF THE LANE WITH
A DEFENDER ALL OVER HIM, NICE
SOFT TOUCH.
>> CORNER TOO STRONG FROM ROJAS.
HERE COMES CURRY.
COUNT EIGHT.
>> SANTA CRUZ GETTING THE STOPS.
WHAT THEY HAVE TO DID NOW IS
CONVERT ON THE OTHER END.
THAT'S A GOOD START.
>> FIRST POINT OF THE NIGHT FOR
SETH CURRY.
>> BOULDIN ON HIM.
TAKES IT BEHIND HIS BACK.
GOES DOWN THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE
LANE OR SHOULD SAY TAKES IT WITH
HIS RIGHT HAND DOWN THE MIDDLE
OF THE LANE.
QUESTION IS, WILL THIS BUCKET
AND POTENTIAL FREE-THROW GET HIM
GOING AND INVOLVED IN THIS GAME?
>> 63-58.
SANTATIGHTENING THINGS UP.
GAME ONE WILL BE THEIR ONLY GAME
ON THIS HOME COURT.
FRISBY BACKING DOWN KOTZUR AND
THE FOUL ON KEVIN KOTZUR WHICH
BRINGS ME TO THE POINT, OF
COURSE WE HAVEN'T SEEN... HE IS
ON THE BENCH IN THE NBA PLAYOFF.
A LOT... HE HAS YET TO GET
THINGS GOING HERE TONIGHT.
>> WE SAW HIM IN THE LAST SERIES
STARTING OFF GAMES VERY WELL.
HIS TEAMMATES PENETRATION, NICE
SOFT HANDS, CATCHING EVERYTHING
THROWN AT HIM AN ABLE TO FINISH
QUICKLY IN THE LAST SERIES
AGAINST RIO GRAND VALLEY.
TONIGHT DIFFERENT STORY.
HASN'T REALLY FOUND RHYTHM YET
ON THE OFFENSIVE SIDE OF THE
FLOOR.
TRYING TO MAKE SURE THEY LIMIT
THE END, NO OFFENSIVE REBOUND
FOR FORT WAYNE MOVING FORWARD.
THAT'S WHAT KOTZUR'S JOB IS
WHILE HE IS IN THERE.
BOTH GUYS WITH GOLDEN STATE FOR
THE NBA PLAYOFFS SO SERVICE NOT
AVAILABLE FOR THIS NBA FINALS,
NBA D-LEAGUE FINALS AND CURRY
ANOTHER BUNT UNDERNEATH AND THE
ANSWER THOUGH FOR MAD ANTS IN
ROJAS.
>> HOW ABOUT THAT DISH BY RON
HOWARD AS WELL, FINDING ROJAS IN
A CROWDED LANE?
SHOT OFF THE MARK AND ONE AND
DONE FOR NWAELELE.
67-60.
>> AND YOU'RE RIGHT.
THAT'S THE CALL.
BACK OVER TO SANTA CRUZ.
RATHER IT'S AN OFFENSIVE FOUL.
SEVEN-POINT GAME.
7:15 IN THE THIRD FORT WAYNE
LEADING THE ALL TIME SERIES.
OUT OF 28 AND 16 19 AT THE
STRIPE.
>> PICK AND ROLL, TRYING TO GET
HIM OPEN ON THE OFFENSIVE END.
>> ALEXANDER WHEELING IN THE
LANE AND CAN'T FINISH IT.
MAD ANTS ON THE WAY.
>> FRISBY A TOUGH PLAYER TO MOVE
IN THAT LANE WHEN HE GETS
ANCHORED IN THERE, PRETTY SOLID.
TOUGH TO ROOT HIM OUT AND TWO
SHOTS FOR MATT BOULDIN.
>> BACK TO THE LAST BASKET AND
TAKE A LOOK AT RON HOWARD, HEAD
UP GIVES THE BALL TO BOULDIN.
TAKES THE DRIVE, GETS TO THE
FOUL-LINE RON HOWARD REALLY IS
THE ENGINE THAT STARTS
EVERYTHING.
WE SAW HIM A COUPLE PLAYS
EARLIER, A NICE PASS INSIDE TO
ROJAS.
THE NISH YAITOR OF THE OFFENSE.
GREAT FEEL FOR THE GAME.
HAS FIVE ASSISTS RIGHT NOW DOES
RON HOWARD.
>> 68-60 AT 6:39 IN THE THIRD.
JONES, NWAELELE, ONE DRIBBLE
SHOT, PARTIALLY BLOCKED AND HERE
COME THE MAD ANTS AGAIN.
>> GOT TO STOP THE BALL.
RON HOWARD BIG FIRST HALF.
HANDFUL OF KEY VETERANS ON THIS
TEAM AFTER THE FIRST ROUND.
TWO IN THE FINALS THIS YEAR.
MCKINNEY JONES SHORT ON A THREE.
REBOUNDED BY CAMERON JONES.
CURRY TURNED IT DOWN.
BACK TO JONES.
AND BACK TO CURRY.
SHOT CLOCK AT 10.
CURRY SHORT ON A THREE, REBOUND
NWAELELE.
STRIPPED AND FOULED BY ROJAS.
GIVE CREDIT TO MATT BOULDIN FOR
HANGING IN THERE ON THE
DEFENSIVE END OF THE FLOOR.
MAD ANTS ONE OF THE REASONS
THEY'RE UP BIG LOOKING FOR ONE
ANOT ER.
ROJAS WITH THE FINISH.
NBA D-LEAGUE FINAL GAME ONE
PRESENTED BY TACO BELL.
A RECORD BREAKING ONE OUT OF
EVERY THREE NBA PLAYERS HAS
PLAYED IN THE NBA D-LEAGUE.
CHECK THEM OUT AT
NBA.COM/D-LEAGUE/TRACKER.
SETH CURRY HAS HAD A COUPLE
CALLUPS THIS YEAR.
MOST RECENT WLT CAVALIERS AND
SANTA CRUZ HAPPY TO HAVE HIM
HERE IN THE PLAYOFFS AND ON INTO
THE FINALS.
HE HAS BEEN QUIET HERE TONIGHT A
COUPLE OF BUCKETS IN A ROW ABOUT
THE MID POINT OF THIS THIRD
QUARTER.
THIS QUARTER, ENTERTAINING FIRST
HALF.
THE THIRD QUARTER I THINK IT HAS
BEEN, NEITHER HAS REALLY FOUND
THE RHYTHM OFFENSIVELY IN THIS
GAME.
>> IT HAS BEEN A HURKY JERK KIND
OF THING.
ONE TEAM SEEMS TO BE MAKING A
LITTLE BIT OF A RUN BUT THEN THE
OTHER TEAM WOULD HAVE A QUICK
ANSWER FOR IT.
GETTING BACK TO THE BOTH OF THEM
PLAYING WITH THE BIG CLUB IN
GOLDEN STATE.
HOW ABOUT THEIR PRESENT PLAY
THUS FAR WITHOUT THOSE GUYS.
BUT GIVE CRED TO IT CASEY HILL
AND HIS TEAM FOR ADJUSTING.
TWO IMPORTANT GUYS NOT IN THE
LINEUPS IN THE LAST TWO GAMES OF
THE LAST SERIES AND YET THEY
WERE ABLE TO ADVANCE, FIND
THEMSELVES HERE IN THE FINALS
HOPING TO DO MORE OF THE SAME,
PLAY WELL.
WE WITHOUT TWO MAIN PIECES IN
THE LINEUP.
>> SANTA CRUZ WENT THREE GAMES
IN THE SEMIFINALS AFTER A SWEEP
IN THE OPENING ROUND.
FORT WAYNE WITH A PAIR OF SWEEP
ONLY THEIR FIFTH GAME OF THE
POSTSEASON, REBOUNDED BY
BOULDIN, LEADING BY EIGHT TO TIE
THE PLAY IN THE THIRD.
GAME ONE HERE IN SANTA CRUZ.
WILL FRISBY AND FINISH FOR
HOWARD.
>> GOOD BALL MOVEMENT.
HOWARD A GREAT CUT FROM THE WEAK
SIDE STRAIGHT TO THE BASKET.
SEEMED LIKE THE DEFENSIVE JUST
KIND OF GOT LOST AND DIDN'T KNOW
WHERE HE WAS AND WHEN YOU SENSE
THAT AS AN OFFENSIVE PLAYER, YOU
DON'T KNOW... YOU SEE DEFENDER
DOESN'T KNOW WHERE YOU ARE, THE
BEST THING IS TO GET STRAIGHT TO
THE BASKET.
>> UNDERNEATH FOR CURRY.
>> HE HAS GOTTEN IT IN THE LANE
IN THE THIRD AFTER MISSING
OUTSIDE SHOTS AND HE HAS SEVEN
NOW.
>> THE PROBLEM IS NOT A LOT OF
OTHER PEOPLE REALLY DOING
ANYTHING ON THE OFFENSIVE END OF
THE FLOOR.
YOU SEE THE GREAT BACKDOOR CUT.
RON HOWARD, THE BENEFICIARY.
>> CURRY TO THE RIM AND DRAWS
THE WHISTLE.
CURRY GETTING AGGRESSIVE HERE IN
THE THIRD AND WE'LL GET TO THE
LINE AND 4:12 TO PLAY IN THE
THIRD QUARTER.
BOTH TEAMS OVER THE LIMIT.
72 H 62, GOLDEN STATE THE
CLIPPERS TONIGHT AND THIS IS THE
FINAL, THE GRIZLIES TAKING DOWN
THE THUNDERS BACK-TO-BACK WINS
IN OVERTIME TAKING A TWO-GAMES
TO ONE LEAD IN THEIR OPENING
ROUND SERIES.
>> UNBELIEVABLY IMPRESSIVE PLAY
THUS FAR, IN PARTICULAR MEMPHIS
GOING ON THE ROAD TO OKC AND
WINNING A GAME THERE SETS UP
THEIR FIRST GAME AT HOME, GAME
THREE OF THE SERIES.
IN MEMPHIS, EACH OF THE LAST TWO
GAMES THEY'VE BLOWN IT AT THE
END OF REGULATION.
THEY HAVE A SIZEABLE LEAGUE BUT
START WITH A LAG IN OVERTIME
BOTH TIMES AND THEY GOT THE
LEAD.
BACK TO SANTA CRUZ DOWN BY EIGHT
GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS IN THE
FIRST QUARTER, THEIR GAME THREE
AGAINST THE CLIPPERS LEADING BY
FOUR IN THAT ONE TONIGHT.
>> COMING OFF OF A TURNOVER BY
FORT WAYNE, IF YOU ARE SANTA
CRUZ, YOU HAVE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE
OF THAT AND CONVERT HERE ON THE
OFFENSIVE END OF THE FLOOR.
ONE OF THE WAYS YOU ARE GOING TO
FIND YOURSELF CHIPPING AWAY AT
THIS LEAD AND GETTING YOURSELF
BACK IN THE BALL GAME.
THERE'S THE... HOLDING, MAURICE
THOUGHT OTHERWISE.
>> A LOT OF STOPPAGES IN THIS
QUARTER.
THE WARRIORS HAVE BEEN VERY GOOD
AT THE STRIPE HERE TONIGHT.
THEY WERE 16 OF 16 IN THE FIRST
HALF AND NOW A COUPLE OF MISSES,
19-22 FOR THE GAME.
>> ONE OF THE RARE CHANCES TO
SEE SETH CURRY MISS TWO
FREE-THROWS.
NOT JUST ONE, ONE BUT TWO.
TWO IS FRONT PAGE HEADLINE.
>> THEY MISSED THE SHOT.
OHLBRECHT, UP EIGHT, ON THE
DRIVE BLOCKED BY ALEXANDER,
CORRALLED BY CURRY AND FOUL ON
ROJAS.
>> GOOD JOB BY ALEXANDER NOT
COMING DOWN WITH HIS ARMS.
THAT WOULD BE A SURE FIRE FOUL
CALL.
HE KEPT HIS ARMS UP ON BOULDIN'S
DRIVE.
REFEREE, GOOD CALL THAT TIME.
A GREAT JOB AT MOVING HIS FEET
WITH HIS ARMS STRAIGHT UP.
ALEXANDER IS ONE OF THOSE GUYS
WHERE IT JUST HAS NOT QUITE
WORKED OUT.
AND IT'S NOTHING AGAINST HIM.
HE HAS BEEN A GOOD GUY, MODEL
CITIZEN, WORKED HARD, JUST HAS
NOT PANNED OUT THE WAY HE HOPED.
>> INJURIES AS WELL.
HE IS COMING OFF THE INJURIES
WHICH I THINK DERAILED HIM FOR A
GOOD PART OF LAST YEAR AND A
GOOD PORTION OF THIS YEAR BUT HE
SEEMS TO BE HEALTHY NOW.
HE TALKED ABOUT HIS WRIST
INJURY, THE MOST RECENT INJURY
HE HAS BATTLED BACK FROM.
>> OVER HERE ON SANTA CRUZ,
ROJAS TO THE RIM AND PINNED
AGAINST THE GLASS BY THOMPSON.
NO GOAL TENDING CALLED AND NOW
CURRY FIRES.
ALEXANDER IN AND OUT AND REBOUND
FOR OHLBRECHT.
>> FOR ALL OUR VIEWERS AT HOME,
THROWING SOMETHING ON THE TV
RIGHT NOW YELLING GOAL TEND,
THEY'VE ADOPTED, THE D-LEAGUE
HAS, THE EUROPEAN RULES, ONCE
THE BALL HITS THE RIM, IF IT IS
ROLLING AROUND, YOU ARE ALLOWED
TO SLAP IT OUT.
THE EXPERIMENTATION OF DIFFERENT
RULES WE GOT OURSES A SIX-POINT
BALL GAME AS WE DRAW NEAR THE
END OF THE THIRD QUARTER
FORT WAYNE ON THE PENETRATION,
THAT'S... LEGAL.
NBA D-LEAGUE FINALS GAME ONE
PRESENTED BY TACO BELL.
WANT TO FIND OUT WHO THE HOTTEST
PROSPECTS ARE, LOOK ONLINE AND
LEARN ABOUT TOMORROW'S STARS OF
THE NBA.
SETH CURRY COME ALIVE A LITTLE
BIT IN THE THIRD QUARTER.
ROJAS HAS BEEN SOLID ALL DAY
LONG.
>> HE IS GOING TO HIS TEAMMATES.
PLAYING WELL FOUR OF EIGHT
SHOOTING.
SIX REBOUNDS TO GO WITH IT AS
WELL AND THE ABILITY TO KNOCK
DOWN THE LOW RANGE JUMP SHOT
WITH PENETRATION.
ROJAS VERY EFFECTIVE HERE
TONIGHT.
>> 72-66.
YOU SEE THE NUMBERS.
2:46 IN THE THIRD.
AND CURRY WE MENTIONED HAS COME
ALIVE A LITTLE BIT GETTING TO
THE RIM MORE HERE IN THE THIRD.
ALEXANDER ATTACKS AND SCORES.
>> TOUGH COMBINATION BETWEEN
OHLBRECHT, USING THE ADVANTAGE
OF HIS HEIGHT.
THEY WERE ABLE TO FINISH OVER
HIM.
ALEXANDER.
>> KEN HISM POSTED UP CLEARED BY
ALEXANDER.
DEFENSE FOR SANTA CRUZ PICKING
IT UP A LITTLE BIT RIGHT NOW.
ONE OF THE REASONS WHY THEY
FOUND THEMSELVES CHIPPING AWAY.
CAMERON JONES THOUGH UNABLE TO
MAKE THE MOST OF THAT
OPPORTUNITY.
>> 72-68 BOULDIN KENNY JONES
DEEP TO POST.
TOUGH SHOT TO THE LEFT, DIDN'T
GO.
HERE COMES SANTA CRUZ DOWN FOUR.
>> PRETTY GOOD THAT TIME BY ALEK
ANDER, OHLBRECHT TRIED TO GO
OVER HIS RIGHT SHOULDER.
CONSENTED TO THE JUMP HOOK AS
WELL.
GOOD DEFENSE ON THE INTERIOR.
>> AND NWAELELE OFF THE MARK
REBOUND ROJAS.
ONE OF 12 AT THE ARC TONIGHT FOR
THE WARRIORS.
>> YOU'VE SEEN NWAELELE IN
PARTICULAR KNOCK DOWN THE JUMP
SHOTS THIS SERIES PAST.
INDICATIVE OF WHAT HE AND THE
ENTIRE TEAM ARE GOING THROUGH
RIGHT NOW, A LITTLE BIT OF AN
OFFENSIVE FOUL THERE.
ELBOW BY OHLBRECHT.
ALEXANDER'S SHIN I BELIEVE.
THE WARRIORS GET IT BACK
TRAILING 72-68 WITH 1:10 LEFT IN
THE THIRD.
>> THINGS GETTING CHIPPY DOWN
THERE IN THE PAINTED AREA.
EXACTLY.
SANTA CRUZ BACK IN THE FINALS
SECOND STRAIGHT YEAR.
>> WHAT YOU SAW IN THE LAST PLAY
WAS HOW MUCH ATTENTION SETH
CURRY GETS WHEN HE COMES OFF
THAT SCREEN AND IT'S ALMOST AS
IF THEY PAID SO MUCH TO HIM THAT
THEY LEAVE ALEXANDER WIDE OPEN.
WHAT DID WE TALK ABOUT EARLIER?
WHEN YOUR DEFENDER DOESN'T KNOW
WHERE YOU ARE YOU CUT STRAIGHT
TO THE BASKET.
GREAT READ BY BOTH PLAYERS.
CURRY AND ALEXANDER.
>> ROJAS, KNOCKED AWAY.
BACK OUT TO MITCHELL.
HE MISFIRES AND PULLED DOWN BY
THOMPSON.
>> WE MENTIONED IT A LITTLE
EARLIER HOW TONY MITCHELL HAS
GOTTEN SO MUCH BETTER WITH HIS
SHOT SELECTION.
THAT TIME HE COULD HAVE PROBABLY
PULLED THAT ONE BACK OUT.
MITCHELL.
FOUR OF 16.
SHOOTING THE BASKETBALL.
AT SOME POINT YOU'VE GOT TO GET
WHERE YOU MAKE UP YOUR MIND THAT
YOU ARE GETTING TO THE BASKET.
A JUMPER IS NOT FALLING FOR ME
TODAY, FOR WHATEVER REASON, I'M
NOT GOING TO BE SATISFIED WITH
SHOOTING JUMPERS, HAVE I TO HAVE
AN ANSWER.
GET TO THE BASKET.
GET SOME HIGHER PERCENTAGE SHOTS
AND MAYBE EVEN SOME FOULS.
>> JONES PAYS IT OFF AND THE
LEAD BACK TO FOUR.
SHOT CLOCK OFF AND WE WIND DOWN
THE THIRD QUARTER AND THE
WARRIORS CAN PLAY FOR THE FINAL
SHOT.
>> KENNY-- MCKINNEY JONES MADE
THAT LOOK EASY.
PUMP FAKING, LOCATING THE RIM
AND FINISHING IN TRAFFIC.
NOT AN EASY PLAY.
TALENTED AND ATHLETIC MCKINNEY
JONES MADE IT OOK LEEZY.
NWAELELE RATTLES ONE IN AND THEY
GET THE STEAL AND QUICK SHOT
THAT WOULDN'T GO.
BUT SANTA CRUZ TRAILS BY EIGHT
AT HALFTIME AND A BIG SHOT BY
NWAELELE TO END THE THIRD.
A ONE-POINT GAME IN GAME ONE OF
THE BEST OF THREE IN THE NBA
D-LEAGUE FINALS PRESENTED BY
TACO BELL ON CBS SPORTS NETWORK.
WE ARE COMEBACK FOR THE FOURTH.
WELCOME BACK TO GAME ONE OF THE
D-LEAGUE FINALS PRESENTED BY
TACO BELL.
FRAIP THE TOP SEED HAS THE LEAD
BY ONE.
DOWNLOAD THE D-LEAGUE APP STATS
AND SCHEDULES AND LIVE GAME
ACTION.
IT SETS UP PERFECTLY IN GAME ONE
OF THE BEST OF THREE SERIES.
NICE LITTLE RUN TO CLOSE OUT THE
THIRD.
THEY'VE GOT IT DOWN TO ONE HERE
BEFORE GOING ON THE ROAD FOR
GAME TWO.
THEY'D LIKE TO MAKE SURE THEY
GET IT DONE HERE AT HOME.
>> NWAELELE KNOCKING DOWN THE
LOW JUMPER.
SOFT TOUCH BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY
SETH CURRY, THEIR MAIN GUN FULLY
ENGAGED IN THE THIRD QUARTER.
LOOK FOR HIM TO BE PART OF
WHATEVER HAPPENS MOVING FORWARD,
PARTICULARLY FOR THE TEAM IN
WHITE.
>> FIVE OF 23 IN THE THIRD.
THREE-POINTER IS SHORT.
A FRESH SHOT CLOCK HERE.
>> NOT A GOOD START FOR SANTA
CRUZ WHO IS TRYING TO FIGHT
THEIR WAY BACK INTO THE BALL
GAME.
GIVING UP AN OFFENSIVE REBOUND.
THAT'S WHAT A SECOND LOOK DOES.
HOWARD BURIES ONE AND THE LEAD
IS BACK TO THREE AS WE START THE
FOURTH.
SANTA CRUZ IN THE FINALS LAST
YEAR LOST IN A TWO-GAME SWEEP.
CURRY GOT HIS MAN IN THE AIR AND
DRILLS A THREE.
HE HAS GOT 14 IN THE SECOND
HALF.
>> GOOD PUMP FAKE AS WELL.
SET UP THE JUMP SHOT AND YOU
WONDER WHY HE DIDN'T PUT THE
BALL ON THE FLOOR.
HE WANTED THAT THREE AND HE GOT
IT.
>> WOULDN'T GO, ALEXANDER CLEARS
KIWI GARDNER ON THE MOVE.
COULDN'T GET IT TO GO WITH THE
LEFT.
>> SURPRISED AT HOW WIDE OPEN HE
WAS AND HOW READILY HE GOT TO
THE BASKET.
>> NOW MITCHELL, THE SCORE AND
THE FOUL FOR FORT WAYNE.
HOWARD IN TRANSITION FINDS A
CUTTING TONY MITCHELL BIG BUCKET
FOR FORT WAYNE.
SANTA CRUZ UP UNTIL THAT POINT
WAS INCHING THEIR WAY BACK IN
THIS BALL GAME.
FORT WAYNE TRYING TO FIND A
LITTLE SEPARATION.
>> MITCHELL IS FIVE OF 18 WITH
THAT MAKE.
HE HAS GOT A DOZEN AND MISS ON
THE FREE-THROW.
OHLBRECHT GIVES THEM ANOTHER
CHANCE THOUGH.
NEARLY THREW IT AWAY AND
TURNOVER BACK TO SANTA CRUZ.
>> LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION.
DO YOU THINK TONY MITCHELL IS
GOING TO TOP SHOOTING?
>> NO.
>> I'M GOING TO SAY NO.
THAT'S JUST NOT HIS GAME.
HE IS ALWAYS ON, ALWAYS IN
AGGRESSIVE MODE SO DESPIED HIS
SHOOTING WOES, YOU MENTIONED
5-18.
I WOULD IMAGINE THAT TONY
MITCHELL IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO
TAKE OPEN LOOKS WHEN HE GETS IT.
>> CURRY IN AND ROUT.
REBOUND MITCHELL AND A CHANCE
FOR THE LEAD RIGHT THERE FOR THE
WARRIORS AND NOW THE MAD ANTS
WITH THE OFFENSIVE FOUL.
>> GREAT DEFENSE BY CAMERON,
SHOULD SAY MICHAEL THOMPSON AND
PARTICIPATE IN THE DRIVE TO THE
BASELINE AND GAVE UP.
SEE THE BASELINE DRIVE, BEATS
HIM TO THE SPOT.
PERFECT POSITION.
>> 78-76 WITH 10:19 TO PLAY IN
GAME ONE OF THE D-LEAGUE FINALS
BEST OF THREE.
>> GOING AWAY FROM SETH CURRY.
SEE WHETHER OR NOT THEY SWING IT
AND GET IT BACK TO HIM.
>> CONNER, NWAELELE OFF THE
MARK
REBOUND FOR FORT WAYNE, RAMON
HARRIS.
>> HE THOUGHT HE HAD THE
OPPORTUNITY TO SECURE THE LOOSE
BALL.
COMMITTED TO IT.
BY THE TIME HE ACTUALLY GOT TO
THE BASKETBALL, IT WAS SECURED.
>> TRAIT TO THE RIM MITCHELL HAD
IT PARTIALLY BLOCKED.
TRACKED DOWN, MCKINNEY JONES
GETS IT IN.
>> GUYS LIKE ALEXANDER AND
GARDNER TRYING TO DRIBBLE THE
LOOSE BALL OUT OF TROUBLE
INSTEAD OF JUST PICKING IT UP.
JUST GRAB THE BASKETBALL AND
LOOK FOR ONE OF YOUR TEAMMATES
COMING UP THE FLOOR.
>> CURRY PULLED UP AND PUT ON
THE LINE.
FOUL ON HOWARD AND CUR TRI TO
THE STRIPE.
>> THAT HAS BEEN THEIR APPROACH
ALL GAME LONG NOT ALLOW CURRY TO
OPERATE WITH THE ROOM.
IT RESULTED IN A FOUL BUT YOU
CAN SEE ATHE APPROACH.
THEY'RE NOT GOING TO LET THIM
TURN ANY CORNERS OR ROME FREELY.
>> KNOCKS IN THE FIRST.
BACK INTO THE LINEUP AS MCKINNEY
JONES SITS DOWN FOR THE MAD
ANTS.
15 ON FOUR OF 11 FOR CURRY, ALL
15 IN THE SECOND HALF.
CAMERON JONES BACK IN FOR THE
WARRIORS, NWAELELE SITS.
80-77 WITH 9:341-- WITH 931 TO
PLAY.
EACH TEAM IN DOUBLE FIGURES.
TALKED ABOUT THE DEPTH.
A LOT OF TALENT ON BOTH SIDES.
NO SURPRISE.
SEE THEM SQUARING OFF HERE IN
THE FINALS AND A TOUGH SHOT ONCE
AGAIN FOR MITCHELL GOES IN.
HE WILL NOT BE DETERRED.
NICE SOFT TOUCH FOR HIM WHAT I
LIKE HE JUST HAS A SCORER'S
MENTALITY.
REGARDLESS OF HOW THE PREVIOUS
THREE QUARTERS HAVE GONE FOR
HIM.
HE IS GOING TO BE READY TO
CONTRIBUTE ON THE OFFENSIVE END
OF THE FLOOR IF AND WHEN THEY
NEED HIM.
>> THOMPSON PULLS UP IN THE
LANE, 82-80.
YOU'RE RIGHT ABOUT TONY
MITCHELL, SIX OF 19 BUT HE KEEPS
FIRING.
HOWARD, DEFENDED BY GARDNER.
OHLBRECHT MOVING A LITTLE BIT ON
THAT CALL IN CASE YOU ARE
WONDERING WHAT THE RULES ARE,
YOU HAVE TO BE ABSOLUTELY SET AS
YOU ARE SETTING THE SCREEN,
CAN'T BE LEANING A LITTLE BIT.
CAN'T BE OFF TO ONE SIDE.
YOU'VE GOT TO BE STRAIGHT UP AND
SET.
>> ALEXANDER SCREENS, CURRY THE
DRIVE, FLIPS IT UP FOR
ALEXANDER, BACK TO CURRY, MID
RANGE, NO.
AND HOWARD FOUGHT FOR IT.
TRACKED DOWN BY HARRIS.
>> IT WAS HOWARD THAT ROTATED
OVER TO GET THAT PASS AND HEADED
FOR JOE ALEXANDER.
NOT ONLY IS HE DOING IT FOR
OFFENSIVE SIDE OF THE FLOOR BUT
PLAYING A LITTLE D AS WELL.
SIX TO SHOOT, ROJAS.
OHLBRECHT DOWN TO TWO, ONE.
ROJAS NEVER DREW UP AND THE SHOT
CLOCK VIOLATION.
AGAIN JOE ALEXANDER COMING OVER
TO ROTATE, DOING A GREAT JOB AS
HE DID EARLIER IN THE GAME.
COMING OVER WITH HIS HANDS
STRAIGHT UP, NOT REACHING, NOT
TRYING TO BLOCK ANY SHOT JUST
TRYING TO MAKE THE DEFENDERS
SHOOT OVER HIS OUTSTRETCHED ARM.
THAT APPROACH HAS BEEN EFFECTIVE
THUS FAR TONIGHT.
>> EITHER TEAM HAS SHOT WELL.
YOU SAW THE NUMBERS SANTA CRUZ
37% BUT THEY'RE DOWN TWO AS WE
GO UNDER EIGHT MINUTES.
>> IT'S BASICALLY SANTA CRUZ
JUST MISSING SHOTS THAT WE'VE
SEEN THEM MAKE IN THE PREVIOUS
TWO SERIES IN THE PLAYOFFS.
THOSE ARE SHOTS WE SEE THEM
KNOCK DOWN.
CAMERON JONES MOVING OUT THE
BASKETBALL.
THE CUTTER IN CHIEF THAT'S WHAT
I'M GOING TO START CALLING HIM
BECAUSE HE IS CONSTANTLY MOVING,
WHETHER OR NOT HE HAS THE
BASKETBALL, HE IS A TOUGH GUARD
BECAUSE HE IS ALWAYS ON THE
MOVE.
>> AT THREE, FORT WAYNE BACK IN
FRONT 85-82 WITH JONES, CURRY,
THOMPSON, GARDNER NOW WITH THE
FOUL TO THE FLOOR, JONES GOT
BLOCKED BY HARRIS FROM BEHIND.
THE MAN IS PUSHED WITH MITCHELL
CORNER, ROJAS, NOT THIS TIME.
AND A REBOUND FOR CURRY.
CURRY THE DRIVE AND KICK.
HARRIS IS ALL OFFER THE PLACE
RIGHT NOW.
>> GETTING GOOD OPPORTUNITIES
BUT UNABLE TO MAKE THEM COUNT.
THOMPSON TRYING TO GET THE
CHARGE.
DO THEY GIVE IT TO HIM.
>> ONE OF THE OFFICIALS CALLED
TIME AND THAT'S GOING THE CALL
THAT I THINK THAT STANDS.
>> TONY MITCHELL WITH THE BALL.
DOES IT RESULT IN A BUCKET?
>> THEY CALL A TIEUP, 85-28 HERE
IN THE FOURTH.
6:44 TO PLAY IN GAME ONE WHICH
IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS WHY I
LOVE PROFESSIONAL BASKETBALL AND
WISH THEY WOULD INCORPORATE...
WHAT IS IT ALTERNATING
POSSESSION.
WE JUMP THE BALL.
>> AND THIS IS THE SECOND TIME
THAT KIWI 5'7" HAS BEEN JUMPING
AGAINST HOWARD WHO STANDS 6'5".
>> IT IS NOT ALWAYS ABOUT THE
PEOPLE JUMPING.
IT'S THE POSITIONING AROUND THE
CIRCLE.
GUYS IF THEY DO A GOOD JOB OF
BLOCKING OUT, THEY'RE THE ONES
THAT CAN COME UP WITH THAT.
IT DOESN'T MATTER FOR THE MOST
PART WHO IS IN THE CIRCLE.
THERE YOU GO.
THE KIWI THE WIN, JONES, BLOCKED
BY HARRIS AGAIN.
HARRIS HAS BEEN FE NOM THAT
WILL.
>> PART OF THAT IS UNDERNEATH
THE OTHER SIDE AND USE THE RIM
AS PROTECTION BUT THE LOOSE
BALL.
CURRY TO THE RIM.
TO NO, OL' BREBLGHT CHASES IT
DOWN AND NEITHER TEAM FIRING ON
ALL CYLINDERS HERE, FORT WAYNE
GOES TO MITCHELL BACK IN FRONT
BY SIX.
THEY'RE FINDING THEMSELVES VERY
MUCH BACK IN THE BALL GAME.
THEY WERE ONLY DOWN SIX BUT
THOSE TWO THREES MIGHT COME BACK
TO HURT THEM.
HARRIS REACHING IN FOR ANOTHER
STEAL.
5:54 REMAINING.
HE STARTED THAT PLAY IN THE KICK
WITH A THREE TO KNOCK DOWN
BACK-TO-BACK AND LEAD BY SIX.
5:53 REMAINING IN GAME ONE OF
THE D-LEAGUE FINALS.
MAD ANTS LEADING 88-82.
THE NBA DRAFT RIGHT AROUND THE
CORNER AND THIS YEAR'S COLLEGE
CLASS IS LOADED WITH TALENT.
TUNE INTO INSIDE COLLEGE
FOOTBALL DRAFT SPECIAL MONDAY
NIGHT.
>> THE FIRST HALF, WELL WITHIN
RANGE OF TAKING GAME ONE.
THOMPSON GOES STRONG AND BLOCKS.
ALEXANDER IS STRIPPED ON THE WAY
UP AND HERE COMES FORT WAYNE.
>> I'D LIKE TO HAVE A TALK WITH
THE OFFICIALS ON HOW THAT NOT A
FOUL ON THOMPSON AND THEN FORT
WAYNE MAKES YOU PAY.
>> KEEPS FIRING.
THE POINT HE MADE IN THE THIRD
WHEN HE WAS 4-18.
HE IS GOING TO KEEP SHOOTING AND
HE HAS CAUGHT FIRE LATE.
>> DOWN THE BASELINE.
JONES PUTSZ IT HOME.
>> CAMERON JONES DECIDING IF
THEY'RE GOING TO FOUL ME, I'M
GOING TO EXPOSE THEM BY TAKING
IT TO THE RIM AND DUNKING IT.
JONES TRYING TO PUT A LITTLE
PRESSURE 40 FEET AWAY FROM THE
BASKET.
THAT'S FIFTH SO HE HAS TO MAKE
SURE THAT HE PLAYS UNDER CONTROL
IN THE LAST FIVE MINUTES AND
CHANGE.
WE ALL KNOW ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT
HIS PRESENCE IS OUT ON THE
FLOOR.
30 SECOND TIMEOUT ON THE FLOOR.
>> 5:03 TO PLAY IN THE GAME.
YOU MENTIONED RIGHT OFF THE BAT,
WHEN IT IS THE BEST OF THREE,
NEEDLESS TO SAY THERE NO, SIR
TIME TO MESS AROUND.
IF YOU LOSE GAME ONE AND YOU ARE
ON THE BRINK IMMEDIATELY.
>> LIKE I SAID, YOU ARE ONLY
ALLOWED ONE LOSS IN THE SERIES.
YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE IT COUNT IN
OTHER WAYS YOU'VE GOT A SHORT
WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY
YOUR BEST BASKETBALL.
AND YOU HOPE THAT WHEN YOU PLAY
OUT THERE YOU ARE PLAYING YOUR
BEST BASKETBALL BECAUSE YOU
DON'T HAVE A LOT OF OPPORTUNITY
TO OVERCOME A POOR START.
HAVE YOU TO MAKE THE MOST OF ALL
YOUR OPPORTUNITIES.
>> CURRY SCORELESS 0-2 IN THE
FIRST HALF.
16 NOW IN THE SECOND HALF.
GOT HIS TEAM TO WITHIN SEVEN.
THEY TRAILED BY EIGHT AT
HALFTIME, FOYER FOR 11 IN THE
SECOND HALF.
HAS GOTTEN MORE AGGRESSIVE TO
THE RIM BUT SANTA CRUZ ON THEIR
OWN FLOOR IN GAME ONE.
GAME TWO WILL BE AT FORT WAYNE
SATURDAY NIGHT IF WE GET TO GAME
THREE, ALSO AT FORT WAYNE ON
MONDAY NIGHT.
ALL GAMES IN THE FINAL HERE ON
THE NETWORK.
THOMPSON WHAT HAD IT AND GETS
TANGLED UP.
A FOUL ON ROJAS.
>> A TOUGH SHOT TONY MITCHELL
TAKES A QUICK BREAK THERE.
OPPOSITE DIRECTION.
GOING TO SEEM ALL NIGHT AS
MITCHELL GETS NOT CALLED.
>> THAT'S AN UNORTHODOX SPIN AND
FACEUP AND THAT'S TONY
MITCHELL'S GAME.
A LITTLE OFF OF CENTER BUT VERY
EFFECTIVE.
A TURNOVER ON ALEXANDER.
THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS
COACHES TELL YOU TO USE YOUR
DRIBBLE TO GET YOU SOMEWHERE.
THAT TIME ALEXANDER JUST PUT THE
BALL ON THE FLOOR WITH NO
PURPOSE OR INTENT IN MIND AND IT
LED TO A TURNOVER.
HE WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH BETTER
OFF HOLDING ON TO THE
BASKETBALL.
>> IN AND OUT.
REBOUND.
CURRY, 91-84 WITH 4:15 TO PLAY.
IN GAME ONE, JONES!
HOW IRONIC IS THAT, WITH
NWAELELE AND CURRY THEIR BEST
PERIMETER JUMP SHOOTERS ARE COLD
RIGHT NOW.
JONES KNOWN FOR HIS PENETRATION,
HE IS THE ONE KNOCKING DOWN LONG
RANGE THREES RIGHT NOW.
>> FOUR-POINT GAME.
UNDER FOUR MINUTES.
PULLUP, HOWARD, SHORT, REBOUND
ROJAS.
DOING WHAT HE DOES, TRYING TO
TAKE CURRY AND CURRY PUTS IT
AWAY.
>> IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH
BETTER SERVED HOLDING IT BACK
OUT AND USING ALL OF THAT SHOT
CLOCK AND CAMERON JONES
ASSESSING THE SITUATION
REALIZING THAT HE HAS GOT AN
ADVANTAGE GETTING TO THE RIM.
NO ONE IS STOPPING HIM.
-0 WARRIOR RUN IN THE LAST TWO
MINUTES AND THEY GOT THE DEFICIT
TO TWO.
MITCHELL AGAINST NWAELELE WITH
SEVEN TO SHOOT.
MITCHELL THE DRIVE, STRIPS AND
THOMPSON, OUT OF BOUNDS, TO
SANTA CRUZ.
>> OFF MITCHELL'S LEG THAT TIME.
GOOD DEFENSE.
DISLODGED THE BASKETBALL ON
MITCHELL'S DRIVE.
ON THE WAY OUT OF HIS HANDS,
ABOUT HOW OFTENNED OFF HIS LEGS.
>> BOULDIN BACK IN THE LINEUP
FOR FORT WAYNE.
SCORELESS OVER THE TWO AND A
HALF MINUTES AND THEIR LEAD
TRIMMED TO TWO WITH THREE TO
PLAY AND A NEAR TAKEAWAY BUT A
FOUL CALLED ON FORT WAYNE NOW
THEY SWITCHED OFF AND TONY
MITCHELL, A LITTLE BIT TALLER
THAN BOULDIN AND QUICKER IS ON
CAMERON JONES NOW.
>> SANTA CRUZ CAN FLY OR TAKE
THE LEAD HERE.
NWAELELE SHOT CLOCK DOWN TO SIX.
>> SEE HOW ON THAT LAST PICK AND
ROLL BETWEEN JONES AND
ALEXANDER, THEY PLAY ALEXANDER
FOR THE DIVE AND DARE JONES TO
SHOOT THE PERIMETER JUMP SHOT.
WOULD RATHER HIM SHOOT THE
PERIMETER J THAN LET ALEXANDER
CUT TO THE BASKET.
>> SHOT MISSED INSIDE, A RESET
FOR FORT WAYNE LEADING BY TWO
WITH TWO AND A HALF REMAINING.
TIMEOUT.
WILL CURRY BE THE HERO DOWN THE
STRETCH AT HOME.
SANTA CRUZ TRAILED BY EIGHT AT
THE HALF.
CAMERON JONES HAS BEEN THERE ALL
NIGHT IN GAME ONE.
GET READY FOR THE FINISH OF THIS
ONE, 91-89.
FOURTH QUARTER 2:29 TO PLAY IN
GAME ONE.
HERE IN SANTA CRUZ, THEY'RE
REVIEWING FROM THE FIVE AND A
HALF MINUTE MARK A THREE-POINTER
BY TONY MITCHELL AND THIS WILL
BE UPHELD AS A THREE-POINTER THE
WAY IT WAS ORIGINALLY CALLED.
>> GOOD CALL.
WELL BEYOND THE LINE.
>> SCRUZ AND THE BONUS DOWN THE
STRETCH, FORT WAYNE HAS TO BET
THERE, 2:29 REMAINING.
TRYING TO TAKE GAME ONE ON THE
ROAD, THEY TURN IT OVER HERE.
NUMBERS FOUR ON ONE.
ALEXANDER GOT BLOCKEDDED BY
FRISBY BUT GOT IT BACK BY
THOMPSON.
>> A FEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR SANTA
CRUZ TO GET THEMSELVES BACK IN
THE BALL GAME.
RESULTING FROM A TURNOVER OR
MISSED SHOT ON THE OTHER END AND
THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO TAKE
ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNITIES.
THEY SEEM TO BE COMING DOWN IN
SUCK SESSION A NUMBER OF TIMES
WITH NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT.
>> HOWARD, SPINS OUT ON THE SHOT
AND BACK TO SANTA CRUZ.
ALEXANDER GOT TANGLED UNDERNEATH
AND OFFENSIVE FOUL ON WILL
FRISBY.
>> ONE MORE OPPORTUNITY FOR
SANTA CRUZ TO GET THEMSELVES
BACK IN THIS BALL GAME.
WE SEE IT THERE.
THE BLACKOUT, FRISBY TRYING TO
BLOCK OUT JOE ALEXANDER.
>> AND AGAIN FORT WAYNE OVER THE
LIMIT SO FREE-THROW FOR SANTA
CRUZ.
IT SHOULD BE FREE-THROWS.
ALEXANDER IS GOING TO STEP UP.
>> YOU CAN SEE FRIS BY CAUGHT
HIM WITH AN INITIAL ELBOW BEFORE
THE BLOCKING OUT PROCESS EVEN
STARTED.
ALEXANDER FELL HARD.
>> HE IS AN 80% FOUL SHOOTER IN
THE REGULAR SEASON.
A CHANCE TO STEP UP HERE AND TIE
THE GAME WITH 1:53 REMAINING.
WAY OFF IN THE FIRST.
USUALLY A GOOD FREE-THROW
SHOOTER DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT ON
THAT LAST ONE.
THERE YOU GO BIG BOYS, ONE OF
TWO A ONE-POINT GAME WITH 1:50
REMAINING IN GAME ONE OF THE
D-LEAGUE FINALS HERE IN SANTA
CRUZ.
GAME TWO SATURDAY NIGHT WILL BE
FORT WAYNE HERE ON CBS SPORTS
NETWORK.
WHO WILL HAVE THE LEAD IN THE
SERIES?
TOUGH SHOT MITCHELL AGAIN AND A
BAILOUT FOUL AS NWAELELE KNOCKED
HIM HARD.
>> GIVE NWAELELE CREDIT ON THE
DEFENSIVE EXCHANGE.
WHEN YOU ALLOW ANYONE TO HAVE
SEVEN OR EIGHT DRIBBLES AND THAT
MUCH TIME TO BREAK YOU DOWN, LET
ALONE A TONY MITCHELL WHO CAN'T
SCORE, THAT'S A TOUGH MARK.
NWAELELE IS DOING THE BEST HE
CAN WITH A PROLIFIC SCORER.
HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I SAID TOUGH
SHOT FOR MITCHELL?
NOT THE KIND OF GUY WHO OPTS FOR
THE SIMPLE PLAY.
>> TWO BIG FREE-THROWS, 93-90
WITH A MINUTE AND A HALF TO
PLAY.
AND THEY GIVE THE BALL TO
CAMERON JONES.
EXPECT SETH CURRY TO COME OFF
WITH SOME SCREENS.
>> AND THEY TURN IT OVER AND
BACK TO THE MAT.
>> A HEART BREAKER RIGHT THERE.
CAMERON JONES UNABLE TO SIMPLY
INITIATE THE OFFENSE.
WASN'T TRYING TO BLOW BY
ANYBODY, WASN'T TRYING TO TAKE
IT TO RIM LIKE HE IS KNOWN TO
DO.
TRYING TO INITIATE THE OFFENSE
AND COULD NOT SECURE THE LOOSE
BALL.
>> LOOSE BALL FOUL ON SANTA CRUZ
SO HOWARD, THE VETERAN TRYING TO
WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP.
AND ANOTHER BIG FREE-THROW MADE
FOR FORT WAYNE TEAM THAT HASN'T
BEEN ALL THAT GREAT AT THE
STRIPE OARNT.
>> YOU MENTION IN THE FOURTH
QUARTER, WHEN THE OPPORTUNITY
PRBTS ITSELF, THEY'VE MADE THE
MOST OF THEIR CHANCES.
21 FROM THE FIELD RIGHT NOW.
CURRY REBOUND ROJAS.
FOUR-POINT FORT WAYNE LEAD WITH
1:10 TO PLAY.
TWO TIMEOUTS REMAINING FOR BOTH
TEAMS.
PRETTY SOON YOU HAVE TO START
THINKING WHEN DO WE START
FOULING?
>> FOUR ON THE SHOT CLOCK, TONY
MITCHELL DOES IT AGAIN.
>> WOW.
TONY MITCHELL FROM SAN JOSE.
KNOCKS THAT ONE DOWN.
WE TALKED ABOUT IT.
IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT HIS
SHOOTING PERCENTAGE IS, HE IS
ONE OF THESE GUYS THAT HIS
CONFIDENCE DOESN'T WAIVER.
HE IS ALWAYS STUCK ON POSITIVE.
TONY MITCHELL TAKING WHAT HIS
TEAMMATES PROVIDE FOR HIM.
HE HAS GOT 25 POINTS ON THAT
LONG RANGE BOMB.
THAT MAY HAVE BEEN ENOUGH TO
SEAL THIS W FOR FORT WAYNE.
>> 97-90.
A THREE POSSESSION GAME WITH 53
.5 REMAINING.
GAME TWO WILL BE IN FORT WAYNE
INDIANA COMING YOUR WAY SATURDAY
NIGHT 10:30 EASTERN RIGHT HERE
ON CBS SPORTS NETWORK.
IT'S NECESSARY-- IF NECESSARY,
GAME THREE ALSO IN FORT WAYNE
MONDAY NIGHT HERE ON THE
NETWORK.
>> SANTA CRUZ IF THINGS HOLD AS
THEY ARE WILL BE DOWN 1-0.
THAT'S A TOUGH ACT FOR THEM TO
GO ON THE ROAD AND WIN TWO GAMES
IN A TOUGH PLACE AGAINST THE
NUMBER ONE OVERALL SEED AS WELL.
THAT'S GOING TO BE A DIFFICULT
ENDEAVOR, BUT THEY'RE CERTAINLY
CAPABLE OF IT.
I DON'T THINK THEY HAVE THE
ABILITY TO WIN GAME THREE IN RIO
GRAND VALLEY THE OTHER NIGHT AND
YET THEY DID.
THEY PLAYED A WELL ROUNDED GAME
ON THE ROAD AND WON IN A
BUILDING THEY HADN'T WON IN, IN
PARTICULAR IN THE PLAYOFFS, IN A
VERY, VERY LONG TIME.
>> SANTA CRUZ COULD USE A THREE.
WHO SHOULD THIS GO TO ON THE
POSSESSION IN.
>> HAS TO BE A QUICK HITTER NO
MATTER WHO IT GOES TO.
GET SOMETHING GOING TO THE
BASKET AND FORCE A TURNOVER OR A
QUICK THREE, CURRY IS YOUR MAN.
YOU HOPE HE MAKES IT AND THEN
AGAIN YOU TRY TO PICK UP FULL
COURT AND FORCE TURNOVERS
BECAUSE YOU NEED STEALS TO GET
YOU BACK IN THE BALL GAME.
>> ALEXANDER TRYING TO GET THE
FOUL AND DOES WITH 43.1 AND THE
WARRIORS DOWN SEVEN.
>> GOOD DEFENSE DOWN THAT TIME.
AND DOING WHAT HE IS SUPPOSED TO
DO, FINISHING THE EXCHANGE BY
SECURING THE REBOUND.
TAKE A LOOK AT CASEY HILL.
>> 17 OF THEIR LAST 19 GOING
BACK TO THE REGULAR SEASON.
A COUPLE OF SWEEPS HERE IN THE
POSTSEASON AND NOW TRYING TO
MAKE IT 5-0 IN THE PLAYOFFS.
WITH A ONE GAME TO NONE LEAD IF
THEY CAN HOLD ON NOW.
FRISBY, A COUPLE OF BIG ONES,
HAS BEEN GOOD AT THE LINE DOWN
THE STREECH.
DESPERATION TIME FOR SANTA CRUZ
AS WE GO UNDER 40 SECONDS.
NWAELELE AIR BALL REBOUND
BOULDIN AND NOW WITH 32.8, THE
FOUL COMMITTED AND A NINE-POINT
LEAD AND IT LOOKS LIKE FORT
WAYNE IS GOING TO STEAL GAME ONE
ON THE ROAD HERE IN THE FINALS.
>> THE CROWD FILING OUT AND
RECOGNIZING COMING TO THE
REALIZATION THAT THIS IS THE
LAST GAME AT HOME.
WISHING THEIR TEAM WELL WISHES
ON THE ROAD.
THEY'VE GOT A TOUGH CHALLENGE
AHEAD OF THEM TO GO FORT WAYNE
AND NOW YOU HAVE TO WIN BOTH OF
THESE GAMES BECAUSE WE TALKED
ABOUT IT AT THE TOP OF THE
BROADCAST, THREE-GAME SERIES
LONL ALLOWS YOU ONE LOSS.
YOU GOT THAT LOSS QUICKLY HERE
TONIGHT AND IF YOU THOUGHT IT
WAS TOUGH TO BEAT THIS TEAM AT
HOME, IMAGINE IT IS GOING TO BE
DOUBLY HARDER TO BEAT FORT WAYNE
IN THE CONFINES OF THEIR OWN JIM
NAIS YUM.
>> FORT WAYNE LEADING BY 11.
GAME TWO SATURDAY NIGHT 10:30
EASTERN HERE ON CBS SPORTS
NETWORK.
WE'LL HAVE A CHANCE TO WRAP UP
THIS SERIES AND WIN THE FIRST
TIGHT UNTIL FRANCHISE HISTORY.
THAT IS JUST HOW QUICKLY IT CAN
HAPPEN IN A BEST OF THREE
SCENARIO.
IF WE GO TO A THIRD GAME, IT
WILL BE MONDAY NIGHT ON CBS
SPORTS NETWORK.
FORT WAYNE ON A 10-0 RUN.
TALK ABOUT PUTTING THE CLAMPS
DOWN ON THE ROAD OVER THE LAST
1:21.
>> FOR THEM TO DO THAT IN THIS
ENVIRONMENT AFTER DOING IT ALL
SEASON LONG MAKES IT EVEN MORE
IMPRESSIVE.
WE'VE SEEN SANTA CRUZ PERFORM
REALLY WELL IN THIS BUILDING BUT
TONIGHT IT'S THE VISITING TEAM,
FORT WAYNE COMING IN AND
FIGHTING THIS RAUCOUS CRAWD--
CROWD MOST OF THE EVENING.
>> PERHAPS THE FLIP SIDE YOU
TALK ABOUT BEING ON THE BRINK OF
ELIMINATION, IF YOU GO THERE AND
GET GAME TWO, THEN IT IS ONE
GAME TO TAKE IT ALL AND I KNOW
IT IS STATING THE OBVIOUS BUT
CLEARLY THE POINT IS MOMENTUM
CAN SHIFT SO QUICKLY IN THIS
LEAGUE.
WE'VE SEEN THIS ALL YEAR AND
PARTICULARLY IN THE SHORT
POSTSEASON SERIES.
>> I THINK IT GOING TO BE
INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT FOR SANTA
CRUZ TO COME IN TO GAME TWO IN
FORT WAYNE AND START OFF WELL
BECAUSE AT TIMES PSYCHOLOGICALLY
SPEAKING, TEAMS THAT ARE DOWN IN
A SERIES, ALL THEY'RE WAITING TO
DO IS FOR TO YOU GIVE THEM A
REASON TO PACK IT UP AND GO
HOME.
THAT'S WHAT FORT WAYNE IS GOING
TO WANT TO DO IN GAME TWO, COME
OUT AND SEND A MESSAGE THIS IS
NOT GOING TO BE YOUR NIGHT.
WHETHER OR NOT SANTA CRUZ CAN
PLAY THROUGH THAT REMAINS TO BE
SEEN.
>> TIME FOW NOR THE TACO BELL
PLAY OF THE.
TONY MITCHELL.
>> FROM THE PARKING LOT,
MITCHELL WHO STRUGGLED SHOOTING
ALL NIGHT LONG GETS IT AT THE
END OF THE SHOT CLOCK AND
CONCONVERTS.
ALMOST DARING MITCHELL TO SHOOT
THAT.
AND WE KNOW HE DOESN'T NEED ANY
PRODDING FROM ANYBODY TO GET OFF
A SHOT.
TONY MITCHELL.
HOWARD BRINGS IT IN, 23 .5.
FORT WAYNE NOW GO TO 5-0 IN THE
POSTSEASON.
WHREFN STRAIGHT WINS GOING BACK
TO THE REGULAR SEASON.
SHOT MISSED REBOUND MAD ANTS,
CALL OFF THE DOGS AND GAME ONE
ON THE ROAD GO TO THE TOP SEED,
THE FORT WAYNE MAD ANTS.
AND A GOOD VICTORY IN GAME ONE.
102-92 IN GAME ONE.
THEY GO HOME FOR TAWRD NIGHT AND
A CHANCE TO WRAP UP THIS
D-LEAGUE FINAL SEAR.
>> Kristine: FORT WAYNE
UNDEFEATED IN A PLAYOFF,
CONTINUING ON AND HEADING BACK
HOME WHERE THEY WANT TO FINISH
IT OFF.
ONE GAME TO WIN.
THEY'VE GOT TWO TO DO IT EN,
BRETT.
>> IT'S A 10-POINT WIN IN GAME
ONE OF THE 2014 D-LEAGUE FINALS
PRESENTED BY TACO BELL.
MATT BOULDIN AND COMPANY,
THEY'LL GO HOME TO TRY TO WRAP
UP THE SERIES.
BE SURE TO JOIN US SATURDAY
NIGHT 10:30 P.M. EASTERN TIME

WAYNE.
