With lockout passing at 10am AEDT today, we're now into our final matchup of the season with lots of great games taking place across the three leagues.
Before we move onto the games, a reminder that the promotion/relegation rules are posted HERE
Also, we have two TS NBA Supercoach leagues. One currently has 11 in it and the other has 7. It would be great to fill at least one of them, so join this league if you are keen, and the 7 in the smaller one should move over as well. Our TS NBA SC league finished in the top 20 leagues once a few years ago.
In the Premier League, @stowie and @Rad_E_Cool are up against each other in the Final! Good luck fellas. Find the Grand Final Box Score HERE.
These two teams finished the season ranked 3rd and 4th by win-loss record, but 2nd and 5th respectively by total points scored.
Coming from different conferences, they have faced off just once this season so far, with Rad_E_Cool taking the honours 1564.6 to 1191.1 back in week 6. BOX SCORE
Both teams had convincing wins in the semi finals, each against the top ranked team from their own conference.
Rad_E_Cool is going for his first Premier League Championship, whereas Stowie aims to return to the winners list, having won the PL chip three times in successive seasons from 2015 to 2017.
In Division 1, my team @anthak has qualified for the Final, and I'm up against @Rev who has been setting the pace all season. It's now been confirmed that both these teams will be promoted to Premier next season. Interestingly, if Rev wins this game, @bgt2110 will be the third team promoted, and if I win this game, then @dabombers will be the third team promoted; so both those guys will likely be watching the grand final with vested interest!
In Division 2, @Belmont383 is versing @Sparks . The seasons of these two teams have gone in opposite directions. Sparks went through the first 11 games undefeated beating all other teams in the league, before they stuttered a bit, losing 3 of their next 6. Whereas Belmont is currently on a 9 game winning streak after losing 5 of their first 8 games. All 5 promotions from Div2 are now confirmed, with @KAT4MVP , @Don_Cottagers & @Eggrobber joining the two grand finalists.
Good luck to all the grand finalists!
Other notable games
We have two other games which will determine relegations!
In Premier League, @Bearfly is fighting to stay up in the big league in a matchup against @smokinjoemisiti . If Bearfly wins, @tyze1 will be relegated in his stead. The two confirmed relegations are @Jmulldihno and @Mick Webb
In Div 1, @Steve is fighting to avoid relegation in a matchup against @karlos . If Steve wins, @Esther will be relegated after only missing the playoffs by the narrowest of margins (76.8 points!), however Esther had their chance to save themselves last week in an epic matchup against Steve. Hopefully Karlos is around to make a game of it, because he currently has 4 players listed as Out and another DTD.
Good luck to all!
