2K9 SPR Top Plays of Week 11 (Playoffs Rd I)
Psst... hey, can't sleep? Need a little something to get you pumped for that playoff game tomorrow? Here's a little midnight snack... -- FBNYC
Still looking for teams to get on board the FBNYC "Balls of Fury" express.
ANALYSIS: Due to the unfortunate schedule conflict with the CK Sports Tourney in Queens, this one might be hard to call, especially with the much improved play of the NYC Quicks. After a 2-8 regular season (but a huge momentum-building blowout victory win to finish the season), QIK went to Ft. Lauderdale and put up an impressive showing at Chinese Nationals. They kept their streak alive last week with an impressive win over G.o.D. in the first round. It's all about making buckets. They have enough skill players to create shots and when they make them they're hard to stop.
For NYF, 5/8 of the team will be coming from CK, the 3/8 Chinese portion will be ready to go. What they have over QIK is a size advantage and enough speed at the guards to match-up. Chang may not be big enough to eat space the way GOD (C) Len Kamdang (22 pts, 20 rebs) vs. QIK; but he's a better defender and shot-blocker. Which should help NYF contain QIK (G) Dave Wong from shredding the defense as he did vs. GOD.
X-FACTOR: Quicks are only gonna have five guys so they need everyone to step up. They're going to put up shots. Their x-factor is how high a percentage they make. Which segues to the Fury. Defense. (G) Steve Chen, (F) Fred Han, (F) Daniel Kweon and even their best player this season (F) Joe Kim (last season's Def. MVP) like to get it started on defense. If they keep up that defensive pressure, there's no reason they shouldn't advance. -- Kenny "The Jet" Li

ANALYSIS: The Gritty put away a typically scrappy Average Joes team early in the 2nd half and looked ready to keep on trucking to the Chip. But, they're going to have to do it without (C) Elbert Kwak who had to leave the team for a dentistry residency in Hawaii. Not having Kwak is a major loss considering the bulk of SLA's stalwart (C) Jiang Yu but the scales have balanced. Initial impressions are that perennial All-FBNYC (F) Harris Chung will not be available for the game.
But, the Slayers are used to winning without Chung this season. Not the same for Gritty without Kwak. All-Star starters (G) Jason Chin and (G) Kenneth Van will have to step up and milk their advantage at least in the marquee. Van's size at the guard position will give NGC the advantage that SLA should have had with Chung. He could be the determining factor.
X-FACTOR: Last week, NGC's x-factor hinged on whether or not (G) Nikul Patel would step up and he did in the 1st half, carrying the offense for a late-arriving Jason Chin. This week, everything rests on (F) Victor Chia's ability to take up space in the paint and limit former HOP teammate Jiang Yu's touches. For the Slayers, Yu will get the lion's share, and command attention in the paint, the others just have to make open jump shots. -- Bill Wonton
