Two Wild Wins

1 Apr 2018

The Bruins' Patrice Bergeron scored with four seconds left to force overtime, make the Over, and deny Marta (32) her third straight GridCard win. This late goal crowned JohnnyRan (37) King of the Mountain along with  GB55 (37) who first scaled the peak late Saturday night. GB55 had survived his own wild finish in the Raptors' loss to the Celtics when Marcus Morris was fouled--roughly and unnecessarily--as he dribbled out the clock--two points shy of the O/U at 109-99.

After Morris made his first free throw with 10.9 seconds left, he and DeMar DeRozan were assessed double technical fouls for barking at each other and Morris was ejected, slapping the ref on the butt before leaving the Garden to a standing ovation. Jabari Bird replaced Morris at the FT line and clanked the second free throw, preserving the Under and lifting GB55.

Altogether, five Gridders--including Jeepcreeper (31)--took down the PGT which was won by AFED (30). Rookie, Big E, took third place and put up a stellar (35), one of just four players who survived the Pirates vs Tigers postponement unscathed. Shortly after this discouraging loss of 76 points to start a GridCard game, the GCC decided to adjust the Cancellation Rule to allow a make-up--at GCC's discretion--in cases such as yesterday when the make-up date is announced immediately and the game is played the next day.
