After two straight disappointing offensive games, The Ride hopes to rediscover their touch against the last team they put up big numbers against. The last time out against Touch of Grey, The Ride put up 96pts in an easy victory shooting 65% from beyond the arc. They also took great care of the ball assisting on 28 FGs while only turning it over 12 times. There were 5 players in double figures that day, led by 25 from Syed and 22 from Ry.
The Ride is mired in a season long slump shooting under 50% from the field and under 25% from 3. A game against an older, slower opponent could be just what they need to get back on track before the league is shuffled into upper and lower tiers. This game will provide an opportunity to try and recapture some of the offense that has been missing, while continuing their strong defensive principles.
On the injury front, Syed is recovering from his FNI and has been largely pain free this week. When asked about the injury he reiterated that he's "almost 100%, taking it day by day, and just hoping to get back to doing the little things again like hunting for steals".
The Ride 65 - Touch of Grey 48
