Fresh from their best performance of the young season The Ride is looking to build momentum ahead of the league dividing into top and bottom tiers. Their place secure in the top tier, this is a game that they can use to iron out the ongoing shooting woes.
Last week The Ride took down Touch of Grey 64-41. It was an all around team effort with 4 of 6 players in double figures led by Ned with 17 and Big Al with 13. Meanwhile on the defensive end, Syed spearheaded a great defensive effort. Syed had 3 steals and his pressure at the top of the zone generated 4 steals each for Ry and Mike as they picked off passes to the wings. The Ride held the league's second leading scorer, Alon Sadeh, to 11 points, 20 below his season average; and kept Touch of Grey 18 points below their team average.
This week The Ride meets an unknown quantity in a new member of the league, Tune Squad. Tune Squad is 2-2 with their two wins against very bad teams (BBB & Untouchables) and their two losses against two good teams (HD Staff & Those Bros). Across their 4 games they are being outscored by an average margin of 60-43. Tune Squad is led by Joseph Janjicek who is averaging 12.25 but has a high game score of 21, beyond Joe, they do not have another scorer averaging double figures.
Prediction: The Ride 74 - Tune Squad 37
