PayProTec: PayProTec is undefeated but showing some cracks. No Moe. No Sean. More trouble. Can PPT win on the outside shooting of Simon?! If all their players show up they are the odds on favorite...but if they don't the championship is up for grabs. Their first opponent are the Dawgs. With their young, upbeat style can give PPT trouble. The Maldonado boys will be a handful for PPT.
Rangers: The Rangers are playing well at the right time. If they can control the game they can win. Tay and Tak are playing on another level. Tak needs to control the ball and run the offense. Inside Szeto needs to play the tough "D" and with the help of JMac off the bench the Rangers will be a lot to handle. Their defense will be challenged by Ivan and TK. I see a lot of points in this #2 v. #3 battle.
Bay Area Kings: The Kings have a hard road ahead of them. They have to get by the Rangers and beat the winner of PPT and Dawgs! All four teams have a chance to win it all. TK needs to led his team with his stellar performance and Ivan needs to continue his high scoring to give Kings a chance to win. The Kings also need a big helping of Elton on the boards versus the likes of Szeto and JMac.
Dawgs: The Dawgs are the fourth seed but they are not playing like a fourth seed! Behind the play of the Maldonado boys, the Dawgs will be a tough out! They will be challenged from the jump. Ryan Sera and Dez will have to step up their game. Their shooting from the outside will help balance the offense. If those things can happen then the Dawgs will be a tough out for PPT.
