Leith Honey Badgers Vs Dunfermline Steel – 23.05.14

With so many teams having similar records in the league, every game is big. Dunfermline Steel were going to be a tough test for the badgers, fortunately LHB had an almost complete line up with Pitor and Mark returning and only El Prez missing.

The Honey Badgers offense was clicking, everyone playing team basketball. Good passing and movement off the ball created space for shots from the outside; Doug, Dom, Andy and Jonathan all sinking 3’s. Some good decision making and interior passing also created opportunities off drives, including one nice behind the back pass from Cobra leading to an inside 2 😉

However the final quarter nearly saw a turn around in fortune. With the Badgers in team fouls, Steel applied pressure and capitalised from the free throw line. With Dunfermline looking to pull themselves back into the game with full court D, it took cool ball handling from Dom to protect the basketball and also the lead, converting from the free throw line to keep Leith ahead and see out the game.
