Dartford Sharks I v Guru

Tonight’s match was a chance for the Sharks to continue their winning ways leading into the Cup Final on Saturday. In preparation for the match the Sharks were sent a memo that stated the following.

Four things that kill offense:

1. Lazy screens

2. Slow cuts

3. Lack of movement

4. Holding the ball

This was meant to remind the Sharks of how to play winning basketball. However a clerical error occurred and the memo that went out read as follows

Four things to create a killer offence

1. Lazy screens

2. Slow cuts

3. Lack of movement

4. Holding the ball

Unfortunately for most of the game the Sharks followed the incorrect memo which surprise led to many offensive mistakes which Guru capitalised on. This led to huge frustration from the Sharks as they couldn’t figure out what was going wrong. Guru had good energy throughout the match and made some difficult shots. The Dartford Sharks tried to rally but when it seemed like we were about to make a run we became our own worst enemy and forgot to play as a team.

All in all not the best of efforts from the Sharks and a strong game from Guru led to a deserved win by Guru.

There will be a full investigation into the clerical error to ensure that such a mistake does not happen again.

The Sharks have 1 day off to rest up and regroup ahead of the Cup Final on Saturday where the Sharks will look to 3peat as Cup Champions.

A short memory is what the Sharks need to prepare for the final.

Final Score : 71 – 86
