Playing Gritty in the Bluff City


bcc.2                 bcc

Last night was the opening game for the legendary Bluff City Classic and it couldn’t have been any better. The beautiful Grizz Girls and the phenomenal Grit and Grind dance squad came out and pumped up the crowd, and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. Now let’s talk about basketball. All I can say is that the players showed up and showed out. As soon as the game started, you could tell that they were all in it to win it.  The game was an extremely close one with neither the Magic nor the Celtics letting their opponent gain more than a 2 point lead throughout the entire game. In the second half, the Magic made sure to let us know that they refused to be defeated.  Although Celtics players Taylor, Reed, and Green (1, 5, and 20, respectively) did their best to take their team to victory, they were no match for the merciless men of the Magic. Players Crawford, Coleman, and Pelham (3, 10, and 0, respectively) were on fire the entire night, popping dunks left and right, leading their team to a 113-111 victory.


The Celtics come back to redeem themselves Thursday night against the Knicks, while the Magic return to challenge the Lakers tonight at 8pm.
