WASHINGTON, D.C. - Yes, you read that correctly. The halftime score is 76-65. That's not the final. We've got 24 more minutes of basketball left.
In front of a packed-to-the-brim Trinity University gymnasium, Washington, D.C.'s Goodman League all-stars have an eleven-point lead over LA's Drew League all-stars. With the game's fast pace and lackluster d - er, I mean, fantastic offensive fire power, what might seem like a decent-sized halftime lead for D.C. could be erased in the blink of an eye.
So far, Oklahoma City Thunder teammates Kevin Durant (Goodman) and James Harden (Drew) have each been the focal points of their respective teams, and it appears the game is shaping up to become a shoot-out between the two.
Harden will have a hard time matching DC's offensive onslaught, as the three-headed monster of John Wall, Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins has produced a number of alley-oops from Wall, rainbow threes from Durant and thunderous low-post slams by Cousins.
The Sacramento Kings' big man, nicknamed "Bad Attitude" by the game announcer, dominated Wizards center JaVale McGee (Drew) during a stretch in the second quarter in which the two went head-to-head, over-powering the lengthy "Pierre" with his strength and showing much better footwork in the low post.
