Then the game started, we played hard but it came down to the wire. A 14-14 game to 16. It was time to put the clamps on, no points allowed. They passed the ball around the key carelessly, and I took advantage of it. I went out picked off one of the passes and all of a sudden we now had the upper hand in the game that would send us to the championship.
We escaped with a victory by only two points. I love watching basketball, whether it be the very intense moments for a playoff game or my favorite team when they play any old regular season game. Watching solo is fine, but it brings me even more joy when I get to enjoy a game with my friends.
“You’re not trying hard enough,” she told them. While she never quite said it in words, she let them know that a Black person shouldn’t be number one…” (pp. 42-43).

It was like we were living in one of our best dreams. The parents were like 50,000 fans at the NBA game 7 of the finals in Cleveland vs. Golden State. The other team was upset they lost are we congratulated them and shook hands and told them good jobs which really it was a really intense game the whole way though. We had won the game and made an amazing comeback probably the best comeback in 7th grade is basketball history if you ask me.

I went to kick the team stole the ball away from A person on my team got the all and kicked it back to me because she was cornered and I was her only chance. The seconds were ticking: 20 seconds left.

Also in the state semi finals game the referee try to throw the game by making bad calls but they still end up winning. Even though in both movies the faced problems in 42 the treatment was
One game left. The game that determines if you make it to the state tournament or not with 50 seconds left and I have possession of the ball. What do you do in a moment like this?
