Warrens in 2-0 finals lead
NEITHER THE GOOD NOR BAD from Andre Lockhart has changed the ugly of the champs in these finals.
Someone’s definitely overmatched, but it hasn’t been Warrens, as George Farrell came up with another heroic late-game effort in these Premier League basketball finals to put Lumber Company Lakers on the brink of defeat following Sunday’s 73-69 Game 2 stunner at the Barbados Community College.
It’s been the startling twist to a five-game series that the champion Lakers were expected to dominate after knocking the first-time finalists out of the last two postseasons while winning both regular season matchups this year.
More surprising though, were Lockhart’s struggles in the pivotal Game 2, where the star guard literally went from hero to zero – barely missing out on going scoreless after managing a career-worst three points by missing the first 12 of his 13 attempts from the floor.
Not that he was any better from the charity stripe either, having gone one for four at the line while waiting until 3:20 left in the game to register his first points of the contest.
And this was just one night subsequent to what was supposed to be a career-defining moment from Lockhart, who appeared all but unstoppable while delivering one of the all-time finals performances.
Somehow, whether good or bad, these efforts keep getting upstaged.
