It feels like a year back when Warriors took series to the wire after going down 3-0 to Power. This post season’s finals Warriors went 2 up, lost 3 straight and forced a game 7 on Wednesday night after breaking Power’s lethal weapon-speed and beating their high court press in the final quarter of game 6.
Having been at the last two finals, each winning one, there could be no better final than Power-Warriors. Going to the wire makes it even
more interesting as what started as a best of seven turns into a best of one.
It will be a battle of point guards, Ivan Enabu and Ben Komakech as they have been the best players for Warriors and Power respectively. Enabu who had a great regular season, has scored 82 points and dished out 31 assists in the last six games will be playing for his first championship while last years MVP, Komakech who has poured in 94 points and 27 assists to his name will be out for a back to back.
After keeping out the Malinga brothers in Power’s wins, Isaac Afidra and Michael Kojjo will have to be no different as Warriors’ Michael Karuiki’s defensive rebounding must improve to stop Isaac Afidra, Michael Kojjo, Ben Komakech and Joseph Ikong’s offensive picks.
