My wife and I finished up the 2014-15 season recently (75 total games, with the Warriors and Rockets each playing everyone else in the league plus each other twice, and 17 other games involving other good teams). Once I get all the stats done I will post the results (spoiler, Warriors went 26-4).

We just started the 1980-81 season. The plan here is to play a double elimination tournament with a longer championship round. We hope to actually crown a champion. There are 23 teams. We made 7 groups of 3 teams (picking out of a hat), where each team in the group plays the other 2, and 1 group of 2 where they play each other then each play a game against a surviving team. That will be round 1.

The 1980-81 groups are as follows: (1) NYK, KC, Pho, (2) Chi, Den, Mil, (3) SA, SD, Phil, (4) Dal, LAL, NJ, (5) Wash, GS, Bos, (6) Det, Port, Clev, (7) Sea, IND, Hou, (Cool Utah, Atl

KC 98-94

Group 1 is tough, with Phoenix finishing 57-25 in real life, the Knickerbockers 50-32 and the Kings 40-42. Otis Birdsong makes KC interesting, having averaged 24.6 ppg. He could score inside and outside at a high percentage. The Suns had a balanced scoring attack with 3 players averaging btwn 18 and 19 ppg.

KC started this game hot, scoring 32 pts in the opening quarter (Birdsong scored 15 pts), and led 32-18. The scoring was just about reversed in the 2Q as Bill Cartwright finally got going (he started the game 1-13 then went 10-15 the remainder) and the halftime score was KC 50-49. Knicks guard Ray Williams (their shooter, the only player w/ a shooting rating about 0) fouled out early in the 3Q (my wife hates playing safe), but the Knicks hung in and the game was tied after 3Q. The game remained close in the 4th but KC was able to squeak out a narrow victory, 98-94.

Birdsong was an efficient scoring machine, putting up 41 pts on 20-31 shooting. Reggie King (13 pts, 12 RBs) and Scott Wedman (12 pts, 12 RBs) had double doubles for the Kings, and center Sam Lacey added 13 RBs, 5 Assists and 6 Blocks.

Cartwright led the Knicks with 30 pts and 14 RBs. Michael Ray Richardson had a nice complete game of 15 pts, 8 RBs, 6 Assists and 4 Steals.

KC 1-0
NYK 0-1

PHO 121-93

Needing a victory to stay alive in this double elimination tournament, the Knicks were blown out, despite an impressive 38 pt (17-30 FG)/10 RB performance by Ray Williams. But he was outdone by the balanced scoring attack of the Suns who had 3 gentlemen score 20+ (Truck Robinson 28 pts/15 RB, Walter Davis 22 pts, and Alvin Adams 21 pts/10 RB/8 A, nearly a triple double).

The Knicks were let down by shooting (38-87 FG, 44%) and defense (Pho shot 52-93, 56%) and passing (14 assists for the Knicks to 24 for the Suns).

Sly Williams and Bill Cartwright each had 18 for the Knicks. Rich Kelley earned a new nickname, point-a-minute Rich, as he had 18 pts off the bench in only 18 mins of play.

PHO 1-0
NYK 0-2 (eliminated)

Next up is PHO at KC

KC 115-107

A tight game throughout btwn 2 teams at 1-0. The Kings pulled away at the end, thanks in large part to some great passing by the big man, Sam Lacey (3 dazzlers late in game). The Suns again had a balanced scoring attack w/ 3 players scoring 20+ (Dennis Johnson 23 pts, Walter Davis 21 pts and Alvin Adams 20 pts/6 A). But the backcourt of the Kings outscored those 3 by themselves, as Otis Birdsong (39 pts on 19-25 FG) and Phil Ford (37 pts, 15-16 FT, 8 A) combined for 76 pts.

For the Suns, Truck Robinson had another double double w/ 15 pts and 11 RB and Johnny High scored 15 pts on 7-8 FG before fouling out early in the 3Q. Sam Lacey led the Kings w/ 8 A.

A key to this one was turnovers, with Phoenix turning the ball over 21 times to only 8 for Kansas City. Offensive rebounding kept the Suns in the game, as they had 22 to only 11 for the Kings.

KC 2-0
PHO 1-1

next up is Group 2, with Den @ Chi leading things off

Chi 114-113

The refs didnít let many things go in this one, as they called 9 fouls on the Nuggets in the 1st quarter and for the game 26 on them and 30 on the Bulls. Chicago led 34-29 after the 1st and 58-50 at the half. The Nuggets made a run in the 3rd after Reggie Theus went to the bench in foul trouble and Ricky Sobers [barely] filled in. Dan Issel and David Thompson each scored 11 pts in the quarter and Denver led 86-78 going into the final stanza. Issel fouled out halfway through the 4th, as did Theus. Sobers returned and did a more than serviceable job this time, scoring 7 points and dishing out 2 assists in the final 6 mins. Billy McKinney was next to go with 4 mins remaining. Though he led all scorers w/ 35 pts in the game, Thompson missed a pair of field goals and 2 free throws down the stretch, and the Bulls were able to squeak one out.

Artis Gilmore was awesome for Chicago with 29 pts and 17 rbs. Theus scored 28 pts in 30 mins. Alex English finished w/ 22 pts (and 13 rbs) on 10-20 shooting but kept the Nuggets in the game late as he made his final 7 shots. Issel had a nice double double of 24 pts and 10 rbs.

Chi 1-0
Den 0-1

Next game is Chi @ Mil

Game 5 Chi @ Mil
Chi 123-119

A great game and comeback! The Bulls led most of the way, and were up 10 pts after the 3rd quarter, but the Bucks stormed back, led by 19 4th quarter points by Marques Johnson. In fact, with just over 2 mins to go Milwaukee took a 5 pt lead. But Marques missed 3 shots down the stretch (including a 1-16 attempt) and the Bulls finished strong (including a 3 pt play by Artis formally known as Gilmore).

Marques led all scorers with 38 pts and also pulled down 10 rebounds. No other Buck had more than 14 pts. The Bulls had a more balanced scoring attack, with Reggie Theus leading the way w/ 29 pts and Gilmore 27 pts and 14 rebounds. Larry Kenon chipped in 18 pts, Bobby Wilkerson 17 and Ricky Sobers 15.

Chi 2-0
Mil 0-1

Next game is Mil @ Den
