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
