Shore Shack looks to take down undefeated Gale Force
GARDEN CITY: Week 6 Predictions
By Anthony Leo | Garden City Co-League Coordinator
Jeurys Familia (3-1) vs Monstars (1-4)
The Monstars are struggling to get anything going on the right direction and tonight it won’t get any easier against Jeurys Familia. Mike Mastro and Jeurys Familia will look to make quick work of the Monstars tonight with their high-powered offense. The Monstars are one of the worst defensive teams in the league and Jeurys Familia leads the league in points per game. It’s a terrible matchup for the Monstars and I don’t think this game will be close. I expect Jeurys Familia to come out firing hitting open threes and put this game away.
PICK: Jeurys Familia
Savage Storm (2-2) vs Red Storm (3-2)
Savage Storm is back off their bye week and right out of the gate they have to take on the Red Storm. Steven Medard and Red Storm are coming off a tough loss and will be looking to get back in the win column tonight. The matchup to watch in this game is Medard and Matt Mehler. Both are built totally different but end up with the same results every game. Both are double-double machines and sometimes even put up triple-doubles. Savage Storm had their time off to get ready for this game, but Red Storm is the superior team on paper and on the court. Red Storm should be able to defend well enough and win this game.
PICK: Red Storm
Threat Level Midnight (3-1) vs CST Elite (1-4)
Threat Level Midnight is the best defensive team in the league and tonight they will take on a struggling CST Elite team that has had a lot of problems. If CST Elite doesn’t come out ready to give some effort on defense and change things up they will get dominated by the versatile attack of Threat Level Midnight. Donte Howell leads the league in scoring and tonight he should be in for another big night scoring the ball. Howell and Brandon Perez should be able to control this game from the start and get an easy W.
PICK: Threat Level Midnight
Gale Force (4-0) vs Shore Shack (3-1)
Two of the hottest teams in the league will face off tonight. Gale Force has rolled through the competition against the bottom half of the league and tonight will be their first real test against a much better Shore Shack team. Shore Shack already has one quality win over Jeurys Familia and they will be looking two make it two quality wins tonight.
Shore Shack and Gale Force have two of the strongest starting lineups in the league and both play similar styles at a fast pace. They key to this game will be how well Shore Shack rebounds the ball and defends Richie Byrd. If Byrd gets his way and creates offense for others it will open up the offense for Gale Force. Shore Shack is a very athletic team and they should be able to defend well. In the end I think the game comes down to the final few minutes and someone will need to make a big shot or get a stop to win the game.
PICK: Gale Force
