Two weeks left before the playoffs start, and there is all sorts of action going on in my league.
In my division, the top team suffered a defeat at the hands of the second-worst team in the league last week. Then this week, they clawed their way back into their matchup against the 3rd-place team only to lose at the last second. As a result, they have slipped to a tie for first place. The next two teams are also tied at one game back, which means one little game separates the top-four teams in a division where only the top three make the playoffs. The team that was formerly in first place has to play the 3rd-place team next week and then finishes up against the team they are currently tied with. That's drama.
But the other division isn't without its own drama. In a preview of what could be the Divisional Championship, the top-two teams squared off in a battle royale. They put up the highest and second-highest point totals for the week. In the end, the second-place team, the team that led the matchup from Monday to Saturday, lost
by only a handful of points as the first-place team mounted a hefty Sunday comeback. Meanwhile, the 3rd- and 4th-place teams in that same division duked it out for 7 days with similar results. The 4th-place team led by a large margin coming into today only to see their playoffs hopes dashed as the 3rd-place team jumped ahead by literally a couple of points compliments of Chone Figgins in the last game of the night.
I don't care what you say, roto's got nothing on that.
