Buzzer Beater Gives Bulls Thrilling Victory!

By Colin “Ghost Panda” Mieczkowski

On Friday night, the Windy City Bulls took on the last place Canton Charge, to try to extend their winning record to two games. The Bulls would go on to win the game off a beautiful buzzer beating shot from Jerian Grant, 96-94.

Grant would finish with 20 points and nine assists to go along with six rebounds. With the both sad and happy news that Spencer Dinwiddie signed with the Brooklyn Nets in the NBA, Grant took over the spotlight.

But, it was center Alec Brown who had the best game, winning the game’s MVP award. Brown had his best game of the season, going a remarkable 9-11 from the field, while racking up 8 rebounds and three blocks.

The 7’1” Brown also hit a three point shot in the game. This is something he’s capable of doing on a regular basis.

But, some solid defense from Brown late in the game kept the game close. Then Grant would stare down his opponent like a tiger, and then hit the shot to a win, which brought the Sears Centre into a frenzy.

The play was briefly reviewed, but it was officially good. Had the shot not counted then we would have went into overtime.

For the Charge, it was reigning D-League Rookie of the Year Quinn Cook who took the “charge”. Cook dropped 30 points, and showed why he is one of the most dangerous players in the league.

However, what killed Cook and the Charge was his whopping eight turnovers. Although the game was tight, things could’ve been different had Cook not had all of those turnovers.

Other than Cook, it was Chris Evans who had a nice game, scoring 21 points including hitting three long range shots.

But, it wasn’t enough to stop Grant. Brown and the Bulls, as the Sears Centre fans went home happy. And one of the best duels in the league so far is now complete, thanks to clutch defense and a huge shot.
