It's Not How You Start, But How You Finish. - Oct 28, 2012

Sometimes this quote can come bite you in the back side and other times it can help you overcome a lose. A lot of times teams start off the game very good because of many reasons but they don't withstand that same drive throughout the game, giving the other team that edge. Other times a team starts off so bad and sluggish in the first quarter that when they finally get down to business it's just to late to get over that mountain to win. This very quote sums up our team in the first 5 minutes of these first few games.
Our first game we beat STU Tbilisi 94-62. But don't let the score fool you, they came out with a great urge to win but just couldn't maintain it for 40 minutes against us. This game we got a wide variety of help. My co-American had great first game debut scoring 17 points and pulling down 14 rebounds. I ended the game with 21 points, 4 rebounds, 4assist and also 4 steals. Energy Rustavi also got helped from our Georgian Partners, Mikheil, Levan, Luka, Gorgi, Revaz and Q for chipping in well rounded numbers to help us get the much needed win. The first game is always filled with a little nervousness and jitters especially when you got so much emotion build up. Whether its good or bad emotions we all want to get on the court and show the world what we have. So every first game you have to be ready to knock down every negative obstacle in your way. That can be anything from the refs to the gymnasium your hooping in. This brings me to our second game we played yesterday. Once again the visiting team Samedicino looked very good early in our home court. We ended the first courted down 21-14. Going to the huddle we all knew that we wasn't playing our best and that for the sake of the home crowd we needed to pick it up. So we came together as a team and put those handcuffs tight around their wrist and held them to only 6 points in the second quarter. Allowing us to force 26 turnovers in the game. We crushed our opponent 79-57, which allowed us to empty our benches and give players that don't normally play the opportunity to put some numbers up. I ended the game with 20 points, 5 rebounds, 4 ast and also 4 steals. We building a very good chemistry between the team as well. Worth to mention Julie pulled down much needed rebounds during the game which gave us more opportunities to fast break. Another part of the game I thrive on. During my first year of college I always remember that my coach use to tell me to never make the game harder than what it is.take what the defense gives you and you will succeed easily. And till this day I try to incorporate that into my everyday basketball game.
Next weekend we will have a good game vs Dinamo. That should be a true test for our new season. For all my family and friends back home I will post a link during this week. Appreciate the support. Looking forward for my agent to come visit me from Israel.

Always remember what we don't start today won't be finished by tomorrow. Knowledge and intelligence are both useless without action. Nate Bowie (183-G-86, college: Cent.Arkansas)
