As expected, Miles Bridges followed up his 38 point performance in the semi-finals of the Moneyball league with another 30+ performance and a bunch of dunks in the Moneyball Championship game on Thursday night. Unfortunately, his impressive put-back dunks and 35 points, which included a few 3-pointers, wasn’t enough as his Green team fell to the Black team 93-82.
For me the most shocking moment came in the final seconds when Miles missed a wide-open between-the-legs dunk. I’ve seen this guy do contest-winning dunks for almost an hour straight and probably only miss 1 out of every 5 attempts. And that’s why I wouldn’t be surprised if a NCAA and NBA dunk contest win is in his near future.
