Wood grabbed a double-double with 24 points and 14 rebounds, while Robinson scored 21 points and grabbed nine boards.

South Bay relied on Blue’s big scoring performance (38 points, two rebounds, two assists, three steals) to keep them in the game, but only had two other Lakers reach double figures: Machado (16 points, eight assists) and Zubac (26 points, 12 rebounds, three assists). Demarcus Holland had his best all-around game of the season with nine points and nine rebounds, while Alex Caruso stuffed the stat sheet as well (eight points, nine boards, seven steals), but the balance of Delaware proved to be too much. South Bay did convert all 18 of their free throws, the first time they didn’t miss from the charity stripe since March 23, 2010, when they hit 8-8 from the line.

Man of the Match…

Jack Harrison

The winger always looked like the most likely source of a goal to break the deadlock and he delivered it in fine style with a crashing finish under Blake after a clever run around the back of the Philadelphia defense.

It wasn’t just his goal which caught the eye on the night – he was a constant menace to the Union backline, slaloming through challenges and exchanging passes with teammates throughout the contest.

A Perfect Match: The Canon 11-24mm f/4 Lens and the Newest NYC Subway Station


In what was a somewhat passed-right-through part of Manhattan, a new “neighborhood” is emerging and at its heart is a transportation link. Nothing new, really, for the City of New York—neighborhoods have always followed the availability of transportation. From the ferries and then bridges that connected Brooklyn to Manhattan, to the growth of The Bronx when the IRT arrived; this is just the way it is. And to be sure, this new part of town is not a pastoral neighborhood-to-be, but its hustle will never become a bustle without the new Hudson Yards subway stop.
