Maybe it's time to open a first thread on the polish part of Interbasket Forum and it's hard to find a better topic than play-offs.
Quarterfinals were pretty boring here:
Prokom Trefl vs SKS Polpharma 3:0
Anwil Włocławek vs Turow Zgorzelec 3:0 (Turow is the biggest disappointment of 05/06 season)
Polpak Swiecie vs Stal Ostrow 3:0
Czarni Slupsk vs Slask Wroclaw 3:1 (Wroclaw won one road game, but later lost both home games)
Yesterday's game between Prokom Sopot and Czarni Slupsk was the beginning of semifinals (best of five system), Prokom won 80:70, but Czarni put a good fight, finally M.Burneika did something positive (3/3 for 3), but Kikerpill was Kikerpi-killed by Prokom defense. At halfitime score was close, but Prokom made a big run in 3rd quarter (thanks to good performance by Dylewicz, Wójcik and Atkins) and won. Next game on sunday.
Today Anwil Wloclawek and Polpak Swiecie will start their fight for a final spot, Anwil is of course a favorite, especially with starting center of Polpak Steve Thomas (11.3 PPG, 10.0 RPG and 1.3 BLP) being questionable because of an injury, Polpak for sure will have to plai without Lepinaitis and Frank, two important role-players. But they can surprise people and Rick Apodaca is a very competetive, so they will fight.
PS. I reccomend to everyone Jeff Nordgaard's blog on official site of polish league, you can read it here (english only) - http://www.plk.pl/?sub=blog&id=227&nid=1280
