Well here we are, after another sim day, and I completely forgot to give yall my recap from last sim! So ill speed through those three games quickly, and get us all caught up by the end, y'all ready?

When we last left off the Dallas Rangers has just made two solid trades to strengthen the teams starting rotation, and giving them a legit 6th man of the year candidate, while the Rangers took 1 of 2 games from the Calgary Charge, and also beat the Mamba in that sim. What happened once Joey Croshere and Brett Johnson got into town? Or also known as, what did we do last sim? A smooth 3-0 was the results actually!

First game up was against a struggling Oklahoma City Outlaws, where the Rangers thoroughly outplayed them racing to a 27 point margin of victory. Higher scorer was Chris Cunningham with 35, and he was also the top rebounder with 13 earning himself a double-double. Barry Burns dropped 10 dimes to go with his 18 points for his own double-double. Clifford Steele would be the third Rangers player to earn a double-double on this day with his 11 rebound, 11 point performance. Team leader Rick Lawson struggled with his shot shooting 13-28 (still better than Cunninghams 13-29) while he notched 31 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 5 steals for the young man. Another typical Rangers home double you.

Next the Portland Rhinos traveled into town to take on the Rangers on their home court. This game wasn't as easy as the last game vs OKC but rest assure they did win by 8 points. Chris Cunningham flexed his scoring muscles by dropping 40 on the Rhinos head, he also lead the team in rebounds with 14, earning yet another double double. This guy is a double-double factory! .Barry Burns led the charge from the point with 12 silky smooth assists to pair with his 3 rebounds, 2 steals and 7 points. Other notable mentions in this game belong to Rick Lawson who shot 8-22 and 7-8 from the Free Throw line for 28 points, he also had 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals, 2 blocks on his way to absolutely stuffing his stats sheet. Joey Croshere shot 7-14 including 3-6 from 3 point land and a perfect 5-5 from the line. He also managed 3 rebounds, 4 assists and one block to go with those 22 points. Finally Cliff Steele just narrowly missed his double-double with 9 rebounds, and 10 points before ultimately fouling out after just 26 minutes on the floor. Second Dub.

Finally onto game 3 of this sim. This game seen Dallas go on a road trip, to OKC to play them again for the 2nd time in three games. Even on their home court, Dallas was just too much for them pushing themselves to an 18 point victory by the score of 102-84. Rick Lawson took his familiar spot as the Player of the Game after being this games leading scorer with 39 points, he also had 10 rebounds for a double-double, 4 assists, 2 steels and 2 blocks. Chris Cunningham had himself a solid game as well, even though he fell short of his infamous double doubles. He had 18 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists 2 steals on the day. Joey Croshere scored the second most points for the rangers shooting 8-17 for 20 points, he also had 9 rebounds, 2 assists 5, yes count them 1, 2, 3, 4,FIIIVEEE steals, and a turn over. Burnsy was quiet on this night shooting 4-11 for 9 points with 3 rebounds, only 2 assists and 1 block. Cliffy Steele also fell short of a double double with 8 points, 15 rebounds 2 dishes and 1 block. Coming off the bench Brett Johnson scored 6 points, 5 rebounds, 6 assists 3 steals and 1 block in 32 minutes on the floor. This game made it 4 straight wins for Dallas as they begin to heat up. Still early in the season, with lots of time for them to cool off, but if your like this reporter, you hope they stay hott all season long lets go baby!! Record 18-5
