An early preview of the 2019 NBA season

The NBA season is less than a month away for us to watch. It might seem like a long time, but it’s very near us.

This past offseason, you probably saw some of your favorite players switch to different teams, including 2 of the biggest NBA stars leaving their teams to go to Los Angeles Clippers: Paul George and Kawhi Leoarnad.

The first two games played in the 2019 season will feature last year’s NBA champs, the Raptors, vs the Pelicans, and Lakers vs Clippers to end the opening NBA night for the fans.

The teams that seem to be favorites to win the NBA title are the Clippers, Lakers, Celtics, Rockets, and yes, still the Warriors. All have chances of winning this year’s NBA title.

For a lot of basketball fans, this year should be more exciting and competitive after trades and front office moves made teams more even.

This season also will be very hyped for new rookies taking the spotlight including #1 draft pick Zion Williamson, which experts placed in the top 70 players in the NBA already, and he hasn’t even played in an NBA game yet.

Well, it’s going to be an exciting season this year, and I look forward to seeing it and I hope you guys are too.

Highland Park girls basketball game

On Thursday, December 13th, Higland Park High School’s girls basketball team had their first game against Tartan High School. Tartan High School is a public school located in Oakdale, MN. Tatarn this year had a record of 0-4, going into the game, while Higland had a 5-1 record.

On the Highland Park C-team, there are many girls who have never played basketball, and as the season continues there has been a huge improvement in their skill level.

At 4:00 p.m. there was the C-team game. Highland ended with a loss, but the score didn’t stop their motivation.

At 5:30 p.m., our JV game played. As the game started, there was a malfunction with our score board. The score board wouldn’t mark points, so the time scorer had to keep track of our score until we could get it to work. The timer continued to work as normal but not having points made it difficult to determine what the team needed to do to win the game.

After halftime, the score board began to work. The score was 9-32; Highland felt defeated.

Fresham Littia, and sophomore Readeat, came back with 3 point shots but it wasn’t enough to take a win. Sadly, our JV team ended with a loss.

JV coach Mr. Chapman, a behavioral specialist as well as the girls basketball coach, said, “Girls, this was not a loss we played good, we matched their intensity and put up a fight, I am happy with this score.” This gave the the girls motivation.

Nataile, a junior player on the team, made sure we were aware as well, “Guys, we did so good, our defense was great we just need better offense good work.”

The team chanted “Highland on 3,” and we cheered. We realized as a team that our victory will come, it just takes time and patience.
