Quick recap of the Fanta vs. MJB wager

It’s no secret that Pro-Am has needed a jolt recently. With league night taking over, the game-mode has been dry. This Fanta x MJB wager was the most anticipated matchup we’ve had in awhile. I decided to tune in, clip a few highlights, and review the series, mostly because I don’t have anything better to do. Let’s get into it.

Game One

Fanta and co. entered halftime of game one with a double-digit lead in hand, containing opposing point guard MJB well (2 points, 1-for-5 at halftime). The team quickly saw that lead disappear as MJB managed to get going and pop badge early in the third quarter. The slow start came back to bite them in the end, and Team Fanta took game one relatively comfortably (54-46).

Sidenote: Stylez and Glo played really well defensively in the pick-and-roll together. That is all.
