"Pros vs. Joes" 5/11

Let's meet the Joes who are trying to win $10,000 on the basketball court this week:

Edward Bryan (Morrow, GA)(a two-sport athlete and an Iraq veteran)
David Kalb (Bucyrus, OH)(a warehouse manager and a H.O.R.S.E. hero)
Lazarius "Zeke" Coleman (Savannah, GA)(an MVP while at Savannah State University and a pool manager; stands 6'8")

PROS: Antoine Walker (three-time NBA All-Star with 1,386 career three-pointers and averaging 17.5 PPG in 13 seasons), Robert Horry (seven-time NBA champion with 795 career three-pointers) and Alonzo Mourning (seven-time NBA All-Star, a two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year and led the NBA in blocked shots from 1998-2000)

Matchup #1: The Joes vs. Alonzo Mourning

In "In Your Face", the objective of the Joes is to get into the paint and score baskets; each basket made is worth a point. If Alonzo blocks a shot, the Pros score a point. As usual, three points wins the matchup.

1. Pros (1)
2. Joes (1)
3. Joes (2)
4. Joes- WIN!

The Joes have earned their first three-point advantage this episode.

Matchup #2: Buzzer Beater

Both teams have five chances to score as many points as possible; on each turn, they have five seconds to inbound the ball and three seconds to make a shot. If a foul is committed by the other team, a team's attempt is repeated with an additional second on the shot clock.

PROS:
1. NO
2. NO
3. 2
4. 3
5. NO
TOTAL: 5

JOES:
1. NO
2. 2
3. 2
4. 3
5. NA
TOTAL: 7- WIN!

First time this season a Joes team has won more than one matchup!

Matchup #3: David Kalb vs. Antoine Walker

In this show's version of the game H.O.R.S.E., J.O.E., the only difference is that both players are limited to only one dunk in the game. The first one to light up JOE on the other side wins the matchup for their team.

1. Pros (J)
2. Joes (J)
3. Joes (JO)
4. Joes (JOE)- JOES LOSE

So much for the Joes sweeping the matchups, but they still get a six-point head start in the big game.

DUNKIN' DONUTS $10,000 GAME (half-court basketball like in the season premiere):

AFTER FIRST MINUTE:
Pros: 2
Joes: 10

AFTER SECOND MINUTE:
Pros: 7
Joes: 13 (made four consecutive offensive rebounds at one point; two fouls)

AFTER THIRD MINUTE:
Pros: 10 (one foul)
Joes: 13 (two fouls)

AFTER FOURTH MINUTE:
Pros: 15 (one foul)
Joes: 16 (four fouls)

The final result after that last minute ticks away...














...THE JOES HAVE JUST LET THEIR SIX-POINT ADVANTAGE GO TO WASTE- THEY LOSE, 21-16. Nothing for them as a result.
