The thrill and heartbreak that permeated Game 7 of the 2016 World Series between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians might not have yet subsided for fans of those teams. Highlights of that epic contest have continued to roll into mid-November, and now there is a stop-motion re-enactment of the games most memorable moments.A team of animators known as thefourmonkeys released on their YouTube channel earlier this week a video that relives Game 7 using Lego-like OYO Sports mini-figures.The minute-long video begins with Dexter Fowlers leadoff home run off Corey Kluber in the first inning, complete with Rajai Davis leaping attempt at the center field wall. Next is Javier Baezs opposite-field home run in the fifth inning, followed by?Jon Lesters wild pitch that led to two runs for Cleveland in the bottom half of the frame. Cubs catcher David Ross falls backward as the ball skips away, and the Indians Jason Kipnis chases?Carlos Santana home with a head-first slide at the plate.The animators would be remiss if they did not feature Davis game-tying home run off Aroldis Chapman in the eighth inning, and they even nailed small details such as the ball nicking the left-field camera and LeBron James muscle-flexing reaction.Special effects that simulate rain set the closing scenes, as thefourmonkeys capture the tense weather delay, with umpires conferring, the tarp coming onto the field and even the Jason Heyward-led team meeting in the clubhouse.The video concludes with Ben Zobrists game-winning double down the left-field line?in the 10th inning and the series-ending play on which third baseman Kris Bryant throws across the diamond to retire Michael Martinez.According to thefourmonkeys website, the team is a family of four that prefers to remain anonymous by referring to themselves only as monkeys. They revealed that they use a MacBook computer with Final Cut Pro and Dragonframe stop-motion software along with a Canon EOS T2i camera to develop most of their videos.-- Nick Ostiller If Round 8 was crazy, then Round 9 was pure carnage. The ups and downs of the ladder and trying to figure out playoff spots would baffle even the great Stephen Hawking.Four out of six road sides took home the chocolates during Round 9 and somehow glued to the bottom of the ladder are the two sides who met during the 2015/16 NBL Grand Final.The MVP race could go to a number of players; Casper Wares arrival has been untouchable, Rotnei Clarke has finally regained his form and looks unstoppable, whilst Casey Prather and Jerome Randle continue to do all that they can for their sides.Fans couldnt ask for any more than what this season has thrown up and with 10 rounds still remaining, things can only get crazier.So who and what stood out the most during Round 9?Were going streakingIts an infamous movie line from Old School. Frank The Tank Ricard urges an entire party to go streaking through the quad and up to the gymnasium, unfortunately for Frank; nobody joins in.No-one is interested in streaking along with Frank; its not a great look.For Perth and New Zealand, they find themselves in a very similar situation. Currently riding 4-game losing streaks theyre all on their own, running down a dark road trying to find their way. Can they turn things around and climb back up the ladder or are they destined to continue streaking down that dark road?Lock Down MentalityOnly two rounds ago the Adelaide 36ers were a struggling desperate side, with a season record of 3-6 things were looking dire.During the 36ers 3-game losing streak, they gave up an average score of 103.75. They knew what they were lacking and where their focus needed to lie. When teams go through losing slumps players emotions can overcome them and we saw this happen during a 36ers training session.Luckily for 36ers fans, things have turned around. Currently riding a 4-game winning streak, the 36ers look committed and focused on the defensive end; giving up an average of 84.3 points per gamme.dddddddddddd.Cant stop the RotCoaches, at times, have to make tough decisions for the good of the team, Rob Beveridge was tasked with that after a 15 point loss to the New Zealand Breakers in Round 7. His star player and former MVP Rotnei Clarke wasnt performing to the standard he could achieve.So Coach Beveridge made the bold move to bring Clarke off the bench instead of starting games.With Clarke starting, Illawarra went 4-6. Since coming off the bench, Illawarra are 3-1. The move lit a flame under the former MVP and Illawarra have looked like a new side.Still seeing a tick under 28 minutes per game, Clarke is averaging 23.2 points since the change whilst shooting a flaming hot 54.8% from deep.Tame CatsThe fortress that usually is Perth Arena has major cracks appearing as the Wildcats have now lost their last two games at home.Over the last three seasons, the Wildcats have played 50 games at home and 47 on the road. Their winning percentages during those games are 78% at home and 46.8% on the road.They rely heavily on winning their games in-front of their home crowd to ensure they can secure a playoff berth. With their home now not looking as secure as it was in years gone past, are the Wildcats on the verge of missing the playoffs for the first time since 1986?Not Safe at HomeIn this crazy season that were enthralled in, home court advantage doesnt seem to be a factor. With six games taking place during Round 9, only two sides who held home court walked away with the victory.One of those sides was the 36ers who have the worst home court record of any team and the other was Melbourne United who now, after the win, own a better home record.Gone are the days of feeling safe within your own surrounds, teams are walking into opposing stadiums with a renewed confidence and making things all the more interesting.
