But now he could not control much of the pace of the game and so he just had to wait to see and do his best, coach Mike realized the same as Jake, but he could not change the style of play because of this, moreover, he trusted Jake and his players for victory.
On the other side was what the coach of the opposing team was wanting to see for that game, as the Elite team was much stronger the best he could do was wait for the opponents to err more so they could have a chance.
Ezra went for a new attack on the Flagami team, Jake was giving him space, but Ezra knew Jake was very good at defense and so he did not want to risk so he passed the ball to the SG of his team, freed from Nathan with a feint and made a mid-range shot to make 2 more points for the Flagami team.

The Flagami team was excited to be having a fiercer game against the Elite team who always won the games easily, yet they did not dare to underestimate their opponents, especially Jake, Carter, and Mark.
Mark despite not appearing much in the game was totally nullifying the Center opponent in the defense and even made a block in that game, besides taking 4 rebounds in the first period of play.
Jake grabbed the ball and advanced calmly to the attack, Ezra was doing a close defense of Jake, even if it did not give many results still jumbled Jake to make the moves, Jake passed the ball to Mark that left the inside area to receive the ball.

This was one of the plays that Jake had trained a lot with Mark the pick-and-roll, it was difficult before because Mark was more in the internal area, but with this new style of play, it was a move that could happen more often.
The Elite team was still ahead at the end of the second period with 6 points, Jake had 12 points and 6 assists in the game so far and got 3 steals, midway through the game the trained Mike put David and Harrison in place of Nathan and Lucas.
Even though the two played less nervous today they still made a lot of mistakes in the attack but were very good in defense and so the Elite team had the advantage but coach Mike was happy to have this game as an example to teach some things for these new players.
The third period was calmer for the Elite team, with Harrison and David entering the team got better in the attacks, in the defense they still managed to hold well and Jake moved more in the defense to seek to intercept more passes and get steals.
Ezra who saw this did not like to be ignored and tried a shot from outside after getting the ball back from the SG of the team to make 3 points for the Flagami team, it was only the seventh point of Ezra who was always worried about Jake in defense , Jake also realized that the opponent was wanting to participate more in the game.
Jake picked up the ball and went to arrange another attack, he passed the ball before reaching the middle of the court for David, David advanced calmly and passed the ball to Carter who was more open at the bottom of the court on the left side this time, when the PF was coming to defense Carter passed to Jake.

Ezra was impressed by Jake's speed of reaction to this move, yet he still had to attack if not his team had no chance to win with the Elite team not missing another attack.

David took the shot from outside and made three more points for the Elite team, so the Elite team continued like this and won by 18 points in the end, Jake made 30 points at the end of the game and made 12 assists plus 11 steals and managed another Triple Double.
Jake would try to increase that record to the maximum he could, but with that style of play it would be harder with the stronger opponents, Jake felt that the teams this year were better, he did not know if it was only in the Miami area or the national championship It would be like this.
Even so, the Elite team was stronger this year and also had reservations in case someone played a game badly, so he was confident in his team.
Lucas was annoyed at being careless in defense which allowed the play of the opposing team, but Jake who received the ball said it was well and started another move for the Elite team.
