Of Course It's Not Easy

First Score!! (初得点！！, Hatsutokuten!!) is the forty-sixth episode and the twenty-first episode of the 2nd season of the Kuroko no Basuke anime.
As Seirin still has difficulty scoring while Yosen makes some baskets, the latter takes an 18-0 lead going towards the end of the 1st quarter. Seirin does not want to end with a 20 point deficit, as a 18 point deficit and a 20 point deficit has a very big difference regarding the team. As Fukui goes to score the last basket of the quarter, Kagami touched the ball, hence it missed. It's the fight for rebound against the taller Yosen players, but Kiyoshi manages to win it with his Vice Claw.
Start of 2nd quarter, and Kiyoshi tries for a post play against Murasakibara, then Kiyoshi throws up a lob for Kagami to slam, attempting for the first points for Seirin. However, Murasakibara has great reflexes that he reacted in time to block Kagami's dunk. Kagami then, while in mid-air, passes to Kuroko, who then makes his Phantom Shot over the quick Murasakibara to score the first points for Seirin in the match. Match progresses on, and Kagami is having difficulties defending Okamura, and Seirin continued to make points. Before the end of first half, Kagami manages to block Okamura, while Kiyoshi uses Vice Claw to grab the rebound, and Kuroko scores a Phantom shot to end the first half 29-17. Second half is about to begin, and two matchups are up for show: Kagami VS Himuro, and Kiyoshi VS Murasakibara. How will the match progress, now that Himuro has started to play his ball?
