I've Been Waiting for This (待ってたぜ, Mattetaze) is the thirtieth episode and the fifth episode of the 2nd season of the Kuroko no Basuke anime.
Scoreline is 25-16, with Seirin still in the lead. Kagami showed his improvement by power jumping twice in a row to stop Midorima's fake and shoot. To guard against the fakes, Seirin employs double teaming of Kagami and Kiyoshi against Midorima, leaving the inside wide open. Kuroko sits out because his misdirection is useless against Takao's hawk eye.
The game proceeds with Seirin's fast run-and-gun gameplay but Shutoku follows close behind. The second half starts with Seirin still leading 45-43. When the game develops into a point match and Shutoku's offense power leaves Seirin's far behind, will Kuroko be able to turn the tables with his new drive as the match turns in favour of Shutoku?
