Seirin fight!

Seirin fight!

Kuroko goes back into the game, with Shutoku leading 76-68. Kuroko takes on Midorima and easily passes through him with his Vanishing Drive. Seirin scores 8 consecutive points and is tied 76 apiece at end of 3rd quarter. 4th quarter gets under way, Kagami dunks on 2 Shutoku players, but Midorima answers with a 3-pointer. Both teams are not backing down with less than 30 seconds on the clock, when Otsubo's shot puts Shutoku up 104-103.

2nd Vanishing Drive on Takao

Kuroko uses Vanishing Drive on Takao again

Kuroko passes Takao with his Vanishing drive again, and passes to Kiyoshi. With his legs already at their limits, Kiyoshi still attempts a dunk, but is disrupted by Midorima, and the latter picks up the foul. Kiyoshi makes the first free throw, but misses the second. Kagami gets the offensive rebound and goes for the final second dunk which Midorima attempts to block. Will Kagami force it in for a Seirin win or is it just going to be at 104 apiece to go overtime?
