Play-Off bracket1
Co-Op Bank lead Nairobi City Thunder - Dec 6, 2016

What was expected to be a competitive series ended up being a one-sided affair for Co-operative Bank as they lead Nairobi City Thunder 2-0 in the Kenya Basketball Federation men's Premier League semifinal playoffs. The absence of Thunder's lynchpin Griffin Ligare (174-G-85) could have contributed to the bankers' lead. Ligare did not play the entire period in game one due to injury. He sat out of game two on Sunday and the team was not in their normal shape without his presence. Even though assistant coach Sadat Gaya had earlier told Sports News Arena that Thunder is not all about Ligare, it was evident that he is a key player and his contribution was missed. In the two games, Thunder showed minimal willingness to push Co-op Bank to the limit losing both by big margins. On Saturday, the bankers won game one 79-52 with James Mwangi scoring 20 points. Co-op Bank won all the quarters 18-12, 20-17, 23-14 and 18-9 respectively.
Game two on Sunday followed the same script as the bankers led from the start to win 82-53 win. They won first quarter 24-9 and the second tied 16-16. Thunder won the third 19-17 and Co-op Bank the fourth 25-8. The bankers had their biggest lead of 29 points in the fourth quarter at 80-51. Khaemba Situma scored 16 points for Co-op Bank and Mwangi added 14. Kevin Chogo was Thunder's top scorer with 18 points. A win in game three will see the bankers qualify for the finals to play the winner between Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) and Ulinzi Warriors. Thunder must win the remaining three games to reach the final.
KPA and Ulinzi are tied 1-1 after the dockers won game one 77-72 and the soldiers claimed game two 67-66.
