Thunder booked the remaining Kenya Basketball Federation men's Premier League playoff semi-finals slot after knocking out rivals Equity Bank 79-58 in the decisive quarter-final Game Three at Nyayo National Stadium Indoor Gymnasium on Tuesday. Thunder qualified on a 2-1 basis after both teams had tied the best-of-three series 1-1 in Game One and Two. To break the tie, both sides clashed in Game Three to determine who joins champions Kenya Ports Authority, Ulinzi Warriors and Strathmore University's Blades in the semi-finals. Thunder will now take on rivals Ulinzi Warriors, who eliminated them in the quarter-final stage last year, in the semi-final. The semi-final Game One will be played at Nyayo on Saturday from 3pm. In the second semi-final, champions KPA will renew rivalry with last year's finalists Blades at the same venue starting 4.30pm. KPA beat Blades 3-1 in the best-of-five-series final to lift the title last year. Thunder, who had beaten Equity Bank 70-59 in Game One before the Bankers levelled with a 71-61 win in Game Two last Saturday, got off to a bright start in Game Three with guard Nate Terry and Faheem Juma firing critical three-pointers. No-nonsense forward Kevin Chogo did not spare Equity Bank either nailing nine points with guard Griffins Ligare at his usual best for a 31-12 lead at the end of the first quarter. Equity Bank, who finished sixth in the regular season on 31 points, did not relent as forward Felix Odhiambo combined with Jack Agunda to reduce the deficit. The duo's experience yielded fruit as Equity outscored Thunder 20-18 at the end of second quarter. Thunder still led 49-32 lead at the breather. Equity Bank coach Carrey Oketch, formerly with Co-operative Bank, showed his tactical acumen to effectively rotate his bench for a 13-10 result in their favour at end of the third quarter. Thunder, led by Kevin Chogo who scored 22 points and Griffins Ligare scorer of game-high 23, turned the heat on the bankers hitting them 20-13 in the fourth quarter to proceed to the semi-finals. Nate had 11 points while Michael Munene and Alex Lugasi shot 13 and 11 respectively for Equity Bank.
