It’s Better If I Can’t Win
It’s a practice game between Seirin High and Kaijo High School. The match was held at Kaijo High School. Since the school’s area is very big (wide), Kise Ryota went and pick them up so that Seirin players will not be lost.
When Seirin High arrived at the court, they are surprised that the match is going to be held at a half court while the full court is being used for practice session. Kaijo High School Coach, Coach Takeuchi, introduced himself and sarcastically informed them they will be playing at the half court and hope they do not lose too much. Seirin High School was very angered for being look down after hearing those words.
Kise Ryota was changing for the match but the coach restricted him from playing and he sat on the bench. The match begins with a tip off. The tip off was won by Kaijo High School and they begin attacking. However, the ball was stolen by Kuroko who later assisted the ball to Kagaimi Taiga who finished the play with a powerful dunk grabbing down the rim with him. Seirin High school apologizes for the damage made and soon the match switch to the full court.
The previous play angered Coach Takeuchi and he sent on Kise Ryota for the game. The match resume with a very high pace intensity play from both teams. Kuroko then told his captain that he needs a time out as it is too much for his body and they also need Kagaimi Taiga to cool down. Seirin High School called a time out with the score at 22 (Seirin)-25 (Kaijo). Kuroko then revealed his weaknesses to the team. Seirin also change the defence style from man to man to zone defence as stopping Kise Ryota is the main priority.
The strategy to reduce Kise Ryota paid off. However, the rest of the regular starters are still too formidable for Seirin High School. As Kagaimi Taiga was going for a dunk, Kise Ryota was there to block the shot and went out of bounce. Kise Ryota reiterated that they were too strong for them and basketball is not only about strategies but also body size build. Kagaimi Taiga countered his words informing that it is better that he cannot win. He enjoys and is excited about the challenges ahead and revealed Kise Ryota‘s weaknesses.

Kagaimi Taiga trains alone in a basketball with a determination to defeat the Generation of Miracles after finding out from Kuroko that he will be defeated easily. He went back to school to requesting the basketball captain to play in a game but got rejected as he is only a trial member. So Kagaimi Taiga approached the basketball club coach to become an official member. He found out that he is not the only one but was given a membership form to fill up and return it to her at the school’s rooftop on Monday at 8.40 a.m.
Monday arrived and 5 trials member gathered at the roof top to hand out their forms to become an official member. The coach informed them that they have to announce and pledge that they basketball team will win the championship this year to become an official member. Failing to win the championship, they will be punished by stripping naked at the roof and confess their feelings to the girl they love. Everyone announced their ambitions to win except for Kuroko who was intercepted by the teacher. Everyone got a lecturing for their actions.
Kagaimi Taiga went to dinner at the fast food restaurant only to be surprised by the appearance of Kuroko. Kagaimi Taiga who was curious asked Kuroko why he did not join the Generation of Miracles as he is acknowledged as the phantom sixth man but instead choose a different school and basketball team. Kuroko explains that he found the team lacks something and he wants to win against team therefore he chooses a different school.
The basketball team was playing a practice game for training and was interrupted by the coach who announced that their first opponent will be Kaijou High School. Kaijou High School is not only strong but they also have one of the Generation of Miracles’ player – Kise Ryota.
Kise Ryota who found out the schedule decided to visit Kuroko, his former team mate, at Seirin High School. Kise Ryota was having a little chat with Kuroko and suddenly a basketball was flying straight towards Kise Ryota. Kagaimi Taiga challenged him to a game of one on one which Kise Ryota accepted. Kise Ryota imitated Kaigami Taiga’s game play before dunking on him. He was disappointed with the game and asked Kuroko to join him at his school and become team mates again. Kuroko sincerely declined the offer and told him that he had promises Kagaimi Taiga that together they will defeat the Generations of Miracles.
