NYPD Blue: The Backboard Jungle

During a basketball game, in the projects, 2 men are shot dead and several wounded. The dead men worked for opposing drug dealers and Simone and Sipowicz reckon the shooting was drug related. The game had no police presence, on the recommendation of Lt. Fancy, who was persuaded to keep it low profile by local Brother Kwazi. Fancy gets the blame for the trouble and Sipowicz squares up to Kwazi and gets accused of using racial language. The fight is witnessed by a reporter who also saw the shootings, but declines to give evidence. Fancy and Sipowicz confront each other about the 2 incidents.
