However, when the bus nearly crashed into a train and the joyriders were apprehended by the police. However, due to the pull of their powerful parents, both Nathan and Tim were acquitted of any charges and weren't kicked off the Ravens team as most of their teammates were. With the team down in numbers of players, Keith suggested to Whitey that Lucas join the team which caused Nathan, with Tim at his side, to challenge Lucas to a match. Tim initially suggested that they might be able to use Lucas, but Nathan insisted that they didn't need him as he could win the championship single handedly. During the one-on-one, Tim cheered Nathan on and, after Nathan's loss, left the River Court with him and Peyton. ("Pilot")
