Alan Anderson scored 10 points, and Jannero Pargo added nine to give Johnson some help, but the Triplets remained largely a one-man show with the seven-time All-Star at center stage. 

Jarrett Jack scored a team-high 18 for Trilogy.


Tri-State 50, Ghost Ballers 42

Jason Richardson's 22-point, nine-rebound effort spearheaded a relatively easy 50-42 victory for Tri-State over Ghost Ballers.

Tony Wroten and Earl Clark chipped in nine points apiece. 

Mike Taylor's 19 points and seven rebounds were not enough for Ghost Ballers to avoid their first loss of the season.

3 Headed Monsters outscored 3's Company 27-20 after trailing by three points at the break.

Killer 3's 50, Aliens 47

Donte Greene had a team-high 21 points and C.J. Watson and Franklin Session each had 11 as Killer 3's avoided dropping to 0-3 with a 50-47 win over Aliens.

The battle of previously 0-2 teams went down to the wire, with Killer 3's coming back from a four-point halftime deficit.

Brandon Rush led the way for Aliens with a game-high 22 points, and Andre Owens added 15. However, the scoring elsewhere was minimal, with the team's big men struggling to make an impact inside.
