The first BIG3 Celebrity Game is in the books, and Rob Gronkowski's Team WeBull snuck away with a 45-44 win over Nelly's Team Price.com.

That came in large part to the strong performance of recording artist Gillie Da Kid, who posted 19 points of 7-of-11 shooting from the field:

While Gillie Da Kid closed the contest, it was Gronkowski who opened the scoring for his squad:

Gronkowski and Gillie Da Kid were joined by entrepreneur Wallo, recording artist Ozuna, Harlem Globetrotter Crissa Jackson and Yahoo Sports reporter Chris Haynes.

Turns out Haynes has scoops on the court, too:

NLE Choppa tried to keep his squad in the game, meanwhile, hitting the always risky four-pointer:
