While the Warriors (6-3) struggled against the Magic (3-6), CB13 put on one of the performances of the night, scoring 99 points in three games, including 51 in Game 2—the club's only victory of the evening.
The Magic, however, stormed back in Game 3, outscoring the Warriors 20-13 in the fourth quarter to notch a one-possession victory with Profusion coming up big in the final frame.
Heat Check (2-6), meanwhile, benefited from point guard GlennRatty dropping 42 points in Game 3 to help propel Miami to victory over Philadelphia (1-7). Game 3 saw GlennRatty hit 18 of 26 field goals with five assists to pull off the six-point win and grab the series.
It's been a slog of a season for 76ers GC, but point guard Radiant scored 49 points in Game 1 and 37 points in Game 2, giving the club plenty to build on moving forward.
The Jazz (7-1) left no doubt in their rout of Gen.G (5-5). In Game 1, guards Splashy and Lotty each scored more than 20 points, while all five starters scored in double figures in Game 2. The Tigers simply couldn't keep pace.
The Mavericks (8-3) closed out the evening by avoiding becoming the first team to fall to Boston (0-9) this year. Point guard Sherm shot 21 of 30 from the field combined for 48 points and seven assists.
Boston came within two possessions of forcing a Game 3 with a 17-10 run in the fourth quarter, but Dallas was able to clamp down in the final minutes and finish the sweep.
