While they are moving in the wrong direction, 76ers Gaming picked up a big win, knocking off Knicks Gaming in a tight matchup that went the distance. 

It was all about Radiant in this one, as his 54 points in the deciding Game 3—and his 37 points in Game 1—proved too much for the Knicks to overcome. 

76ers Gaming moved to 4-8 with the win, while Knicks Gaming dropped below .500, moving to 6-7.

In the night's final matchup, NetsGC pulled off the reverse sweep despite being outscored by 19 points in their three-game series win over Pacers Gaming. They also showed a flair for the dramatic with some game-breaking plays in their two wins.

NetsGC dropped Game 1, 80-55 despite Choc's 29 points, but the point guard put the team on his back in Game 2 with 36 points and nine assists in a 71-69 win. His buzzer-beating layup off an inbounds pass proved to be the difference.

NetsGC squeaked out another nail-biter in Game 3, but their defense shined this time. Up 75-73 with time running out, the Nets forced the Pacers into a tough fallaway mid-range jumper that did not connect.

Shuttles corralled the rebound and tossed a baseball pass to Randomz, who put the game away with a layup with 1.1 seconds left. Shuttles was the hero in this one, as his offensive rebound and putback dunk put the Nets up 75-73 with 28 seconds left.

Choc posted 31 points and 13 assists, and Shuttles added 24 points and 13 rebounds for the 7-4 Nets. Jomar averaged 25.6 points per game in the series for the 4-7 Pacers.
