After two weeks of play, two teams — Power and Trilogy — remain undefeated, while Tri-State and Killer 3’s remain winless. But, overall, each game was fairly close, with the biggest margin of victory being 13 and the other three games being within six.
Game 1: Ball Hogs versus Tri-State
- Score: 50-44, Ball Hogs
Former Clipper Rasual Butler had 19 leading his team, along with Derrick Byars, who also had 19 points, to the six point victory. Notably, Butler, and the Ball Hogs as a team, shot 50% or higher — something that has been rare in this league thus far.
Game 2: Trilogy versus 3 Headed Monsters
- Score: 50-37, Trilogy
In the most lopsided game of the week, Al Harrington led Trilogy to the win with 20 points on 5-9 shooting (9 points from free throws). Both teams shot in the 42-43% range, so it seems like this game came down to free throw scoring, as Trilogy outscored the 3 Headed Monsters by seven.
Game 3: Power versus Killer 3’s
- Score: 50-45, Power
Although the Killer 3’s lost, they were able to add Chauncey Billups back to the lineup (who will not be the Cavaliers’ general manager any time soon). In the loss, Billups had 15 points on 4-11 shooting with two four-point shots. Stephen Jackson led the Killer 3’s in points with 18, while Reggie Evans had eight points and six rebounds. Former Clipper Brian Cook had zero points.
Cuttino Mobley led the Killer 3’s into their demise by putting up (an inefficient) 23 points. With Cuttino putting up half of the needed point by himself, Paul McPherson and Deshawn Stevens putting up 10 and 15 respectively was just about enough to win the game.
Game 4: 3’s Company versus Ghost Ballers
- Score: 45-50, Ghost Ballers
Ricky Davis was able to come out victorious versus against 3’s Company and their two former Clippers — Ruben Patterson and Al Thornton. None of them played especially well, however: Davis had four points on 2-8 shooting; Patterson had two points; and, Al Thornton had 11 on a respectable 4-8 shooting.
