Killer 3’s well-rounded attack, led by Stephen Jackson, CJ Watson and Donte Greene, was not enough to stop 3’s Company after Andre Emmett’s monster performance. Things got chippy late in the game when Dahntay Jones and Stephen Jackson went back-and-forth.

Led by Andre Emmett, 3’s Company had a tremendous second half, outscoring Killer 3’s by 14. In a game that meant a lot to both teams’ playoff hopes, Killer 3’s eventually fell 51-41 and 3’s Company went on to win its third straight game.
