Power looked to be cruising to a win in Miami and clinching a playoff spot as they were up 27-20 at halftime. But, Nate Robinson, Jason Richardson and Amar’e Stoudemire led an impressive comeback that ended with a Nate Robinson 3-point and-1 shot.

Tri-State moves to 3-4 with an outside shot at making the playoffs if they win next week in Dallas, while Power still needs just one more win to shore up its spot.

In the first game of the day, 3 Headed Monsters utilized all their players and showed a dynamic offensive approach as Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf and Rashard Lewis were the only players in double figures. Mario Chalmers returned home to Miami hitting a huge 4-point shot which changed the feel of the game and pushed 3 Headed Monsters forward as the game went on.

Enemies were stuck offensively as Craig Smith was the only player to reach double figures. The 3 Headed Monsters defense held Enemies to just 32 points.

In a hard-fought back-and-forth game between two teams needing a win to keep playoff dreams alive, Ghost Ballers took command early against Trilogy. The recently acquired Chris Johnson gave Trilogy problems in the pick-and-roll and was a huge difference in the game.

As the game went on, Trilogy fought back to make it close as Samardo Samuels did a lot of damage down low. But, Ghost Ballers were able to seal the deal in the closest of the three Miami games.
