Teams came out stronger, hungrier, and more strategic, but, notwithstanding the couple of missed opportunities in the shooting circle.

The match-up between the Flames and the Aloes saw a lot of turnovers with the ball going up and down the court. The Flames put tremendous pressure on the Aloes forcing them to make many errors and capitalizing on that but could not end in the winning seat as the Aloes edged the win with 2 goals.

While talking about capitalizing on errors, this was highly noticeable in the games between the Diamonds and the Comets. Although the Diamonds led for three quarters, the Comets came out to win the game 51 – 47. This again was a testament to teams not being able to sustain full momentum throughout the game.
