Emperors take down Extra Joss Fighters

After three consecutive century posts, Extra Joss Fighters could not sustain the hot-streak as they went down to the Emperors 77-90 in the Cambodia Basketball League at the Olympic Stadium Indoor Arena yesterday.

It was a two-point game at the end of the third quarter for the Emperors, who clawed their way back after trailing the Fighters in the first and the second quarters.

first half and NSK Dream beat CCPL Warriors 60-50.
