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.
The Fighters’ half way lead of 51-43 disappeared as the Emperors took a one regulation basket lead into the crucial fourth quarter, which they closed out strongly. In Saturday’s matches, holders Pate 310 beat Magellan Knights 81-37 after a 40-7
first half and NSK Dream beat CCPL Warriors 60-50.
