The Slingers had a much better second quarter, outscoring the Dragons 27-26 but their poor first quarter meant they still trailed by 13 points (34-47) at half time.

The Dragons took a 20-point, 68-48 lead into the fourth quarter. Although the Slingers outscored the Dragons 23-18 in the fourth, they lost the game 86-71.
