Also scoring in double figures for the Pilots (7-4) were Alec Wintering and Thomas van der Mars with 15 points apiece, the latter adding eight rebounds as the team won for the fourth time in the last five outings.

The Braves (5-6), losers of four in a row and six of the last seven after winning the first four outings of the campaign, were paced by Omari Grier with 17 points, thanks in large part to his perfect 4-of-4 effort behind the 3- point line. Auston Barnes pitched in with 10 points.
