Giants 64-82 Phoenix
The Giants took on their local rivals the Cheshire Phoenix in another tough encounter. Whilst the Phoenix had the better of the first quarter, putting up 26 points, the Giants roared back in the second bringing it back to as few as 3 points, before going in 8 down at the break. Poor shooting in the third held the Giants back, 10 points to Cheshire’s 18 gave the Phoenix an unassailable 16 point lead going into the forth.
Again, three point shooting was the Giants’ Achilles heal, going 1/20 (5%) from behind the Arc.
A highlight for the Giants was a dunk by Dickerson after going coast to coast from a steal that will live long in the memory.
