Down the stretch, Mack took the game over by driving and slicing to the basket for several critical layups as he led the Playaz back from a 13-point fourth-quarter deficit to a 75-73 victory over the New York Panthers. He finished with 26 points on 11 of 17 shooting, 3 blocks and 1 assist.
Seagears, who was not on the floor during the game’s final minutes, ended with 10 points.
“We were talking a little but, but it can’t be too much conversation at the time because we’re going against each other,” Mack said. “When we [are] playing with each other, it’s all love. But for now I gotta go at his head like he’s a stranger.”
