"Napier was aggressive from the start and didn't let up as he attacked the basket with each passing opportunity but also mindful of getting his teammates involved once the defense collapsed on him. He finished with 22 points to lead all scorers and racked up 13 free throw attempts, mostly as a result of his effective penetration, and also had two assists and two rebounds."

"In an overpowering first half display, Gilbert — who plays his high school basketball at Millers Grove in Georgia — scored a majority of his 13 points, pacing the North Carolina-based Team CP3 to a 44-29 edge. He then controlled the tempo in the second half as Chris Paul’s protege’s earned a critical 81-66 victory, all while "limiting" Monk to 21 points by forcing him to shoot 7-for-20 from the field."
