Power looked to be cruising to a win in Miami and clinching a playoff spot as they were up 27-20 at halftime. But, Nate Robinson, Jason Richardson and Amar’e Stoudemire led an impressive comeback that ended with a Nate Robinson 3-point and-1 shot.

Tri-State moves to 3-4 with an outside shot at making the playoffs if they win next week in Dallas, while Power still needs just one more win to shore up its spot.

In the first game of the day, 3 Headed Monsters utilized all their players and showed a dynamic offensive approach as Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf and Rashard Lewis were the only players in double figures.
