The best for the losing side was American Mike Harris (198-83, college: Rice, agency: IPZ) with a double-double by scoring 24 points and 25 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Hotshots (7-1) have an impressive series of five victories in a row.
