Danny Schayes tallied 7 in the 2nd and the Generals were up 59-49 heading into the lockers. The Kings clawed their way back into the game in the 3rd and then scored the last 7 points of the frame to take a 4-point advantage into the 4th. James Edwards scored 10 points in the 3rd while Rookie #1 Overall Pick, Reggie Miller, contributed 8. Callaway had a 97-91 lead with 5:47 left on the clock. All of a sudden, the Kings couldn’t buy a bucket. The Generals took off on a 20-2 run that gave them the 118-103 victory. John Bagley scored 16 of his 18 points in the 2nd half, 11 in the 4th quarter. He also had 12 assists, 4 rebounds and 2 steals to take home the game ball. Ellis finished with 23 and Perkins 20. Edwards and Terry Cummings each had 18 to lead Callaway.

Game 3 – The playoff series between the Kings and Generals has featured runs by both teams. Game 3 at the Thunderdome was more of the same as the Kings went on a 24-4 run to end the 1st quarter to give them a 34-15 lead.  The Generals went on a mini-run at the beginning of the 2nd quarter and were able to cut the Kings’ lead to 60-48 at the half.  Jacksonville got as close as 9 points in the 2nd half but could not pull any closer.  Callaway takes a 2-1 game lead in the series with its 133-120 victory.   The Kings 55% to 38.5% shooting from the field and 55-38 rebound margin proved too much of an advantage for the Generals to overcome even with their excellent 22-26 shooting from the free throw line. Dale Ellis just missed a double-double with his 30p/9r performance with Chuck Person also having a nice game with 18p/7r/9a.  The Kings were led by Game MVP Reggie Theus who had 13p/5r and a 20/2 assist to turnover ratio. Rick Mahorn added 22p/9r.
