The Lakers topped Mavs Gaming 74-60 behind 20 points and 14 rebounds from Arshia “Krazy” Karimi. Jarvis “Jarvis” Thompson put up 20 points for the Mavs.

Celtics Crossover Gaming and Hawks Talon GC both kept alive their chances of grabbing direct postseason bids by winning their Thursday games. The Celtics demolished NetsGC 90-52, and the Hawks nipped Raptors Uprising GC 68-64.
