In game 3, the Sioux Falls Skyforce fell today as well 103-88 to the Bakersfield Jam. Demetris Nichols led all Skyforce players with 22 but it was just too much Jam all game.

Overtime will be LIVE again on Tuesday from the Reno Events Center beginning at 4pmCT as we will chat with Skyforce Head Coach Joel Abelson, Utah Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey and many more guests.
This event is a great opportunity for the players to "showcase" their skills to scouts and Day 1 was a success.
