A promising start fell flat as the Sioux Falls Skyforce fell to the Tulsa 66ers 88-83 on Friday night in NBA Development League action.  Sioux Falls led 28-18 after the first quarter, but that was as good as it got as the Skyforce (20-13) hit a third of their shots the rest of the way.

Demetris Nichols backed up his big night on Tuesday with 25 points with Mychel Thompson and Mark Tyndale each netting 13 points.  Tulsa (17-15) got 18 points from NBA vet Rasual Butler to help capture the win.  The two teams will face each other again Saturday night.
