The Bears anchored by their stellar defense jumped out to an enormous 47-23 lead into half time. It was an offensive showcase in the first half, filled with alley-oop dunks, fast break dunks and 3s from all over the court. Scoring was led by Jordan Mathews who paced the team with 19 Points off of his 5/8 3-Point shooting. Ivan Rabb controlled the paint and the boards with 7 rebounds in the first half. Defense was also a huge factor forcing 3 shot clock violations in the first half alone.
The second half wasn't much different as the Bears played sound defense and continued shooting efficiently from the field. Turnovers were an issue as the game went on, but that was masked by superb shooting night from Jordan Mathews, Jabari Bird, Ivan Rabb and Jaylen Brown.
