The Killer 3’s and Triplets faced off for the 2019 BIG3 Championship. Coach of the Year Lisa Leslie, MVP Joe Johnson and the Triplets took on a hungry Killer 3’s team featuring Stephen Jackson, Frank Session, Charles Oakley and company.
Triplets, the number one team in the league, continued their hot streak in this one as Joe Johnson, who finished with 28 points, flourished throughout this game. Leading by as many as ten points, Triplets let their lead slip to Killer 3’s late when the score was 41-39. After that point, they’d go on to score nine straight including a game winning three-pointer from none-other than Joe Johnson.
Last week, Johnson, 38, reportedly had a tryout with a few NBA teams, including the 76ers, Bucks, and Nets, and based on his performance in the BIG3, Johnson probably will get another shot in the NBA. Johnson last played in the NBA in 2018 with Houston.
