In the first half, the Armor led by as many as 13, but Jerome Dyson sparked an 18-2 Tulsa run giving the 66ers the lead. Dyson did most of his damage in transition, shooting 7-15 from the field for a game-high 21 points .
Springfield went cold during that time, being held without a field goal for a span of over four minutes.

With less than two minutes in the game, the Armor cut the deficit to 3, but the 66ers countered with back-to-back baskets from Tweety Carter (18 points) and Elijah Millsap (16 points).
Tulsa had 6 players score in double figures, led by Dysonís 21 off the bench. Cole Aldrich recorded a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds.
The Armor were led by Jerry Smith, who scored a team-high 20 points off the bench. Tre Whitted drew the start in place of the banged up JamesOn Curry and added 19 points, while Gavin Edwards put forth a strong performance with 18 points and 9 rebounds.
The 66ers improve to an NBA D-League best 21-6 record. The Armor fall to 9-17.
