The Bears did fight back from the early pressure as they reduced the lead to six points just moments later. Tawiah, however, made it eight points in the opening stages with another layup assisted by Spencer. Soon after, Blayne Freckleton opened his account with a customary three pointer.

Jordan Spencer then added to his tally for the evening with back-to-back layups with both Mike New Jr, Spencer and Freckleton adding successful three point attempts of their own to the scoring to give Breakers a 22 point lead. The dominance continued as Buai Luak opened his account with a dunk before Luke Gregory and Will Issekya added points of their own to bring Breakers lead to 29 points with two minutes left in the opening quarter.

Leon Henry opened the scoring for the Breakers in the second quarter making shots from both inside and beyond the arc, with New Jr and Spencer doing the same shortly after. To their credit, the Bears were determined to reduce the deficit and continued to attack the basket, but the Breakers proved too much with their attacking efforts. Dante Langley and Luke Gregory ensured the difference stayed above 30 points, before Spencer, Freckleton and Langley pushed the advantage to 39 points.
