With The Brotherhood going down, No Limit may find themselves atop of the rankings after taking care of business against Run TMC in a 101-86 win.
No Limit moves to 6-0 and looks like a legit championship contender, especially given the nature of this win.
Run TMC used a hot start from John Rullan to jump out to a 14-5 lead. For at least the first half, it looked like Run TMC was playing their best game of the year and looking confident as they started the third quarter tied at 48. No Limit then used a 27-14 third quarter advantage to pull away, using their usual balanced attack as five different players finished in double figures.
Impressively for No Limit, they recorded the win with their typical shooting threat Howie Miller having an off night. Miller finished with 12 points, but made just three of his 10 three-point attempts. Teammates like Jalen Graham and his 26 points were able to pick up the slack. Graham, who had been missing the last few weeks, enjoyed a triumphant return.
“He started out a little rusty but he turned up in the second half,” No Limit’s Ronte Byrd said of Graham.
Graham was a little rusty to start as No Limit fell behind early. Once the shots started falling for No Limit, Run TMC couldn’t find an answer despite playing one of their better games of the season.
Despite the slow start, No Limit kept to their usual sound offense and only committed two turnovers on the night while forcing 10 steals.
No Limit will face Lob 203 next week, but their eyes seem to be set on what will be an epic week eight matchup against The Brotherhood.
