Phoenix Rising picks up 3 points and moves them up to a tie for 8th place. This was an important win to keep the Rising in the playoff picture. I'm really liking how Eric Avila has played in the last couple of games since joining the team. He is quickly becoming one of my favorites as we are both Alums of UC Santa Barbara. Jason Johnson has also really stepped up his game since Luke Rooney went down with a season ending knee injury.
