Series Tied 1-1

The game was highlighted by a 34-26 fourth quarter by the Hurricanes, who continued to take the ball outside to their perimeter shooters (15-29 from beyond the arc).

Joel Friesen led the Hurricanes and the game with 28 points on 8-12 shooting, including a 7-10 night from behind the arc. Garrett Williamson led his Lightning with 23 points.
