Jun Navarro heated up and caught fire to give planet a 21-20 lead with 5:29 left in the first half.

In the 2nd half, Justice went to big man James Collins and Kin Charfarous for the easy bucket inside, giving Justice the 10-point lead two minutes into the 2nd half. Justice's defense played a big factor as they manned up on Jun Navarro and stopped Planet from making a comeback. Justice forged a 22-point lead their highest of the game at 57-35 with time winding down.  They held on for the win, 61-42 and more importantly, this year's championship title.
