FRISCO, TX - The Texas Legends (18-16) fell in a heart-breaking fiasco in the final seconds of the season-ending match against the Maine Celtics (21-13) 109-110.

The first quarter saw eight lead changes, but Olivier-Maxence Prosper and Tony Bradley combined for 23 of the Legends' 33 points to forge a seven-point advantage at the quarter break. With just under five minutes to halftime, Tyler Hall knocked down his second outsider of the quarter to give the Legends their largest lead of the night (+14).

A 10-0 run to start the third put Maine within three, but Texas responded with seven unanswered and held a 98-88 lead going into the final. The visitors chipped away at the difference, tying it up midway through thanks to a long jumper from Jordan Walsh. The next four points came from Maine, but Erik Stevenson and Prosper teamed up to even it out with one minute to play. The final seconds saw a turnover and a miss before Walsh wound up at the line sinking one of two with .4 on the clock to take the victory.
