            Game 45 of the OBWL was like the other 26 losses for the Blackjacks. The Blackjacks looking to rebound after a pounding in Indiana faced off against the Chaos of Los Angeles.  The first quarter started off good as the Blackjacks lead 35-32. Roosevelt Woodworth started the 1st quarter off good with a couple of baskets to help give the Blackjacks the lead. But as in the previous game against Indiana, the Blackjacks fell quickly as they trailed 62 to 59 at the half. 

             By the time of the second half Las Vegas was feeling the heat. the Chaos kept pressure on the Blackjacks. and by the end of the third it was 62-to 59. The fourth quarter was a back and forth contest as both teams struggled to take command.  but with 26 seconds left in the game with the score ties 112 to 112  Brian Montes passed the ball to Andrew Culberton who takes a shot from the right wing to give Los Angeles its 20 win of the season. 

            The Blackjacks tried to even the score up  but Nelson Jones shot from the left baseline failed to connect.  The Blackjacks dropped to 19-26 only one spot out of last place in the division.  Even tho his last shot failed Nelson Jones lead the team with 24 points  and 8 assists. Hugh Denton put up 20 points and 5 steals.

             The Blackjacks are on the road for three more games facing Detroit, Boston and Tampa. Detroit is struggling at 13-33. While Boston and Tampa lead their divisions. this is looking like a tough few games for the Blackjacks.
