HIDALGO, TX-- The Sioux Falls Skyforce spent most of the last two months making changes to their roster.
This weekend at Rio Grande Valley they saw something else change. Their place in the playoffs.
The Force were swept at Rio Grande Valley, losing 124-106 on Friday and 127-106 on Saturday. One of the players the Skyforce traded this season, Andrew Goudelock, came back to haunt his former team, scoring 27 points in each game.
The losses dropped the Skyforce to 24-23 overall and puts them on the outside of the chase for the final playoff spot looking in.
Maine currently is 8th in the NBA D-League and holds the final playoff spot at 25-23. The Skyforce and Erie (also 24-23) are each a half game back. Fort Wayne is a half game ahead of Maine in 7th at 25-22.
The Skyforce do control their own destiny, however, should they win their final three games, two of which will be at the Arena. Sioux Falls hosts Tulsa on Tuesday night at 7 PM.
