The Raiders eventually claimed a 24-23 lead at the half even as they shot only 2-of-7 behind the three-point line in the frame.
For more than 39 minutes the teams remained within four points of each other and it wasn't until Cerroni stepped to the line down the stretch that Green Bay gave itself some breathing room.
