Teams are starting to separate themselves in the 2023 BIG3 standings as the league begins its playoff push. Last week saw the six games with a 9.2-point average margin of victory. Point differential is the tiebreaker when it comes to the BIG3 standings, which gives Triplets (4-1) the edge over Power (4-1) atop the pack. They are the league's only four-win teams entering the Week 6 BIG3 schedule, and Triplets have a matchup with the Killer 3's (3-2) on Sunday, while Power will face Enemies (3-2). You can stream Sunday's action live on Paramount+.

The six-game slate will begin at 1 p.m. ET from TD Garden. Another anticipated matchup will see the league's leading scorer in Michael Beasley attempt to lead 3's Company (2-3) to back-to-back wins as they match up with reigning champion Trilogy (3-2).

BIG3 predictions, picks for Sunday, July 30

Before tuning into Sunday's BIG3 action, you need to see the BIG3 basketball picks from SportsLine expert Brad Rowland. Rowland has covered the basketball world full-time since 2012, beginning with coverage of the Atlanta Hawks for various outlets. He has bylines for several national outlets and has been credentialed to the NBA Finals, Final Four and FIBA World Cup. He is also the host of the Locked on Hawks podcast and has been on the SportsLine staff since 2019.

For Sunday's BIG3 action, Rowland is backing Tri-State (2-3) to prevail over Aliens (0-5). Aliens have used a unique approach to roster construction since no BIG3 team has fewer former NBA players. The squad is made up of mostly international players, and the strategy hasn't paid off this season. They are the league's only winless team, have the worst point differential and have lost four of their five games by double-digits.

Meanwhile, Tri-State won their first two before hitting a skid. However, they are led by two-time NBA Slam Dunk champion Jason Richardson, who could be this year's MVP. Richardson is doing it on both ends, as he ranks in the top six of the league in points, rebounds, assists and steals. There's also quality depth behind him, so Rowland confidently backs Tri-State to end their losing streak.

"Tri-State is coming off three straight losses, but Jason Richardson is a tremendous force in averaging more than 18 points and eight rebounds per game," Rowland told SportsLine. "On the other side, Aliens are in the league's basement and the only team without a win this season." Stream the BIG3 games on Sunday here
