Justin Hurtt
Reno B. - Bakersfield J. 109-114
The Reno Bighorns (2-3) fell to the Bakersfield Jam (5-3) in a thriller Monday night, 114-109. Utah Jazz assignee Kevin Murphy missed a three-pointer to tie the game with 8.6 seconds left in the game. The Bighorns and Jam played close all night, with 11 lead changes in the game. The Jam took 16 more free throws than the Bighorns, making 87.5 percent of them. Darnell Jackson (6'8''-F-85, college: Kansas) led the Bighorns with 22 points and seven rebounds. Murphy (18), Anthony Richardson (16), Garrett Temple (14) and Antoine Wright (14) all recorded double-digit points for the Horns. The Jam were led by Stephen Dennis (6'6''-G-87, college: Kutztown), who had 24 points and 6 rebounds. Atlanta Hawks' assignee had 21 points and 10 rebounds for Bakersfield. Damion James (6'7''-F-87, agency: Priority Sports, college: Texas) added 23 points and 11 rebounds. The Bighorns will now hit the road for the first time this season, as they take on the affiliate of the Los Angeles Lakers, the Los Angeles D-Fenders this Thursday and Saturday. Reno will return home on January 4th against the Sioux Falls SkyForce. Courtesy of:

Maine RC - Canton C. 103-90
Seven players scored nine points or more. The point guard recorded 10 assists. It is not a coincidence. Maine Red Claws point guard Shelvin Mack (6'3''-G-90, college: Butler) played one of his finer games in what he hopes is a short NBA D-League career, leading Maine to a 103-90 win Sunday over the Canton Charge. Mack scored 18 points, including three of four 3-pointers, to go with his 10 assists and five rebounds. An NBA backup last season, the 6-foot-2 Mack continues to demonstrate why the Red Claws drafted him in the first round (fourth overall) in the D-League draft. He kept Maine's offense humming against the Charge. "He's our the floor general," said 6-7 forward Kris Joseph (6'7''-F-88, college: Syracuse), who led all scorers with 21 points. " (Mack) does a great job of getting guys involved, especially guys he feels should be more aggressive. He gets the guys in good situations to score." Joseph, one of two Boston Celtics on the Red Claws, has experienced the Portland-Boston I-95 shuttle often this season. Just this past week, he was recalled by the Celtics on Tuesday, and then sent back to Maine Friday. "It's nice to go (to Boston) and hang out with the guys," Joseph said. "But I also like being here and playing and getting my reps in." Maine's other Celtic, 7-foot center Fab Melo, missed his second straight game because of a strained quadriceps. With the win, Maine's third straight, the Red Claws improved to 5-2 and continue to lead the D-League's East. Sunday's performance was thorough as Maine never trailed after the first quarter and stretched its lead by as much as 25 over Canton (2-5). "Really pleased with the effort," Red Claws Coach Mike Taylor said. "To get three wins in four days is fantastic. Right now the team is in a very good place." On defense, Maine held Canton's three starting guards to 3-for-21 shooting. Mack and Xavier Silas applied much of the pressure in the back court. "We're just playing hard," Silas said. "When I come in, I just pick up (on defense) full court and trying to disrupt their offense. We just had a good effort all around on defense." Besides Joseph and Mack, Maine was led by newly-acquired forward DaJuan Summers (6'8''-F-88, college: Georgetown) (15 points), center Chris Ayer (6'10''-C-83, college: Loyola Mary) (14) and guards Micah Downs (13) and Silas (11). Chris Wright (6'1''-PG-89, college: Georgetown) grabbed eight rebounds and scored nine points (while going 1 for 5 at the foul line). "Six guys in double figures. Could have been seven if Chris Wright could make a free throw," Taylor said with a smile. Canton was without 6-8 forward Kevin Jones, who was recalled by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Jones had been leading the team with a 23.6-point average. The Cavs did send down 6-10 forward Jon Leuer, a second-year NBA player. Leuer notched a double-double with 15 points and 13 rebounds.

Iowa E. - Erie Bay H. 104-92
On the heels of the worst home loss in franchise history, Iowa Energy coach Kevin Young and point guard Chris Wright found a way to keep their team on its toes. Young made Justin Hurtt (6'5''-G-88, college: Tulsa) and Nick Murphy (6'4''-G/F-88, college: Jacksonville St.) his starting wings Sunday, surrounding Wright with a junkyard dog and a cool cat. Together, they propelled Iowa to a 104-92 victory over the Erie Bayhawks before an announced crowd of 2,906 at Wells Fargo Arena. Wright had a game-high 31 points and nine assists while playing all 48 minutes. He got to the basket with ease, then hit long-range jump shots, and finally found his way to the free-throw line 10 times, answering every adjustment Erie made. 'In shootaround, and (Saturday) in the film, the coaches were adamant about, Attack, attack, attack. Put pressure on their bigs and see what comes up,' ' Wright said. 'Something positive came up, and I just stayed with it. Then they started sagging off and I started pulling up, and the rest is history.' Iowa (2-3) was demolished in its building 111-74 by Texas on Friday. Less than 48 hours later, with a five-game road trip looming, the Energy returned in full desperation mode. Wright kept things steady in the first half, which ended with Erie (2-4) leading 44-42. Murphy, Wright's fellow team captain, provided the intensity. And then Hurtt arrived in the third quarter, scoring 18 points in that decisive frame after going scoreless in the first half. The team's first-round draft pick finished with 30 points. Hurtt hit his initial 3-pointer in the second half, then passed on a shot from the arc the next trip downcourt, dribbling inside and losing the ball out of bounds. Young admonished him to shoot the ball. The message took hold. 'I'm still trying to figure him out. He's a guy where it's all confidence with him,' Young said. 'Part of basketball is a psychology thing. You've got to get in these guys' heads and figure them out. That's part of the reason I started him tonight. Maybe it didn't click until the second half. Maybe tonight will be a real sign to him that he can play in this league.' Murphy, one of two holdovers from last year's Energy team, received some motivation from his coach as well. Young let him know that, statistically, he had the worst defensive rebounding percentage on the team, goading him into getting back to the no-holds-barred dynamo he was at times last year. Murphy responded with 12 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals. 'I think Nick was MVP today,' Wright said. 'He's just a workhorse. He's one of those players who doesn't need plays called for him to be into the game. He has a knack for being around the ball.' The only negative for Iowa was guard Mustapha Farrakhan being limited to 5 minutes after pulling a hamstring. Young didn't have a prognosis for him yet. But he did have a healthy appreciation for what Wright, Hurtt and Murphy provided his team. 'I don't know if you can have a must-win five games in, but tonight was basically a must-win,' Young said. 'I didn't tell them that. I told them all but that. But they knew. 'I was so embarrassed of that performance (Friday). And I felt like how we were going to respond to that embarrassment that we put on the floor was going to be critical.' Courtesy of:

Tulsa 66ers - Rio Grande VV 85-81
Jeremy Lamb (6'5''-G/F-92, college: Connecticut) scored 13 of his team-high 21 points in the fourth quarter as the Tulsa 66ers defeat the Rio Grande Valley Vipers 85-81 at the Spirit Bank Event Center. It was Tulsa's second win over Rio Grande Valley in as many days. 66ers Center Daniel Orton (6'10''-F-90, college: Kentucky), an Oklahoma City native, posted a double-double (10 points, 10 rebounds) which overshadows a poor night of shooting from the floor; knocking down just 3 of 11 field goal attempts. Despite trailing after two quarters, Tulsa's 28 points in the third would be enough to take a 4-point lead. It continued through the entire fourth quarter with Tulsa leading by as much as 8 points. The 66ers now travel to Bakersfield, California for two games against the Jam. The first game is scheduled for Friday evening followed by a second game on the following night. Courtesy of:

Grand Rapids lands Crawford from Fort Wayne - 19 hours ago

The Grand Rapids Drive have obtained the returning player rights to shooting guard Jordan Crawford(6'4''-G-88, college: Xavier) from the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

Warriors work out former lottery pick Swift - 1 day ago

Former NBA lottery pick Robert Swift(7'0''-F/C-85) (Bakersfield High School) is getting a long look from the Santa Cruz Warriors. Swift was among the 18 players to work out for the D-League affiliate of the Western Conference champions this past weekend and is believed to have a shot to make the team. The 7-foot-1 center was selected by the Seattle SuperSonics with the No. 12 pick in the 2004 draft. He spent five years in the NBA with the Sonics/Oklahoma City Thunder franchise, and has se...   [read more]
