2020 Vision: Day 9 Recap
- By The Commissioner, Day 9, 2020
Tritons 106 @ Huskies 107Boxscore
Toronto pulled off a thriller behind 31 points from Darius Barry (12/22 FG, 4/6 3P). Vionte Houston impressed with 20 points, 11 boards and 7 assists, while Bryant King had 17 points and 14 rebounds. For Oakland, Marcus Ivory had 26 points and 9 rebounds, but 6 turnovers. Cameron Nix continues to struggle, scoring only 11 points on 4/14 shooting. The Tritons continue to play a reasonably short lineup, only playing 8 players to the Huskies 10.
Fireballs 115 @ Devils 114Boxscore
Despite 40 points and 13 rebounds from Atlanta’s Taquan Slattery, Los Angeles took home the away win thanks to a last second shot from — who else — Chris LaCruz. LaCruz struggled mightily with foul trouble for the whole game and finished with only 12 points and 3 assists, but managed to hit shots when they counted. With both teams combining for a massive 44 turnovers, the high paced game was a constant fast break. Drayton Banks had his first good game for the Fireballs with 27 points and 10 boards, and looked more comfortable with his new teammates. Orpheus Swayda had 21 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists and 4 steals. Sophomore Liu Jinghau had 15 points and Curtis Westley had 14 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals.
Rockets 116 @ Warriors 103Boxscore
Another easy win for Austin, who have started 6-0. Led by Kaiama Nyambi (23 points, 18 rebounds) and Reggie Goodwin (23 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists, 5 steals) and Rubin Wingfield (22 points, 12 assists), the result was really never in doubt. #1 pick Alonzo Weaver got his first start, hitting 14 points and 10 boards in 25 minutes. Reggie Coleman top scored for the Warriors with 22 points.
Mustangs 104 @ Knights 79
Detroit smashed Kansas City thanks to huge games from Demetric Vaughn (27 points, 10 rebounds) and Reggie Dawkins (29 points, 6 rebounds). Dawkins is having the best start of his career so far, averaging 26.0ppg and 14.0rpg. Rookie Hassan Bundu started at SF and had only 6 points, but managed 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals and 4 blocks in an impressive defensive game. For the Knights, Hawes had 23 points and 13 rebounds but the rest of the starters couldn’t handle the more accurate shooting of the Mustangs.
