2020 Vision: Day 10 Recap

  • By The Commissioner, Day 10, 2020

Cyclones 112 @ Hurricanes 119


New Orleans continued their strong start to the season (6-1), getting big contributions from Tyson Kuberka (27 points, 12 assists, 6 steals), Ryan Pierce (29 points, 6 boards) and Jermaine Wade (27 points, 5/9 3P). The Hurricanes are fired up and playing a good balance between faster pace and inside play, despite Leon Bowen being out. The Cyclones got 34 points from Isaiah McCarty (13/18 FG, 7/9 3P) and 26 points from Jamaine Curry, but had 22 turnovers (8 from Curry alone). Miami appear to be missing Mark Robertson’s distribution as stand-in PG Rickey Douglas is struggling.

Scorpions 115 @ Fireballs 101


The Scorpions big frontline managed to cause Drayton Banks to sit for almost the entire first half as Las Vegas cruised to a 14 point win. Dontay Sowder had 26 point and 9 assists, Hilton Phillips 16 points and 10 assists, Omar Grant 10 points and 20 rebounds and Orien Young 19 points and 13 boards as the Fireballs had no answer for the huge lineup. Chris LaCruz had 20 points, 7 boards and 11 assists, Jordan Carstensen had 21 points, and Liu Jinghau had 17 points off the bench in just 14 minutes, but the Fireballs are still working out their pieces and rotations and continue to play inconsistent ball.

Thunder 91 @ Jailbirds 87


An ugly but big road win for Seattle as the slumping Jailbirds lose again. Keydren Carter had 39 points but Jason Cheaney (9 points, 6 assists) and Dameon Clarke (13 points, 14 boards) are both shooting poorly and underperforming to start the season. Andre Phifer had 28 points and 6 boards, and Devan Carroll had 19 points, but both teams struggled with shooting and turnovers.

Skyhawks 102 @ Warriors 98


Donnell Wallace had 25 points, Mark Hunter had 20 points and 9 boards and Marcus right pulled down 20 boards as St Louis managed to snatch a victory in Philadelphia. Shaun Burrell also had 18 points off the bench. For the Warriors, Alonzo Weaver played 38 minutes and had a very impressive 20 point, 9 rebound outing, while Tyler Davis (20 points, 3 assists) and Reggie Coleman (15 points) contributed solid outings, but it was not enough to secure the win.

Stars 129 @ Mustangs 103


Nashville cruised to their fourth straight victory, smashing Detroit by 26, thanks to 34 points from Tezale Craig and 31 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists and 3 steals from Antoine Peeler. Simon Hartford continues to struggle (8 points, 11 boards) but Kaiser Andersen didn’t miss a field goal for 11 points. Joe Layton had 17 points off the bench. For the Mustangs, Demetric Vaughn had 33 points and 7 steals, and Reggie Dawkins 17 points, but the -13 rebound differential hurt when it came to making the most of the Mustangs’ missed shots. The Stars also shot 57% to the Mustangs 45%.
