2020 Vision: Day 11 Recap

  • By The Commissioner, Day 11, 2020

Vultures 95 @ Renegades 88


Down 2 starters, the next few weeks will be a struggle for New York. This game was in reach but the solid play of Colin Stafford (23 points, 8 rebounds) and rookie Sasha Vidmar (16 points, 5 rebounds) was too much despite 33 from Jerome Bradley. Veteran DeShawn Harper tried to shoot his way out of a slump but missed 16 field goals, going 4/18 for 10 points.

Scorpions 96 @ Knights 99


Kansas City pulled off a surprising win against 2019 champions Las Vegas behind 23 points and 16 rebounds from Kelvin Hawes and 22 points 8 rebounds from Dominique Respert. Orien Young had 20 points and 12 boards, while Omar Grant — who has started the year on fire — had 12 points and 21 boards. Dontay Sowder had 17 points, 5 rebounds, 3 steals and 3 blocks for the Scorpions, who only shot 39% to the Knights’ 50%.

Hurricanes 104 @ Cyclones 89


Ryan Pierce continued his red hot start for the Hurricanes with 33 points and 16 boards, and Tyson Kuberka had 26 points, 5 assists and 6 steals as New Orleans continued their winning run (7-1) against Miami. Even losing their starting center in Leon Bowen, the ‘Canes are starting to look legit. Isaiah McCarty had 21 points and Antoine Hall had 17 points and 10 boards, but the Cyclones had 22 turnovers and wasted easy possessions.

Stars 94 @ Jaguars 103


Mexico City continued their surprising start (3-3) against Nashville (4-1), thanks to 22 points, 11 boards and 7 assists from #5 pick Kahlil Hooker off the bench, 20 points and 4 assists from Ashley Winters and 17 points 19 boards from Bryant Rodgers. The Nashville bigs had no answer for Hooker and Rodgers, with Simon Hartford (10 points, 16 boards, 6 blocks) and Kaiser Andersen (4 points, 6 assists on 1/7 shooting) unable to slow down the much faster Hooker around the basket. Tezale Craig had 29 points, 14 boards for the Stars.

Skyhawks 67 @ Devils 96


Atlanta put the hammer down and Orpheus Swayda shot himself back into form with 27 points as the Devils ran out 29 point winners at home against St Louis. The Skyhawks could not get anything going, with Donnell Wallace, Jevon Novak and Mark Hunter (all 12 points) the top scorers. Taquan Slattery finally looks like fulfilling his massive promise, scoring 29 points and grabbing 8 boards. The Devils move to 2-5 and the Skyhawks 1-4.
