Manny Harris, Los Angeles D-Fenders break D-League scoring record
The Los Angeles D-Fenders broke the NBA Development League single-game scoring record with 175 points in a win over the Reno Bighorns on Saturday.
Here's the box score, and here's some video evidence:
The scoring came quick, with the D-Fenders, the Los Angeles Lakers' D-League affiliate, holding a 56-42 lead after the first quarter. That was the highest-scoring quarter for both teams, and the D-Fenders also set D-League records for points in a single quarter (56) and half (94).
The D-Fenders shot 69-of-112 (62 percent) for the game, including 11-of-21 (52 percent) from three-point range and 26-of-35 (74 percent) from the free-throw line. Former Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers guard Manny Harris led all scorers with 39 points and posted a triple-double with 13 assists and 10 rebounds. Harris played with the Lakers last season on a pair of 10-day contracts.
Nine players scored at least 20 points, including the Lakers' three affiliate players: forward Roscoe Smith (22 points, 16 rebounds), guard Jabari Brown (28 points) and guard Keith Appling (22 points).
