Fort Wayne, Santa Cruz set for D-League Finals rematch
The Fort Wayne Mad Ants go for their second straight championship, while the Santa Cruz Warriors will try again for their first when the NBA Development League Finals begin Thursday night.
It's a rematch of last year, when the Mad Ants swept the Warriors 2-0 as part of their league-record, 10-game postseason winning streak. They went 6-0 last year and have won all four games in this postseason, sweeping Maine and Canton.
Fort Wayne hosts Game 1 and the Warriors would host Game 2 and 3, if necessary. All the games will be televised on ESPN U.
The Warriors have reached the finals in all three seasons of their existence, falling to Rio Grande Valley in 2013.
