D-Fenders News: Manny Harris Scores Franchise Record 49 Points In Win
Ever since he stepped on the floor for the D-Fenders, Manny Harris has been a scoring machine. Last night, Harris took it to another level as he broke the D-Fenders franchise record, scoring 49 points in the D-Fenders 133-124 over the Idaho Stampede.
Harris’ 49 points also matched the D-League season-high as Los Angeles won their sixth consecutive game. Harris, who recently was named D-League Performer of the Week, is trying to get another award on his mantle with his scoring outbursts. Harris added six rebounds, three assists, and three steals in the victory.
Harris, the D-League’s fifth rated prospect, was one of six D-Fenders who scored in double figures. James Southerland added 16 points and nine rebounds, while Terrence Williams had a great all-around game with 11 points, five rebounds, seven assists, and five steals.
With this win streak the D-Fenders have now climbed into the playoff picture as they currently sit eighth in the D-League. Here are highlights from Harris’ 49-point effort via NBA D-League:
