After a disappointing 114-106 loss against the Sioux Falls Skyforce on Friday, the Los Angeles D-Fenders redeemed themselves the following night. Although the Skyforce cut the deficit to two points in the fourth quarter, the D-Fenders made big plays down the stretch and came out with a 128-121 victory.
It was a complete team performance led by C.J. Williams and Jamario Moon. Williams got the D-Fenders off to a great start and finished the game with 34 points (14-18 shooting) while Moon chipped in with 24 points (6-7 from threes). While Los Angeles has struggled closing games this season, Travis Hyman’s block led to a break away lay-up that extended their lead to seven with three minutes to play.
