Bone Shines in Overtime Thriller

November 30, 2019 - NBA G League (G League) - Grand Rapids Drive News Release

GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Drive fans were served a post-Thanksgiving treat on Saturday night as the home team took down the visiting Legends in OT on Saturday night. Pistons two-way player Jordan Bone was the runaway star for Grand Rapids, finishing with 34 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists and going 4-7 from the 3-point line. The win moved the Drive to a record of 8-3.

Grand Rapids came out sluggish to start, scoring just 12 points in the first quarter. The Drive made a steady comeback late in the third, thanks in part to a 14-0 run. Grand Rapids found themselves trailing by as many as 13 in the fourth quarter before Bone flipped a switch offensively. With just 0.1 seconds remaining in regulation, Bone converted a fade away 3-pointer to tie the game at 89 all going into the 2-minute overtime. The Drive sealed the deal in overtime with their tenacious offense, by shooting 2-2 from the three and out-rebounding the Legends 5-1, leading to a well-earned 98-93 victory for Grand Rapids to end the first month of the G League season.

Drive big man Donta Hall earned his third-straight double-double with a solid 16 points, 15 rebounds, 3 steals & 3 blocks. Dakarai Allen, getting the start in place of Louis King who did not dress for the Drive, finished just short of a double-double, going for 11 points, 9 rebounds and 3 steals. Pistons rookie Sekou Doumbouya added 8 points and 13 rebounds. Pe'Shon Howard contributed 12 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists off the bench.

The Legends maintained their intensity throughout the game. Mavericks two-way player Josh Reaves was the star for the visiting Legends, earning a double-double with 20 points, 11 rebounds and 2 steals. Nate Mason followed up with 17 points, 6 assists and 3 steals. Other Texas players in double figures include Mavericks two-way player Antonius Cleveland (13 points & 5 rebounds), Brandon Fields (13 points & 4 assists) and Trahson Burrell (11 points & 4 rebounds).

The Drive will travel to Salt Lake City in the morning to get ready for their December 2nd matchup with the Stars. The Legends will travel to Austin to face off with the Spurs on December 4th. Tip-off for both games will be 7 p.m.
