Clippers' Comeback Falls Short vs. Legends, Wright
ONTARIO, CA- The Agua Caliente Clippers (16-10) fall to the Texas Legends (14-14), 107-114, on Thursday night. ACC remains in the third seed in the West, 2.5 games ahead of the Austin Spurs as the playoffs approach.
Brandon Boston Jr., Shevon Thompson, and Nate Darling each recorded 18 points for Agua Caliente. Thompson added 12 rebounds for the double-double.
In his return to Ontario after signing a two-way deal with the Dallas Mavericks on February 25th, Moses Wright dominated his former team with a 36-point, 11-rebound double-double.
Carlik Jones added 30 points of his own for the Legends.
After a close-scoring first half, Texas blew the game open in the third, outscoring the Clippers 32-18 and taking a 21-point lead into the final frame. Agua Caliente responded with a huge quarter of their own, finishing the contest with a 39-point fourth. However, the deficit was too much to overcome, and the Clippers' comeback fell short.
Up next, ACC travels up the coast for a short weekend getaway, taking on the Santa Cruz Warriors on Saturday night. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. PT inside the Kaiser Permanente Arena in Santa Cruz, CA.
