Clippers Drop Close One against Hustle
Southaven, MS. - The Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario (12-11) could not hang on as they lose to the Memphis Hustle (15-10), 119-116, in a Friday night contest that featured 12 ties and 24 lead changes.
The game was back and forth from the start, with the teams even after the first frame. After taking a two point lead into halftime, the Clippers continued their best run of the night by scoring the first seven points of the second half to take a 70-61 lead, their largest of the night. The Hustle quickly chipped away and got the last laugh, thanks to a Tyler Harvey 20-footer to seal the game.
Two-way center Angel Delgado led the way for the Clippers with another double-double, posting 26 points and 13 rebounds. Forward Jamel Artis added 22 points on 7-of-16 shooting from the field.
Ivan Rabb paced the Hustle with 28 points to go along with seven rebounds and three blocked shots. Jarnell Stokes added 20 points off the bench.
The Clippers remain on the road as they travel to Fort Wayne for their first ever matchup against the Mad Ants on Monday. The game is slated to tip off at 4 p.m. (PST) inside the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
