Clippers Drop Close One against Hustle

January 11, 2019 - NBA G League (G League) - Agua Caliente Clippers News Release

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.

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.
