Flash Get Revenge with Win Over Bighorns
RENO, Nev.- Six Utah Flash players scored in double figures, and the Flash led for all but two minutes of Saturday night's game, topping the Bighorns 100-90 in the Reno Events Center.
The Utah victory forces a weekend split, after the Bighorns defeated the Flash on Friday night.
The Bighorns (26-16) ran out to a quick 4-0 lead in the first quarter, but Utah (24-16) answered with a 10-0 run, taking a lead it would not let slip away. After Reno trailed by 16 after three periods of play, the Bighorns chipped away at the deficit in the fourth quarter, but ultimately ran out of time.
Green scored 18 points and added a game-high 14 rebounds for the Horns, while Sloan chipped-in 12 points and 11 assists. Marcus Landry paced five Bighorns in double figures with 19 points. Reno shot 41 percent from the floor and 16.7 percent from beyond the arc on Saturday.
All five Flash starters registered double figures on the night, with Kevin Kruger leading the way with 18 points thanks to a perfect night beyond the arc (3-for-3) and from the stripe (3-for-3). Tony Gaffney added 13 points, 10 boards and four steals.
Reno outrebounded the Flash 44-39 and forced 18 Utah turnovers. Three different Utah players hit at least two three-pointers, and the Flash shot 60 percent (9-for-15) from beyond the arc as a team.
The Flash return to Utah to take on the Tulsa 66ers on Monday. Tickets are available by calling 801-434-4667.
