BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The Birmingham Squadron, NBA G League affiliate of the New Orleans Pelicans, fell, 115-99, to the Oklahoma City Blue in the team's final road contest of the season Wednesday afternoon at Paycom Center in Oklahoma City, Okla.

Both Squadron (14-19) assignment players, Dyson Daniels and E.J. Liddell, led the team in scoring with 22 points apiece, while the NBA G League's sixth-leading scorer on the season, Malcolm Hill, posted 19. Guard Jalen Crutcher shot 50% from three (4-of-8) and recorded 16 points.

Hill also accounted for 10 rebounds for his fourth double-double of the season.

Three players, Adam Flagler (25), Olivier Sarr (22) and Keyontae Johnson (20) scored at least 20 for the Blue (19-13), and Sarr hauled in 26 rebounds, seven shy of an all-time G League record. Hunter Maldonado did not score for Oklahoma City but tallied 11 boards off the bench.
