Wolves Drop Contest to Lakers in Final Seconds
El Segundo, Calif. - After leading by as many as 13 points in the second half, the Iowa Wolves (0-5) dropped their fifth straight game to begin the season, losing 119-118 in the waning moments Monday night to the South Bay Lakers (1-3) at the UCLA Health Training Center.
Leading 118-116 with under 20.0 seconds to play, Iowa forced an errant shot from South Bay guard Scott Machado but were unable to secure the rebound. A second-chance shot from distance by two-way guard Alex Caruso put the Lakers up for good as the Wolves were unable to score on the team's next and final possession.
As a team, Iowa put up their best offense numbers of the season, including a season-high 118 points. The Wolves also set a new season-high in field goal percentage (48.9%), three-point percentage (43.3%) and free throw percentage (82.6%).
Two-way guard Jared Terrell paced the Wolves offensively, scoring a team-high 25 points in his second-ever NBA G League game. The Rhode Island University product added seven rebounds, four assists and two steals.
Canyon Barry, son of former NBA great Rick Barry, earned his second double-double of the season, pouring in 23 points on 8-of-13 shooting while securing a team-high 10 rebounds. He also tallied a new season-high four three-pointers while shooting 66.7% from deep.
Darius Johnson-Odom recorded his fifth straight game of at least 20 or more points, finishing with 24 points and four assists.
Hakim Warrick chipped in with a season-high of 16 points to go along with eight rebounds off the bench for Iowa. Warrick didn't miss a single shot during the game, finishing 6-of-6 from the field and a perfect 4-of-4 from the free throw line.
Caruso posted a game-high 26 points, including the go-ahead three-point shot that put South Bay up with 3.3 seconds remaining in the contest. Los Angeles Lakers assignee Svi Mykhailiuk added 21 points in the Lakers' win.
The Wolves conclude their three-game road trip Wednesday afternoon with a matchup against the Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario at 1:00 p.m. CT.
