Austin Spurs fall in Santa Cruz late Saturday


Despite knocking down 14 3-pointers the Austin Spurs fell to the Santa Cruz Warriors in NBA Development League action in Santa Cruz, Calif. Saturday night.

The Warriors (18-14) also knocked down 14 shots from three-point range but at 40 percent. Overall they shot 47 percent and were led by Scott Wood’s 27 points. He was 5 for 10 from long range. LaDontae Henton added 19 points while Chris Obekpa recorded a double-double, scoring 10 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.

The Spurs were led by Charles Garcia who scored 20 points on 7 of 11 shooting.

Hollis Thompson scored 16 points and was 3 for 3 from three-point range. Cory Jefferson and Daniel Nwaelele each scored 12 points for the Spurs. Jefferson had a tough night shooting, converting on just three of his 15 shot attempts. Nwaelele was 4 for 6 on 3-pointers.

Austin held a six-point lead after the first quarter but were down by three points at halftime. They cut the lead to two by the beginning of the fourth quarter but were outscored by 11 in the final period.

With the Warriors up 91-88 in the fourth, Santa Cruz went on a 21-7 run to take a 112-95 lead with 2:33 left in the game.
