Austin Spurs win on back-to-back nights


A day after defeating Sioux Falls, the Austin Spurs topped Northern Arizona 110-103 in an NBA D-League contest at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park on Friday night.

Ryan Arcidiacono added 17 points and six rebounds. Demetri McCamey and Daniel Nwaelele rounded out the double digit scorers, with 11 and 10 points.

Austin shot 48 percent on the night, including 57 percent from 3-point range as they connected on 12 of 21 shots. McCamey and Forbes each had three 3-pointers.

The Spurs led by 12 points entering the final period and were able to keep the Suns at arm’s length until the final buzzer.

The Suns were able to get to within five points with 2:22 left in regulation, but the Spurs connected on four straight free throws to get breathing room.

The Suns were led by Xaiver Silas and his 26 points. Elijah Milsap had a double-double though he fouled out of the game. He had 15 points and 10 rebounds in the loss.

Shaquille Harrison had 21 for Northern Arizona. Northern Arizona shot 41 percent on the night and made 12 3-pointers.

Austin led by five after the first quarter and held that lead until halftime.
