Late 3-pointer lifts Austin Spurs to win over Salt Lake City


Bryn Forbes hit a 3-pointer with 15.7 seconds left and Patricio Garino made two big blocks to lift the Austin Spurs to a 104-102 win over the Salt Lake City Stars Tuesday night in Utah.

Forbes scored 24 points while Cory Jefferson added 27 to lead the Spurs’ offensive attack. Forbes knocked down five 3-pointers as the Spurs shot 43 percent from beyond the arc.

Jefferson added six rebounds, two steals and two blocks in the effort.

Garino and Charles Garcia each scored 12 points as the Spurs (9-13) had four players score in double digits. Garcia added eight rebounds and three assists to lead the Spurs in each of those categories. Garino had two steals and made both of his blocks on the Stars’ final possession to seal the win.

Tyrone Wallace led all scorers with 29 points while Michale Kyser recorded a double-double for the Stars. Kyser finished with 17 points and 11 rebounds.

The teams went back-and-forth all night as there were seven ties and 20 lead changes in the contest.

The Spurs shot 49 percent while the Stars (5-16) knocked down 45 percent of their shots. Austin held a big edge in free-throw shooting, making 28-of-36 from the line. The Stars made ten less free throws and shot just 62 percent from the line.

Austin will attempt to win back-to-back games for the first time since Nov. 19 when they travel to Reno to take on the Bighorns Wednesday night.
