Skyforce Stay Undefeated Coming Home On Friday
The three-game road swing for the Sioux Falls Skyforce was a charm as all were wins. Now there is one undefeated team left in the NBA Development League. That team wears teal and black. The Skyfoce topped the Tulsa 66ers 110-101.
In a Kid’s Day early start (11AM CT) for the Tulsa 66ers and Skyforce at SpiritBank Event Center, the home team took charge early and jumped out to an early 13 to 2 lead. By quarter’s end the Skyforce closed the gap to 25-24, then took the lead on the first possession of the second quarter and never trailed again.
Sioux Falls built the lead up to 11 in the second quarter before heading into the break leading 53-44. A couple of times in the third quarter Tulsa cut the lead to four, but the visitors were never headed as the Skyforce are now 4-0 on the season.
Andrew Goudelock paced the ‘Force with 29 points, Demetris Nichols scored 23 with Mark Tyndale adding 17 points off the bench with 9 rebounds and 4 assists. Tulsa got 23 points from Jeremy Lamb to lead the way followed by 21 points apiece for Andy Rautins and Perry Jones III. Lamb and Jones are two of the three players with the 66ers on assignment from the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Skyforce return home for a four game home stand starting Friday night (December 7) with the Erie Bayhawks with the Texas Legends making their first trip to Sioux Falls in franchise history on Saturday. Tulsa is back to action tomorrow with three games in the next four days with all of them against Rio Grande Valley.
