FRISCO, Texas, Dec. 15, 2017 – The Oklahoma City Blue (8-9) fell to the Texas Legends (8-9), 118-116, on the first night of a back-to-back.
The Blue was up 112-108 with under three minutes left in the game until an 8-0 run put the Legends on top. A three-pointer by Rashawn Thomas with 27.8 seconds to go closed the gap to two points at 118-116 and a miss by Texas gave Oklahoma City a chance to take the lead, but Markel Brown’s three-point attempt with less than a second remaining fell short.
The Blue bench outscored the Legends reserves 74-11 anchored by Justin Leon who produced a career-high 26 points, six rebounds and two steals on 9-for-10 shooting, going 6-of-6 from beyond the arc.
Michael Cobbins notched his first career double-double with 16 points and a career-best 10 rebounds on 7-for-11 shooting from the field. Thomas tallied 18 points, five rebounds and two assists while two-way player Daniel Hamilton logged eight points, nine rebounds, nine assists.
Jameel Warney led the charge for Texas and set new career highs with a double-double of 33 points and 15 rebounds.
Oklahoma City will return home to host the Agua Caliente Clippers tomorrow night at 7 p.m. at the Cox Convention Center.
