LEGENDS 118 LOS ANGELES 109

Justin Jackson was all over the place early with 13 first quarter points. In his first game with the Legends, Myck Kabongo had seven points that started the pull-away run late in the third.

It looked like a tight contest for much of the game, but ultimately, the Texas Legends were able to wear down a depleted opponent.

Despite turning the ball over six times and allowing nine offensive rebounds in the fourth quarter, the Legends managed to pull away from a Los Angeles D-Fenders team that only had eight active players for a 118-109 win at the Dr. Pepper Arena.

Justin Jackson had one of his best games with 25 points, while Damion James scored nine of his 20 in a key third quarter that allowed Texas to rally from falling behind 75-74 midway through that period to lead by as many as 10 in the fourth.

While the D-Fenders were extremely short-handed, Eduardo Najera had an even deeper batch, as not only was Ricky Ledo back as is the norm for games in Frisco, but he had Myck Kabongo and William Buford, who had been acquired earlier in the week from the D-League’s player pool.

That depth could come in handy even more as the Legends are in another back-to-back that continues with Rio Grande Valley coming to Frisco Saturday night.
