Daily Duke in the NBA Recap: Two lonely Blue Devils in action

Last night didn’t treat us to much action with only two NBA games and four D-League games going on. As a result, we only saw two former Duke Blue Devils take the court.

It wasn’t a completely boring night, though; we got a reverse dunk and a 25-point performance out of it, so that is something.


NBA Action

Mason Plumlee and the Brooklyn Nets were in action, picking up a 102-93 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers at home. Plumlee was largely ineffective, however, collecting just four points and no rebounds before fouling out after sixteen minutes of playing time. In Plumlee’s last 43 minutes of playing time, the 6-foot-11 forward has pulled in a grand total of one rebound. One.

In good news, he did have a pretty sweet dunk.


D-League Action

Seth Curry turned in another big performance as the Santa Cruz Warriors overcame a double-digit fourth quarter deficit on their way to a 112-106 victory on the road against the Bakersfield Jam. Curry finished with 25 points–shooting 8-20 from the field, 3-7 from beyond the arc, and 6-7 from the free throw line–4 rebounds, 8 assists, and a steal in 40 minutes.

For Curry, it was just another night for his perpetually rising stock, and I fully expect him to find his way onto an NBA roster soon.
