There wasn’t much, if any, defense being played and the game was so nonchalant that one NBA scout near me turned to one of his brethren to vent for a moment:
“I’ve got a flight to catch at 6:00 PM,” the scout said at around 2:30 PM, about midway through the first half. “And I’ll be on that flight.”
“I don’t blame you,” said the other scout.
Each team shot over 50% from the floor and the Prospects beat the Futures behind their balanced scoring attack, as nine-of-ten players on the roster scored in double-figures and nobody hit the 20-point plateau.
Travis Leslie, who was drafted 47th overall by the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2011 NBA Draft, took home the MVP award as a result of his dunking prowess and increasing confidence as a shooter thanks to an improved shooting touch. Leslie, a member of the Santa Cruz Warriors, scored 19 points (8-13 FG) and had 7 rebounds in 19 minutes of action.
