Record Setting Performance Earns Larry Drew II NBADL Weekly Honor
After dishing out 35 over two games and leading the Sioux Falls Skyforce to two victories, Larry Drew II earns his first NBADL Performer of the Week Award.
In game one of the week, the former UCLA guard set the NBA D-League record for assists in a game with 23. Not only that, Drew went 7-10 from the floor on the way to 16 points in a 135-129 victory over the Rio Grande Valley Vipers on December 25. A lion's share of those dimes can be witnessed in the clip above.
Two nights later on December 27, Drew dished another 12 assists, shot 6-9 from the floor, scored 14 points grabbed 2 steals and 2 rebounds. In the process, the Skyforce snapped the Austin Spurs' 10 game win streak. Of which you can see the complete package of defense and offense in the clip down under.
That's an average of 17.5 assists with 15.0 points on .684 shooting (13-for-19), while connecting on all three of his three-point attempts.
This season, Drew is averaging 11.3 points, 11.1 assists (second in the league) and 38.9 minutes (fourth in the league) through 15 games.
Next up for Drew II and the Skyforce is a New Year Day road contest with the Grand Rapids Drive.
