21 Jul Nashville Pro-am Night 5 recap
Week 3 of the 2019 Nashville Pro-Am league kicked off on this past Sunday and a couple of teams are starting to separate themselves from the pack. Team Cash won their fourth game in a row after defeating AC Dentistry 84-74. 71 of the 84 points came from the three-headed monster of KC Anyna, Nickus Doaks, and Kelly King. Anyna led all scorers with 25 points and 17 rebounds. King (23p, 12r) and Doaks (23p, 10r) would also record a double-double as well. “We’ve got a good chemistry.” King said. “I’ve worked out with everyone on our team this whole summer so far… every game (in the Pro-Am) we’ve had about just five or six guys and have gotten to play pretty much for the whole game.” In Team Cash fashion, they fell behind early but a big second half made the difference. “We’ve had a lot of games like this where we’re down early then we (Team Cash) comeback and we knew even when we were down double digits we would be fine.” King said AC Dentistry held a lead as big as 16 but faltered in the second half.
Asurion would get their fourth win of the league by taking care of Slim and Husky’s 99-83. Jaylen Barford led all scorers with 40 points (23 in the first half). “I just wanted to show everybody that I still run this (Pro-Am).” Barford said jokingly after the game. “I just picked my spots and scored whenever I felt it was necessary.” Dontae Jones would have a big night for Asurion as well, scoring 23 points and 20 rebounds. Jones’ 20 rebounds made the difference in the rebound aspect as Asurion outrebounded Slim and Husky’s 62-42.
Team Pinnacle defeated Car Source 71-63 behind a well-balanced scoring attack. Ron Slay and DJ Harvey led the way with 12 and 11 points respectively and every player for Team Pinnacle scored. However, for Car Source, a lot of their key players struggled. Rob Marberry and Dorian Heins both scored 15 points, but sharpshooters Austin Luke and Jaqwan Raymond struggled going 3-for-16 shooting behind the arc. Play resumes on Thursday as Team Cash and Asurion begin to separate themselves from everyone else.
PLAYER OF THE NIGHT – 7/14
