Bill Walker scored a team high 26 points as the Flash beat the Arsenal in their opening game of the D-League Showcase being held in Orem. Five Flash players scored in double figures including Walker and fellow Celtics' assignee J.R. Giddens who scored 16 points and Kyrylo Fesenko, a Jazz assignee, who scored 12.
Walker filled up the box score with 26 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, and 3 steals while Giddens finished with 16 points, 1 assist, and 1 steal. It was also reported that Walker hit his head on the backboard as he was going up to block a shot. Think the Celtics could use that kind of energy off the bench right about now?
The Flash controlled the tempo for most of the game in the 109-100 win in front of their home town. Danny Ainge and GM's and scouts from many NBA teams are there checking out the action and scouting players.
Utah (7-8) will return to action in the Showcase on Thursday against the Los Angeles D-Fenders.
