The Utah Flash moved to 29-18 with their 108-93 win over the Anaheim Arsenal. The Flash, who were playing in their fifth game in 8 days, shot 65% from the field in the 4th quarter on their way to the win.
Celtics rookie JR Giddens played small forward rather than his customary shooting guard position and finished with 18 points on 8-15 shooting to go with 10 rebounds (5 offensive), 1 assist, 1 block,and 1 steal in 38 minutes of play. Former Celtic draft pick Kedrick Brown led the Arsenal with 30 points and 10 rebounds.
The Flash play next on Friday when they host the NBDL top seeded Colorado 14ers. This will be interesting because before the scheduled game, these 2 teams will play the final 25.2 from the December 26th game between these 2 teams. The Arsenal had originally won the game 104-102 but the Flash won the first ever D-League protest over a scoring error in the game and it was suspended with 25.2 seconds to play and the score even at 102. That is where they will pick up play on Friday. They will play out the final 25.2 seconds of the suspended game at 6:30 with the regular scheduled game to follow.
