Top Plays from February

The D-Fenders finished February with a 5-4 record, their first winning month of the season. They sit at 14-19, third in the West Division, and four-and-a-half games out of the final playoff spot.

L.A. acquired center Jerome Jordan from the Reno Bighorns in exchange for guard Orien Greene and forward Ronald Dupree on Feb. 25.

Jordan posted 10 points, 12 rebounds and five blocks in his D-Fenders debut, helping lead L.A. to a 107-94 win over Idaho in their final game of the month.

There were many more highlights, too, so without further ado, here are the top 10 plays in the month of February for the D-Fenders.

10
Former guard Orien Greene launches a shot from near midcourt to beat the halftime buzzer. His 3-pointer tied the score at 51 apiece and propelled L.A. to a 100-92 victory over Idaho on the road.
9
Recording one of his season-high six blocks on the night, D-Fenders center Anthony Stover protects the rim and denies Idaho’s Solomon Alabi. The Stampede, though, snapped L.A.’s four-game winning streak overall against their division rival, winning 114-88.
8
Gary Flowers gets two of his season-high five blocks in one sequence, rejecting Bakersfield’s Renaldo Major and Adam Koch.
7
Lazar Hayward gathers a pass off the bounce and double clutches, while slamming it home along the baseline.
6
After a backdoor cut from Reno’s Walker Russell, Courtney Fortson recovers on defense and swats his layup attempt out of bounds. The Bighorns, though, would outscore L.A. 22-10 in the fourth quarter to nab a 93-86 win.
5
Fortson finds a rolling Zach Andrews and lofts a high pass to the big man, who goes up and hammers it home for this alley-oop dunk.
4
Bakersfield guard Stephen Dennis drives the lane past his defender and tries flipping in a layup, but Andrews is there to swat away his attempt.
3
Elijah Millsap finds a cutting Flowers down the lane, who throws this slam dunk over Reno’s Marcus Landry. The D-Fenders, however, would fall 93-86 in the second game of a road-road, back-to-back against the Bighorns.
2
Late in the first quarter of L.A.’s 115-89 win over Reno on Feb. 13, Andrews catches the ball at the top of the key, drives past his defender and slams it over Landry.
1
Andrews goes up high to collect this near midcourt pass from Greene. L.A. would go on to secure a 115-89 home win, bouncing back from the previous road loss at Reno.
