66ers Topped by Toros

TULSA, Okla., March 30, 2013 - Oklahoma City Thunder assignee DeAndre Liggins scored 18 points with five rebounds, but the Tulsa 66ers fell to the Austin Toros, 99-83, Saturday night at the SpiritBank Event Center.

Fellow Thunder assignee Daniel Orton posted 11 points and four rebounds.

Andy Rautins made a pair of 3-point buckets to set a new NBA D-League record for most 3-point field goals in one season (144). The guard finished with 14 points and a pair of assists.

Ron Anderson and Isaiah Wilkerson finished with 12 and 10 points off the bench, respectively.

With three games remaining in the regular season, 66ers head coach Darko Rajakovic is continuing to keep his team focused on daily improvement.

“We need to take it game-by-game,” said Rajakovic. “We need to be focused on how to improve our game for next week and continue to work on our offensive and defensive details.”

The 66ers drew 2,613 fans for Thunder Affiliate Night, with Rumble the Bison, the Thunder Girls, the Storm Chasers and other members of the Thunder game-night entertainment team on hand.

Saturday also marked 'Turn Tulsa Pink Night', where the 66ers recognized local cancer survivors during a pre-game ceremony. The 66ers raffled off autographed jerseys of Thunder assignment players DeAndre Liggins and Daniel

Orton, collecting $210 for the Turn Tulsa Pink organization. The Thunder Cares Foundation added a donation of $790 to total a $1000 gift.

Tulsa is back in action on Tuesday night when it faces the Sioux Falls Skyforce in Sioux Falls, S.D. The game will air live on YouTube and Tulsa66ers.com.
