India’s Amjyot Singh made his G League debut on Sunday, turning out for the Oklahoma City Blue. The Indian hoopster scored three points in his team’s 101-123 loss to the Reno Bighorns at the Cox Convention Center.
After missing out on opening night game against Rio Grande Valley Vipers, the Chandigarh-born player came on from the bench for the last four minutes in the fourth quarter. With just over two minutes left in the game, Amjyot hit a three-pointer but that wasn’t enough as his team lost to Sacramento Kings’ affiliate side.
The Blue trailed 19-27 after the first quarter, but was able to cut the lead to three to 41-38 midway through the second. That would not last long as Reno went on a 24-9 run to finish off the first half and take a 65-47 lead into the break.
The second half saw Daniel Hamilton score 13 of his 18 points as the Blue attempted multiple comeback charges. In the end, the Bighorns were up to the challenge as they won the final period 31-25. PJ Dozier produced eight points, four assists and grabbed one rebound.
Markel Brown and Myke Henry each scored 20 points. The former came off the bench to shoot 5-6 from three and Henry adding three rebounds, two assists and two steals. Jack Cooley led the charge for the Bighorns with a double-double, bagging a game-high 36 points.
