B.League: Parks, Nagoya enter playoffs with momentum


Bobby Ray Parks Jr. and Nagoya took care of business in their final assignment in the 2021-22 B.League, routing Osaka, 86-68, Sunday at Ookini Arena Maishima.

It was all but over in the second stanza as the Diamond Dolphins unleashed a 35-10 quarter that turned a 22-18 first quarter lead into a 57-28 advantage.

The lead grew to as high as 39 points multiple times in the contest.

Scott Eatherton led Nagoya with 18 points, five rebounds, and five assists while Yutaro Suda added 15 points on three treys.

Takumi Saito tallied 13 points and seven rebounds as well.

Parks, meanwhile, only had five points in 15 minutes of gametime. Still, he was able to get his feet wet a day ago, dropping 22 points in their 87-76 loss to the same team.

Nagoya ended its elimination round campaign with a 34-15 mark for third place in the East. The Diamond Dolphins will face the Kawasaki Brave Thunders in the best-of-three quarterfinals starting on Saturday at Kawasaki City Todoroki Arena.

The Evessa, meanwhile, ended their run with a 21-36 record.
