B.League: Parks, Nagoya swept by Kawasaki to end playoff run

The first year stint of Bobby Ray Parks in Nagoya ended on Sunday.

The last Filipino import standing and the Diamond Dolphins could not solve the Kawasaki Brave Thunder, falling 70-85 in Game Two of the 2022 B.League quarterfinals to bow out of contention at the Todoroki Arena.

Nagoya lost to Kawasaki yesterday, 71-97, as well.

This time around though the Diamond Dolphins put up a better fight.

At the half Nagoya was only down by five, 41-36.

The duo of Matt Janning and Nick Fazekas though took charge in the third canto, combining for 14 points while helping limit Nagoya to just 18 points to erect a 10-point lead heading into the final frame.

From there, the rest of the Brave Thunders followed suit, going on a 17-4 run to blow the game wide open and punch their ticket to the next round.

Kawasaki will next face top seed Utsunomiya in the next round.

Fazekas led Kawasaki with 18 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists while Janning scored 11 points and grabbed seven rebounds from off the bench duties.

Pablo Aguilar also tallied a double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds.

Tenketsu Harimoto paced Nagoya with 22 points while Manato Kikuchi added 14 markers.

Ray Parks was limited to just seven points, four rebounds, and three assists.

Nagoya did not have American imports Scott Eatherton, Coty Clarke, and Ovi Soko for the game due to injuries.
