B.League: Ray Parks checked as Nagoya escapes Hokkaido for 20th win


Unlike their 90-60 win yesterday, Ray Parks and Nagoya had to dig deep, bucking a Hokkaido come back to take an 89-77 win in the 2021-22 B.League season, Sunday at Dolphin’s Arena.

Up by as much as 19 points in the contest, the Diamond Dolphins saw their lead drop to four, 69-65, after a De’Mon Brooks jumper with 5:04 left in the game.

Coty Clarke was able to restore order, triggering a 6-0 blast afterward.

The final nail in Levanga’s coffin came with 2:13 left.

Ryoma Hashimoto was called for an unsportsmanlike foul against Takumi Saito. Saito converted on the two free throws. Then during the possession that followed, Clarke knocked down a triple that shut the door on any Hokkaido comeback.

Nagoya went up to 20-8 with the win while dropping Hokkaido to 11-17.

Clarke had a monster performance for the Diamond Dolphins, tallying 28 points, nine rebounds, four assists, three steals, and a block.

Saito added 17 points and nine assists while Taito Nakahigashi got 14 points.

Ray Parks saw himself limited to just four points on 2-of-5 shooting with five rebounds.

Shawn Long led Hokkaido with 27 points and 10 rebounds while Brooks added 16 markers.

Nagoya will meet eastern powerhouse Alvark Tokyo next on Wednesday at Arena Tachikawa Tachihi.
