66ers Win Behind Reggie Jackson's 37 Points

Posted: Updated:

The Tulsa 66ers overcame a 14-point deficit to top the Canton Charge, 99-91, on Saturday at the SpiritBank Event Center behind Reggie Jackson's 37 points.

Currently on assignment from the Oklahoma City Thunder, Jackson also grabbed nine rebounds and dished out five assists in his third appearance as a 66er. His 37 points are the most by any NBA Development League player this season.

"Reggie was great offensively tonight but also had a big nine rebounds," said Tulsa Head Coach Darko Rajakovic. "He was all over the court and leading our team. He gave confidence to all of us and had a great night tonight."

OKC assignee DeAndre Liggins scored nine points with five rebounds and Perry Jones collected eight points and four boards with two assists and two blocked shots. Dominique Sutton added 18 points and five rebounds along with Andy Rautins' 13 points, four boards and two assists.

The Charge started off strong, leading Tulsa 29-15 with a minute left in the first quarter. The 66ers chipped away at the 14-point deficit the remainder of the first half before closing the second quarter with a 6-0 run. Tulsa trailed 46-42 at halftime before scoring another six straight after the break to pull ahead – the game's first and only lead change.

Tulsa used a 21-3 run to build a 59-49 lead, outscoring the Charge 36-18 in the third quarter. Tulsa went 14-for-19 (.737) from the field and outrebounded Canton 12-4 in the frame.

The Charge fought back in the final quarter, getting within two points of Tulsa on a 3-pointer from Antoine Aguido with a minute remaining to make it 93-91. Aguido led Canton with 20 points on the night.

The 66ers responded with a pair of free throws from Sutton after securing an offensive rebound with 35 seconds remaining. Tulsa held off Canton in the final 30 seconds with two blocked shots from Jones.

Tulsa and Canton face off again next week with a pair of games in Ohio on Dec. 28 and 29.
