"The Troy Daniels Show" Continues For the Rio Grande Valley Vipers

Steve Dykes-US PRESSWIRE

The Santa Cruz Warriors defeated the Rio Grande Valley Vipers at the D-League Showcase in an 2012 NBADL Finals rematch, but it was hard not to enjoy "The Troy Daniels" show anyway.

The Rio Grande Valley Vipers and Santa Cruz Warriors both hit the NBADL hardwood on Thursday afternoon for a 2012 D-League Finals rematch.

And though last season, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers emerged as D-League champions, Santa Cruz got the last laugh at the Showcase. The Warriors defeated RGV in what was a rare loss for the defending champions (they fell to 14-4, whereas Santa Cruz rose to 11-8) by a score of 127-115.

Despite the loss, the Vipers could still be seen letting the bombs fly from long range. The team hoisted up a total of 52 shots from behind the three-point line.

Unsurprisingly enough, they were led by Troy Daniels, who connected on a game-high 8 shots from deep (out of 21), on his way to scoring a game-high 31 points.

But alas, it wasn't enough to lead RGV to a victory. Seth Curry tallied a near triple-double with 27 points, 8 assists, and 7 assists in his D-League return from Memphis, en route to helping Santa Cruz get the W instead.

Still, it's hard not to enjoy "The Troy Daniels Show," at all times anyway, regardless of the outcome. Rockets' General Manager Daryl Morey agrees.

Kudos to our main man Scott Rafferty. Nicely done!
