Sundiata Gaines, who played his way into a guaranteed deal and then fractured his hip, scored 18 points on 7 for 15 shooting and looked good doing it Tuesday night at the Nike Pro City Tournament. But the big news was that Gaines teammate, Kevin Durant, scored 41, giving him 107 over two nights in the city.
Gaines reportedly moved well playing for The Franchise, which won, 146-143 in OT, over Big Apple Basketball. However, John Lucas III, who played point for Big Apple, hit for 60. Lucas' total topped the previous single game high in the Baruch College league: 48 by MarShon Brooks two weeks ago. Gaines and Brooks could see action against each other next week in the league championships.
