Milton Doyle had another big game for Long Island Monday night, as the young Nets won their 10th game, beating the Texas Legends, the Mavericks affiliate, 124-112, at Nassau Coliseum.

Doyle led the way for Long Island with a team-high 28 points, four rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes. Half of Doyle’s points came in the final seven minutes of the game to lead the home team to victory. He shot .714 (5-of-7) from the field and 1.000 (3-of-3) from long range in the fourth quarter alone when Long Island had 38-30 advantage.

For the game, the 6’4” Doyle shot .556 (10-of-18) from the field and .600 (6-of-10) from long range.

Isaiah Whitehead, assigned to Long Island early Monday, tallied nine points, three rebounds and seven assists in 26 minutes in the win. Forward Thomas Wimbush added 14 points in 16 minutes off the bench and became the third Long Island player this season and in team history to shot 100 percent (4-of-4) from 3-point range (min. 4 3FGA). Wimbush, a 6’7” wingman, was the Nets first round pick in the G-League’s draft.

The Nets center, 6’11” Prince Ibeh (pronounced “E-Bay”), had eight points on 4-of-5 shooting including this spectacular alley-oop from Shannon Scott...

Ibeh, who had a block vs. Texas, is averaging 8 blocks per 40 minutes.

Long Island’s own, Jameel Warney, scored 27 points and grabbed 13 rebounds for Texas. A native of Plainfield, N.J., Warney played his college ball at Stony Brook and was the star of Team USA in the FIBA Americas tournament last month.

Long Island is now 10-5, a half game behind the Westchester Knicks in the G-League’s Atlantic Division. After a slow start, Doyle is averaging 20.8 points and shooting better than 37 percent from three.
