Earl Clark rocks first D-League gamePosted by Inside Hoops
Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports (via blog):
Suns rookie Earl Clark went to Iowa to get some playing time and Iowa got some quality time out of the deal.
In his D-League debut Wednesday night with the Energy, Clark tallied 27 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and a block in 45 minutes of play during Iowa’s 135-132 overtime victory against Dakota. He missed the Suns’ NBA season high scoring game Tuesday but helped Iowa’s second highest scoring game of the season.
Clark made his first six shots of the game, including two he made at the rim while getting fouled. He had 25 of his points through three quarters of play in front of 1,955 fans at Des Moines’ Wells Fargo Arena. Clark scored 12 of his points on layups or dunks but was 5 of 8 from the perimeter, all taken inside the 3-point arc.
