January 22, 2012

The starting backcourt of Osiris Eldridge and Jeremy Wise led the Bakersfield Jam to a 110-107 road victory over the Los Angeles D-Fenders Saturday night.

After falling behind by 19 points in the first half, the D-Fenders roared back to set up a thrilling finish. Down three, former Celtic first round pick Gerald Green connected from downtown to tie the game at 106 apiece with 40 seconds remaining.

However, Jeremy Wise and Juan Pattillo went on to convert clutch free throws to give Bakersfield the lead.  Pattillo would finish the game with an 18-point, 10-rebound double-double.

Green would then miss a potential game-tying three at the buzzer. He would finish with 25 points off the bench.

Eldridge scored a team-high 24 points and grabbed eight boards. Wise recorded 23 points and dished out eight assists.

Former New York Knick and Los Angeles Clipper Mardy Collins led the D-Fenders in scoring with 26 points. Elijah Millsap had 20, while Orien Greene added 13 points before fouling out in the fourth quarter.

Bakersfield improved to 12-10 with the win.  The loss dropped the D-Fenders to 17-8 on the season.

The two teams will meet again for the third consecutive game on Thursday, January 26 at 7 p.m. PT in Bakersfield.
