WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Capital City Go-Go (2-2), the NBA G League affiliate of the Washington Wizards, were defeated by the Wisconsin Herd (4-1) 132-106 at the Entertainment and Sports Arena on Sunday afternoon.
Wisconsin lived at the three-point line all game, tying a franchise record with 20 made threes in the contest. The Herd shot 20-45 (.444) from deep in the game, and 48-83 (.578) from the field overall. Wisconsin’s starting five went a combined 18-35 (.514) from beyond the arc in the game, led by Jaylen Adams’ 7-11 performance and Luke Maye’s 5-8 game, who finished with 27 and 22 points, respectively.
Wisconsin’s hot shooting never allowed Capital City a chance back into the game, as the Go-Go faced a double-digit deficit for the final 36 minutes after Jaylen Adams hit a running 28-foot shot as time expired in the first quarter to give the Herd a 10-point lead.
Adam’s 27 points led all scorers, and Cameron Reynolds’ 24-point outing gave the Herd three players with 20 points. Rayjon Tucker (16) rounded out the starter’s scoring, while Shannon Bogues (19) and D.J. Hogg (11) led the Herd’s bench effort.
The Go-Go had three 20-point scorers in the game as well, with Wizards assignees Admiral Schofield (24) and Justin Robinson (20), as well as Jalen Hudson (21) leading Capital City’s offense. Two-way guard Chris Chiozza tallied his first double-double of the season with 11 points and 13 assists on the afternoon.
The Go-Go will begin a two-game road trip with a visit to Delaware to take on the Blue Coats on Tuesday, November 19 at 7:00 p.m. The Herd will continue their four-game trip in Lakeland on Wednesday, November 20 at 7:00 p.m. as they play the Magic.
