Before the Splash Brothers caught fire on Saturday night, a minor-league veteran put on a shooting display never seen before in a Three-Point Contest.
Los Angeles D-Fenders guard Andre Ingram, in his eighth NBA D-League season, took the crown in the minor league’s version of the shootout by making 39 of 50 shots over two rounds — an all-time record across the NBA and NBADL.
Ingram posted 26 points in the first round and 27 in the second to surge past Westchester Knicks guard Jimmer Fredette in the finals. His red-hot run included a streak of 13 buckets in a row over 30 seconds to start that final round.
The 30-year-old was a star at American University before entering the NBA D-League in 2007 with the since-relocated Utah Flash. Earlier this month, he became the Development League’s all-time leader in three-pointers made with 546 on 45% shooting.
