Dar Tucker has a pretty impressive D-League resume. In 2010 and 11 he won the slam dunk contest and also in 2011 he won the most improved player of the year award. He then took his talents overseas for a year and is currently playing for the Reno Bighorns.
On Saturday, Tucker connected on 20 of 35 shots including 11 of 22 from the 3-point line to tie Pierre Jackson’s league record of 58 points. The 27 year old Bighorn also grabbed 12 boards and dished out 3 assists.
