Jam thumps Reno for 6th straight win

By THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIAN

Forward Renaldo Major scored 20 points, Damion James had 11 rebounds and guard Diante Garrett had 10 assists Friday to lead the Bakersfield Jam to a 102-86 victory over the Reno Bighorns at the Dignity Health Event Center.

It was the sixth straight victory for the Jam, who improved to 17-7 and lead second-place Santa Cruz by 11/2 games in the NBA D-League's West Division.

Guard Walker Russell scored 19 points, and Dar Tucker added 18 for Bakersfield.

Six-foot-9, 260-pound forward Samardo Samuels, out of Louisville, scored 20 points to lead Reno (8-12), which was hampered by poor free- throw shooting (18-of-36).

The teams play again at 7 p.m. today at the Event Center.
