CJ Leslie’s 33 Put 905 Up 1-0 NBADL East Finals

Former NC State star C.J. Leslie poured in 33 points off the bench to lead the Raptors 905 past the Maine Red Claws 109-84 in game 1 of the D-League Eastern Conference Playoff Finals.

 

The 6-9 forward sank 3 threes while shooting a torrid 67 percent (12-of-18) from two-point range.

 

Leslie also had 11 rebounds, 3 steals, and a block.

 

Pascal Siakam (New Mexico State) added 22 points with 9 rebounds, while Antwaine Wiggins (Charleston) chipped in 13 points for the 905 in Sunday’s win.

 

For the Red Claws, Jordan Mickey (LSU-Shreveport) had 21 points with 12 rebounds and Abdel Nader (Egypt) scored 14 in the loss.

 

But the star of the game was Leslie, who is averaging 11.4 points and 6 rebounds this season for the Raptors.

 

A college star at NC State, Leslie led the team in scoring as a junior in 2012-13, averaging 15.1 points and 7.4 rebounds to guide the Wolfpack to a 24-11 record and an NCAA Tournament berth.

 

He was top 10 in the ACC in scoring (seventh), rebounding (eighth) and field goal percentage (.519, seventh) that year.

 

Leslie graduated fifth all-time in career blocks and 23rd all-time in scoring at the school.

 

He was ESPN’s No. 11 ranked player in the 2010 high school class out of Word of God Christian Academy (NC), and a McDonalds All-American.
