Adreian Payne made his NBA D-League debut Friday night in Fort Wayne's 94-85 loss to the Erie Bayhawks. They will be looking for revenge on Saturday when the two teams meet again.
Payne finished with seven points and seven rebounds in 29 minutes off the bench but struggled with his shot going 2-10 from the field. He was predictably rusty given the long layoff since his last action in real game conditions. Payne is expected to return to the Hawks after Saturday's game.
Seth Curry led the Bayhawks with 24 points in Friday's win while Peyton Siva added 15 points and 11 assists. Andre Emmett led Fort Wayne with 20 points while Myck Kobango tossed in 19. Glen Rice Jr is also on assignment for the Mad Ants and finished with 11 points in 27 minutes.
Game Date/Time: Saturday, November 22, 7 p.m. ET
Location: Erie Insurance Arena, Erie, Pennsylvania
