Sneaky Creeky pinches win

FORMER Adelaide 36ers captain and Boomers starter Mitch Creek today produced an impressive NBA G-League performance for Long Island Nets, with a double-double and the match-winning play over Capital City Go Go.

Creek played 36 minutes in the nail-biting 128-127 win and scored 17 points at 50 percent, with 11 rebounds.

He also had five assists, four steals and a block, but most importantly, trailing 125-127, Creek scored the tying basket with 8.3 seconds left, then went to the stripe for the bonus.

When he knocked that down, Long Island had the W, despite still having to weather the Go Go’s hectic final play.

Capital City’s Jordan McRae – yes, the same player who was with the NBL’s Melbourne United a few years back – missed a shot for the win, the Nets riding home on Theo Pinson’s 29-point game.

Creek’s driving right-hand layup from across the key (pictured) brought an “and-one” and his free throw took Long Island’s record to 2-0.

“I mean Theo carried the load for the first three quarters, played some great D in the last quarter. You know we played with pace, played with a kick ahead,” Creek said.

“(I was) lucky enough to get a call and make a nice finish and big fella here (Pinson) got a stop when we needed it.”

McRae finished with a game-high 30 points, on 10-of-26 shooting for Capital City.

Long Island opened its season with a 114-105 win over Westchester Knicks, Creek playing 22 minutes for eight points, three rebounds and three assists.

STILL A WINNER: Mitch Creek, heading to the line to finish the job ... and the Go Gos.
