Lamb Scores 58 ... and Loses!!!
Unfortunately for Lamb, Gary Forbes was even hotter.
Forbes, a UMass product who played for the Denver Nuggets last season, scored 78 -- that's right -- 78 points to lead the Sparks Auto Body Naughty Boys to a 136-132 victory.
This was seriously fun to watch. Throughout much of the first half, Forbes (who drained 13 3-pointers) and Lamb matched each other, mano y mano, one 3-pointer after another. Kinda some Bird-Dominique '88 action.
Lamb hung tough with the NBA player. He never lost his composure (does he ever?), sank a bunch of long-distance treys and took it to the hole well all night. Here's one instance when he beats Forbes off the dribble:
But Forbes, a Panama native who grew up in New York City, was just too much. His 78 points broke the GHPA record previously held by Will Solomon.
