Lamb Scores 58 ... and Loses!!!

Jeremy Lamb was on fire in a GHPA playoff game tonight, pouring in 58 points for the Springfield Slamm.

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.

Nice video, well not always is all about scoring, defense is part of the offense as well.
