Both Malik Beasley and Juancho Hernangomez had the ability to show off a little in the D-League, as they were two of seven players on the Sioux Falls Skyforce to hit double-digits in scoring in a 148-122 Skyforce victory over the Texas Legends on Friday night. As that score would indicate, defense is not a strong suit of the league, but it’s still nice to see both Denver Nuggets out there running the floor and putting up points.

Hernangomez notched a double-double in his first D-League game with 17 points and 11 rebounds, while Beasley added 16 points of his own and topped it off with some very nice transition play. Beasley’s athleticism really shines in the open court, and he and Juancho ran a fast-break together that is shown at the end of both sets of highlights. Juancho’s evening is up first, followed by Beasley in the clip right below. Enjoy!
