Pierre Jackson set an NBA D-League single-game scoring record as scored 58 points for the Idaho Stampede in the 136-122 win over the Texas Legends.
The generously listed 5'10" second round pick by the 76ers who was later traded to the Pelicans is lighting up the D-League as it was the seventh time this season with 40 or more points in a D-League game. Jackson leads the D-League in scoring at 30.2 points per game and could be worth a stash in your dynasty league if you are out of the playoff hunt.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
