Rookies Darius Johnson-Odom and Robert Sacre both delivered for the second straight game, helping the D-Fenders to a 97-94 victory over the Maine Red Claws of Portland in a D-League game.

The Lakers recently assigned Johnson-Odom and Sacre to the D-League, giving them an opportunity for both players to get some needed floor time.
