Antoine Davis erupted for first career 40-point game in the G League

Rookie Antoine Davis erupted for a career performance in the G League on Thursday to lead the Rip City Remix to a victory on the road over the Wisconsin Herd.

Davis produced 41 points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 33 minutes in the 116-104 win. He went 15-of-28 from the field, including a career-high 9-of-17 from 3-point range, as the Remix improved to 11-8 in the regular season.

The undrafted guard from Detroit became the 18th player in the G League this season to score at least 40 points in a game. He is one of two players to reach that mark while connecting on at least nine 3s.

Davis, who finished as the second all-time scoring leader in the NCAA, played with the Portland Trail Blazers in the NBA Summer League. He was with the team during training camp before beginning the season with the Remix.

The 25-year-old is averaging 14.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists on 37.6% shooting from 3-point range in 34 games with the Remix. He ranks seventh in the G League in 3s (108) and is one of nine players to hit at least nine in a game this season.

Davis established himself as one of the best scorers at the collegiate level at Detroit and has shown that ability in spurts with the Remix. He put on a show on Thursday and had one of the best-scoring performances in the G League this year.
