Prior to playing on Sunday, Isaiah Todd vowed to spend much of the NBA G League Ignite’s two-day break in action watching film in an attempt to snap the team’s two-game losing streak.

Todd did just that and responded by turning in his best game of the season.

On Sunday, the Ignite snapped its two-game losing streak behind a career-high 23 points from Todd in a 122-109 victory over the Greensboro Swarm. Todd led the Ignite in scoring for the first time this season, going 9-of-20 from the field while adding three rebounds off the bench.

With Todd leading the way, Ignite also received key contributions from Jonathan Kuminga and veteran Amir Johnson with both players producing 18 points. Ignite prospect Jalen Green scored 17 points, while Daishen Nix had three points, a career-high 13 assists and seven rebounds.

The Ignite turned in season-best totals in assists (34), field goals (49) and field goal shooting (52.7 percent).

The Ignite improved to 5-2 on the season with another matchup looming on Monday versus the Long Island Nets. The team is 1-1 in the second game of a back-to-back this season as the group will look to continue its strong play to begin their stay in the bubble.
