And they were able to do just that.
Against the Delaware Blue Coats at the G League showcase, the Red Claws were able to emerge victoriously in a tightly-contested 128-125 game. The Claws improved to 10-5 with the win.
Here's a look at how the Waters and Edwards fared.
This wasn't the best shooting performance for Water, who only went 4-of-16 from the field, but he still put together a solid stat line. He logged 12 points, 5 rebounds, set up his teammates with 5 assists, and tied for the game-high in steals with 4.
Edwards continues to work on his shot after being sent down by the Celtics, but he didn't make a lot of progress in that area. Edwards went 8-of-21 from the field and was only 3-of-13 from beyond the arc. That said, he was still second on the team in scoring with 19 points and grabbed 7 boards as well.
Also standing out in this game were Jaysean Paige (a team-high 25 points, 4 steals) and John Bohannon (14 points, 13 rebounds).
