The Westchester Knicks staged a late comeback to defeat the Texas Legends, 116-112.
The big story on the night was Xavier Rathan-Mayes, who notched the first triple-double in franchise history with 12 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds. But it was a group effort, as three players (Rathan-Mayes, Luke Kornet, Isaiah Hicks) recorded double-doubles, while Nigel Hayes put up 9 points and 10 rebounds.

It was really only a matter of time before Rathan-Mayes got his first G-League triple-double. The dude knows how to fill up a stat sheet.
Luke Kornet (two-way contract): 16 points on 6-10 shooting (2-3 from three), 10 rebounds
Frontcourt players don’t get more clutch than our boy Luke. With 38.8 seconds remaining and the W-Knicks up by one, Kornet blocked a shot attempt from Kyle Collinsworth before laying one in on the next possession on a sweet out-of-bounds play.
