TULSA, Oklahoma – It’s pretty easy to count the 66ers losses this month. You need exactly zero fingers for the job.

Tulsa came into Saturday night’s game against Texas on an 11-game winning streak. That’s the 4th longest streak in NBA D-League history and with a win against the Legends, they’d tie Columbus for the 3rd longest streak.

The 66ers started their game with Texas on fire. After one quarter, they were up by 14 and they had an 11 point lead at the half. The 2nd half was more of the same. And, for the 12th straight time, the 66ers beat their opponent, this time beating Texas 112-96.

Jerome Dyson led Tulsa with 22 points, Latavious Williams had a double-double (10 points, 14 rebounds), and 7 66ers scored in double figures in the win.

Tulsa is now 20-6 and they’ve got a 2 game lead in the Western Conference. The 66ers will now head out on their longest road trip of the year. The team will play games in Springfield, Massachusetts, on Thursday and Friday. Then on Sunday, they’ll head up the road to play in Maine.
