Skyforce Prepping For D-League Playoffs

April 3, 2014, 10:45 PM by Elliot Nathan

Skyforce Prepping For D-League Playoffs
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Sioux Falls Skyforce have won four consecutive games, and have secured at least a wildcard spot in the D-League playoffs.

It's back to work for the Sioux Falls Skyforce.  After starting out the season a tear, winning 12 of their first 15 games, they hit a mid-season road block.  Head coach Pat Delany understands the grind of a long NBA D-League season, but feels his club has turned the corner and is pleased with the results.

"I think we definitely had some peeks and valleys throughout the regular season. We started off really strong, and I think a lot of had to do with the home record.  Then we got into that grind off the regular season and being on the road and what not, and we had a turning point halfway through the season were guys realized this can really work for us, making it result in wins, and also the player development side where players are getting better," Skyforce head coach Pat Delany said.

The force are 17-6 at home this season, and are led on the offensive end by Guard Tre Kelly, who averages 19 points and over five assists per game.  The players have developed, including DeAndre Liggins, who was called up to the NBA early this year.  Now, back with the Force, he says the team's goal is simple.

*It's not about getting to a specific round to call it a successful season.  We want to win it all.  That's the only thing we are hanging out hat on.  We are trying to take it one possession at a time and one game at a time," Skyforce forward DeAndre Liggins said.

With two regular season games to play, Sioux Falls stands 29-19, part of a three-way tie with Iowa and Rio Grande Valley for the Central Division lead.  Coach Delany agrees that the goal is clear-cut, and is confident that the final home series will help the Force reach their peak going into the playoffs.

"Hopefully we are peaking at the right time.  We still have two regular season games left that we want to win this weekend and put ourselves in the best position possible going into the playoffs.  And as you said, hopefully we will have a chance to take home hardware in a few weeks," Delany said.

The Skyforce will host Texas on Friday night, and Tulsa on Saturday night, with both games scheduled for 7:00 at the Sanford Pentagon.  The D-League playoffs will begin no earlier than next Wednesday.
