D’Tigers Star Set Record In NBA


Nigeria’s D’Tigers Star Jordan Nwora made all the headlines in the National Basketball Association (NBA) game involving his club Indiana Pacers and Atlanta Hawks.

The Pacers lost the game 130-140 but Nwora equalled a record set by franchise legend Reggie Miller in 1994.

The Nigerian full-back netted 25 points in a single quarter, he recorded 33 points at the end of the match (12/17 shooting).

He, therefore, remained stuck at a unit of his career-high signed when he played in Milwaukee.

Nwora also holds the record for points scored in a single match for Nigeria, scoring 36 points against Mali in 2018, erasing the 31 points of Ike Diogu.
