Assigned from the Houston Rockets to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, Isaiah Hartenstein was the MVP of the best-of-three series against the Long Island Nets. The Vipers dropped the first match, but secured the “W” in the next two and were crowned G League Champions for the third time.

The 20-year-old German forward averaged 28 points in the finals including 30 in decisive Game 3. He added 17 boards, three assists, two rejections and one steal in the third game improving his averages to 15.7, 2.3, 1.7 and 0.7, respectively.

Fellow European Dzanan Musa was on the wrong side of the finals despite averaging 20 points, 5 rebounds, 1.7 dimes, 0.3 steals and 0.3 blocks. The 19-year-old Bosnian swingman notched 24 points, six boards and one assist in Game 3.
