The Mad Ants pulled within a point of the lead in the final seconds Saturday night, but they couldn’t get over the hump in their second loss in as many nights to the Reno Bighorns.
Reno iced its 109-106 victory with a pair of free throws by Danny Green with 1.5 seconds to play in Reno, Nevada.
Corey Allmond hit a three-pointer with 2.1 seconds to play to cut the Bighorns lead to 107-106, but the Ants were forced to foul to put Green on the line.
Walker Russell Jr., the Ants’ lone D-League All-Star, scored 20, and Allmond finished with 18 for Fort Wayne (14-19), which fell 102-91 to Reno on Friday.
Salim Stoudamire scored 25 for the Bighorns (22-12), and Green added 24.
