Jae Crowder is apparently the Oscar Robertson of the D-League.

For the second time in two games with the Texas Legends, Crowder messed around and got a triple-double. He had 22 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists in Saturday’s 137-126 win over the Los Angeles D-Fenders, following up his 23-point, 18-rebound, 10-assist performance in a victory over the same foe Thursday night.

Crowder, who is shuttling back and forth between the D-League and NBA to get minutes after falling out of the Mavs’ rotation, also had five steals and three blocks.

Some not-so-pretty stats in his box-score line included seven turnovers and 7-of-18 shooting.

Rookie point guard Shane Larkin, the Mavs’ first-round pick, had by far his best statistical outing in his three D-League games. Larkin scored 22 points on 7-of-13 shooting, 10 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 steals. (But it’s worth noting that D-Fenders point guard Manny Harris, who has 89 games of NBA experience, had 30 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists and 4 steals.)

Mavs second-round pick Ricky Ledo, a D-League regular during his rookie season, had an off night with only five points on 2-of-8 shooting. Ledo is shooting less than 40 percent for the Legends this season.
