If there was any doubt Terrence Williams is the best player in the D-League, it was dispelled Thursday in his debut with the Springfield Armor. With Billy King in attendance, Williams scored 16 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and handed out 13 assists. He also had a blocked shot and a steal. However, he shot only 5-19.
The Armor outscored the Maine Red Claws, 116-112, in Springfield. Scottie Reynolds, the Villanova All-American, added 26 and Craig Brackins, recently sent down by the 76ers, scored 16. In conversation with the Springfield Republican, King promised Armor fans that the Nets would not be an absentee parent next season but an active participant and a visible presence in Springfield.
