James Mays has third straight double-double in Springfield Armor win

Springfield Armor

The Springfield Armor beat the Los Angeles D-Fenders 98-89 Sunday in the Mass Mutual Center in Springfield. Player of the game was James Mays, the 6'9" power forward/center who battled Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries and Andray Blatche in training camp. Mays finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds. He shot a poor 6-for-19 from the floor but made all six of his foul shots. Shawn Taggart, Mays 6'10" backup who played with Derrick Rose at Memphis, had 21 points,including 13-for-16 from the line. The Armor bench outscored the D-Fenders bench 45-24.

Ben Uzoh and training camp invite Carleton Scott shot a combined 7-for-24, but the Armor had enough bench power to get beyond the Lakers' D-League team, which featured two of LA's 2012 draft picks, Robert Sacre and Darius Johnson-Odom. Sacre didn't score and Odom-Johnson had only 11.

Also doing well again for the Armor off the bench: Willie Reed, an athletic 6'9" power forward out of St. Louis. Reed was in the Kings training camp. For the second straight game, Reed had five blocks. The 22-year-old finished with seven points and seven boards in 25 minutes.
