After three games, Toko Shengelia and Tyshawn Taylor return to Nets

Springfield Armor

The Springfield Armor lost 120-112, Sunday night in Portland, ME, despite 27 points from Tyshawn Taylor. It was the first time since the Nets sent him and Tornike Shengelia up last week that their affiliate went down. if the assignment proved one thing it was that the two players are overly qualified for D-League competition.

In the three games he played, Taylor averaged 24.7 points and nine assists. Shengelia averaged 32.5 points, 15.5 rebounds and 9.5 assists in two games with the Armor. He missed Sunday's game with symptoms of a concussion. Both returned to New York Sunday night.

"He’s been the best player in the league," Armor coach Bob MacKinnon said of Shengelia. "But we haven’t had him for a lot of games and you still have to play."

Without Shengelia, the Armor battled but in the end couldn't get over the hump. Two ex-Nets, Dennis Horner and Ben Uzoh, combined for 45 points and training camp invite James Mays had another monster game on the boards with 17 points and 19 rebounds. Willie Reed got in early foul trouble and finished with only 12 points and four rebounds in 22 minutes.

A footnote: the Armor lists Shengelia at 6'10," two inches taller than the Nets do. He was listed at 6'9.5" in the Adidas EuroCamp.
