In Springfield, woes continue for Armor

Springfield Armor

They got closer this time than they had in recent games and Dennis Horner, the ex-Net, had a good game , but the Springfield Armor went down to their fifth straight loss Saturday night, losing to the Erie Bayhawks, the Knicks affiliate 110-104. Horner, fresh from Germany, scored 21 off the bench for Springfield, and 6'9" Willie Reed, the team's youngest player, had 16. James Mays had another double-double, his seventh, with 13 and 10. The Armor, the worst foul shooters team in the D-League, were just 18 for 30 from the stripe.

"I think I overestimated how quickly we could get these younger guys up to speed," said Armor coach Bob MacKinnon. "It’s going to take some time, but we’re going to stay after it and get this thing turned around."

Until Horner's return, the Nets affiliate was the only D-League team without a returning players. Also, the Nets haven't assigned their young players to the Armor the way other NBA teams have in recent years. In the last three years, the Nets have assigned four players --Terrence Williams, Jordan Williams, Tyshawn Taylor and Toko Shengelia-- to the Armor for ten games total.
