Willie Reed has monster game (20, 15 and 5) as Armor win in overtime

USA TODAY Sports

Willie Reed, the Armor's 6'10" center, got a rare start at center Thursday night and came through with a monster game as Springfield won its fourth straight home at home, beating the Texas Legends, 92-89, in overtime. The Legends are the Mavericks' affiliate. Reed, out of St. Louis University, had 20 points (on 10-of-12 shooting) to go with 15 rebounds and five blocks.

Kris Joseph, the former Celtic, shot 4-of-15 for 18 points. Ben Uzoh, the ex-Net, also played well, finishing with 15 points and seven assists. However, two of the Armor's bigs, Dennis Horner and Carleton Scott, shot a combined 1-of-12 and two points. Guard Justin Johnson came off the bench to lead the Armor with 22 points, three rebounds and an assist. Johnson twice gave the Armor the lead with three-pointers, then salted away the game when Texas missed on the final seconds, Reed rebounded the miss and passed to Uzoh who fould Johnson for a layup at the buzzer.

Justin Dentmon, the D-League's MVP last year, had a game-high 35 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists. Melvin Ely added 17 points and 8 rebounds, and Dwayne Jones tallied the team’s only double-double with 11 points and 14 rebounds.
