Willie Reed goes for 21 and 20 in Armor win.

USA TODAY Sports

On Friday night, with Tornike Shengelia and Tyshawn Taylor on the court, the Springfield Armor lost to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, the home team plagued by turnovers, 23 in all, and 14 of them by the Nets rusty duo. Sunday afternoon, the Armor blew out the Mad Ants, 107-80, with Willie Reed coming up with yet another monster game.

Reed finished with 21 points, 20 rebounds and a block. Over the past three games, the 6'10" Reed is averaging 20 points, 17.3 rebounds, 3.3 blocks and shooting 69.2 percent. Going back to the All-Star Game --11 games-- he's averaging 18.4 points, 9.7 rebounds and shooting 69 percent in a little more than 20 minutes.

“Anytime a guy gets 20 rebounds, he’s doing something right,” Armor coach Bob MacKinnon said. “He’s been coming in and getting to work with (assistant) Coach (Chris) Carrawell. He’s been really focused.”

The 22-year-old Reed, who regularly sports a Nets cap, has initiated a Twitter campaign to get Brooklyn to call him up to Barclays Center. The Nets have an open roster spot and are expected to fill it next month.

Edwin Ubiles, who had a short stretch with the Wizards last season, finished with 15 points. He's one of several young players with NBA experience GM Milton Lee has added to the Armor roster in the last month. In addition to Ubiles, Lee has acquired Kris Joseph, formerly of the Celtics; and just this weekend, Dominique Jones, cut by the Mavericks. The Armor, and thus the Nets, now control the players' D-League rights through next season. They also have to be considered candidates for the Nets summer league and training camp rosters.
