Toko Shengelia shines with 29 points but Armor lose again

Springfield Armor

Toko Shengelia scored 29 points Saturday, giving him 50 for the weekend, but a three-pointer and a steal by Kyle Gibson within the last five seconds sealed the Canton Charge's win over the Armor, their second heart-breaking loss in two nights. The Armor lost to the Maine Red Claws Friday in a double-overtime thriller.

Shengelia shot 9-of-19 overall, 3-of-7 from three. Shengelia is now averaging 27.0 points per game, tops in the D-League. He had a subpar rebounding night, snaring only two, but is still averaging 10.6.. He also had three steals. Shengelia hit one of two free throws with 8.4 seconds left, setting up Gibson's game winner.

“He’s a heck of a player,” Armor Caach Bog MacKinnon observed. “He’s got a 10-12 year NBA career ahead of him.”

Kris Joseph had an off night shooting, but Willie Reed played well, as did Ramone Moore, the Atlantic 10 player of the year last season. Reed finished with 19 points, seven boards and three blocks in 26 minutes. Moore, who caught fire late, shot 5-of-7 from deep to finish with 15. Joseph also had 15 but shot 6-of-20.

It's uncertain when Shengelia will return to the Nets.
