Toko Shengelia and Willie Reed play well, but Tyshawn Taylor disappoints

Springfield Armor

Jermaine Taylor, a 6'5" shooting guard, scored a D-League season high 49 points Saturday night as his Maine Red Claws held off a late charge by the Springfield Armor to win, 115-108. Taylor shot 20-of-30 from the floor.

Toko Shengelia finished with 23 points on 8-of-18, but only 1-of-5 from deep, to lead the Armor. Dominique Jones, the ex-Maverick, had 21, hitting half of his 16 shots and Willie Reed, coming back from sore elbow, came up with 20 points, five boards and two blocks. Tyshawn Taylor, however, didn't play well. After scoring 55 points the last two games, scored only 15 points Saturday on 7-of-20 shooting, missing all seven three-pointers. As a result, Jermaine Taylor moved ahead of Tyshawn Taylor in the D-League scoring race.

Shengelia and Taylor have now played three games for the Armor and are expected to play another three before returning. Saturday was Brooklyn Nets night, with the BrooklyKnight and the Brooklynettes on the court to deliver Nets gear to the more than 5,000 Amor fans on hand at the MassMutual Center.

"The crowd was terrific, I thought our game-ops people were terrific and I thought our basketball team was soft," Armor coach Bob MacKinnon said.
