Kris Joseph scores 34 in Armor loss; Reed continues hot shooting

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The D-League trade deadline passed Friday without the Armor making a deal, but their big acquisition last month had a big game in Springfield's 111-105 loss to the Erie Bayhawks, the Knicks affiliate, in Erie. Kris Joseph scored 34 points on 11-of-24 shooting and 10-of-10 at the fout line, to lead the Armor.

Willie Reed, coming off the bench, scored 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting, but was in foul trouble the entire 17 minutes he played. Reed is now shooting 62.2 percent from the floor over the last 13 games.

The Armor, who are now a lock to miss the D-League playoffs, got some early scoring from the 6'7" Joseph who like Deron Williams on the parent club, dominated the first quarter. He finished the quarter with 14 points. The BayHawks grew their lead to 14 shortly before the end of the half but the Armor (14-24) cut the deficit to nine at the break. Joseph led all scorers with 17 first half points.

The Bayhawks dominated the second half and with four minutes remaining, they went ahead by 17. Springfield fought back but ran out of time and fell by four. The Armor have 12 games left, the season ending April 6. Expect the Nets to make a decision on the 15th roster spot around then.
