Without Kris Joseph, Armor lose to Erie Bayhawks

Chris Chambers

Kris Joseph, Montreal native, tweeted everyone in Springfield "bonne soir, mes amis" just before the Armor tipped off Monday afternoon. His farewell is the closest thing to a confirmation that he'll next show up in a Nets practice jersey, perhaps even before Wednesday's game with the Cavaliers.

Calling himself "blessed," Joseph praised Armor coach Bob MacKinnon, calling him "definitely one of the best coaches/teachers that i have come across," before thanking him. Joseph, a 6'7" swingman, played for the Celtics early in the season,

MacKinnon could use the good vibes. His team lost a tough one Monday afternoon, 83-81, without Joseph, Tornike Shengelia and Tyshawn Taylor. After an Erie turnover, Springfield had the ball, trailing 82-81 and just 10 seconds to go. Dominique Jones, the former Mavs drove to the rim, but his runner was off the mark. Erie buried a free throw and the Armor lost their 29th game with only three to go.

Willie Reed had 17 points and 12 rebounds, shooting 8-of-10. It was the 22-year-old's 11th double-double. Jones had 15 and Ben Uzoh 16 in the loss to the Knicks affiliate.
