Springfield Armor embarrassed at D-League Showcase

Springfield Armor

It wasn't supposed to be like this. With a veteran club and a number of players who've worn an NBA uniform, the Armor were supposed to be a good team. But again, Wednesday night, they proved they are a bad team, a very bad team. At the D-League Showcase, the league's premier event in Reno, the home team destroyed the Armor lost by 42 points, 121-79.

After a hard fought first half that ended with a Bighorn four-point play and a 10-point deficit, the Armor completely collapsed in the second half, being outscored 60-28.

The Bighorns came out firing to begin the second half, sinking the Armor into a 30-point hole after Reno completed its second four-point play of the game with 2:49 left in the third. Reno continued to shoot hot, finishing up the third by outscoring the Armor 31-9 to take a 92-60 edge into the fourth. Springfield’s nine points in the frame were just two shy of the franchise’s all-time low.

Dennis Horner was the lone bright spot for the Armor. The former New Jersey Net finished with 20 points, his fifth 20+ point effort of the season. Adonis Thomas, the 6'7" 20-year-old, had 11 first half points, but went 0-of-3 in the second half. The newest member of the Armor, Darius Johnson-Odom, had only seven points to go with two assists and two rebounds.  Willie Reed had only two points, four boards and no blocks. He also received a technical foul.

The Armor, now 4-12, play the Iowa Energy at 6:30 p.m. ET in the much-scouted Showcase.
