The Nets have recalled Tornike Shengelia and Tyshawn Taylor from their D-League affiliate, the Springfield Armor.
The two played only one game in this recent reassignment in Springfield before getting recalled, which was last night. Shengelia went for 23 points on 7-of-13 shooting. Taylor had a rough night against the Maine Red Claws, only playing 19 minutes while committing seven turnovers and scoring three points. The Armor came out with a rare victory, beating the Red Claws, 93-74.
From the team's release:
In two games (both starts) with the Armor, Shengelia averaged 17.0 points on 55.6% shooting with 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 29.5 minutes per game. He scored a game-high 23 points in the Armor’s 93-74 victory over the Maine Red Claws yesterday. In two games (one start), Taylor averaged 9.0 points, 4.0 assists and 1.50 steals in 25.5 minutes per game.
