Last week, the Armor's Willie Reed was the D-League performer of the week. This week, it looks like Tyshawn Taylor.
In the two games since he's been back on the farm in Springfield, Taylor has averaged 27.5 points on 20-of-35 shooting (57.1 percent) overall, 5-of-8 from deep (62.5 percent) from three and 10-of-12 (87.5 percent) from the stripe. He's handed out 14 assists, seven each game, and stolen the ball six times. He also hit the dagger, a three pointer, in the Armor's win over the Erie Bayhawks, the Knicks affiliate on Tuesday. He did have nine turnovers in the two games, which was one reason why he fell to the Nets in the second round. This time, it could also being a product of playing with new and different lineups.
As video of his highlights from Tuesday, a 30-points, 7-assist, 4-steal perforance shows, he outclassed his Erie counterparts all night. Included in the highlights, his 360-degree, two-hand breakaway dunk. He also had the play of the day, an acrobatic and-one, on Thursday night. As Crabdribbles, a site that follows the D-League, notes, "There isn’t anyone in the D-League who can stop Taylor." The Armor play again Saturday.
