Adonis Thomas, the Nets 6'7" project, scored 25 points, his best game in Springfield, and Darius Johnson-Odom, who the Nets added to the Armor roster last week, scored 27, continuing his hot shooting as the Nets affiliate beat the Delaware 87ers, 113-105, in Springfield. It was the Armor's fifth win to go along with 13 losses.

The 20-year-old Thomas was a perfect 7-of-7 from two point range and 3-of-5 from deep. So far this season, Thomas is averaging 12.2 points per game, shooting 49.1 percent overall and 45.2 percent from deep. He's also shooting 83 percent from the line. Johnson-Odom, the 23-year-old combo guard, is now averaging 22.2 in the five games he's played with Springfield, shooting 46.2 percent overall and 35.7 percent from deep.

Four other Armor players scored in double figures: Lance Hurdle, a 6'2" shooting guard, had 14, while Dennis Horner, Willie Reed and Larry Anderson, a 6'5" swingman, each had 13.

Johnson-Odom put the Armor on his back down the final stretch of a tight game, connecting on eight straight points which put the Armor in front after the 11th and last lead change of the evening. Springfield was able to push the lead as high as eight over the final minute courtesy of clutch free throws.
