Four Armor Players, MacKinnon Set For D-League Chicago Combine

Dennis Horner has accepted an invitation to the Nets summer league camp, but he'll be among four Armor players at the third-annual D-League Elite Mini Camp on Monday and Tuesday at Chicago’s Moody Bible Institute. Bob MacKinnon, the Armor coach, will also be there to help run the camp. The Nets will be on hand to further scout D-League talent.

MacKinnon, Lee And Armor Success

Billy King will tell you that the success of the Springfield Armor experiment is not just about the players, but about the staff, too. He looks at their development as well. Can the coaching and basketball operations people make the move up the ladder as Dennis Horner and Jerry Smith did this past season? Bob MacKinnon passed that test.

Three Armor Named All-D-League

Jerry Smith, Jeff Foote and Dennis Horner were all named to the D-League All-Star team Wednesday, with Foote and Smith named to the second team and Horner, the third. JamesOn Curry was named honorable mention.

Who Should Have Won The NBA Development League's Most Improved Player Award?

The NBA D-League handed out its Most Improved Player award on Wednesday afternoon to Kenny Hayes of the Maine Red Claws. Considering the 'D' in D-League stands for development, it would seem that MIP is probably the most important award considering it's meant to showcase a player who has done exactly what players are supposed to do when deciding to embark on a season in the NBA's official minor league.

Armor Season Ends With Loss

The Springfield Armor's precedent-setting season ended Monday night when the Canton Charge beat them, 115-106, and won the best two out of three first round playoff. The Charge out-rebounded the Armor, 48-31 and out-shot the Armor, 56.2% to 44%. The Charge now moves on to the second round.

Armor Live To Fight Another Day

The Armor's season comes down to one game, Monday at 7 p.m., after Springfield beat the Canton Charge in overtime, 125-116, evening the first playoff series, 1-1. The two teams play again tomorrow at the MassMutual Center in Springfield. The winner will play whoever comes out of the Austin Toros-Erie Bayhawks series.

Armor Down To Last Chance

The D-League playoffs are unforgiving. After losing Friday night in Canton, OH, the Armor will battle the Charge again Sunday in the best-of-three opening round series. If they lose, their season is over. If they win, they'll live another day. The Charge dominated from early on, winning 108-93

Armor Looking Legit for Playoffs

The Armor flew into Austin Friday to face the Toros, who had the second best record in the D-League and a nine-game winning streak. Led by Jerry Smith, JamesOn Curry and Jeff Foote, the Armor won, 110-99, stamping themselves as a legitimate championship contender in the D-League playoffs which start next week.

Armor Lose But Are Playoff-Bound

The Armor reached yet another milestone this weekend when for the first time they clinched a playoff spot. After a win on Friday, enough tiebreakers fell their way Saturday to push them into the post-season. For a team that had won only 20 of their first 100 games before tying their fortunes to the Nets, it's a big deal.

Nets Bringing Back Dennis Horner

Dennis Horner, the Springfield Armor power forward who won a roster spot in training camp, will rejoin the Nets again this week, the beneficiary of the team's continuing string of injuries. Horner will take the 15th roster spot created when Jerry Smith was sent back to Springfield this week.

Horner's Big Game Leads Armor

Dennis Horner isn't mentioned much when writers and fans talk about who might be called up to the Nets, but the 6'9" PF who played five games with New Jersey early in the season is having a big year at Springfield. On Tuesday, Horner scored 29 points on 10-for-15 shooting and hauled in 15 rebounds in a win over the Maine Red Claws.

Armor Rebounds With Balance

Four Armor players scored 20 or more Tuesday night as the Nets' D-League affiliate broke a losing streak in South Dakota, beating the Sioux Falls Skyforce, 115-109. JamesOn Curry led with 23, while center Jeff Foote posted 22 and 9 rebounds in his second game back from a stint with the Hornets. L.D. Williams added 21 and Lance Hurdle 20.
