The Erie BayHawks were part of the top two plays of the D-League Top 5 Plays of the Week for Dec. 17-24.

No. 2. Mychel Thompson’s reverse lay up at Springfield. The BayHawks won 127-119.

No. 1. Boston Celtics rookie 7-footer Fab Melo blocked a D-League single-game record 14 shots for the Maine Red Claws against BayHawks. Erie won the game, 85-78.

Me personally, the best play of them all is No. 3: JaJuan Johnson, who used to play for the Boston Celtics, served up a facial on Melo.

Nasty.

D.J. Kennedy scored 22 points to lead the Erie BayHawks to a fifth consecutive win, 105-91, at Erie Insurance Arena on Friday night. The BayHawks (7-4) have the longest active winning streak in the D-League.

Demonte Harper had a season-high 18 points off the bench for the BayHawks, who shot 10-of-20 from 3-point range. Cory Joseph led the Toros (7-6) with 21 points. Last season, Austin eliminated Erie in the first round of the D-League playoffs.

The BayHawks play Fort Wayne tonight at 7 at Erie Insurance Arena. The Indiana Pacers have sent down Miles Plumee and Orlando Johnson to the Mad Ants (4-10), who have added former Clevleand Cavaliers forward Luke Harangody. Fort Wayne also has the top pick from the 2012 D-League draft in JaJuan Johnson.

The Erie BayHawks haven’t played a game in a week. That’s been a good thing for D.J. Kennedy.

In last Friday night’s 109-100 win at Fort Wayne, Kennedy took a hard fall on his back on a drive to the basket with 7 minutes, 26 seconds left in the third quarter. Going up for a layup, Kennedy got fouled by JaJuan Johnson, who was trying to block the shot.

Go to the 1:32.04 mark of the replay to see the foul.

Kennedy said earlier this week he expects to play tonight at 7:30 at Canton, but said he could have played had Erie played earlier this week. Erie (1-0) will play the Charge (0-3) again in a back-to-back Saturday in its home opener.

“I would have just prepared myself to play,” Kennedy said. “I wouldn’t have known until I really got out there if I could play, but if I can’t be effective, I’m not going to risk it.”
