The Erie BayHawks had their five-game winning streak snapped in an 106-84 loss to Fort Wayne at Erie Insurance Arena on Saturday night.
The Mad Ants (5-10) won their first road game in seven tries and avenged a season-opening loss to the BayHawks (7-5). Ron Howard and Tony Mitchell each had 26 points to lead Fort Wayne while Henry Sims scored a team-high 22 points for the BayHawks.
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 Cleveland Cavaliers put Luke Harangody’s mind, body and spirit to the test – and Jay Larranaga loved it.
The Erie BayHawks coach applauded Harangody for playing four games in as many days with three being for the Canton Charge in the 2012 D-League playoffs.
“I think it’s awesome,” he said. “I think it’s a credit to Luke. The kind of player he is and the kind of professional he is that he was able to do that. That he played at a high level in all four games and helped his team get a win in three of the games including the game he played for the Cavs. The kid deserves so much credit.”
The Cavs recalled the former Notre Dame star up today before Cleveland plays the Philadelphia 76ers tonight at Quicken Loans Arena. In his game with Cleveland, Haranagody had 16 points and 10 rebounds in a 99-89 home win against Washington.
The Cavs had recalled Harangody the second time April 14th and sent him back down the Charge the next day for Game 2 of their best-of-3 series at second-seeded Springfield.
