The Erie BayHawks will try to bounce back after two resounding losses to Los Angeles D-Fenders last weekend in El Segundo, Calif.

After losing by 19 points to the D-Fenders on Saturday, the BayHawks were beaten by 31 points, 138-107, on Monday. The most interesting thing about this is Erie lost these two games with the addition of former NBA veteran point guard Mike James.

The BayHawks will look to regroup before Friday night’s game against Maine at home.

After splitting a pair of games at Maine against the Red Claws (8-16), the Erie BayHawks (10-13) will resume action Friday at home against Sioux Falls (7-17).

Erie won the first game at Maine, 122-113, as point guard Jeremy Lin of the New York Knicks had a triple double of 28 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists. The Knicks sent him and rookie center Jerome Jordan down for the two games. Jordan had 26 points, eight rebounds and three blocks.

Maine won the rematch, 110-88, on Sunday as Lin didn’t play due to injuring his ankle in Friday’s win for the BayHawks. Jordan had just 10 points and seven boards. The Red Claws had waived former NBA player Ricky Davis. He didn’t play in either game.

The Erie BayHawks will face former NBA guard Ricky Davis for the first time this season when they play at Maine against Davis and the Red Claws tomorrow night at 7 and Sunday at noon.

The one thing I remember about Davis’ time in the NBA other than when he threw it off the backboard and got his own rebound to get a triple double was his dunk over Steve Nash.

It was No. 48 on this list of great dunks produced by the Best Damn Sports Show Period.

Nasty.

He’s been in the D-League before.

When Jeremy Lin was a rookie with Golden State last season, the Warriors sent him down for 20 games with the Reno Bighorns. He averaged 18 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists in 31.7 minutes.

Now the 6-3, 200-pound point guard is with the Erie BayHawks after the New York Knicks sent him down earlier today long with 7-footer Jerome Jordan. Lin has five points in five games with the Knicks, who are Erie’s NBA hybrid affiliate, this season.

Lin, who last season became the first Asian-American player since 1947 to play in the NBA, was acquired off waivers by the Knicks after the Houston Rockets released him to make room to sign center Samuel Dalembert.

Golden State released the former Harvard star earlier.

With Lin, the BayHawks have three point guards along with B.J. Jenkins and Mike Gerrity. Loren Stokes, who plays both point and shooting guard, has an injured big toe so Erie may rest him with the addition of Lin.

Lin is expected to practice Wednesday and play for the BayHawks in Friday’s game at Maine. The BayHawks also play at Maine on Sunday.

The Erie BayHawks head into tomorrow’s 7 p.m. game at Maine having split their last two games.

Erie won at Springfield, 123-117 in overtime on Thursday night after losing to the Armor 114-107 the night before. They’ve got some sweet slo-mo highlights of Tirrell Baines going to the rim. Never seen that before.

Here are highlights of Iowa’s 130-117 win at Rio Grande Valley heading into Saturday’s game against the Erie BayHawks at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines. Rio Grande Valley has already beaten Erie twice this season.

Erie also has a game Sunday at Iowa, which lost its first game to the Vipers this season.

Would provide highlights of Erie’s 105-87 home win against the Maine Red Claws, but when trying to upload it from the YouTube’s D-League channel, it says, “The uploader has not made this video available in your country.”

Well, if it’s not available in the United States where the D-League exists, where is it available?

New Zealand?

B.J. Jenkins didn’t waste any time.

He had his first practice with the Erie BayHawks in a shootaround on Thursday morning after they plucked him from the D-League player pool Wednesday.

After the shootaround, the 6-foot point guard out of Murray State had two separate shooting workouts.

He felt ready to play.

“That’s the plan,” Jenkins said Thursday morning. “I’m going to be dressed and ready. About to go home and study the plays right now. Think I got it for the most part. I’m excited. One minute, 40 minutes, I don’t care. I like to play basketball.”

Later that night, he did play and had six points and four assists in Erie’s 105-87 win against the Maine Red Claws at Tullio Arena. Jenkins was 3-of-4 from the field and only committed one turnover in 13 minutes, 46 seconds of play.

He executed the pick-and-roll, got to the rim for a wide open lay up and knocked down the jumper.

“Coach (Jay Larranaga) told me D (Donald Sloan) had been playing the whole game the past two games,” Jenkins said. “I told myself to be ready if I get a chance. If not, just cheer my teammates on.”

Here’s a list of players that were once with the Erie BayHawks but are now with other D-League teams heading into tonight’s season-opening games for the D-League.

Maine Red Claws – Tyc Snow (PG). Snow averaged 1.4 points in seven games for Erie during the 2009-10 season. The 5-7 point guard had 10 points, seven assists and five turnovers in those seven games before being waived.

Reno Bighorns – Blake Ahearn (PG), Taj McCullough (SF). Ahearn averaged 25.7 points in 13 games in the 2009-10 season. Last season, the 6-3 combo guard averaged 16.9 points in 31 games. The 6-7 McCullough averaged 6.5 points in eight games for the BayHawks in 2008-09.

The day after the 2011 D-League Draft,  the BayHawks traded Ahearn and McCullough, a second-round pick of the BayHawks in the 2011 draft,  to Reno for point guard Donald Sloan and forward Joseph Kennerly III, a seventh-round pick of the Bighorns. Erie also drafted McCullough in the second round of the 2008 D-League Draft.

Texas Legends – Booker Woodfox (PG). A 6-1 guard, Woodfox never played a game for Erie. He was with the team for two games before being waived in 2009-10.
