It's gut-check time. The D-League playoff race is getting down to the nitty-gritty -- or at least I assume it is. How much longer does their regular season last again?
Anyway, this is when the D-League separates the men from the boys. And let me tell you something about Westchester Knicks point guard Travis Trice: He may look like he's 14 years old, but he is all man on the court. Young Travis put the W-Knicks on his back Saturday night, dropping a career-high 29 points to go along with 5 assists and 4 steals in a tense 89-84 win over the Erie BayHawks.
Word on the street is that Jimmer Fredette could return to the W-Knicks as soon as Sunday. If that is truly the case, Trice made the most of his two-week window as Westchester's true lead guard, averaging 23.0 points over his last five games.
The boys of Westchester will have no time to rest on their laurels; they face the Atlantic Division-leading Maine Red Claws Sunday afternoon. A win would put Westchester back into a tie for first place. Let's get some!
