Portland Trail Blazers forward Luke Babbitt and Armon Johnson were recently assigned to the D-League for a quick stint, including this week's D-League Showcase in Reno. Johnson closed the first quarter of a Monday morning game against the Erie Bayhawks with an exciting three-pointer only to promptly leave Babbitt hanging on the high-five. Update: Johnson had a potential game-tying running lay-up rim out at the buzzer, giving Erie the win, 103-101. Johnson finished with 19 points, five rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes off the bench. Babbitt had 15 points, 7 rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes. Babbitt poured in 35 points in a Saturday win over the Bakersfield Jam. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
