Brackins, who was drafted 21st overall in the 2010 NBA Draft out of Iowa State, played in five games with the Armor from Dec. 2nd-Dec. 11th, averaging 17.2 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 37.4 minutes per game. Since his return, Brackins has averaged 21 points per game and scored a season-high 31 points on Jan. 15th in a win over Erie.
Brackins had been recalled by the Sixers on Dec. 12th following his first stop in Springfield and had appeared in one game with the team since his return to Philadelphia, scoring 2 points and grabbing 2 rebounds in 11 minutes in a 110-95 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Dec. 27th. In total, Brackins has appeared in two games with the Sixers this season, averaging 4 points and 1.5 rebounds per game.
“We’re thrilled to have Craig back in Springfield,” Armor coach Dee Brown said. “Craig is a talented player who will continue to benefit from his time in the NBA D-League.”
The Armor, who are 3-2 since Brackins' return, will look to snap a two-game losing streak when they host the league-best Tulsa 66ers tonight at 7:00 p.m. at the MassMutual Center.
