The Westchester Knicks dropped a tight contest to the Canton Charge, 101-95, on Wednesday evening. It was the squad's second loss in a row -- not optimal for maintaining position in the D-League playoff race.
Cleanthony Early didn't see any game action -- perhaps they want him to get a couple more team practices and scrimmages under his belt before he takes the court for reals. That'll be one hell of a triumphant moment, though.
Jimmer Fredette finished with a game-high 26 points, with 7 assists, 5 rebounds, and 2 steals. Thanasis Antetokounmpo went hog wild in just about every category: 13 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 6 blocks, 1 steal.
Not much in the highlight department, but we do have this monster dunk from 6'1" Ra'shad James:
Young Ra'shad joined the team fairly recently and has offered a touch of scoring off the bench. I don't know much about him except that his first name seems to be the love child of Amar'e Stoudemire and Rasheed Wallace's first names.
Finally, let's congratulate the franchise on turning 2!
Happy two year anniversary to us! We became the official @nbadleague affiliate of the @nyknicks on March 10, 2014. #DubKnicks— Westchester Knicks (@wcknicks) March 10, 2016
That first season was all about the team uncontrollably crapping all over itself. Now, at 23-18, the club is squarely in potty training mode. You're a big kid now!
