Following their Saturday night win over the Lakeland Magic, the Westchester Knicks (4-2) continued their latest road trip as they journeyed to the Rust Belt to face the Canton Charge. And although both teams exchanged runs in the second half, the Knicks soon recaptured the lead and never let it go, as they won 106-95.
In what has been a common theme during the Knicks’ early season bouts, they were led by Luke Kornet (17 points), Isaiah Hicks (27 points), and John Jenkins (23 points). The three players, who all have potential to be called up at any point of this season, combined to score 67 points while also securing 27 rebounds. And besides those stellar individual efforts, the Westchester Knicks saw two other players reach double digit points and as a team, they shot 53% from the field and 41% from long distance.
The Charge gave the Knicks, a lot of trouble with their defensive pressure via their 22 steals but couldn’t do much on the other end of the floor. For the entire game, the Charge shot 37% from the field and produced 13 turnovers, but in the second half were held to 16-52 shooting (30%). Up next for the Knicks is their final road game on this trip against the Erie Bayhawks on Friday, before returning home to face them again on Sunday.
