The NBA D-League is all about highs and lows during the season and the Charge in a low right now, especially after blowing a 19 point lead in the second half, mainly at the start of the third quarter. What struck me the most was how Quinn Cook in the third quarter chucked about five three pointers that did not go in.

All the Charge can do is learn and move on from this game. The Charge also had 20 turnovers on the game and only 28 assists. The Charge also had only six points combined off the bench tonight, which did not help at all.
