Three keys to the game….

1.) Get to the free throw line —- The Canton Charge need to get some points at the free throw line. The Charge are a pretty good team at the line this season. When the Charge faced the Swarm earlier this month, the Charge shot 18/23 (78%) from the free throw line. According to the NBA D-League stats, the Charge attempt 26.2 free throws per game and 72.3% on the season.

2.) Get Moreland, Dunigan and Evans involved and early —- The Charge need to get their main bigs involved: Eric Moreland, Michael Dunigan and Chris Evans. Dunigan had 21 points and 6 rebounds, Evans had 16 points, 9 rebounds and 4 blocks and Moreland had 9 points and 7 rebounds and 4 assists against the Swarm last time. The bigs need to get it going early and attack the paint.

3.) Assists —- Last time these two teams faced each other, the Charge had 28 assists on 44 made field goals. The Charge as a team on the season average only 19.3 assists per game. Quinn Cook had a team-high that game in assists (8). The Charge need to trust the ball movement and continue to trust each other on the offensive end to make good decisions and better looking shots.
