Three Keys to the Game:
More from King James Gospel
1.) Less than 15 turnovers — The Charge are one of the most turnover prone team in the NBA D-League averaging 16.8 turnovers per game. Charge need to not turn it over in key moments of the game.
2.) Get the bigs involved — The Charge need to get their bigs involved and their key bigs are Chris Evans and double-double machine Eric Moreland. Once they get the bigs involved and get aggressive in the paint, they can get the guards involved and have Quinn Cook take over in key moments of the game.
3.) Second chance points — The Charge need to get offensive rebounds and get the 50/50 balls. The Charge and the turning point in their last game was that they outscored Greensboro 17-4 in second chance points. Took the defense out of their element.
Center Grant Jerrett has been bought out of his D-League contract by the Beijing Ducks. Jerrett will play with Stephon Marbury on the Ducks and that is per Josh Weir of The Canton Repository.
