It was a valiant effort against the defending champs on the road, but it wasn’t meant to be for the Canton Charge.
Despite Nick Minnerath scoring a season-high 21 points and Jose Gutierrez adding 19 on 7-of-11 shooting, the Charge dropped a 108-101 decision to the Santa Cruz Warriors on Tuesday.
Cavaliers assignee Joe Harris tacked on 15 points for the Charge (3-8). Also, rookie guard Quinn Cook had 11 points and six assists, with Cavs second-round draft pick Sir’Dominic Pointer compiling six points, nine rebounds, four blocks and two steals off the bench.
Former NBA swingman Elliot Williams scored 29 to pace the Warriors (8-4), who built a 16-point lead in the third quarter before Canton came charging back.
The Charge complete their two-game swing on the West Coast at the Bakersfield Jam on Thursday. Tip-off is scheduled for 10 p.m. EST.
