The Canton Charge have come close, but enter the week with a record of 0-3 after a nail-biter of a loss to visiting Westchester.
It happened Saturday, when rookie guard Quinn Cook’s last-gasp shot rimmed out at the final buzzer. The result was an 86-85 thriller of a victory for the Knicks’ D-League affiliate.
Cook won an NCAA championship last season at Duke and attended training camp with the Cavaliers. He did not get drafted.
The Charge lost at Delaware earlier in the week following a season-opening home defeat vs. Maine.
They return to action Wednesday vs. Fort Wayne. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Canton Memorial Civic Center.
Harris heats up
On-again, off-again Cavs assignee Joe Harris leads the Charge with a whopping 26.0 points in his two D-League games.
The second-year guard is shooting 49 percent from the floor, including 44 percent on 3-pointers. He is also grabbing 9.0 rebounds per game, second best on the team.
The Bucks assigned second-year forward Damien Inglis to the Charge on Sunday night.
