On Monday night in a road game against the Salt Lake City Stars, Cleveland Cavaliers two-way player London Perrantes tied a Canton Charge franchise record with 16 assists. Quinn Cook, who is now signed to a two-deal with the Warriors, set the record last season.
The Charge, however, lost the game 94-87 to drop to 3-7 on the season. Perrantes finished with five points on 2-7 shooting for Canton, while Marcus Thornton and Kendrick Perkins each had 16 points to lead the team. John Holland, the Cavs’ other two-play player, scored 13 points.
Perrantes had a few flashy passes among his 16 assists - including a near full-court outlet pass to Kendrick Perkins and a few no-look feeds to the corner - but he largely made smart reads and took what the Salt Lake defense gave him. When Salt Lake threw double teams at him, he was patient and read the defense. The result was not only tying a franchise record, but also just one turnover in 40 minutes of play.
