Signed by the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday, Jones had 27 points and 13 rebounds in the first win of the season for the Charge (1-3). D.J. Kennedy led Erie (1-1) with 21 points.

The Erie BayHawks haven’t played a game in a week. That’s been a good thing for D.J. Kennedy.

In last Friday night’s 109-100 win at Fort Wayne, Kennedy took a hard fall on his back on a drive to the basket with 7 minutes, 26 seconds left in the third quarter. Going up for a layup, Kennedy got fouled by JaJuan Johnson, who was trying to block the shot.

Go to the 1:32.04 mark of the replay to see the foul.

Kennedy said earlier this week he expects to play tonight at 7:30 at Canton, but said he could have played had Erie played earlier this week. Erie (1-0) will play the Charge (0-3) again in a back-to-back Saturday in its home opener.

“I would have just prepared myself to play,” Kennedy said. “I wouldn’t have known until I really got out there if I could play, but if I can’t be effective, I’m not going to risk it.”
