Cleveland Charge battle to an overtime win against the Windy City Bulls

It was the final home game of the season after a rough road trip losing three in a row so it was pride on the line as the Cleveland Charge (14-18) faced off against the Windy City Bulls (14-18) as 4,524 extremely vocal fans screamed on at the Wolstein Center on Wednesday evening. For once, the officiating was sensible as the referees allowed the teams to play through.

Cleveland took an early lead gradually building it to 20 points but Windy City fought back managing to tie 59 each at the halfway point and again at the end of regulation at 96. The Charge started off the seven shot sudden death with a huge 3 pointer and virtually shut down the Bulls offense at the other end of the court keeping them to only two points in the overtime period. Isaiah Mobley drilled in a free throw to end the game as the crowd went ballistic.

It was the game winning Isaiah Mobley leading the Charge with 23 points, five assists and three blocks in 39 minutes of play. Sharife Cooper earned himself a double-double of 14 points and 10 assists with five rebounds in 25 minutes. Geron Hunt charged off the bench to also earn a double-double of 20 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the field with 12 rebounds in 25 minutes. Zhaire Smith made good with 17 points and Devontae Shuler scored 15 points in relief. This win has the Charge winning over the Bulls 3-1 this season.

For the Windy City it was Adama Sanogo scoring 20 points and grabbing 14 rebounds in 32 minutes. Evan Gilyard hit all seven attempts at the foul line to score 21 points in 29 minutes off the bench. Henri Drell added 15 points and 11 rebounds in 38 minutes.

The Cleveland Charge ends the season on a two game road trip as they travel to Grand Rapids Michigan to battle the Grand Rapids Gold tonight. They then travel to Birmingham, Alabama for a contest on Saturday against the Birmingham Squadron. Both games can be heard on the NEO Sports Radio channel on the iHeartRadio mobile app. with the “Voice of the Charge” Scott Zurilla calling the live action.
