The Bakersfield Jam look to bounce back from a blowout loss to the L.A. Defenders when the two teams meet in a rematch Friday night. The Defenders won for the first time this season defeating the Jam 131-96 led by Ryan Kelly who finished with 30 points and seven rebounds.
This Jam team will have a bit of a different look as the Atlanta Hawks have assigned rookie point guard Dennis Schröder and second-year guard John Jenkins to the club. Schröder is expected to make his debut on Friday and Jenkins is a possibility after the move was announced on Friday morning. The Jam also acquired Damion James this week to help add some defense from the perimeter.
