Bristol started the game well and went on an 8-2 run to open the game. London regrouped with a timeout and the score was quickly tied in an enthralling opening 10 minutes.

Reese and the Lions then erupted in the final quarter, stringing three triples in a row on their way to outscoring the Flyers 31-18 to book their ticket to the O2.
