Bristol Flyers crushed Leeds Force to record their highest ever BBL points tally, 88-111.
Nine Flyers players made the scoresheet with four in double-digits; Brandon Boggs (29), Adam Weary (23), Rohndell Goodwin (18) and Mike Vigor (12).
The home side began the game lively, Tavarion Nix plundering eight points in the first two minutes as Flyers looked sluggish following the long journey up from Bristol.
Boggs kept Flyers in it with 11 points in the first quarter - the scores level at the end of a bright first period 23-23.
Whilst the second quarter last week in Sheffield was a horror show for Flyers, it was Force who suffered a catastrophic second period this week.
Leeds were limited to just 12 points in the second quarter thanks to some good defence from Bristol. Flyers on the other hand had no such troubles, running rampant with 37 points.
Coach Kapoulas' men held a huge 25-point lead after the first half - 35-60.
Flyers continued to score at will with a number of highlight reel plays in the third, although Force did show some fight they found themselves down 52-88 going into the final period.
The away side took their foot off the gas somewhat in the fourth quarter, allowing the hosts 36 points.
This reduced the Flyers' lead from 36 points to 23 as the game ended 88-111, a Bristol Flyers BBL points tally record.
