Some huge blocks, coupled with poor shooting from Flyers saw the home side hold a seven point advantage at the end of the first, 20-13.
Flyers' offense performed slightly better in the second quarter but Leicester still limited the away side to just 16 points before the half drew to a close.
Bristol missed 19 shots in the paint in the first hald to see Riders hold a 13 points lead at the half, 42-19.
The second half panned out much as the first had, Flyers struggling to score just 28 points to Riders' 44 as Coach K's men finished with 31% from the field.
The final score 86-57.
