Report: Bristol Flyers 63-85 London Lions

Bristol Flyers did not do themselves any favours in the BBL Play-Off race on Saturday night, falling short 85-63 to the visiting London Lions at the SGS WISE Arena.

The guests from the capital were up and running right from the get-go, breaking away early for a 21-13 lead at the end of the opening quarter. The margin had reached double digits on several occasions in the second quarter, but Flyers sliced the deficit to 40-33 before the halftime interval.

Lions re-established a double-figure advantage after the break with the duo of Lovell Cook and Andrew Sullivan doing the majority of the damage and went on to put the game out of reach with a 17-1 run to start the fourth quarter.

Cook was the leading scorer for Lions with 23 points and Sullivan chipped in with 19, with the pair going a combined 20-of-22 from the stripe. Joseph Ikhinmwin was the only other scorer in double figures for the London side, collecting 16 points.

For Flyers, Bryquis Perine and Greg Streete collected 14 points apiece, while Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye added 11 off the bench.
