Report: Bristol Flyers 70-79 Sheffield Sharks

Sheffield Sharks ended Bristol Flyers' four game winning streak to move into play-off contention.

From BBL.org.uk

At 11-15, Sharks are now even with Manchester Giants, who share an identical record, with Flyers a step ahead at seventh with a 12-18 mark.

After an early back-and-forth tussle, it was the visitors from Sheffield who made a move first. Flyers had a 12-11 edge with three minutes left in the opening quarter, but Sharks finished the period on a 11-1 run to take a 22-13 lead.

Bryan Holmes had put the visitors up by as many as 16 points in the first half just before the end of the second period, but Bryquis Perine responded by knocking down a triple with the sound of the buzzer.

Flyers had cut the deficit to single digits on multiple occasions, but had their efforts rebuffed. A pair of free-throw by Greg Streete had made it 73-68 with two minutes remaining, but Mike Cook answered with five points in quick succession to pull the gap back to double figures and seal the win for Sharks.

Cook finished the game with 28 points and six assists, Mike Tuck collected 19 points, while Holmes added 12 points and seven rebounds for the winners.

Meanwhile, Doug McLaughin-Williams went 5-of-11 from beyond the arc for a total of 17 points for Flyers, with Alif Bland adding 16.
