Report: Durham Wildcats 77-72 Bristol Flyers

From BBL.org.uk

Durham Wildcats aided their pursuit of a BBL Play-off place as they held off a late rally from Bristol Flyers to win 77-72 at home on Sunday.

The result halted a run of three straight defeats for Lee Davie’s men, and ensured they would take the head-to-head tie-breaker with Bristol, should the teams share the same record at the end of the season.

Flyers were without star guard Bree Perine and slip to 7-11, the same record as Wildcats.

Nine first-quarter points from Christopher Jones got the hosts off to a good start and they continued to build on that, extending their led either side of half-time.

Greg Streete was in fine form for the visitors however, finishing with a game-high 27 points, and he was central to his side’s fourth-quarter fight-back.

But Wildcats’ ability to create consistently good looks at the basket ensured they would hang on to record a crucial success, behind Jones’ team-high 23 points.

John Puk also had 18 points for Wildcats and Urli added 16.
