Report: Glasgow Rocks 84-61 Bristol Flyers

Bristol Flyers suffered another defeat as Glasgow Rocks came out 84-61 winners at the Emirates Arena on Sunday evening.

Neil Watson top scored with 20 points and dished out five assists with Hayden Lescault adding 19 points to help the Rocks improve to 5-1 in the standings.

The Rocks made a solid start and took control in the early stages as they opened up a six-point lead at the end of the first, and three from Watson saw the lead hit double figures for the first time in the second.

But the Flyers hit back and cut the deficit with Hameed Ali's triple at the buzzer and closed to within a single point early in the third.

Glasgow restored their control and broke clear to lead by 13 going into the fourth.

An 8-0 start took the advantage past 20 points and Glasgow went on to secure their fifth league success.

Four players hit double figures for the Flyers but Andreas Kapoulas' side are now 1-4 in the BBL Championship as their tough start continues.
