Report: Leicester Riders 90-52 Bristol Flyers

Bristol Flyers suffered their second defeat of the weekend in a 90-52 loss to Leicester Riders away form home.

Riders scored the last ten points of the first quarter to lead 30-13, shooting 8/12 free-throws in the first ten minutes.

Flyers scored just once in six minutes, and have now not beaten Leicester in any of their six BBL meetings, having been restricted to fewer than 70 points in all of those games against the league’s best defence. And that was the tone for the rest of the game, Flyers shooting just 31% and committing 19 turnovers.

Tyler Bernardini opened the second stanza with a three-pointer for Riders to send the lead through twenty, and Walker added another with an ‘and-one’ before the half was out to ensure that Flyers could not get much closer as the pace slowed.

It was a record win for Riders against Bristol, and their second biggest win of this campaign so far. Big man Trevor Gruis led the way with 18 points on 87% shooting, while Shane Walker hit all three of his three-point attempts on his way to 16 points.

Flyers, meanwhile, slip further in their chase for a play-off spot and have not won on the road in more than three months.
