Report: Manchester Giants 64-62 Bristol Flyers

Bristol Flyers' play-off hopes took a huge blow following a narrow two point defeat to Manchester Giants on Sunday.

Callum Jones' game-winning jumpshot handed the Giants their seventh win of the season as they edged out Bristol in a low-scoring contest.

Stefan Gill top scored with 23 points on his return from suspension, while Dzaflo Larkai added 14 points before fouling out late on and Jones finished with 13.

Larkai scored the opening four points of the game in a strong start for the Giants as they scored 24 first-quarter points to lead by seven. Points proved harder to come by from that point forward with Bristol holding the home side to just 12 in the second as they reduced their arrears.

Roy Owen cut the gap to a single point with a three towards the start of the second half, and the Flyers moved into the lead when Cardell McFarland later followed suit.

Bristol led by one heading into the fourth, and after both teams struggled to add to their totals, the game was tied at 58 with five minutes remaining. Twice, the visitors levelled, but were unable to do so a third time as Jones' basket proved decisive.

The Flyers are now four wins adrift of the Play-Off places as they drop to a 7-16 record, whilst Manchester improve to 7-21 in the league.
