Report: Plymouth Raiders 70-78 Bristol Flyers

A season-high 30 points from Greg Streete helped the Flyers recover from a double-digit lead to beat south-west rivals Plymouth Raiders 78-70 on Sunday afternoon.

The Flyers’ captain stepped up for the visitors with 30 points, nine rebounds and four assists to lead his side to the win in the absences of Cardell McFarland and Tyrone Lee.

Despite seeing their own play-off ambitions end with Saturday's loss against Worcester Wolves, the Flyers are still having a say on the battle for the remaining places.

The Raiders raced out of the blocks with a 14-4 start and looked in command with a 23-11 advantage at the end of the first period. However, Streete and Mathias Seilund led the revival for their side as the Flyers battled back to within three at half-time.

Streete fired his side ahead with a three early in the third, only for Daryl Corletto to respond immediately with a three of his own. Doug McLaughlin-Williams then began to heat up for the Flyers with four triples in a pivotal 21-2 spell that opened up a 17-point advantage.

The Raiders made their run in the fourth with seven unanswered points, closing to within as little as five points, but Seilund netted two dagger threes to claim the season series against Plymouth.
