Report: Plymouth Raiders 91-72 Bristol Flyers

Bristol Flyers suffered their first defeat to Plymouth Raiders in the BBL following a 91-72 loss away from home on Sunday afternoon.

Daryl Corletto's side trailed early on, but pulled away in the middle periods to lead by as many as 20 points as they continued their impressive home form in 2016, having lost one league game in eight at the Pavilions.

Adrien Sturt fired in an early three to set the tone for a high-scoring opening quarter, but it was the Flyers who edged in front with Tyrone Lee scoring nine points in the period.

Plymouth began to turn the tide in the second and compiled a 17-5 spell to open up an 11-point lead. Dixon had 19 points in the first half, and the Raiders came out firing in the second with Duane Bailey netting two triples in a 16-4 burst to establish a commanding 20-point cushion.

Bristol immediately closed the gap with a 7-0 response, but could not get closer than 13 points as Plymouth powered their way to a fifth consecutive league victory at home as they climb above London Lions in the standings.

The Flyers were led by Lee's 18 points as their play-off hopes took a hit in another twist in the race for a top eight finish.
