Report: Sheffield Sharks 90-71 Bristol Flyers

Flyers' play-off surge was halted by Sheffield Sharks, as the South Yorkshire side claimed a 90-71 victory at home.

Malcolm Riley poured in 35 points including nine 3-pointers in an impressive display to down the Flyers who had won both of their games last weekend.

Bristol were without Aaron Cosby, but made a bright start to lead 12-17 after the first quarter despite 10 points from Riley.

However, the Sharks bounced back in the second as they turned things around to lead 32-25 on a three from Riley and would still be leading by seven at the half.

Sheffield pushed on to lead by as many as 12 in the third, but the visitors kept battling and a strong start to the fourth saw the gap cut to three at 65-62.

Back-to-back triples from Riley capped an 11-0 burst from the Sharks as they pulled away for the win with Bristol missing the chance to move above their South-West rivals, Plymouth Raiders, who also lost.
