The Race For The BBL Play-Offs

With just over two weeks remaining in the BBL Championship regular season, here is a quick rundown of the teams that are fighting for the final spot in the Play-Offs.

After the weekend’s results, the fate of the final Play-Off spot will be decided between Bristol Flyers, Manchester Giants and Plymouth Raiders, as Durham Wildcats and Leeds Force were officially eliminated from contention after Leicester Riders posted a big win against the Wildcats on Easter Sunday.

Bristol Flyers (12-22)
Flyers have won the season series over both the Giants and the Raiders, meaning that just one more victory will require the Giants to win three of their last five or Raiders to win all four of their remaining games to secure a place in the post-season. Two out of two wins will make it mathematically impossible for the Plymouth Raiders to make the play-offs.

Manchester Giants (11-20)
The Giants are just one win behind the Flyers with three games in hand, but a 57-64 loss to Leeds Force on Sunday evening prevented them from drawing level on points. If the Flyers win both of their final two fixtures, the Giants will need to win four of their final five games to steal a spot in the Play-Offs.

Plymouth Raiders (10-22)
Raiders can still make the Play-Offs if they win three of their last four games, whilst relying on Flyers to lose the rest of the way. They will also need Manchester to win just one game in their last five as the Giants have already claimed the season series between the two teams. Raiders host the Giants at home on Sunday, April 12th and will look to build some momentum for a late Play-Off run.

Tickets for the Flyers’ final two games of the season remain on general sale as they look to make the Play-Offs in their debut BBL season for the first time since Everton Tigers in 2007-08.
