Breaking down what happened in the National Basketball League of Canada last night:


LONDON  LIGHTNING 98, MONCTON MIRACLES 93

London Top Performers
Eddie Smith - 23 pts, 10 asst, 5 reb
Shamari Spears - 31 pts (12-19), 4 reb




Moncton Top Performers

Darrell Wonge - 22 pts (7-11), 8 asst, 4 reb



The Moncton Miracles have had a tough stretch, playing their first back-to-back-to-back this weekend.  And in their second game of the series on Saturday evening, the Miracles almost pulled out an upset against the league-leading London Lightning.

London played with a short-handed eight-man rotation due to injuries on Saturday but still prevailed with a 98-93 win.  London dominated the Miracles in the paint, outscoring Moncton 52-22 down low as the Lightning pulled out their ninth win of the season.  The Miracles are now 0-9 on the season.

London are now on four days rest before playing three straight games against the Oshawa Power starting on Thursday.  Moncton faces off against Halifax on Sunday afternoon.

“We played a great game,” Coach Michael Ray Richardson emphasized. “Defensively we played smart. We had a short roster because two of our players were hurt (DeAnthony Bowden and Rodney Buford) and the bench came in and played well. It was a great all around game. Each player contributed to the game and were crucial factors in the result.”

“We worked together as a team and things finally started to come together,” said Head Coach Mike Evans. “There are still a lot of things that we need to improve on but it was good to see the guys compete until the final buzzer.”
