Bolts run win streak to four - Jan 27, 2017

Kyle Johnson
The London Lightning roster additions paid dividends immediately. Thursday's 105-97 win over the Kitchener-Waterloo Titans also proved yet again that this year's version may be the deepest of any previous Lightning teams. The win in Kitchener was their fourth in succession in the National Basketball League of Canada. They were without Frederick Edmonds and Garrett Williamson, starting guard Junior Cadougan injured a shoulder early in the game and leading scorer Julian Boyd (6'7''-F-90, college: LIU Brooklyn) spent a large part of the game on the bench because of foul trouble. Not only did newbies Doug Herring Jr. and Marvin Phillips step up despite their limited exposure to the Lightning, so did all the bench players. With this team it's getting harder to figure out whom the bench players are. A look down the statistics sheet showed eight of the nine who played put in 18 minutes or more, with all eight contributing nine points or more. Aside from Royce White, who is a regular starter, the other four top scorers in the game would normally come off the bench. If depth helps win championships, then the Lightning have all the depth you need. 'When Junior got hurt, we had to go even deeper than expected,' Lightning head coach Kyle Julius said. 'Now that we've added Marvin Phillips and Doug Herring Jr. we're very deep. I can start anybody, any night. I'm proud of that. I love that. It's fun to practise that way and it's fun to play that way.' After an indifferent first half, especially the second quarter, the Lightning took charge in the second half. They wore down the Titans. White was especially effective in that half. He finished as the leading scorer with 23 points but the Titans were so worried about him going inside it opened the passing lanes and White found his teammates for open shots. 'We didn't move the ball in the second quarter the way I wanted to. We only had seven assists and that's a little bit unusual for us,' Julius said. 'We talked at halftime about allowing our game plan to take over, to stay the course; wear them down.' Kyle Johnson (6'5''-G-88, college: LIU Brooklyn, agency: Two Points) and Joel Friesen (6'4''-G, college: Alberta) also had exceptional nights. Johnson hit for 21 points while Friesen helped the Lightning through their rough spot in the second quarter with some big shots. He finished with 14 points. Tony Criswell (6'9''-PF-91, college: Missouri) and Herring Jr. finished with 11 points. With Cadougan's injury Herring played more than 30 minutes, even though he hasn't been with the team long enough to learn the entire offence. But the good things he brings were evident. 'I thought he had a good game. The stat sheet wasn't explosive or amazing for him but I thought he did a really good job,' Julius said. 'We could only run limited stuff because Doug and Marvin are still getting used to things. 'I thought our defence was solid overall. We turned them over a lot; we got a bunch of deflections; we got some steals in the passing lane. I thought that's what allowed us to get so many baskets on transition.' The Titans turned the ball over 20 times. The final score wasn't indicative of how dominant the Lightning were in the second half. The Titans only closed the gap in the final three minutes, something Julius was pleased about. They were led in scoring by guard Adam Blazek (6'1''-PG-92, college: Gannon) with 16 points. Paul Cooper (6'8''-F, college: Arkansas Tech) had 13, while A. J. Davis and Londoner Greg Morrow added 12 each. As for Phillips, the Lightning's all-time leading scorer and rebounder hit a three with his first touch of the ball in the first half but looked tentative. With Julius trying to keep Boyd and White out of foul trouble, Phillips played a little more than expected, seeing the floor for 20 minutes. He looked a great deal more comfortable in the second half. The difference between Herring Jr. and Phillips is that Herring Jr. was playing in Uruguay before joining the Lightning, while Phillips hasn't played at all this season. Before the game the Lightning released Canadian forward Troy Gottselig, saying he left because of personal reasons. Johnson, Williamson, Cadougan and Friesen are the Canadians on the Lightning. Each NBL team needs four Canadians to be on their roster. Even though Williamson is hurt and on injured reserve, he counts as one of their Canadians but the Lightning will have to go with 11 players. The Lightning play a pair of games this weekend against the Niagara River Lions, Saturday night at Budweiser Gardens and Sunday afternoon in St. Catharines.
