The first half was so bad London Lightning coach Kyle Julius said he was 'almost laughing.' 'We haven't had a lot of those this year,' he said. Luckily for the Lightning, his players locked in in the second half and were able to put the Cape Breton Highlanders away 129-109 in a National Basketball League of Canada game Wednesday night in front of 2,070 at Budweiser Gardens. It was the Bolts' ninth win in succession and 23rd in their last 24. The first half was a mish-mash of spectacular dunks, lousy defence and great shooting by the Highlanders. It's how they stayed in the game. The Lightning didn't make things easy for themselves. They didn't take care of the basketball and didn't move it as well as they can, especially in the first quarter, which ended 39-36 for the Lightning. A 75-point quarter is not something the Bolts want to see. The expansion Highlanders shot the lights out in the first half from three-point range, making 8-of-15, six of them in the first quarter. When the Lightning came out to defend the three, they got the ball inside to their big men, who did a good job of taking it to the basket. The expansion Highlanders came in ready to play. The Lightning hammered them in Sydney, when Ryan Anderson (6'4''-G-87, college: Nebraska) set a record for three-point shots made in a game. 'They are talented. All these teams in this league have talent,' Julius said. 'We were just soft in the first half. Even our body language was shot. I was almost laughing at that. 'I didn't even get upset at the half. I said to them, 'Look I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt. Let's get back to the game plan. Let's set out what we set out to do.' I didn't have to kick and scream and yell. They had a decent second half.' This game turned late in the third quarter and early in the fourth, when the Lightning began to take over the offensive boards. They road key baskets by Kyle Johnson (6'5''-G-88, college: LIU Brooklyn, agency: Two Points) and Joel Friesen and some tough defence from Marcus Capers (6'4''-G-89, college: Washington St., agency: Interperformances) to the win. Garrett Williamson (6'5''-G-88, college: St.Joseph's) then broke the game open when the Highlanders couldn't stay with the still-fresh Lightning. Friesen and Johnson hit some big three-point shots when the game was close and Capers solidified a shaky defence as well as contributing 10 points and seven rebounds. Royce White (6'8''-F-91, college: Iowa St.) had 20 points and 12 rebounds, while Johnson had 19 points, Williamson 17 and Friesen 16. Chad Frazier (6'4''-G-92, college: UAB) had 24 to top the Highlanders, with Charles Mann Jr. adding 19 and Billy Rush 16. The Lightning used everyone on their bench to find someone who could turn things around. Julius eventually found three or four players to take control. 'Defensively it took us a little while to get going,' Friesen said. 'We didn't really set the tone defensively like we wanted to in the beginning. But we eventually got it together and had a much better second half.' Friesen touched on the fact the Highlanders were still smarting from what happened when the Lightning made the trip into their building. 'I'm not surprised by how they played,' he said. 'Last time we played Ryan had (13) threes and we set a record with a 14-game win streak against them. Many teams will not let that happen again, especially coming on the road, and they punched us in the mouth first and we responded in the second half.' If there's one thing the Lightning have noticed it's that everyone is going to give them their best game. 'When you talk about having a target on their back, the first place team always has a target on their back,' Julius said. 'But we have a significantly better win record that anyone in the league other than Halifax. You can't relax.' The Lightning now head to the east coast. They leave Friday before playing the Island Storm on Saturday and the Moncton Miracles on Sunday.
