Third straight loss has Bolt's coach at a loss - Jan 14, 2019

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Coach Elliott Etherington was at his wit's end after the London Lightning dropped their third straight game, falling 107-98 to the Saint John Riptide Sunday at Budweiser Gardens. The exasperated coach increasingly is growing tired of explaining how the Lightning keep losing in the exact same way. The Bolts (8-11), who are in last place in the National Basketball League of Canada's Central Division, lost their previous two games in overtime, 122-119 Saturday night to the Express in Windsor and 129-122 to the Cape Breton Highlanders Thursday night in London. In all three losses, the Lightning have fallen behind more than once, caught up and then failed to put the win away down the stretch. The Lightning trailed the Riptide 89-80 with about 7:30 left in the game, but cut that lead to 101-98. Maurice Bolden (6'10''-G/F-89, college: S.Mississippi) missed a three-pointer with about a minute left and Saint John (5-12) scored on the turnover to seal the win. It's those failures to finish and recurring lapses in focus that are infuriating for the rookie coach. 'I feel like I'm repeating myself and that's what's getting annoying,' Etherington said. 'We keep talking about the same things and we keep making the same mistakes and that's true for everybody across the board. 'We shoot ourselves in the foot too often. That's been our problem all year and we have to fix it.' The Riptide went on a 12-0 run to take a 36-25 lead about four minutes into the second quarter, but the Lightning pushed back to cut Saint John's advantage to 49-48 at the half. Etherington shouldered the blame for the Lightning's struggles and added he has to do better at holding players accountable. 'I'm not doing a good job, that's for sure,' he said. 'I have to figure out how to be better. It's that simple. 'I'm looking at myself in the mirror, saying the same damn thing. I keep messing up fourth quarters. We have to fix that. I don't know how we are going to do that because we know what the problem is. We've been talking about it for awhile; we just have to do it.' Veteran forward Kirk Williams (6'7''-PF-81, college: Bridgeport) Jr., who led the Lightning with 22 points off the bench, said the problems are obvious. 'Sometimes in the game, it looks like we are not working hard,' he said 'We are getting outrebounded and we're just not playing together. Everybody sees it.' He said it is encouraging that the Lightning have shown they can come back from big deficits, however, and he sees things improving once Garrett Williamson (6'5''-G-88, college: St.Joseph's) and Kevin Ware (6'2''-G-93, college: Georgia St.) are healed and back in the lineup. 'We'll figure it out,' he said. 'That's what you have to do - keep going back to the drawing board and see what works for us - because something's not working for us and we've got to find out what that is.' Veteran forward Marvin Phillips said the worst thing the Bolts can do is to let frustration get the best of them. 'Nobody wants to lose, but I'm still 100 per cent confident and I fully believe in this team and the players on this team . . . the coach included,' Phillips said.'We are a professional basketball team and we will bounce back. It looks ugly right now, but we all truly believe we have the talent to do so. We just need to do it.' Frank Bartley IV (6'3''-G-94, college: La-Lafayette) led the Riptide with 26 points, Terry Maston (6'8''-F-95, college: Baylor) had 24, Chris Early (6'7''-F-88, college: Chattanooga) 14, and Jeremiah Mordi (6'4''-G, college: Queens, NY) and Kemy Osse (6'1''-PG-93, college: UALR) had 13. Bolden finished with 18 points and six blocks for the Lightning. Jaylen Babb-Harrison (6'4''-G-93, college: E.Kentucky) had 16, Xavier Moon 15 and 10 rebounds, and AJ Gaines had 12 points. The Bolts travel to Kitchener-Waterloo to take on the Express Thursday night at 7 p.m.
