Five-game winning streak vaults London Lightning up division standings - Feb 20, 2019

Better late than never. The London Lightning (17-16) look to have turned a corner with seven games remaining in their National Basketball League of Canada regular season. The Lightning stretched their winning streak to five games, beating the Sudbury Five 124-107 Saturday and the Kitchener-Waterloo Titans 115-104 Sunday at Budweiser Gardens. The Bolts have come a long way in five games. On Feb. 6, the Lightning were in last place in the Central Division and out of the playoff picture when they took a humbling 121-88 loss to the rival Express in Windsor. They answered with an incredible double-overtime win over the Express the next night back in London and they have built on that momentum to take a tenuous grasp of third place in the Central Division. Now, the Lightning have their sights set on the second-place Express (15-14), who have dropped four of their last five games. Things are suddenly looking up for the two-time defending NBL champions, who have struggled with consistency for most of the season. 'We were at a point where we didn't think we were going to make the playoffs and now we are just locked in and we've put together some really good games,' Lightning guard Alex Johnson (5'10''-PG-88, college: NC State) said. Players are talking now about having trust in their teammates, not dwelling on mistakes or bad calls and supporting each other with positive energy. 'We're pulling together as a team,' Johnson said. 'I don't think anybody cares about individual statistics. Right now, our goal is to make the playoffs and win another championship and everyone has bought into that.' Bolts forward Garrett Williamson (6'5''-G-88, college: St.Joseph's) said finally having a full and healthy roster is a big reason for the turnaround, but commitments to defence and teamwork also are paying dividends. 'We're coming to the game knowing our defence will spark our offence,' Williamson said. 'We're sharing the ball better, we're trusting the pass and . . . we're getting that buy-in from everybody, which is really what we needed.' Williamson added that players are all focused on the same message, veterans are giving better direction and younger players are answering the call. 'Our defence is getting us out and running,' Williamson said. 'We are getting easy buckets. Guys are feeling good about it and we are sharing the ball. We have to stick to that recipe. It's working and it's won us championships in the past.' Forward Marcus Capers (6'4''-G-89, college: Washington St., agency: Interperformances), whose energy on the court has proven contagious, said the adversity and close wins and losses the Bolts went through early in the season have made them a much stronger unit. 'On and off the court it is all coming together and I think that's why we are on this little winning streak that we're on,' he said. 'The concept is everybody eats. We're sharing the ball. We're sharing defensive assignments. . . . We have games where every person that plays scores.' The Lightning play host to the St. John's Edge Thursday night at 7 p.m. in the sixth game of their seven-game homestand, which wraps up after 13-day hiatus on Thursday, March 7 against the Halifax Hurricanes at 7 p.m. at Budweiser Gardens.

The St. John's Edge played until the final buzzer on Thursday night, giving the 4,000 plus fans at Mile One Centre every bit of what they had left.

The Edge had a big hill to climb in this series as they were down 3 games to none coming into this one.

Edge Cannot Hang On In Fourth, Drop Game 3 to Magic - 8 days ago
The St. John's Edge were back at home and looking to get back into the series against the Moncton Magic on Monday night at Mile One Centre. The Edge fought hard all game and held the lead going into the fourth quarter, but Moncton would go on a 14-0 run to start the quarter and complete the comeback, taking Game 3 by a score of 103-93. It has been a tough couple of games leading into this one for the Edge. They were victims of a Moncton comeback in Game 1 and then had the same result in G...   [read more]
