Magic escape with Game 4 win to even series with Hurricanes - Apr 30, 2019

The Moncton Magic bent but didn't break on Monday night. And by the skin of their teeth, they have evened the Atlantic Division final series with the Halifax Hurricanes. Moncton led by as much as 21 points in Game 4 at Scotiabank Centre only to see Halifax cut the lead to one. But the Hurricanes, who never led in the contest, couldn't pull ahead and the Magic escaped with a 94-89 victory to take the best-of-seven back to New Brunswick tied at two games apiece. Game 5 is Wednesday night at the Avenir Centre in Moncton. 'That was a hard-fought game,' said Moncton's Billy White. The former Hurricanes forward had seven points in 25 minutes of action. 'Now we have to take care of home court. We regained home-court advantage. We play better at home and we're just excited to get back to Moncton with a win.' On three occasions, Mike Poole (6'5''-F-92, college: Iona) brought Halifax to within three points in the fourth quarter. And with 41 seconds left on the clock, his put back pulled the host side to within a point. But strong defensive work by the Magic and timely free throws sealed the victory for the visitors. 'We were high in the first half and Halifax came out in the second half and stunned us and slowed our pace down,' White said. 'But we kept digging and played some great defence and that's how we got the win.' Trey Kell (6'4''-PG-96, college: San Diego St., agency: Slash Sports) paced the Magic with 24 points while Corey Allmond (6'2''-G-88, college: SHSU) added 14. Terry Thomas (6'4''-G/F-91, college: Ottawa) shrugged off a cold start to lead Halifax with 16 points. But if the first quarter was any indication, the score shouldn't have been as close as it finished. Before the Hurricanes knew what hit them, they trailed 8-0 and didn't score their first point until 2:58 into the game on a Chadrack Lufile (6'9''-F-90, college: Wichita St.) free throw. Halifax was down 10-1 when Mike Leslie called a timeout at the 8:39 mark. The Hurricanes head coach was animated with his players but the message didn't get through. The host side missed its first 10 field goal attempts before Rhamel Brown scored on a rebound with 4:47 left in first quarter. Halifax trailed at that point 21-3 and 32-15 at the end of the first quarter. 'In Game 3 we were a little sluggish so we made sure we came out here aggressive tonight,' White said. The Hurricanes missed 13 of their first 14 shots and hit only two of 10 from beyond the arc. Joel Kindred (6'4''-G-91, college: St.Augustine) netted both three-pointers in the opening frame. 'At the end of the day, we're going to have games where we can't hit shots,' Lufile said. 'We just have to keep shooting. That's what we've been thriving off all year so why stop now? 'We were able to come back and unfortunately we were short but we have to stick to it and continue to play the basketball we're strong at.' Thirty fouls - 15 to each team - were called in the first half, 62 in total. The game amounted to more of a free-throw competition. Moncton was in the bonus with plenty of minutes to go in each of the four quarters; Halifax in the first three quarters. 'I don't even know what to say about it,' Lufile said. Halifax had 32 team fouls in the game. 'The refs have their own way to call the game. I didn't like it. But at the end of the day, we just have to play our game and not worry about the refs.' Thomas, who had 15 points in the first quarter of Saturday's Game 3, struggled to find his shooting stroke. He was 1-for-9 from the field, including missing all six three-point attempts, in the first half. When Allmond drained a trey with 3:26 to go in the second quarter, it gave Moncton its largest lead of 21. But Halifax then went on a 14-2 run late in the first half and headed into the break trailing 59-47. In the Central Division final, the Kitchener-Waterloo Titans have won two straight at home versus the St. John's Edge to even the best-of-seven series. Damon Lynn and Justin Strings each scored 19 points as the Titans took Game 4 97-86 on Sunday. The Edge were outscored 29-11 in the fourth quarter. Game 5 goes Tuesday evening in Kitchener, Ont. The Edge will host Game 6 on Friday and Game 7, if necessary, on Sunday afternoon.

Edge Fight But Cannot Hold on in Game 2 - 8 days ago
The St. John's Edge were looking to even the Best of Seven NBL Canada Finals on Saturday night in Moncton, NB. After a tough first half the Edge could not hold on near the end as they dropped Game 2 to the Magic by a score of 107-100. It was a positive sight when Glen Davis (6'9''-F-86, college: LSU) returned to the Edge lineup for Game 2 of the series. With the influx of scoring from Davis and a reinvigorated team after two days off, it looked as though the Edge had the right pieces to t...   [read more]
