The Halifax Hurricanes had a better start to Game 5 of their NBL Canada playoff game against the Moncton Magic, but it was their finish that needed some work. Billy White (6'8''-F-89, college: San Diego St.) scored 29 points against his former mates as the Magic defeated the Hurricanes 111-93 on home court for a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven semifinal series on Wednesday night. Rhamel Brown (6'7''-F-92, college: Manhattan) and Terry Thomas (6'4''-G/F-91, college: Ottawa), who had 25 points on the night, made sure the Hurricanes would break fast out of the gate unlike the 21-3 first-quarter deficit they surrendered in Game 4 at home on Monday. Brown scored the game's first four points and Thomas added eight as Halifax jumped out to a 14-8 lead. But it only took three minutes for the Magic to go on a 15-1 surge to take the lead before the Hurricanes would eventually leave the opening quarter tied 24-24. From there it was mostly Moncton. 'We got into foul trouble early and I ended in some rotations that I didn't want to at that point in time,' said Hurricanes coach Mike Leslie. 'Any momentum we had early just went away a little bit in the second quarter.' The Magic took advantage of a horrendous shooting effort by the Hurricanes to open a 13-point lead (53-40) in the second quarter. The Hurricanes were ice cold with only four baskets to show in 20 attempts. In fact, seven of their 16 points in the quarter came from the foul line. The Hurricanes hurt themselves further by running into foul trouble midway through the second. And the Magic made them pay dearly from the charity stripe, making 10 of their 11 opportunities. Halifax rediscovered its offensive game in the third quarter by scoring 30 points, but their deficit grew as the Magic poured in 35. A Terry Thomas three-pointer with 0.2 seconds on the clock cut Halifax's deficit to 18 points (88-70) entering the final stanza. The Thomas hoop gave the Hurricanes some life as they clawed their way back to within 12 early in the final session but couldn't get any more traction. Three-pointers by White and Trey Kell (6'4''-PG-96, college: San Diego St., agency: Slash Sports) pushed the lead to 19 and the Magic cruised home. Kell added 22 points and 14 rebounds for the Magic while Marcus Lewis had 19 and Jason Calliste (6'2''-G-90, college: Oregon) 12. Joel Kindred (6'4''-G-91, college: St.Augustine) had 15 points for the Hurricanes while Meshack Lufile added 13, Brown 12 and Jordan Washington 10. Hurricanes sharpshooter Mike Poole was held to two points. Moncton was magic from the free throw line, making 37 of 45 (82.2 per cent) while Halifax was just 20 of 38 (52.6). Both teams struggled from long distance, combining to make only 17 of 56 threes. Leslie said he needs a total-team effort for Friday's Game 6 at Scotiabank Centre (7 p.m.). 'They were drawing us into fouls and we just have to be better defensively. Collectively as a team we have to be better defensively. 'It's the first team to four wins and we need two more.' The Hurricanes' hunt for a record fourth-straight league championship appearance is in jeopardy. Halifax won the NBL Canada title in 2015-16 but lost to the London Lightning in the past two seasons. Game 7, if necessary, will be played on Sunday in Moncton (2 p.m.).
In the other semifinal, the St. John's Edge own a 3-2 series lead over the Kitchener-Waterloo Titans. The Edge won 107-92 on Tuesday and can wrap up the series on Friday at home.

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 - 6 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.

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]

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]
