The Halifax Hurricanes live to see another day. And that day is Sunday and Game 7 of the Atlantic Division final. The Hurricanes staved off elimination in their NBL Canada playoff series by locking down their defence and securing an 86-70 victory over the Moncton Magic in Game 6 Friday night in Halifax. It was an ugly win but Tyler Thornton will take it. 'A win is a win and in a game like this, in a series like this, against a team like Moncton, we'll take it when we can get it,' said Thornton, who had 12 points off the bench, including two key three-pointers in the fourth quarter. 'Our backs were up against the wall. This potentially could've been our last game. But we wanted to do this for the home crowd and leave it all on the line and that's what we did. 'It all started on defence. The defence carried us the whole game and that's what we need on Sunday.' The rubber match in the tightly-contested series is slated for 2 p.m. at the Avenir Centre. The winner will face the St. John's Edge in the NBL Canada championship. Halifax is seeking its record fourth consecutive final appearance. Moncton has never played for a league championship. The Hurricanes held the Magic to just 30 points in the second half and just 12 in the fourth quarter. Moncton couldn't get inside against the smothering Halifax defence and the Magic were forced to fire low-percentage shots. The visitors were 4-for-19 from the field and hit just one of 10 three-point attempts in the final frame. 'Our defence was locked down especially in the second half,' Thornton said. 'Our guys responded by having each other's backs. We stayed together tonight. It's fun when you win like that. Everyone played well, everybody did their jobs.' Terry Thomas (6'4''-G/F-91, college: Ottawa) paced the Hurricanes again with a 28-point effort on 12-for-15 shooting. He also grabbed 13 rebounds and had three steals. Nick Evans (5'11''-PG) had 17 points for the Magic while Marcus Lewis had 14. Former Hurricane Billy White (6'8''-F-89, college: San Diego St.) struggled with a 1-for-13 night and four points. As a team, Moncton shot just 31 per cent and connected on just five of 32 three-point attempts in the game. Still, the Magic only trailed by seven with five minutes remaining. But it was Thornton's treys which crushed any hopes of a comeback. 'I was just shooting my shots and it was nice to contribute,' Thornton said. 'It's potentially our last game so I had to let it fly. You have to live with the result but, man, you got to let them fly. I'm glad it worked out.' Moncton staggered out of the gate, reminiscent of the Hurricanes' slow start in Game 4 on Monday when the Hurricanes fell behind 21-3 to start the game and 32-15 at the end of the first quarter. Before the Magic knew what hit them Friday, they were down 17-6. The Hurricanes had four steals and forced five turnovers in the opening quarter. But Moncton, down 11 at one point, cut the Halifax lead to 27-22 on an Evans put-back at the buzzer to end the quarter. Playing with urgency, the Hurricanes increased their lead to 19 in the second on a Thomas three followed by an uncontested jam which drew a roaring round of support from the Scotiabank Centre faithful. The Magic struggled in the quarter. They turned the ball over six times and were just 5-of-16 from the field. Following a timeout, Moncton closed the first half with seven straight points and trailed 52-40 at intermission. Moncton carried the momentum into the second half with a 14-2 run to pull even with Halifax at 54-all. But, again, the Magic went inexplicably cold, missing their next 11 field goal attempts as Halifax went on an 15-1 spurt to nearly regain its halftime advantage after three quarters. Halifax led 69-58 heading into the fourth. 'They would get their runs but we didn't break,' Thornton said. Thornton, who played four seasons at Duke, went to the NCAA Tournament each time with the Blue Devils. He played on teams that went to the Elite Eight and the Sweet 16. But he also was part of Duke teams that suffered two of the biggest upsets in the program's history: in 2012 against 15th seed Lehigh and two years later versus No. 14 Mercer. He knows about the pressures that come with a one-game, winner-take-all matchup. 'You know, it's fun,' Thornton said. 'It's what we live for. The fans came out and supported us greatly tonight so we want to win it for them and move onto a championship and win a championship. But we have one more to get to that point and we can't overlook any games, especially that one.'

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]
