The streak continues for the London Lightning.
Playing at Budweiser Gardens on Thursday (Dec. 13), the National Basketball League of Canada’s winningest team improved on their unblemished record by posting a 131-110 win over the visiting Moncton Miracles.
Coming into the game, Moncton was aiming to be the team that would hand London their first loss of the season.
Playing point for point for much of the first half, that goal looked possible until Adrian Moss and Rodney Buford stepped up put some spark into the Lightning offence late in the second quarter.
Trailing the Miracles, an energetic Moss mixed it up around the Moncton defence, giving Buford a chance to unleash the big guns. Dropping a pair of back-to-back three pointers to re-establish London’s lead, The Sheriff seemed almost unstoppable, draining a total of six triples on the way to a game leading 26 points for the Lightning.
Up 52-44 at the half, London only seemed to get better as the game went on, adding 37 and 42 points respectively to the teams tally over the final two quarters.
With the win, the Lightning improve their season record to a perfect 11-0.
They will put that record on the line once again this coming Saturday when the seven and six Oshawa Power make their third trip of the 2012-13 season to the Budweiser Gardens on Saturday (Dec. 15).
