Plymouth Raiders unable to end losing run at home

raidersPLYMOUTH Raiders’ shocking run of form continued at the Pavilions on Sunday when they were beaten 94-83 by fifth-placed London Lions.

The defeat was Jay Marriott side’s eighth in a row in all competitions and they remain 10 points off a play-off spot with just nine matches to go.

Sunday’s match was quite even until half-time, with Lions just edging it 46-43.

But in the third quarter the visitors, inspired by Makal Stibbins, pulled away and finished the period 71-64 up.

Raiders, who had endured an over-time defeat at Sheffield on Friday night, could not pull the game back in the final 10 minutes.

Stibbins was the star of the show, scoring a game-high 32 points.

Jordan Clarke was Raiders’ top scorer with 21.

Raiders, who are 11th in the 13-team BBL Championship, are not back in action until March 26 when they entertain Durham Wildcats.
