The London Lightning have now won their ninth consecutive game. The Lightning’s last loss coming on December 9th have been on a roll ever sense.
In maybe not the most competitive of games the Lightning finished the game with a score of 129-98 over the Kitchener-Waterloo Titans, but even the score is not able to show just how one sided this game truly was.
Led by Royce White with 23 points and Ryan Anderson who was one assist away from a triple-double. In Mo Bolden’s third game back after injury, averaging 25 points in the first two also picked up 16 tonight.
The strongest player on the Kitchener-Waterloo Titans by far was Russell Byrd who finished with 24 points.
After a close first quarter, the Lighting opened the flood gates in the second to start building toward the big lead in the game outscoring the Titans 29-12 and the Titans were not able to pull themselves back after that.
The Lightning had control through this whole game. The Titans struggling to get inside and through the Lightning defense settled a lot for shots from the three point range that just were not falling. Coach Keith Vassell was very happy about that point.
“We have tended to, and we did it today again we sometimes give up easy baskets, but when we are playing good defense we are playing really good defense. We just have to minimize those opportunities and we went on a long stretch holding them to 2 points”
The Lightning with play next on January 13 at home against the 9-8 Moncton Magic.
