The Glasgow Rocks kept up their recent good run of form as they picked up their fifth BBL Championship victory with a 76-82 victory over the Surrey Heat at Surrey Sports Park on Sunday afternoon.

A 10-1 start to the game from the Rocks saw the visitors explode out of the blocks, but this only saw to spur the Heat on as they responded with a 9-2 burst of their own to trim the deficit back to two points at 10-12 with four minutes left in the opening period. The visitors managed to keep their noses in front for the remainder of the quarter with a Kieron Achara three-point-play taking their lead back out to nine points at 12-21, but a Peter Simek basket for the Heat left the home side trailing by seven points at 14-21 at the end of the opening stanza.

In the second quarter, both sides traded baskets for the majority of the period and a further Simek basket trimmed the gap back to three points at 28-31 with less than three minutes remaining in the half. That was as close as the Heat would get before the half as another Kieron Achara three-point-play saw the Rocks heading into the locker rooms leading 34-43 at the half.

In the second half, a Frank Holmes basket trimmed the deficit back to 47-52 midway through the third quarter. Once again however, the home side could not get themselves any closer as an Kieron Achara three-pointer sparked a 9-4 finish for the Rocks as they headed into the final stanza leading 51-61.

In the final quarter, the Heat opened with a 11-2 start to get themselves back to within a point at 62-63 with 6:11 left in the contest, but a Sterling Davis three-pointer kept the Rocks on track and themselves in front as they held off a resilient Heat outfit.

The home side tried desperately to get themselves back into the game, but they could not get closer than four points at 72-76 with 44 seconds remaining in the game. The Rocks maintained their strength of character down the stretch and sealed the victory from the foul-line.

Kieron Achara led all scorers in the game with 24 points for the Rocks in the victory, while Chavis Holmes led the scoring for the Heat with 20 points personal.
