Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders have taken a share of top spot in the BBL Championship, prevailing 68-73 after an immensely hard fought battle with the London Lions live on Sky Sports at Crystal Palace. The Riders had lost two of their previous four road games, and it was their last outing before the weekend's BBL Cup Final at the National Indoor Arena. The Lions are on a five-game losing streak.

Pavol Losonsky (203-F-88, college: Cal-Irvine) led all scorers with 17 points and 9 rebounds for the victors, supported by Drew Sullivan's 15 and a double-double of 11 points and 12 boards from Jay Couisnard. Joel Barkers and Adrien Sturt led the Lions with 15 points each.

The first quarter gave few clues as to what would come as the Riders came storming out of the blocks to score the first 8 points, including 6 for Losonsky; and that became 1-12 as the Lions could muster just one Tayo Ogedengbe free-throw in the first four minutes of the game. The performance was reminiscent of Leicester's first half defensive stifling of the Worcester Wolves on Saturday. The Lions did get things moving with a Mike Martin three-pointer to cut the lead to single digits, but Zaire Taylor responded in kind and the Riders carried their double-digit lead into the second quarter as Jorge Calvo scored the final basket of the opening ten minutes for a score of 15-25.

But that was turned on its head in the second stanza as, this time, the Lions opened with the first 6 points and held their visitors scoreless for three minutes, Barkers matching Losonsky's efforts with all 6 of those points. Their push became 17-5 over the first eight minutes of the quarter; the Riders stubbornly held onto their lead until Jordan Spencer tied the game at 30 with two minutes to play in the half, and the Lions took the lead with a pair of Sturt free-throws on their next offence. But the Riders dug in and hit the next 4 points through Losonsky and Couisnard to ensure that lead would last only 46 seconds and, after Ogedengbe put the Lions up again, Couisnard scored on the buzzer to ensure that the Riders held a slim 35-36 edge going into the break.

But the Lions stayed in touch as the teams traded baskets in the early exchanges of the third quarter until a 7-0 burst, capped by Spencer's triple, gave them the lead once more at 44-40. The Lions built on that lead, with Sturt scoring 6 straight points for them and blocking Anthony Rowe at the other end, as the hosts were 54-47 in the ascendancy - their largest lead of the game - with under two minutes to play after a spell in which the Riders were over-reliant on the three-point shot and missed 5/6 at the line. But Sullivan provided the momentum-changing moment as he drove the lane for an 'and-one' play inside the final minute in what became a 6-0 finish to the quarter as Riders also scored a steal and lay-up through Connor Washington and Taylor made 1/2 free-throws, after another steal, as the Riders rediscovered their defensive vigour to trail 53-54 heading into the decisive quarter.

That momentum stayed with them as they opened the fourth with an 11-4 surge with Couisnard and Losonsky scoring 4 each to lead 58-64. The Lions scored a quick 6 in a row, capped by Perry Lawson, but their momentum was halted by Calvo's three-pointer and, crucially, Leicester's lead became two possessions inside the final three minutes as Calvo stole the ball passed to Taylor behind his back: the latter was fouled, making 1/2 at the line. A spell of tough defence followed as neither side scored for a minute and a half after Martin got the Lions back to 66-68 with two minutes to play. Within the final 30 seconds, Taylor made just 1/2 at the line to keep the Lions' hopes alive and it was a one-point game as Martin scored with 11 seconds to play at 68-69. Couisnard was sent to the line, holding his nerve to make both free-throws and leaving the Lions 8 seconds to find a three-pointer to tie the game; but Lawson couldn't find a shot under pressure from Sullivan and the latter saw the game out with the final two free-throws.
