Gameday -- November 13th, 2014

Six teams take to the court in NBL Canada action Thursday evening, two games in Ontario and one in the Maritimes.

Central Division

Brampton A's head to the Hershey Centre to take on the Mississauga Power, the A's (0-4) are looking for their first win of the season. The A's came close to clinching their first win last game against the London Lightning. The A's were down by 24 points before coming back and narrowing the lead by only one point, only to fall 119-113. This is the fifth game in Ontario for the A's.

The Power (0-2) on the season are the top in the league in the Central Division after the first week of action. Can the A's knock the Power out, to get their first win? Tip-off is 11 a.m. at the Hershey Centre.

Game two of the Central Division takes place in Southern Ontario and it is the game to watch as the two rival teams, the Island Storm and the Windsor Express (1-1) meet for the first time since the Express came back to defeat the Storm (1-2) in the NBL Canada finals last year to win the series 4-3.

Will the Storm extract some revenge and get the win over the Express, or will the Express open new wounds and tame the Storm again? Tonight's game will be live streamed from the WFCU Centre in Windsor. Tip-off is 7 p.m.

Atlantic Division

One game is scheduled tonight in the Atlantic Divsion when the Halifax Rainmen take on the Moncton Miracles for the second time this season.  Last time, the Miracles washed the Rainmen away with a 117-113 victory at home. Both teams have not played in almost a week. They should be well rested and ready to hit the court. Who will prevail tonight? Tip-off is 7 p.m. at the Scotiabank Centre.
