Gameday -- November 16th, 2014

The London Lightning and Saint John Millrats were victorious on Sunday, to take them to the top of their respective divisions. While two teams shot up the standings, Sunday saw the end of a rough weekend for both the Halifax Rainmen and Mississauga Power. Both clubs started the season strong but now find themselves in the middle heading into the third week of the 2014-15 National Basketball League of Canada season.

London Lightning vs. Mississauga Power

It was a tale of two teams going in opposite directions, as the London Lightning notched back-to-back wins on back-to-back days after beating the Mississauga Power 113-102 at the Hershey Centre Sunday afternoon.

London once again fell on the play of Marvin Phillips, who lead the game with 33 points. Another Lightning forward, Jonathan Mills, lead the game with 14 rebounds while also dropping 24 points in just this third NBLC game.

The Mississauga Power saw their record plummet to 3-2 with their second loss in as many days. Despite outshooting London 44% to 38%, the club just broke the century marker late in the game. London dominated the boards, winning 47 balls to Mississauga's 35.

London will host Windsor next Sunday, while Mississauga get set to host Saint John on Thursday.

Saint John Millrats vs. Halifax Rainmen

The Saint John Millrats improved to a record of 3-1 with a dominate 110-85 in Halifax against the Rainmen.

The Rainmen, who now drop to a record of 2-2, were down by 10 points at half and unable to keep up with Saint John's leading scorers in Kenny Jones (25 points) and Anthony Anderson (23 points).

Halfiax are now at an even record at 2-2 so far this season. The Rainmen never really got the offence going, relying on Emmanuel Jones' modest 18 point performance to help keep pace.

The Millrats take on the aforementioned Mississauga Power at the Hershey Centre on November the 20th while Halifax host Moncton next Sunday.
