2016 NBLC Playoffs -- Divisional Finals -- May 27, 2016

London 107-88 Windsor
(London Wins 3-2)

The London Lightning are off to the NBLC Finals after taking down the Windsor Express 107-88 on Friday in Game 6 of their Central Division Final.

The Bolts used an effective defense to muffle Windsor's shooters throughout the game, as the Express failed to find a second option to Brandon Robinson.

Robinson and London's Akeem Wright tore up the first half, as both teams traded the lead throughout. London came out of the half on fire, outscoring Windsor 26-17 in the third quarter and 30-26 in the fourth thanks to an impressive 45 points off the bench.

All in all, London led by as much as 19 near the end of the third quarter on their way to taking down the two-time defending champs in six games.

Robinson led the game with 33 points. Akeem Scott led London with 23 points on 6-11 shooting.

Game 1 of the 2016 NBLC Finals will take place on June 2 (Thursday) in Halifax. Game 2 will take place on June 3 (Friday).
