2016 NBLC Finals -- Game 4 -- June 8, 2016

Halifax 99-98 London
Halifax Leads 3-1

The Halifax Hurricanes are one win away from a championship thanks to a dramatic 99-98 win in Game 4 of the 2016 NBLC Finals on Wednesday at Budweiser Gardens.

After a back-and-forth first, second, and third quarters, the Hurricanes and Lightning came right down to the wire, with Akeem Scott drawing a foul with 4.0 seconds left as his Lightning were down 96-97. He dropped both, bringing the score to 98-97. Halifax then took the ball to Mike Glover off the inbound. He was fouled under the rim with just 2.2 seconds left. Glover went 2-2 from the line, ending London's chance at tieing the series up at home.

Scott led the Lightning and the game with 26 points. Shane Gibson led the Hurricanes with 20 points on 8-13 shooting -- which included a dagger three-pointer late in the fourth to give Halifax the lead.

Game 5 will take place in London on Friday.
