Leicester Riders suffer defeat at Milton Keynes Lions

Rob Paternostro
Paternostro's side are joint seventh in the BBL table

Leicester Riders' away woes continued with a 102-97 defeat in a pulsating game against Milton Keynes Lions.

Riders led 29-28 after the first period but Lions responded in style to lead 82-72 at the end of the third period.

And despite a remarkable double-double of 25 points and 12 assists from Ryan Zamroz, Riders could not bridge the ten-point gap in the final period.

The defeat means Leicester have slipped to joint eighth in the BBL table with Guildford Heat.

Lions, who ended a seven-game losing streak, have kept alive their slim play-off hopes.
