The St. John’s Edge are looking to rebound against the London Lightning tonight in Game 2 of the NBL’S Central Division finals.
The expansion Edge lost a heartbreaker in double overtime Tuesday, 140-133 in Game 1. It was quite the show in a close match-up which saw the teams exchange leads throughout. St. John’s was up by 10 after the first half but the league’s defending champions stormed back for the win.
St. John’s advanced to the second round of the playoffs in this their inaugural season after sweeping the Windsor Express. Tip-off in London is 8:30 island time. The best-of-seven series shifts to St. John’s on Saturday where The Edge will play to a home crowd in Game 3.
