Leicester Riders are not hung up on league

Basketball

Leicester Riders coach Rob Paternostro says his side are not getting too hung up on the league table despite being in third place.

Paternostro said he was glad to be near the top of the BBL but was just trying to focus on each game.

He told BBC Radio Leicester: "The top four teams have separated themselves from the rest which has been nice for us but there's a long way to go."

The Riders take on MK Lions at Milton Keynes on Friday evening.

"Milton Keynes is a difficult place to play - they're a talented team," Paternostro said.
