Leicester Riders cautious after weekend win double

Paternostro's side have won all four of their BBL fixtures

Leicester Riders head coach Rob Paternostro has urged caution despite his side's fantastic early-season form.

The Riders recorded a fine weekend win double, beating Sheffield 99-94 on the road on Friday and storming to a 92-63 victory over Mersey Tigers on Saturday.

They have won all four league games and are into the BBL Cup semi-finals.

"There's a good feeling in the team right now. There is a lot to work on but it's a good start - no doubt," Paternostro told BBC Radio Leicester.

Paternostro delighted with Riders start

"It's a good time to be a Riders fan right now. We have been playing unselfish basketball and it's fun.

"But it's only November and we go all the way to May so we have to make sure we keep our feet on the ground."

Riders now take a break from league action with a two-legged BBL Cup semi-final against Newcastle Eagles.

The first leg is at the John Sandford Centre on Saturday, 26 November.
