BBL Preview: Worcester Wolves v London Lions

After securing a second-place finish for the first time in the team's history, London Lions travel to Worcester Wolves for the first leg of the BBL Play-Off quarter-final.

Lions made the Play-Off Final in 2015 but lost to Newcastle and the London club enter the play-offs on the back of a string of good results. An impressive 7-1 record throughout April saw Lions pair Vince Macaulay and Brandon Peel named the BBL's Coach and Player of the Month respectively.

Despite losing their final game of the regular season 90-75 in Glasgow, Worcester's seventh-placed finish was enough to see them book a place in the postseason.

Although the Wolves finished below their opponents in the table, the 2014 Play-Off winners got the better of the Lions in two of the clubs' three meetings during the 2017/2018 campaign and will be looking for a third consecutive victory over the London-based outfit.

Both sides are potent threats going forward, with Wolves' George Beamon third in BBL scoring while Justin Robinson of Lions is fifth.
