BBL Preview: London Lions v Glasgow Rocks

On the back of their highest-ever league finish, the London Lions find themselves on the brink of their first BBL Final since they were defeated by Newcastle at the final hurdle in 2015.

The regular season runners-up had to rely on double overtime to progress past Worcester Wolves in last week’s two-leg quarter-finals.

Cory Dixon produced one of the standout individual performances of the season, registering 29 points and 17 rebounds as the Lions reached the last four for the third time in four years.

Meanwhile, Glasgow Rocks also benefited from a show of individual brilliance to reach the semi-finals, as Earl Brown recorded 23 points to help the Scottish outfit come from behind to defeat Surrey Scorchers 99-75 on the night and 181-159 on aggregate.

League winners the Leicester Riders take on the Bristol Flyers in the weekend's other semi-final, with the winners booking a place in the final at London's O2 Arena on Sunday 20 May.
