  1. Don't underestimate Phoenix in the play-offs - Thomas

    Cheshire coach Ben Thomas believes his team need fear no-one if they reach the BBL play-offs, despite the current likelihood of being the unseeded team in their last-eight pairing.

    “We've beaten London Royals twice this season so I feel that mentally we wouldn't fear those guys,” he said. “Newcastle - we've lost to them three times but two of them have been really close.”

    Cheshire won at reigning champions Leicester Riders on Friday night, avenging a close defeat to them earlier in the season.

    Thomas believes the scalp of a side currently second in the table shows what they are capable of.

    “They [the BBL's top sides] all know that we can beat anyone on our day,” he said. “So I'd say we're more looking forward to it than anything else.

    "We've got to take it seriously and that means being professional all the time, so when we come in to games we can put out the best version of ourselves on the floor every time.

    “Any team we play will not want to come to play us at the Ellesmere Sports Village because they know just what a loud, tough place it can be to play,” he added.

    What is basketball?

    • A game where two teams compete to score the most points by throwing a ball into their opponents net.
    • Players can move freely around the court, except for the player with the ball who can only move when bouncing or 'dribbling' the ball.
    • All you need to get started is a ball and a hoop and you don't need any special kit - just comfortable clothes and trainers.

    Is basketball for me?

    Basketball can be played by people of any age, size or ability and with thousands of outdoor courts across the country - where you can play for free - there's plenty of places to practice if you don't fancy competing with a team.
