  2. Preview: Newcastle Eagles v London Lions

    Tip-off: 19:30 BST

    London Lions missed the chance to win the BBL Championship title on Monday with an 84-88 loss to Cheshire Phoenix. It was just their sixth of the season but a win today against Newcastle Eagles would see them claim the title.

    The Lions will still be crowned champions if they lose and then second-place Leicester Riders also lose to the Surrey Scorchers. Should Lions lose and the Riders win, both teams will have a shot at the title when they meet on Sunday 28th April, the final day of the season.

    Newcastle Eagles will finish third no matter what the outcome of their two remaining matches are and have therefore qualified for the BBL play-offs.

    London Lions have won both the teams' previous meetings in the BBL this season.
