BRISTOL Flyers suffered a blow to their play-off hopes after agonisingly losing 113-111 away at Glasgow Rocks in a game that went to quadruple overtime.
Glasgow’s dramatic win has moved them back to fourth in the table, while the Flyers remain in ninth spot – two points behind eighth-placed Plymouth Raiders with a game in hand.
The Flyers looked like they might claim the win when they went 10 points late in regulation time, but Greg Pryor scored four points in a row down the stretch to help close that gap.
Panos Mayindombe and Thomas hit big shots to force two more extra periods before the Flyers erased a seven-point deficit as quadruple overtime occurred once again. The Rocks came out on top, though, despite the visitors having a chance to snatch victory on the final shot.
Bristol’s Fred Thomas was the game’s top scorer with 32 points. He also claimed 11 rebounds.
Kenny Carpenter was Glasgow’s top scorer with 21, just ahead of Greg Pryor and Bo Zeigler with 20.
