Leicester Riders undefeated start to the season came to an end on the road in Scotland at the hands of the Rocks.

The Riders entered Glasgow with a best ever start to the season of 9-0 ahead of the top of the table clash with the Rocks and familiar face in the former Riders guard, Neil Watson.

The Riders opened the game well with Taylor King showing his scoring ability early in the first half pouring in 15 points quickly for the Riders helped in them out to a single-digit lead in the first half. Glasgow’s Neil Watson helped the Rocks back to a narrow lead at the end of the first half in Glasgow.

Brandon Clark caught fire from three to begin the second half to help a 14-2 run including 12 points from the American guard however Rocks would regain the lead minutes later. Again the Riders pushed open a barrier to lead at the start of the fourth quarter but timely hot shooting from the Rocks gave them the leads down the stretch and they were able to hold on to take victory at home.

Brandon Clark led the Riders with 27 points to go along with six assists whilst Taylor King adds 15 points and Pierre Hampton 14 points and 10 rebounds.
