Leicester Riders head coach Rob Paternostro is looking forward to the next in a series of ‘incredible’ games this week, as his side take on Newcastle Eagles in the semi-finals of the BBL Play-Offs.
Riders entertain Newcastle at Loughborough University on Thursday 1st May (7:30pm tip-off), in a rematch of this year’s BBL Cup Final and last year’s BBL Play-Off Final, with the Riders play-caller emphasising the quality of games between the two teams.
“It’s that time of year, and I think we were always going to face Newcastle one way or the other,” he said ahead of Thursday’s home leg.
“The games this year have been incredible and anybody that has been at all of them will tell you that.
“From the Cup Final down to all of the league games, at our place and up there, they have been incredible games. I think they’re a credit to our league and both teams have a lot of respect for each other.
“When you’re sitting here at the end of April or the beginning of May, this is what it’s all about and we’re looking forward to it.”
