The London Lightning faltered last week to end a league record 14-game winning streak, but their high-powered offense hasn’t stalled, winning two in a row leading up to their tilt against the KW Titans on Thursday.
The Lightning have scored less than 100 points just once in their last 14 games, their loss to the Windsor Express last Wednesday. London is managing a league-leading 116.5 points for per game. Their defense hasn’t been too shabby either, a modest 102 points per game, good for fourth.
That defense will get a serious boost Thursday night when Marcus Capers returns to the lineup in his second year on the team. Following a league suspension for an off-court incident, Capers has finished community service in an effort to get back in action. He finished the 15-16 season with 55 blocks and 212 rebounds.
The KW Titans, meanwhile, have struggled to string wins together, but have improved as the season wears on. After a dismal 2-6 start, The Titans have crawled close to the .500 mark, winning three of their last four, two being on the road.
London leads the season series between the two teams 2-1 with four games yet to be played including Thursday night.
