Match Preview: Surrey Scorchers vs. Manchester Giants

Surrey go into this match looking to make it five wins in a row against the Giants.

When: Sunday, tip-off 17:00 
Where:  Trafford Powerleague Arena
The Giants have struggled this season losing all six of their matches, although a number of their games have been tight affairs. Their most recent defeat was to the Worcester Wolves where the final score was 91-84 to the Wolves. This could have been a different story had the Giants not found themselves 16-0 in the first quarter.
The Scorchers, on the other hand, will be looking to rebound after their close-fought defeat to the Sheffield Sharks on Saturday. The scores were neck and neck going into the final minute until a timely free-throw helped edge the Sharks to victory. The defeat leaves Surrey just outside the play-off places. However, a win today would boost their end of season hopes. 

Ones to watch
Surrey Scorchers 
Will Neighbour top scored with 23pts in the Scorchers defeat to Sheffield, while Chaz Rollins picked up 15pts and 12 rebounds, and both will be players to watch out for in tonight’s game.

Manchester Giants 
Callum Jones is a player to keep an eye on as he is the giant’s top scorer this season on 72pts while Jerelle Okoro isn’t too far behind on 67.
