Released: January 06, 2019

(WINDSOR, ON) – Three NBL Canada teams are currently on 3-game winning streaks including the Windsor Express who turned the trick on the league leading Moncton Magic last night, 110-102. The win puts the Express a half game behind the London Lightning (7-8) with three games in hand. 

The chippy affair with Moncton saw three technicals awarded with the edge to the Magic, otherwise Windsor led in all regards on the night. The player of the game for the Express was Juan Pattillo who dropped 25 points and a whole lot of attitude on Moncton. The big man also has a block, a steal, and an assist to go with 8 boards.

Ryan Anderson also filled out the stat line with 20 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, and a block.Shooting guard Tyrrel Tate was close behind with 16 points, 5 boards, and a single assist and steal. Horace Wormely was solid on point as he put up 9 points along with 5 assists and even earned himself a block.

Off the bench, DeAndre Thomas again took top honours with 15 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 assists. Additionally, Thomas won the personal duel in the paint with former Express forward Nick Evans.

Chris Jones also dropped in 15 points, 7 boards, 4 assists, and 2 steals. During a concerning sequence of events, Jones caught a finger in the eye, but quickly returned to the game, much to the relief of the over one thousand in attendance.

Windsor’s ball movement was on display as the team distributed 18 assists amongst six players.

Corey Allmond and Duke Mondy led the Moncton attack with 22 and 21 points respectively as the visitors ran out to a 28-22 opening quarter lead. The Express put it together in the 2nd period as they threw 33 points downrange for a 55-47 halftime margin.

In the last couple of seasons, Windsor’s nemesis was the third quarter. Head coach Bill Jones seems to have a handle on it this year as evidenced last night. The Express extended their lead by 4 points as they topped Moncton’s 27 points with 31 of their own.

The Magic out-scored Windsor by 4 in the final period, but it wasn’t enough to turn their fortune.
