FCFP Pre-Game Inspection: Dec.30 at Five

1. Busy Week Ahead 

The Lightning are currently on the road to face the Sudbury Five tonight before returning home to play three games in four nights to close out week two of the 2019-20 National Basketball League of Canada season. Thursday features a home rematch with the Windsor Express, who narrowly handed the Lightning their first loss of the season on a Shaq Keith buzzer beater. Saturday and Sunday will feature rematches with the Titans and Five respectively and will give fans plenty of opportunities to to see their Lightning at home early in the season.

2. D What? Defense!

The Lightning allow the second least amount of points per game by an opponent to start the season. After holding both KW (98 points) and Windsor (85 points) to sub-100 points, they look to continue their defensive streak against the Five tonight. The Lightning also lead the league in lowest field goal percentage allowed and lowest three point field goal percentage allowed. Coach Doug Plumb has his guys working hard on defense and it's showing. It's only a matter of time before it starts translating to more wins for the London Lightning.
