(WINDSOR, ON) – Home court advantage struck again, as the Windsor Express forced a Game 6 of the NBL Central Conference Finals with a 123-112 victory over the Brampton A’s, Tuesday night. With the win, the Express closed the gap in the series, narrowing Brampton’s lead to three-games-to-two.
Brampton pulled out the strong start last night, taking a 27-17 lead after 12 minutes and hung on to a 51-47 advantage at halftime.
The depth of the Express line-up showed it’s worth in the third when Kirk Williams Jr chipped in seven of his 16 points, helping Windsor overtake the A’s 39-33 in the frame. They possessed an 86-84 lead heading into the final quarter.
Jamarcus Ellis also posted six of his 10 for the game in the 3rd.
It’s also when Chris Commons took over, scoring 15 points in the fourth, part of his 26 for the game and, at one point, dropping eight straight Express points in nearly two minutes of play.
Windsor turned a 2-point advantage into a lead as high as 13 and cruised through the later half of the quarter to clinch the victory.
Quinnel Brown led the Express in scoring with a game high 29 points.
