London Lions made it two wins from two in the BBL Championship after an impressive performance saw them beat Leeds Force 99-60.

The visitors were unable to emulate their memorable win at the Copper Box Arena back in February as the Lions never looked back from an early 10-0 burst.

Demond Watt went seven-of-eight in the paint for his 19 points and also added nine rebounds in an efficient 21-minute display. Four other players hit double figures as Lions’ Head Coach Nigel Lloyd was able to spread minutes through his roster.

By half-time, the Lions were already up by 19 and continued to rack up points when play resumed, though they narrowly missed out on the century mark.

GB international Zak Wells produced another battling effort as he finished with 23 points along with seven rebounds and four assists. Leeds join fellow newcomers from last year, Bristol, at the bottom with an 0-2 record.
