Leicester Riders edged closer to becoming regular season BBL champions for the first time after they defeated Glasgow Rocks 84-71 at the John Sandford Centre.

Riders are now eight points ahead of second-placed Newcastle Eagles with six games left to play after Andrew Sullivan top-scored on the night with 24 points.

Long-time leaders Leicester will move to within one victory of securing the championship if they defeat Manchester Giants on Sunday.

In Saturday's other game, Worcester Wolves were beaten 91-82 at home by Belfast Giants.

David Watts scored 29 points and Stefan Gill chipped in with a further 24 to boost Belfast's chances of making the play-offs.
