Sheffield Sharks held on for an 84-74 road win over Durham Wildcats to keep the pressure on at the top of the BBL.

A huge second quarter powered Sheffield into a 45-29 half-time lead and, although Durham rallied, the Sharks recorded their 15th win of the season.

Although they remain eight points from the summit in third place, they have two games in hand on leaders Worcester.

Also on Sunday, Cheshire Phoenix ensured National League club Bristol Academy Flyers' BBL Trophy run ended in the quarter-finals with an 85-56 victory at Northgate Arena.
