Liege Rally To Stay Unbeaten

30 November 2010

Belgacom Liege came from behind in the final five minutes to edge Norrkoping Dolphins 94-92 and stay perfect in EuroChallenge Group D.

The Dolphins enjoyed an 81-76 edge with 4:53 to go, but lay-ups from Leonard Matela and Cedric Bozeman slashed the gap to one before Matela's jump-shot put the visitors in front with 3:35 to go.

Matela then hit another jump-shot that made it 84-81, but Mikael Lindqvist immediately hit back with a three-pointer to tie it.

Matela's jump-shot gave Liege the edge, but Andrew Mitchell hit a three to put the hosts back in front, 87-86.

The teams traded baskets, with the Dolphins moving three points in front on Fred Drains' jump-shot with 46 seconds left.

Taylor Griffin went to the line and made a pair of free throws to get Liege back to within one, and then added a jump-shot that put them in front 93-92 with five ticks left.

Joakim Kjellborn had a chance to put the Dolphins back in front, but his jump-shot was off target, and Guy Muya sealed the win by adding a free throw with one second left.

Matela and Michael Jenkins led Liege with 18 points each, while Andrija Stipanovic added 16 and Griffin finished with 12.

Mitchell poured in 25 points for the Dolphins, while Kjellborn had 21, Conor Grace 14, Povilas Sakinis 12 and Lindqvist 10.
