Cheshire Phoenix made it back-to-back home victories as they came from behind late on to beat Plymouth Raiders in a 94-88 success.

An 18-point haul from Nix top scorer Jimario Rivers helped Ben Thomas' men overturn a four-point deficit at the midway point.

The hosts began the contest strongly with two three-pointers from Jordan Session contributing to a convincing opening quarter display, which ended 25-17 in their favour.

The Raiders came storming back in the second as the improve Donte Nicholas took control of the game, en route to a personal tally of 33 points, and steered the visitors to a 51-47 lead at the break.

Having made a habit of clawing back deficits late in last season's BBL Championship fixtures, the Nix upped the tempo in the third and outscored the Raiders 22-20 as Daniel Norl and Solomon Rolls-Tyson both nailed crucial three-pointers.

Now trailing by two, the Nix took full control in the final 10 minutes, hauling themselves level through Dijon Allen-Jordan's two-point lay-up before further three pointers from Norl and Louis Sayers helped restore their lead.

From there the sharp-shooting of Momcilo Latinovic and Rivers closed the game out for a deserved Cheshire victory, with the Raiders making the long trip home empty-handed.
