Bristol Flyers bounced back from defeat on Friday night to beat Surrey Scorchers 71-64 on the road in the BBL Cup South Group on Saturday.

The visitors flew out of the blocks, unbelievably leading 15-0 approaching four minutes as Raphell Thomas-Edwards scored six points in a row.

But they had to see off a characteristic Scorchers comeback, as the hosts were back within four in the fourth quarter.

Flyers were led through by Gentrey Thomas, who finished with 17 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and three steals.
