Dragons are blasted off court by Rockets
Bradford Dragons made the long journey down to Reading Rockets on Sunday afternoon, for their latest National Basketball League division one fixture, but came home empty handed, following a disappointing 95-74 defeat.
The Rockets are one of the longest established teams in the division, and have won an impressive amount of silverware over the years - including three league and four play-off championships, as well as being three times National Cup and five times National Trophy winners. Going into the game they had a win record of three from four, for this season, and were sitting nicely within the early season leading pack.
Meanwhile, Bradford had a win ratio of two from three, playing one game less, having enjoyed the previous weekend off, following London Lituanica’s decision to withdraw from the league.
