Details: Friday 06 October, 7:30pm, Copper Box Arena, BBL Championship
Last meeting: Giants 88-96 Lions (Championship, March 2017)
Summary: The Lions are the very early table-toppers after their 2-0 opening weekend and they go up against Manchester on Friday night. Giants put up a fight in their opening defeat and are still without Jerelle Okoro (suspended) and Sam Lane (injury) as they seek a first win in the capital in two years.
Quote: “London have recruited ridiculously strong as they go 10 deep, while we have a good rotation of eight.” – Danny Byrne, Giants head coach.
“We have to see how we match up – they are a bit smaller in the frontcourt, but their guards are excellent and will be very tough.”
Stat: Moritz Lanegger handed out a BBL career-best of nine assists last weekend and goes up against his former side having enjoyed a short spell with Manchester last season.
Last season: Lions 3-0 Giants
