The Giants fell to their fourth defeat to the Rocks this season with an underwhelming performance in Glasgow.
The Scottish outfit hold the Indian sign over Danny Byrne’s men at the moment and after losses at home in the league and in both legs of the BBL Cup semi-final, they fell short again.
It was a slow start for both teams, particularly the Giants who only had 13 on the board at the end of the first quarter and 28 at the half. By that point they were 11 points down and it was a hard battle to close the gap.
The Rocks pushed their lead out to 15 in third period after the Giants had got as close as seven behind.

And the fourth quarter was a similar picture, with the Giants threatening to come alive only for Glasgow to edge away again.
Giants big man Willie Clayton had his customary double double with 21 points and 11 rebounds and Mike McCall (18), Callum Jones (10) and Tory Butler (10) were also in double figures.
Kenny Carpenter led the way for the Rocks with 15.
The Giants get the opportunity to bounce straight back and reignite their Play-off push when Leicester Riders visit George H Carnall on Sunday (5pm).
