FCFP Pre-Game Inspection: Jan. 3 vs Magic

1. Take it from the Top

The Lightning will start out 2019 coming off of a big 105-103 victory over the Sudbury Five. A strong team effort that saw everyone chipping in, the Bolts were especially strong in the paint.

The Lightning will face the Moncton Magic in their first game of the New Year. Moncton sits at the top of the league standings with a 12-3 record.

2. Getting Settled In

Newcomer Alex Johnson is adjusting quite nicely into his new role with the Lightning. After scoring 3 points and adding 6 assists in his time limiting debut against the Windsor Express, Johnson continued to improve his game. In his latest game, Johnson scored 9 points along with 5 rebounds and 3 assists in 22 minutes of playing time. With the addition of Johnson, the Lightning will now have two strong options at the point guard position.
