London Lions travel to Durham Palatinates as the WBBL regular season comes to an end. 

Lions know that whatever the result they will finish third going into the end-of-season playoffs next week. 

Durham, however, go into the match knowing they will not be taking part but could finish the season in ninth with a win. 

Last time out

Lions lost only their fourth game this season last time out as they fell to Leicester Riders 84-80 in a tight encounter. 

Lions will be hoping Kennedy Leonard will carry over her form from that game into the match-up with Palatinates. 

The Lions guard contributed a superb double-double performance of 22 points and 10 assists as her side slipped to defeat. 

Durham go into the game off the back of two straight victories over Oaklands Wolves and Nottingham Wildcats. 

They will go into the game high on confidence after picking up their third and fourth victories of the season. 

Previous meeting

The two sides met back in March in the reverse fixture. Lions came out on top as they comfortably won 84-72.

Cassie Breen and Kennedy Leonard led the scoring for hosts as they finished with 22 and 20 points respectively. 

Claire Paxton had a good game for Palatinates, finishing with a double-double of 20 points and 12 rebounds.
