Hurricanes beat Storm at home for second straight

HALIFAX, N.S. — Late game heroics from Malcolm Duvivier and Terry Thomas propelled the Hurricanes to their second-straight victory on Monday night at Scotiabank Centre as they beat the Island Storm 117-110.

The Hurricanes got off to a fast start against the Storm, scoring 64 points in the first half, led by a 14-point second quarter from Terry Thomas.

The Storm closed the gap in the second half, and traded leads with the Hurricanes throughout the fourth quarter.

Thomas, who rejoined the Hurricanes' starting lineup Wednesday, kept the Hurricanes in it, finishing with a game-high 36 points on 14-23 shooting and hitting 7-9 from the free-throw line, to go with eight rebounds.

Duvivier provided the daggers to seal the seven-point victory for Halifax, hitting back-to-back threes and a critical steal in the final minute. He finished with 12 points off the bench.

Tyler Thornton and Joel Kindred each scored 15 points in the victory, while Chadrack Lufile and Mike Poole each contributed 14 points.

The Hurricanes improve to 21-15 as the regular season winds down. Ahead of the Hurricanes playoff campaign, the team recently released Darin Mency, a mid-season addition to the team.

The Hurricanes return to Scotiabank Centre on Wednesday night to play the visiting Windsor Express, who blew out the Hurricanes earlier this month in Windsor, Ontario.

Tickets for that game are available at the Ticket Atlantic Box Office or online.
