Kyle Johnson Drops Career-High & Franchise Record 51 Points

Great Britain guard Kyle Johnson had a record setting night on Saturday, scoring a career-high and London Lightning franchise record 51 points in Canada against the Moncton Miracles.

Johnson finished five points away from tying the NBL Canada record of 56, as he went 17 of 22 from the floor, including 6/8 from three and 11 of 13 at the line, whilst adding 3 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 steals in 37 minutes.

“Definitely a historic night for me personally, I’ve never had 50,” he said after the game.

“Just happy we were able to get the win. I felt it going today, Coach told me at the beginning to relax and just play free. My first couple shots went in and it was one of those nights, man.”

The 6’4″ Great Britain Olympian, unsurprisingly, picked up Central Division Player of the Week honours for his efforts.
