Hurricanes 119 Miracles 97 @ Scotiabank Centre
The Halifax Hurricanes returned to the friendly confines of the Scotiabank Centre to host the Moncton Miracles fresh off their Ontario road trip in which they went 2-1. An under manned Miracles squad that only dressed were looking to take advantage of a potentially road weary team who were a day removed from their three game road trip in which they competed in three games in four days. Halifax led the entire game and owned the fourth quarter outscoring Moncton 36-23 winning with a final score 119-97 and hand the Miracles their second loss in a row and keeps them winless in Halifax in four attempts. Mike Poole led the Hurricanes in scoring with 21 points on 10-13 shooting from the field adding 7 rebounds. Melvin Johnson III led all scorers with 30 points.

Hurricanes 101 Miracles 93 @ Moncton Coliseum
The Halifax Hurricanes defeated the Moncton Miracles 101-93 at Moncton Coliseum on Thursday night, ending the home team's five-game win streak. Antoine Mason scored 24 points to tie his season-high and lead all players, while Mike Poole added 20 points for the Hurricanes, who won for the seventh time in the last nine games and improved their season mark to 24-7, tops in the Atlantic Division.
The Miracles got 22 points from Malik Story and a double-double from Tim Mitchell, who scored 15 and pulled down a game-best 11 boards. Halifax was 13/26 from the outside, helping to overcome an unusually sloppy outing in which the Hurricanes turned the ball over 24 times, leading to 25 Moncton points. Moncton led 26-25 after the first quarter, but fell behind 53-48 at the break and trailed by at least five for the entire second half.

Hurricanes 135 Miracles 110 @ Scotiabank Centre
The Halifax Hurricanes played their final home game of the 2016-2017 NBL Canada season against Atlantic Conference rivals the Moncton Miracles at the Scotiabank Centre in Downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia on Sunday afternoon. Halifax was looking to get back into the win column after dropping a 115-114 nail biter to the Island Storm in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Both teams started the game playing a high tempo offense, putting up shots early and often. The game saw eight total three-point attempts from the two teams in the first six minutes of the game. Forward CJ Washington paced the Hurricanes early, scoring 12 of Halifax’s 40 first quarter on 5-5 shooting. The Canes finished the quarter with a 40-26 lead. The fast paced play carried on into the second quarter with both teams cooling off only slightly. The Hurricanes finished the first half with a 70-51 lead behind 64% shooting from the field. Moncton refused to go away in the second half, however, outscoring the Hurricanes 29-21 in the third quarter. After scoring only 18 points in the paint in the whole first half, the Miracles were able to virtually match that in the third quarter with 16. However, the Miracles were unable to keep pace with the Hurricanes in the fourth quarter, getting outscored 39-26. The Hurricanes finished the game with a convincing 135-110 victory at home.
Washington led Halifax with a 31 points and 11 rebounds, registering his third straight double-double. Halifax Forward Billy White also finished with a double-double scoring 22 points and grabbing 11 rebounds. Point Guard Cliff Clinkscales chipped in with 9 assists and Hurricanes fan favourite Joey Haywood added 14 points in 18 minutes off the bench. The Miracles top scorers on the night were Forward Tydran Beatty and Guard Melvin Johnson III with 20 points each. Moncton also got a big contribution from Guard Malik Story with 19 points.
