There were just five rounds played in Regular Season of NBL and we can clearly see which teams will fight for top positions and which will try to avoid bottom places.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Perth Wildcats (3-1) in Gwynneville on Sunday night. Visitors were rolled over by Wollongong Hawks (5-0) 100-67. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Perth Wildcats. The game without a history. Wollongong Hawks led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Dominican guard Adris Deleon (180-84, college: E.Washington) orchestrated the victory by scoring 26 points (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line). The former international power forward Oscar Forman (205-82) contributed with 21 points for the winners. The former international power forward Matthew Knight (204-85, college: Loyola Mary) answered with 18 points and 6 rebounds for Perth Wildcats. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Undefeated Wollongong Hawks have an impressive series of five victories in a row. They maintain first place with 5-0 record. Perth Wildcats at the other side keep the third position with one game lost. Wollongong Hawks are looking forward to face Kings (#6) in Sydney in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Perth Wildcats will play on the road against Adelaide 36ers in Findon and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Auckland. Third ranked New Zealand Breakers (4-1) saved a 3-point victory at home edging 5th ranked Kings (3-4) 79-76 on Friday evening. American guard Cedric Jackson (191-86, college: Cleveland St.) stepped up and scored 22 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals for the winners and Alex Pledger chipped in 16 points and 10 rebounds. Swingman Ben Madgen (193-85, college: Augusta St.) responded with 30 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. The victory was the fourth consecutive win for New Zealand Breakers. Defending champion moved-up to second place. Kings at the other side dropped to the sixth position with four games lost. New Zealand Breakers will play against Cairns Taipans (#5) on the road in the next round. Kings will play against the league's leader Wollongong Hawks in Gwynneville and hope to get back on the winning track.
Melbourne Tigers' fans can celebrate the first win of their team after four consecutive loses. They used home court advantage to defeat Townsville Crocodiles (0-7) 91-66 on Sunday. Adam Ballinger nailed 23 points and 7 rebounds for the winning side. Peter Crawford came up with 15 points and 7 rebounds for Townsville Crocodiles in the defeat. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Melbourne Tigers maintains seventh place with 1-4 record. It was Townsville Crocodiles' seventh loss in a row. They still closes the standings with seven games lost. Melbourne Tigers will meet at home higher ranked Adelaide 36ers (#4) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Townsville Crocodiles will play against the league's second-placed New Zealand Breakers (#2) and will have a slim chance for a victory.
Bottom-ranked Townsville Crocodiles is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their seventh consecutive match to sixth ranked Cairns Taipans (3-3) 92-80. The best player for the winners was Jamar Wilson who scored 25 points and 9 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Cairns Taipans moved-up to fifth place. Townsville Crocodiles lost their seventh game in a row. They still closes the standings with seven games lost. Cairns Taipans' next round opponent will be league's second-placed New Zealand Breakers in Auckland and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Townsville Crocodiles will play at home against the league's second-placed New Zealand Breakers (#2) in Auckland and hope to get finally their first victory.

In the last game of round 5 36ers beat Kings on the road 88-81.

Kings - 36ers 81-88

We could consider it a predictable result in the game between close teams when sixth ranked Adelaide 36ers (3-2) beat 5th ranked Kings (3-4) in Sydney 88-81.
