Daniel
Johnson
The most important game in the last round took place in Findon between third ranked Kings (10-8) and seventh ranked Adelaide 36ers (6-11) on Sunday night. Kings were defeated by Adelaide 36ers on the road 64-82. The game without a history. Adelaide 36ers led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Strangely Kings outrebounded Adelaide 36ers 45-33 including 17 on the offensive glass. Center Daniel Johnson (212-88, college: Pepperdine) orchestrated the victory by scoring 24 points and 7 rebounds. The former international swingman Stephen Weigh (198-87) contributed with 11 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. American point guard Corin Henry (180-88, college: Tarleton St.) replied with 15 points and 4 assists for Kings. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Adelaide 36ers moved-up to fifth place. Kings at the other side keep the third position with eight games lost. Adelaide 36ers are looking forward to face league's leader New Zealand Breakers in Auckland in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Kings will play at home against Melbourne Tigers and are hoping to win this game.
Another interesting game for Cairns Taipans (5-10) which played in Gwynneville against higher ranked Wollongong Hawks (8-7). Eighth ranked Cairns Taipans had an easy win 94-81. Swingman Aaron Grabau (196-78) scored 22 points (was perfect 7-for-7 from the free throw line) to lead the charge for the winners and Shane Edwards chipped in 16 points and 9 rebounds during the contest. Cairns Taipans' coach Aaron Fearne allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. Power forward Larry Davidson (206-83, college: Boise St.) responded with a double-double by scoring 11 points and 10 rebounds. Cairns Taipans moved-up to seventh place. Wollongong Hawks lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fourth position with seven games lost. Cairns Taipans will play against league's second-placed Perth Wildcats on the road in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Wollongong Hawks will play against Townsville Crocodiles in Wulguru and hope to get back on the winning track.
NBL top team - New Zealand Breakers (13-3) added another victory to their record on Friday. This time they beat sixth ranked Townsville Crocodiles (5-11) in Wulguru 82-78. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Townsville Crocodiles. Cedric Jackson notched a double-double by scoring 10 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists to lead the effort. New Zealand Breakers' coach Andrej Lemanis used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. Even 29 points and 4 assists by Gary Ervin did not help to save the game for Townsville Crocodiles. New Zealand Breakers have an impressive five-game winning streak. Defending champion maintains first position with 13-3 record. Loser Townsville Crocodiles dropped to the bottom place with 11 games lost. New Zealand Breakers will meet Adelaide 36ers (#5) in the next round. Townsville Crocodiles will play against Wollongong Hawks in Gwynneville and hope to secure a win.

In the last game of round 14 Tigers were beaten by Wildcats on the road 73-58.


Wildcats - Tigers 73-58

Melbourne Tigers managed to win fourth quarter 21-7. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They dominated on the defensive end, holding Melbourne Tigers to just 6 points in second quarter. They outrebounded Melbourne Tigers 51-36 including a 20-9 advantage in offensive rebounds. The former international forward Shawn Redhage (203-81, college: Arizona St., agency: Warren Sports International) notched 18 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) to lead the effort and the former international power forward Matthew Knight (203-85, college: Loyola Mary) supported him with 14 points and 8 rebounds. Four Perth Wildcats players scored in double figures. Even 19 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists by American guard Jonny Flynn (183-89, college: Syracuse) did not help to save the game for Melbourne Tigers. His fellow American import power forward Seth Scott (208-81, college: Portland St.) added 9 points and 8 rebounds for the guests. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Perth Wildcats have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 11-4 record having just three points less than leader Breakers. Loser Melbourne Tigers keep the sixth place with nine games lost.
