Wildcats def. Crocs - Jan 25, 2013

Matthew
Knight
The unlikeliest of three-point heroes Matthew Knight (203-F/C-85, college: Loyola Mary) hit a massive triple to help the Perth Wildcats escape with a 62-59 win over the Townsville Crocs at the Perth Arena on Friday night.

The Crocs led by as much as 10 during the third quarter and then three triples in the last quarter from Michael Cedar had them still in front with under a minute to go.

Reigning MVP Kevin Lisch hit two threes - including a staggering shake-and-bake that sent Perter Crawford to the floor - to firstly keep Perth close and then hit the front, but then it was Knight who nailed his first triple of the season with 35 seconds to go that ultimately iced the Cats win.

Lisch finished with 17 points but shot 6-of-19 from the field and 3-of-10 from three-point range but nailed the big buckets when it counted. Knight added 15 points and eight rebounds and Shawn Redhage 10 points in his 250th NBL match.

It was a brave effort from the Crocs with Gary Ervin scoring 12 points to go with nine assists, and Todd Blanchfield, Crawford (14 rebounds), Cedar and Luke Nevill all scoring 11 points.

Despite starting the season 0-10, the Crocs now have lost just twice now in the eight games since and with the Sydney Kings (10-10) and Wollongong Hawks (8-9) struggling in third and fourth positions, Townsville has claims on being the third best team in the league.

The Wildcats improve to 13-4 and it gives them the perfect lead into Thursday's clash with the New Zealand Breakers.

It was a dour first half with the opening quarter ending tied at 12, and the Wildcats didn't improve much in the second period backing up shooting 5-of-18 from the field in the second after 4-of-16 in the first.

While the Crocs improved to shoot 8-of-15 in the second quarter, turnovers and bail out foul calls at the other end meant they only led 31-29 at half-time.

The Crocs started better in the second half with Blanchfield knocking down two triples and an alley-oop and Crawford another long bomb to help them to a double-digit lead.

The Cats whittled that down to just three by three quarter-time and things heated up in the last quarter with both teams nailing big threes, but it was the home side just getting up in the end.
