Melbourne United win 2017 NBL Blitz - Sep 13, 2017

Travis Trice
CAIRNS have rained on Brisbane's parade with a 102-90 victory in Melbourne to deny the Bullets the 2017 NBL Blitz title. Brisbane were in the box seat to claim the pre-season tournament after convincing wins over Sydney and Adelaide. The Bullets were four points clear in the standings heading into the final day on Sunday with teams awarded three points for a win and a point for every quarter won over the four-day event. However, the previously winless Taipans played the role of spoilers to perfection with a sharpshooting 12-point win over Brisbane at Werribee. Brisbane led 24-23 at quarter-time but the Snakes put the foot down in the second quarter and took a 53-46 buffer into halftime. Cairns went on with the job in the third quarter and opened up a 12-point advantage by the last change. The win allowed Melbourne United and Illawarra to surge past Brisbane in the standings. United smashed Perth 93-67 while the Hawks easily beat Sydney 96-80 to finish on 14 points, half a point ahead of Brisbane in third. Melbourne were handed the Loggins-Bruton Cup as United had a superior for-and-against compared with Illawarra. The Bullets did not leave empty-handed as US import Travis Trice (183-PG-93, college: Michigan St.) won the Ray Borner Medal for the tournament MVP. Trice had 16 points, five assists and seven rebounds in the win over Sydney and backed it up with 12 points, four rebounds and four assists against the 36ers. The livewire point guard rounded out his Blitz tournament with 15 points, three rebounds and a steal against his old side yesterday. Bullets coach Andrej Lemanis said his side was 'exposed'' in defence against the Taipans who hit 62.5 per cent of their field-goal attempts. But overall, the tournament produced more positive than negatives with valuable court time for younger members of the squad and quality time together as a squad on the road. 'It's been good for us in terms of the stuff we are trying to grow. We got a lot of things done that we wanted,'' Lemanis said. Cairns captain Cameron Gliddon (196-G/F-89, college: Concordia Irvine) (24 points), Michael Carrera (196-SF-93, college: S.Carolina) (26 points, four rebounds), Mitchell McCarron (191-G-92, college: Metro St.) (13 points, three assists) and Alexander Loughton (206-F/C-83, college: ODU) (12 points, three rebounds) were the chief architects of the win for the Taipans. It was the first NBL pre-season tournament since 1987 where no team went undefeated and no team went without a victory, underlining how tight the competition should be in the 2017-18 regular season.
