The Regular Season in NBL is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 3 rounds.

The most important game in the last round took place in Perth between third ranked New Zealand Breakers (13-9) and fourth ranked Perth Wildcats (14-9) on Saturday night. New Zealand Breakers were defeated by Perth Wildcats on the road 90-73. Perth Wildcats made 26-of-30 free shots (86.7 percent) during the game, while New Zealand Breakers only scored nine points from the stripe. 25 personal fouls committed by New Zealand Breakers helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. American guard Bryce Cotton (185-92, college: Providence, agency: Pensack Sports) fired 27 points and 6 rebounds (made all of his nine free throws !!!) for the winners. Cameroonian-American forward JP Tokoto (198-93, college: N.Carolina) chipped in 14 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Dominican-American point guard Edgar Sosa (190-88, college: Louisville) produced 10 points and 7 assists for lost side. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Defending champion moved-up to third place. New Zealand Breakers at the other side dropped to the fourth position with nine games lost. Perth Wildcats are looking forward to face league's second-placed Adelaide 36ers in Findon in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. New Zealand Breakers will play at home against Illawarra Hawks and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Adelaide 36ers (15-9) against seventh ranked Bullets (8-15) on Saturday night.
