Daniel
Johnson
There were only 2 rounds played so far and it's still very beginning of the Regular Season in NBL. There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Kings (2-1) in Findon on Friday night. Visitors were defeated by Adelaide 36ers (1-3) 106-101. Adelaide 36ers shot the lights out from three sinking 15 long-distance shots on high 60.0 percentage. The former international power forward Daniel Johnson (212-88, college: Pepperdine) scored 20 points and 9 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Dominican point guard Adris De-Leon (180-84, college: E.Washington) chipped in 21 points and 6 assists during the contest. The former international center Andrew Bogut (213-84, college: Utah) responded with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 11 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). Kings' coach Andrew Gaze rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Adelaide 36ers are looking forward to face New Zealand Breakers (#7) in Auckland in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Kings will play at home against Cairns Taipans (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very significant was Kings' (#4) 23-point road victory against New Zealand Breakers 101-78. The former international center Andrew Bogut (213-84, college: Utah) notched 13 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists to lead the effort and Kevin Lisch supported him with 19 points and 5 rebounds. Even 22 points by American-Fijian forward Tai Wesley (201-86, college: Utah St.) did not help to save the game for New Zealand Breakers. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Kings will play against Cairns Taipans (#4) at home in the next round. New Zealand Breakers will play against Adelaide 36ers to get more than just one victory in their record.
A very close game took place in Melbourne between United and Adelaide 36ers. United (2-1) got a very close home victory over Adelaide 36ers (1-3). United managed to escape with a 3-point win 75-72 on Sunday evening. The best player for the winners was Josh Boone who had a double-double by scoring 15 points and 16 rebounds. Nathan Sobey produced 19 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists for the guests. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. United will meet at home Illawarra Hawks (#6) in the next round. Adelaide 36ers will play against New Zealand Breakers in Auckland and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a home loss of Cairns Taipans (1-1) against Illawarra Hawks (1-2) on Sunday night. Host Cairns Taipans were defeated by Illawarra Hawks in Cairns 104-93. Todd Blanchfield orchestrated the victory by scoring 32 points and 7 rebounds. Cairns Taipans' coach tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Illawarra Hawks' next round opponent will be United (#3) in Melbourne and it may be quite challenging game. Cairns Taipans will play on the road against Kings in Sydney and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Perth. host Perth Wildcats (3-0) defeated Bullets (1-2) 88-73. Bryce Cotton scored 28 points and 4 assists to lead the charge for the winners. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Perth Wildcats will face United (#3) in Melbourne in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Bullets will play on the road against Illawarra Hawks in Gwynneville and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
