Gliddon
Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most exciting game of round 4 in the NBL took place in Findon. This derby game ended with only three-point home defeat of 7th ranked Adelaide 36ers (2-6) to fourth ranked Bullets (4-3) 93-90 on Sunday evening. Worth to mention a great performance of international swingman Cameron Gliddon (197-89, college: Concordia Irvine) who helped to win the game recording 30 points. International center Matt Hodgson (211-91, college: St.Mary's, CA) contributed with 15 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. The former international power forward Daniel Johnson (212-88, college: Pepperdine) replied with 19 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists for Adelaide 36ers. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Bullets maintains fourth position with 4-3 record. Adelaide 36ers lost third consecutive game. They keep the seventh place with six games lost. Bullets are looking forward to face New Zealand Breakers (#5) in Auckland in the next round. Adelaide 36ers will play at home against Kings and are hoping to prove to their fans that they can break losing series.
An interesting game for United (5-2) which hosted in Melbourne their biggest opponent Kings (4-2). Third ranked United managed to get a 7-point victory 77-70. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Kings. It was a key game for the second position in the league. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward DJ Kennedy (198-89, college: St.John's) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 24 points and 10 rebounds and Mitchell McCarron who added 14 points and 9 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side the former international center Andrew Bogut (213-84, college: Utah) responded with 8 points and 15 rebounds. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. United have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion moved-up to second place. Kings at the other side dropped to the third position with two games lost. United will play against bottom-ranked Cairns Taipans (#8) at home in the next round where they are favorite. Kings will play against Adelaide 36ers (#7) in Findon and hope to get back on the winning track.
NBL top team - Perth Wildcats (5-1) managed to deliver another win on Saturday. This time they beat fifth ranked New Zealand Breakers (2-3) 92-78. The winners were led by Bryce Cotton who scored that evening 23 points and 9 rebounds. Even 22 points and 6 assists by Tai Wesley did not help to save the game for New Zealand Breakers. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. Perth Wildcats maintains first position with 5-1 record. Loser New Zealand Breakers keep the fifth place with three games lost. Perth Wildcats will meet Illawarra Hawks (#6) in the next round where they are favorite. New Zealand Breakers will play against Bullets in Brisbane and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Cairns was also worth to mention about. Third ranked United (5-2) played at the court of 8th ranked Cairns Taipans (1-4). United defeated Cairns Taipans 98-85. Casper Ware fired 32 points for the winners. United's coach Dean Vickerman allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. United have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion moved-up to second place. Cairns Taipans lost fourth consecutive game. They stay at the bottom position with four games lost. United's next round opponent will be Illawarra Hawks (#6) in Gwynneville. Cairns Taipans will play again on the road against the league's second-placed United in Melbourne and hope to win that game.

In the last two games of round 4 36ers were beaten by Bullets on the road 108-98. Kings won against Hawks on its own court 86-79.



Bullets - 36ers 108-98

No shocking result in a game when fourth ranked Bullets (4-3) beat 7th ranked Adelaide 36ers (2-6) in Brisbane 108-98. Bullets made 17-of-20 charity shots (85.0 percent) during the game. They also forced 21 Adelaide 36ers turnovers. Strangely Adelaide 36ers outrebounded Bullets 36-21 including a 27-15 advantage in defensive rebounds. Their players were unselfish on offense dishing 22 assists. New Zealand swingman Reuben Te-Rangi (198-94) fired 29 points for the winners. The former international guard Adam Gibson (188-86) chipped in 16 points (perfect from the field making all six shots). Five Bullets players scored in double figures.
