Shawn Long
There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with change at the leadership position and favorites losing the games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Round 12 in NBL means a new league leader. The biggest surprise took place in Auckland where host New Zealand Breakers (8-9) beat league's leader Perth Wildcats (12-7) 97-84 on Sunday evening. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Perth Wildcats. New Zealand Breakers dominated down low during the game scoring 54 of its points in the paint compared to Perth Wildcats' 34. The best player for the winners was American forward Shawn Long (208-93, college: La-Lafayette, agency: Pensack Sports) who scored 33 points (!!!) and 8 rebounds. American-Guamanian forward Tai Wesley (201-86, college: Utah St.) chipped in 20 points and 9 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field). At the other side the best for losing team was American guard Bryce Cotton (185-92, college: Providence, agency: Pensack Sports) who recorded 27 points. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. New Zealand Breakers moved-up to sixth place. Perth Wildcats at the other side dropped to the second position with seven games lost. They were replaced at the leadership position by Kings. Perth Wildcats will play next round against Cairns Taipans trying to make it back to the top of the standings. New Zealand Breakers will try to continue on its current victory against first ranked Kings in Sydney.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Kings (12-6) against seventh ranked Illawarra Hawks (8-10) on Saturday night. Visiting Kings were defeated by Illawarra Hawks in a tough game in Gwynneville 71-78. It was a good game for American forward Brian Conklin (201-89, college: St.Louis) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 12 rebounds. Tim Coenraad contributed with 18 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Illawarra Hawks' coach Rob Beveridge allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. The former international center Andrew Bogut (213-84, college: Utah) replied with 8 points, 19 rebounds, 6 assists and 4 blocks for Kings. Illawarra Hawks maintains seventh position with 8-10 record. Kings at the other side still keep top place with six games lost. Illawarra Hawks will again play against league's leader Kings in Sydney in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Kings will play at home against New Zealand Breakers and hope to get back on the winning track.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked United (11-7) against fourth ranked Bullets (10-9) on Sunday night. Visiting United was defeated by Bullets in a tough game in Brisbane 86-95. Worth to mention a great performance of Matt Hodgson who helped to win the game recording 17 points and 8 rebounds. The best for the losing side was Casper Ware with 29 points and 5 assists. Both coaches tested many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Bullets maintains fourth position with 10-9 record. United lost fourth consecutive game. Defending champion dropped to the third place with seven games lost. Bullets will meet Adelaide 36ers (#5) in the next round. United will play against Cairns Taipans and hope to secure a win.
We should not miss the game where eighth ranked Cairns Taipans (2-15) against higher ranked Bullets (10-9) where host Cairns Taipans rolled over their opponents by twenty nine points 109-80. The winners were led by Devon Hall who scored that evening 24 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Cairns Taipans maintains eighth position with 2-15 record. Bullets at the other side keep the fourth place with nine games lost. Cairns Taipans' next round opponent will be higher ranked United (#3) in Melbourne and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Bullets will play on the road against Adelaide 36ers in Findon and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
And finally the game worth to mention about is the one where seventh ranked New Zealand Breakers (8-9) won against one of their biggest challengers Adelaide 36ers (9-9) on the road by 8 points 104-96 on Friday evening. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Adelaide 36ers. The best player for the winners was Shawn Long who had a double-double by scoring 28 points and 18 rebounds. Adelaide 36ers' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. New Zealand Breakers moved-up to sixth place. Loser Adelaide 36ers dropped to the fifth position with nine games lost. New Zealand Breakers will face league's leader Kings in Sydney in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Adelaide 36ers will play at home against Bullets (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of round 12 Kings defeated Taipans in Sydney 86-82.



Taipans - Bullets 109-80

We should not miss the game where eighth ranked Cairns Taipans (2-15) against higher ranked Bullets (10-9) where host Cairns Taipans rolled over their opponents by twenty nine points 109-80. Cairns Taipans outrebounded Bullets 34-18 including a 26-13 advantage in defensive rebounds. They shot the lights out from three nailing 14 long-distance shots on high 58.3 percentage.

Four Cairns Taipans players scored in double figures. Even 27 points and 4 assists (went 7 for 7 at the free throw line) by American swingman Lamar Patterson (196-91, college: Pittsburgh, agency: Pensack Sports) did not help to save the game for Bullets. International center Matt Hodgson (211-91, college: St.Mary's, CA) added 13 points and 7 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Cairns Taipans maintains eighth position with 2-15 record. Bullets at the other side keep the fourth place with nine games lost. Cairns Taipans' next round opponent will be higher ranked United (#3) in Melbourne and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
