Mitchell
McCarron
There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in NBL. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked United as it allowed them to take a leadership position. United defeated 7th ranked New Zealand Breakers in Melbourne 111-102. United made 21-of-27 free shots (77.8 percent) during the game. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 26 assists. 25 personal fouls committed by New Zealand Breakers helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of international guard Mitchell McCarron (191-92, college: MSU Denver) who helped to win the game recording 25 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists. American forward DJ Kennedy (198-89, college: St.John's) contributed with 23 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. United's coach Dean Vickerman used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American forward Shawn Long (208-93, college: La-Lafayette, agency: Pensack Sports) replied with a double-double by scoring 28 points, 15 rebounds and 6 assists for New Zealand Breakers. United have a solid four-game winning streak. As mentioned above they are alone now at the top position. New Zealand Breakers at the other side keep the seventh place with 14 games lost. New Zealand Breakers will play next round against Illawarra Hawks trying to get back on the winning streak. United will try to continue on its current victory against fourth ranked Adelaide 36ers in Findon.
Important game to mention about took place in Brisbane. Third ranked Kings (16-9) saved a 2-point victory on the road edging 5th ranked Bullets (12-13) 95-93 on Friday evening. Worth to mention a great performance of Ukrainian-American point guard Jerome Randle (175-87, college: California) who helped to win the game recording 14 points and 7 assists and Brad Newley who added 14 points and 4 assists during the contest. Kings' coach Andrew Gaze allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. At the losing side American swingman Lamar Patterson (196-91, college: Pittsburgh, agency: Pensack Sports) responded with a double-double by scoring 12 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists. Kings moved-up to second place, which they share with Wildcats. Bullets lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the fifth position with 13 games lost. They share it with Hawks. Kings will play against league's leader United in Melbourne in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week.

The winners were led by Bryce Cotton who scored that evening 27 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. Even 20 points and 8 rebounds by Brian Conklin did not help to save the game for Illawarra Hawks. Both coaches used bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Perth Wildcats have a solid four-game winning streak. Despite that victory Perth Wildcats went down to second position due to points difference, which they share with Kings. Loser Illawarra Hawks dropped to the fifth place with 13 games lost.

United's next round opponent will be Adelaide 36ers (#4) in Findon. New Zealand Breakers will play on the road against Illawarra Hawks in Gwynneville and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game in Cairns was also quite interesting. Fifth ranked Adelaide 36ers (13-12) played at the court of 8th ranked Cairns Taipans (4-21). Adelaide 36ers managed to secure a 9-point victory 100-91 on Saturday. It was a very good performance for Daniel Johnson who helped to win the game recording 24 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists.
