Damon Heuir
The Regular Season in NBL just ended. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Round 13 most important game was a victory of Giants over their biggest opponent Sharks 103-87 on Sunday night. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Sharks. It was a key game for the second position in the league. Giants made 16-of-20 free shots (80.0 percent) during the game. Worth to mention a great performance of Australian guard Damon Heuir (189-91, college: S.Utah) who helped to win the game recording 30 points and 6 assists. The former international forward Finn Delany (198-95, college: SW Baptist) contributed with 21 points and 8 rebounds for the winners. American forward Orlando Coleman (196-92, college: Texas Southern) answered with 25 points and 8 rebounds for Sharks. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Giants (14-4) moved-up to second place. Sharks at the other side dropped to the third position with five games lost.
Another interesting game for Rangers (4-14) which played in Palmerston North against 6th ranked Jets (3-15). Seventh ranked Rangers had an easy win 109-99. Forward Dominique Kelman-Poto (201, college: Adelphi) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 31 points and 15 rebounds for the winners and Marcel Jones chipped in 34 points (!!!) and 9 rebounds. At the losing side American guard Daishon Knight (185-91, college: Illinois St.) responded with 27 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Jets' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Rangers moved-up to sixth place. Newly promoted Jets dropped to the seventh position with 15 games lost. They share it with Taranaki MA.
An interesting game for Saints (15-3) which hosted in Wellington 3rd placed Giants (14-4). First ranked Saints had an easy win 91-75. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Shea Ili nailed 18 points, 5 assists and 5 steals for the winning side. Kyle Adnam came up with 19 points for Giants in the defeat. Giants' coach tested ten players seeing no chance for a win. Defending champion maintains first place with 15-3 record. Loser Giants dropped to the second position with four games lost.
The game in Christchurch was also worth to mention about. Fourth ranked Hawks (12-6) played at the court of 5th ranked Rams (8-10). Hawks managed to secure a 9-point victory 85-76. Angus Brandt fired a double-double by scoring 14 points and 17 rebounds for the winners. Hawks have an impressive series of six victories in a row. They maintain fourth place with 12-6 record.

The game in New Plymouth supposed to be also quite interesting. Second ranked Sharks (13-5) played at the court of 8th ranked Mountain Airs (3-15). Sharks smashed Mountain Airs 118-78 on Friday. It was a very good performance for Orlando Coleman who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 23 points and 12 rebounds. Despite that victory Sharks went down to third position due to points difference. Mountain Airs lost their seventh game in a row. They stay at the bottom place with 15 games lost.
