Nick Kay
There were only 2 rounds played so far and it's still very beginning of the Regular Season in NBL. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Saints smashed Huskies in Wellington 87-60. The best player for the winners was Australian power forward Nick Kay (206-92, college: MSU Denver) who scored 20 points and 8 rebounds. International guard Shea Ili (184-92) chipped in 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Saints' coach felt very confident that he used 10 players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. American guard Tre Nichols (180-89, college: Boise St., agency: SDJ Sports) produced 18 points for the guests. Huskies will play next round against Rangers trying to get back on the winning streak. Saints will try to continue on its current victory against Rams in Christchurch.
The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Giants (1-1) in Stoke. Hosts were defeated by Sharks (2-0) 100-91. Forward Hyrum Harris (198-96, college: Umpqua CC) orchestrated the victory by scoring 18 points and 7 rebounds. Mitchell McCarron contributed with 20 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Australian forward Rhys Vague (206-96) replied with 23 points and 8 rebounds for Giants. Giants' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Sharks will play against Saints in Wellington in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Giants will play at home against Jets (#9) to get more than just one victory in their record.
An interesting game was played in Auckland where Rams (#5) crushed host Rangers (#6) with 23-point difference 91-68 on Saturday evening. Mike Karena scored 36 points (!!!) and 9 rebounds (on 18-of-21 shooting from the field) to lead the charge for the winners. Venkatesha Jois responded with 17 points and 8 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. Rams will meet at home Saints in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Rangers will play against Huskies (#6) in Hobart and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
A very interesting game took place in Palmerston North. It ended with only one-point home defeat of Jets (0-2) to Huskies (1-2) 100-99 on Thursday evening. Craig Moller notched a double-double by scoring 27 points and 17 rebounds to lead the effort. Jets' coach tried various players' combinations and tested in total eleven players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Huskies' next round opponent will be Rangers (#7) in Auckland. Jets will play on the road against Giants in Stoke and hope to win that game.
The game in New Plymouth supposed to be also quite interesting. Rams (2-1) played at the court of Mountain Airs (0-2). Rams smashed Mountain Airs 107-74 on Monday. The best player for the winners was Emmett Naar who scored 15 points and 5 assists (on 6-of-7 shooting from the field). Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Rams will face Saints in Wellington in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Mountain Airs will play at home against Hawks (#3) and hope to win that game.

In the last game of round 2 Huskies were defeated by Hawks in Tamatea 105-95.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Giants (1-1) in Stoke. Hosts were defeated by Sharks (2-0) 100-91. Sharks shot 62.9 percent from the field.

Australian forward Rhys Vague (206-96) replied with 23 points and 8 rebounds and Australian swingman Daniel Grida (195-98) added 20 points and 7 rebounds in the effort for Giants. Five Sharks and four Giants players scored in double figures. Giants' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Sharks will play against Saints in Wellington in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Giants will play at home against Jets (#9) to get more than just one victory in their record.
