Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most exciting game of round 6 in the NBL took place in Hobart. This derby game ended with only two-point defeat on the road of 5th ranked Giants (3-5) to sixth ranked Huskies (3-4) 93-91 in the game for the fifth place. Huskies made 17-of-22 free shots (77.3 percent) during the game. It was a good game for naturalized American forward Marcel Jones (203-85, college: Oregon St.) who led his team to a victory with 20 points and 9 rebounds. Forward Craig Moller (203-94, agency: MKP Management) contributed with 20 points and 10 rebounds for the winners. Australian forward Rhys Vague (206-96) replied with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 14 rebounds for Giants. Huskies moved-up to fifth place. Giants lost fourth consecutive game. They dropped to the sixth position with five games lost. Huskies are looking forward to face Jets (#8) in Palmerston North in the next round. Giants will play on the road against Mountain Airs in New Plymouth and are hoping to win this game.
An interesting game for Rams (5-2) which hosted in Christchurch their close opponent Sharks (5-4). Fourth ranked Rams managed to get a 14-point victory 89-75. Naturalized Australian guard Tony Tolovae (196-92) scored 15 points and 6 rebounds to lead the charge for the winners and Emmett Naar chipped in 14 points and 5 rebounds during the contest. Rams' coach used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The best for the losing side was the former international center Alex Pledger (215-87, college: Belm.Abbey) with 16 points and 9 rebounds. Rams have a solid three-game winning streak. They moved-up to third place. Defending champion Sharks keep the fourth position with four games lost. Rams will play against Jets (#8) in Palmerston North in the next round where they are favorite.

Even 16 points and 6 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field) by Dominique Kelman-Poto did not help to save the game for Sharks. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games.
