Games Behind, NBL18, WNBL17


BY now, you've probably read a few differing versions of the many scenarios which still could play out in the last round of the NBL regular season and over the WNBL's last two.

Suffice to say that, yet again, the North American-style of "games behind" championship ladders give a truer indication of where everyone sits as this incredible final round of the regular season unfolds.

Have no doubt, head-to-heads WILL be required to split probably more than a few teams so here is how your team looks in that situation.

ADELAIDE: V Brisbane 3-1, +36 Series Won. V Cairns 2-0, +29. Two to go and points difference is strong. V Illawarra 1-3, -16. Series Lost.  V Melbourne 2-2, -7. Series Lost. V NZ 2-2, +1. Series Won. V Perth 3-1, +18. Series Won. V Sydney 4-0, +29. Series Won.

BRISBANE: V Adelaide 1-3, -36. Series Lost. V Cairns 2-2, +6. Series Won. V Illawarra 0-3, -21. Series Lost regardless of 4th game. V Melbourne 2-2, -19. Series Lost. V NZ 1-3, -19. Series Lost. V Perth 2-2, -13. Series Lost. V Sydney 2-2, +5. Series Won.

CAIRNS: V Adelaide 0-2, -29. Backs to the wall situation. V Brisbane 2-2, -6. Series Lost. V Illawarra 3-1, +21. Series Won. V Melbourne 1-3, -5. Series Lost. V NZ 4-0, +33. Series Won. V Perth 2-2, -6. Series Lost. V Sydney 1-3, -17. Series Lost.

ILLAWARRA: V Adelaide 3-1, +16. Series Won. V Brisbane 3-0, +21. Series Won, regardless of 4th game. V Cairns 1-3, -21. Series Lost. V Melbourne 2-2, +9. Series Won. V NZ 2-2, +11. Series Won. V Perth 2-2, -6. Series Lost. V Sydney 1-3, -15. Series Lost.

MELBOURNE: V Adelaide 2-2, +7. Series Won. V Brisbane 2-2, +19. Series Won. V Cairns 3-1, +5. Series Won. V Illawarra 2-2, -9. Series Lost. V NZ 1-2, +13. Series Pending. V Perth 0-3, -8. Series Lost, regardless of last game. V Sydney 3-1, +7. Series Won.

NEW ZEALAND: V Adelaide 2-2, -1. Series Lost. V Brisbane 3-1, +19. Series Won. V Cairns 0-4, -33. Series Lost. V Illawarra 2-2, -11. Series Lost. V Melbourne 2-1, -13. A win clinches it. V Perth 3-1, +15. Series Won. V Sydney 1-3, -28. Series Lost.

PERTH: V Adelaide 1-3, -18. Series Lost. V Brisbane 2-2, +13. Series Won. V Cairns 2-2, +6. Series Won. V Illawarra 2-2, +6. Series Won. V Melbourne 3-0, +8. Series Won, regardless of last game. V NZ 1-3, -15. Series Lost. V Sydney 2-1, +8. Kings need a 9-point win in Perth to steal this.

SYDNEY: V Adelaide 0-4, -29. Series Lost. V Brisbane 2-2, -5. Series Lost. V Cairns 3-1, +17. Series Won. V Illawarra 3-1, +15. Series Won. V Melbourne 1-3, -7. Series Lost. V NZ 3-1, +28. Series Won. V Perth 1-2, -8. Winning by nine in Perth possibly means playoffs.

THE WNBL quest for the Final Four should see one of its protagonists - Canberra or Bendigo - drop out of the race this week when they battle it out in a "mini final".

Head-to-heads also may be important again here too so here they are between the six teams still in the Final Four race, with apologies to Melbourne and Adelaide, who are not in the playoff picture.

They DO have a big battle this week though and here's a picture to keep Boomers and Lightning fans happy.

And now, those head-to-heads...

BENDIGO: V Canberra 2-1, +8. Series Pending, Game 4 also in Canberra this round. V Dandenong 2-1, +16. Best-of-3 Series Won. V Perth 1-1, -28. One left in this best-of-3, making the margin largely unimportant (Unless there's a three-way tie). V Sydney 1-3, 0. Series Lost. V Townsville 1-3, -16. 4-game Series Lost.

CANBERRA: V Bendigo 1-2, -8. Series Pending with fourth game this week. V Dandenong 1-2, -8. Best-of-3 Series Lost. V Perth 1-2,-13. Series Lost. V Sydney 2-2, -1. 4-game Series Lost. V Townsville 2-1, -23. Scored the home upset needed to keep this 4-game series alive, despite negative points spread.

DANDENONG: V Bendigo 1-2, -16. Best-of-3 Series Lost. V Canberra 2-1 +8. Best-of-3 Series Won. V Perth 2-1, +31. This is a 4-gamer and points buffer is very solid. V Sydney 1-1, -7. Best-of-3 Series Pending. V Townsville 1-1, +13. Best-of-3 Series Pending.

PERTH: V Bendigo 1-1, +28. Best-of-3 with decider in Bendigo. V Canberra 2-1, +13. Best-of-3 Series Won. V Dandenong 1-2, -31. Fourth game to go but points spread favours Rangers. V Sydney 1-2, -33. Best-of-3 Series Lost. V Townsville 2-1, -11. Best-of-3 Series Won.

SYDNEY: V Bendigo 3-1, 0. Series Won. V Canberra 2-2, +1. 4-game Series Won. V Dandenong 1-1, +7. Only out of 3 so series pending. V Perth 2-1, +33. Best-of-3 Series Won. V Townsville 3-1, +6. 4-game Series Won.

TOWNSVILLE: V Bendigo 3-1, +16. 4-game Series Won. V Canberra 1-2, +23. This 4-game series pending. V Dandenong 1-1, -13. Series Pending. V Perth 1-2, +11. Best-of-3 Series Lost. V Sydney 1-3, -6. 4-game Series Lost.
