Kings lead again: Player of the Week

IT may have been the most significant round of the NBL season and as such, was full of wonderful options for our Player of the Week accolade.

Illawarra Hawks import Demitrius Conger - a Round 12 Player of the Week winner - started on fire, with 24 points at 53 per cent, seven rebounds, three assists and a steal but could not prevent New Zealand from taking their first matchup in Wollongong.

Sadly for Hawks fans, he couldn't find his shot in the second encounter, going 1-of-13, though still leading his team in rebounds (7) and assists (7) as they bowed out of playoff contention.

In Perth, Jesse Wagstaff and Bryce Cotton both went off for 25 points as the Wildcats stifled Adelaide's much-vaunted offence, and Cotton led the way in their reversal at Titanium Security Arena with 14 points to keep himself in award candidacy.

But Mitch Creek was the early star of the heavyweight rematch in which Daniel Johnson (18 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks) produced one of the toughest all-round games in his time as a 36er.

The less said about the Melbourne-Brisbane matchup - NBL marketing should consider selling DVDs of the first half as an insomnia cure - the better.

And that leaves reigning MVP Jerome Randle, who carved up Cairns with game highs in points (24 at 58 per cent) and assists (6) to claim this week's mantle as the round's top player.

Randle joins Casper Ware, Edgar Sosa and Cotton as multiple winners, Sydney's superstar playmaker electrifying with 16 points, five assists, three rebounds and one steal in just the first half, putting the Kings ahead 53-44 at the break.
