AN NBL record attendance of 18,049 at Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena tonight watched mesmerised as the defending champion Kings banged a nail into New Zealand's coffin with a comprehensive 91-68 rout, built on a second half defensive masterclass and a reasonably acceptable contribution by Tim Soares.

Kings of heart as Breakers choke

In: NBL — Sunday, 5 Mar, 2023

THE words "never under-estimate the heart of a champion" were rarely more apt than today in Auckland as the defending NBL champion Sydney Kings, behind the all-court efforts of Justin Simon and a cast of role players, erased Friday's Championship Series home loss to New Zealand with an 81-74 devastation.

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals — Thursday, 23 Feb, 2023

OUR Australia E team tips off tonight now in its second-last FIBA World Cup qualifying game - the Boomers have already qualified by the way - against Bahrain but this disruption to the NBL Championship Series truly is unconscionable and just makes winning their fourth title that much tougher for Mody Maor's New Zealand.
