NBL Preview (Round 12)

NBL Preview (Round 12)

Canterbury Rams (12-5) v James Blond Supercity Rangers (9-7) (Live Streamed via NZ  Herald)

When:                     Thursday, May 26, 7pm

Where:                    Cowles Stadium, Christchurch

Referees:                Raewyn Willocks, Sean Cronin, Matt Bathurst

Last meeting:        At Cowles Stadium, Christchurch: Rams 112-102 (April 23, 2016)

Notes

The Canterbury Rams will win their first regular season title since 1993, and third overall if they beat the Rangers, who can clinch the final playoff spot with a victory. The Rangers have dropped their last two games, but even if they lose the next two they can still clinch a playoff spot if the Giants lose to Wellington. Canterbury have the longest active winning streak of five and if they finish 13-5 (72%) it will be their best finish since 1993 when they went 17-5 (77.3%). Obviously the Rangers will need to find a way to contain McKenzie Moore who leads the league in both assists (8.0) and steals (3.6). The Rams are 9-2 since Moore has joined the side, which included the last meeting with the Rangers.  Moore will go head to head with the league leading scorer Eric Devendorf (26.8 points per game), who is coming off a season low 15 in the loss to Taranaki.

 

SIT Zerofees Sharks (10-7) v James Blond Supercity Rangers (9-7)

When: Friday, May 26, 7pm

Where: ILT Stadium, Invercargill

Referees: Melony Wealleans, Yalla Edwards, Elliot Duncan

Last meeting: At ILT Stadium, Invercargill: Rangers 103-100 (April 28, 2016)

Notes

The Sharks will host the Rangers for the second time this season, losing in the first meeting 103-100. The Rangers have won both games against the Sharks this season and if they can win on Friday then it will be the first time they have swept the season series. If the Rangers win their final two games then they will finish ahead of the Sharks in third position. If the Rangers beat the Rams then lose to the Sharks then they will remain in fourth spot. The best that Southland can finish in the regular season is second, but would have to beat the Rangers and then the Saints would have to drop their final two. One player who had struggled of late for the Rangers in 2014 MVP Corey Webster, who in his last three games is averaging 8.6 points, shooting 20.5% from the field. Webster did score a season high 31 against the Sharks in the last meeting in Invercargill.

 

Mike Pero Nelson Giants (9-8) v Wellington Saints (11-5), (Live Streamed via NZ Herald)

When: Saturday, May 27, 7pm

Where: Trafalgar Centre, Nelson

Referees: Miguel Gallardo, Hayden Pipe, Sam Pan

Last meeting: At TSB Bank Arena, Wellington: Saints 101-75 (April 22, 2016)

Notes

Nelson will try to keep their season alive when they host Wellington who could finish as low as third or as high as first depending on results. The last time Nelson missed the playoff was in 2012, and it would be only the fourth time since 1994 that this has happened. The series meetings between the two is split, Wellington winning the last by 26 points. One player they were able to contain was Ray Cowells, who was held to a season low nine points, taking only seven shots, making it the only time this year that he has taken less than 10 field goal attempts. It was a different situation  for Cowells in the Giants 98-89 win over the Saints in Round Three, scoring 30. Cowells will go head to head with Torrey Craig, who is currently fourth in scoring (22.4), but is coming off a tough weekend shooting 14/36 FG (38.8%) and averaging five turnovers in the two losses.

 

Augusta Airs (7-10) v Indigo Hawks (0-16)

When:                     Saturday, May 28, 7pm

Where:                    At TSB Stadium, New Plymouth

Referees:                Miguel Gallardo, Hayden Pipe, Sam Pan

Last meeting:        At Pettigrew Green Arena, Napier: Airs 74-67 (April 24, 2016)

Notes 

The Hawks still remain without a win and to avoid the winless season they will have to win on the road. The Hawke’s Bay franchise has never had a winless season, 1985 their worst ever finish winning one of 18. Taranaki knows would it is like to be in the shoes of the Hawks, last season losing all 18 games, the second time the franchise has done this, the other was in 2009 when they went 0-16. A lot of Taranaki’s turnaround this season is due to coach Ross McMains who is in his first season as an NBL coach. If the Airs can secure their eighth win then it will be their best finish since 2008 when they went 9-9. Taranaki has been the best defensive team in the competition, allowing a league low 80.0 points at 41%. Hawks are the worst allowing opposition teams to score a league high 97.0 points at 51%. If Taranaki win then they will also sweep the regular season series for the first time since 1998. The Hawks have only come within single digits twice this season, on of them was the 74-67 lost to the Airs.

 

Wellington Saints (11-5) v Indigo Hawks (0-16)

When: Sunday, May 29, 3pm

Where: At TSB Bank Arena, Wellington

Referees: Gavin Zimmerman, Nick Naylor, Marty Davison

Last meeting: At TSB Bank Arena, Wellington: Saints 106-63 (April 8, 2016)

Notes

After playing their last five games on the road, the Saints play their final home game of the season against the Hawks, who will be extremely desperate to get a win and not be the fifth team in NBL history to go through a season without a win.  The Hawks have struggled against the Saints of late losing 17 of the last 21 meetings. The Hawks had their worst loss of the season to Wellington of 43 points which is also their worst since 2000.  Scoring as well as defense has been an issue for the Hawks all season, and they wont be helped by the fact that their most experienced player, Paora Winitana, will not play. Winitana is coming off a season high 23 points last week to Nelson and is the Hawks third leading scorer at 10.3 points per game. Wellington will be heading into the ninth straight semi-final, last not making the playoffs in 2007. Eventhough they have clinched a spot they will want to gain some momentum heading into the playoffs as they could potentially have a four game losing streak with two losses this weekend.

 

Strong is Player of the Week for Round 12

The Mike Pero Nelson Giants kept their playoff hopes alive with a 90-77 victory over the Indigo Hawks. American centre, Ben Strong had season highs in points (29) and rebounds (11), earning the player of the week for Round 11. Strong’s team mate Ray Cowells continued his great season, scoring 27. Cowells currently second in the league in scoring at 25.8 points per game in a close battle with Rangers guard Eric Devendorf who is averaging 26.5 points.

Daniel Miller tallied 16 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and three blocks in the Augusta Airs 81-69 win over the James Blond Supercity Rangers. Tony Tolovae continued his hot run of form with 19 points, five rebounds and four assists against the Rangers.

The Canterbury Rams moved to the top of the table with two wins in Round 11. McKenzie Moore and Marcel Jones are proving to be the best duo in the competition. Moore averaged 23 points, 6.5 rebounds, six assists, and 4.5 steals in the two games. Jones had 22 points and 15 rebounds against the Airs and a further 22 points and eight rebounds versus the Saints.

The defending champion SIT Zerofees Sharks clinched a playoff spot last week with a 78-75 win over Wellington. League leading rebounder Alex Pledger grabbed his 12th double-double of the season with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Point guard Mitch Norton collected 19 points, seven assists, and three steals.
