Wortho’s Top 5 NBL Moments So Far

Comments

The NBL is flying and itโ€™s already been jam packed with highlights. These have been my top 5 moments so far this season.

#5 โ€“ Cameron Gliddonโ€™s game winner

The ex-Taipan captain has been sensational for his new team in Brisbane. The sharpshooter has been dynamic on the road this season and there was no better example than his game winner to lift the Bullets over the 36ers in Round 4.

#4 โ€“ Bogut Turns Back The Clock

The Sydney Kings had grand plans when they secured the signature of Andrew Bogut. While he has lifted the profile of the NBL since his arrival, we saw his greatest on-court moments against the Hawks in Round 4. He made two behind-the-back moves, before throwing it down with authority.

#3 โ€“ A sellout a week in advance

Melbourne United hosting the Andrew Bogut-led Kings has been the hottest ticket in town. Melbourne Arena will have a Finals-like atmosphere as King Bogut makes his first appearance in his home state.

#2 โ€“ Sobey Triple Double

Nathan Sobey went ham versus the Cairns Taipans in Round 3. He recorded the first triple-double in the past five years, going for 22 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists. The most impressive stat might have been the zero turnovers in what was an unbelievable individual effort.

#1 โ€“ The thriller from the Illa

We were three games into the new season when Melbourne United and Illawarra played a game for the ages. It was only the second time in NBL history that a game had gone into quadruple overtime. It had everything from big shots, great individual performances and obviously more drama than a murder mystery. It took a Casper Ware defensive effort to allow United to survive 123-122.
