Melbourne United just misses out in overtime loss

IN THE NBL's 6275-game history only one team - Melbourne United - has played three successive overtime games.

That happened against Perth in Melbourne yesterday, but United could not register more history by winning all three of them, falling just short 81-80 to the defending champions.

Stephen Dennis' jumper with two seconds left in OT rebounded off the glass, for the Wildcats to open up a two-game lead over Melbourne in third place.

It was an unfortunate ending for Dennis (pictured), top-scoring for the game with 20 points and picking up five rebounds.

DeAndre Daniels excelled for Perth, with 18 points.It was a Dennis bounce assist for Daniel Kickert to score with three seconds left in regulation which brought the score to 71-all, taking the game to overtime.

Results: New Zealand Breakers 97 Sydney Kings 85; Cairns Taipans 100 Wollongong Hawks 93; Adelaide 36ers 91 Townsville Crocodiles 84
