The NBL season kicked off with the debut
appearance of new club Gold Coast Blaze. The
Blaze commenced their season at home to
reigning premiers Brisbane Bullets, but after
matching it with the champions in the first half
were unable to stay in contact in the third
quarter as the Bullets built a match-winning
lead.
It was to be a double-loss for the Blaze when
they went down to the Sydney Kings in their
first road trip on Sunday. Led by Mark
Worthington who finished with 26 points, the
Kings jumped the Blaze early and the
competition newcomers were unable to force
their way back into the contest.
The overseas teams had disappointing starts
to the season, with the Singapore Slingers
suffering back to back losses; while New
Zealand Breakers went down at home to Cairns
Taipans. It was a successful start to the
season for the Taipans, who also recorded a
comprehensive 99-75 win over Townsville
Crocodiles at the Cairns Convention Centre,
DeVries leading the way with 31 points.
Cairns are joined on 2 wins by Melbourne
Tigers, the 2005/06 champions having little
trouble with either Singapore or Wollongong
Hawks. Perth Wildcats are on top, dominating
from start to finish against the hapless
Singapore Slingers to race to a 32-point
demolition.
