Wildcats Win – Remain on Top of NBL Ladder

The Perth Wildcats defeated the Melbourne Tigers 87  – 75 at the Perth Arena, holding their spot on top of the NBL ladder.

After a close game, which had the Wildcats trailing by 1 point at half time, the Cats broke away in the final quarter with an 11 – 0 run to secure their 18th win of the season.

The last time these two teams met in Perth the Tigers Mark Worthington shot a buzzer beating 3 pointer to snatch the win for the visitors. This time around the Wildcats shut down Worthington and restricted his input in the game .

With only a few games left in the regular season every game is becoming increasingly important to gain momentum and build for the finals.
