Sydney Kings win back-to-back NBL titles after epic Game 5 triumphSydney Kings defended their NBL title by beating Breakers 77-69A spectator tossed a water bottle on the court following a controversial callAussie basketball legend Andrew Gaze called the gesture 'disgraceful' Published: 15:44 GMT, 15 March 2023 | Updated: 21:20 GMT, 15 March 2023 The Sydney Kings have defended their NBL title by defeating the New Zealand Breakers 77-69 in the fifth and final game of the championship series at Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena. The incident was the only sour note of an otherwise spectacular night of basketball. In front of the largest NBL crowd in history - 18, 124 - NBA-bound forward Xavier Cooks had his best game of the series to help the Kings fight back from 12 points down in the first half. The victory confirms a dynasty for the Kings, who have now won back-to-back titles in Chase Buford's first two seasons as coach despite significant roster changes in the off-season. The win put paid to a Breakers fairytale - New Zealand spent the whole of last season on the road due to COVID-19 and finished bottom of the ladder - as they were denied the chance to write the final chapter in their rag-to-riches story under rookie coach Mody Maor. Sydney's fifth NBL title comes after one of the closest championship series in NBL history - it marked only the fifth time a best-of-five series had been taken to five games, and the second time since 1997 the team that lost game one went on to clinch the trophy. The decision enraged the Kings bench, with Sydney coach Chase Buford furiously appealing for goaltending while a fan launched a water bottle onto the court. The Sydney Kings beat the New Zealand Breakers in a five-game series to retain the NBL title The defending champions won Game 5 in Sydney 77-69 to make it two titles in two years'That’s disgraceful. That’s just completely unacceptable, ' Australian basketball legend Andrew Gaze said on commentary. A thrilling Game 5 was only marred by a spectator tossing a water bottle onto the court following a controversial refereeing decision. With eight minutes left in the final quarter and the scores tied, Kings guard Jordan Simon broke free and looked to seal an easy lay-up only for Breakers forward Derek Pardon to intervene. Pardon batted away the ball from the rim and the referee allowed the play to continue, with the Breakers streaming up court and taking the lead courtesy of Jamaal Brantley's three-pointer. The Breakers were quicker to come out of the blocks and led by as many as 11 points in the first quarter as Will McDowell-White (12 points, eight rebounds), one of their best this series, called the shots. The NBL fined both Kings coach Chase Buford and Breakers CEO Matt Walsh for criticising its referees this week but only Sydney attracted the attention of the officials early on Wednesday - the Kings gave six fouls away before the Breakers gave one. Sydney were unable to attack the paint as normal, locked out by resolute New Zealand defence and forced into taking low-percentage shots.
