The game had a very big importance for third-ranked Magic as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Magic edged bottom-ranked Limpopo Pride in Johannesburg 72-70. Magic have a solid series of four victories in a row. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Kwazulu Marlins and W.C. Mountaineers. Limpopo Pride at the other side still closes the standings with five games lost. They share the position with E.C. Windbreakers and N.C. Zebras.
Important game to mention about took place in Tshwane. Sixth ranked Rhinos (2-3) saved a 3-point victory on the road edging 5th ranked Suns (3-2) 65-62 on Saturday evening. Rhinos maintains sixth place with 2-3 record. Defending champion Suns keep the fifth position with two games lost.
