Mountaineers left bottom position moving up to third place, which they share with NW Eagles. Magic at the other side keeps the second position with two games lost. They share it with Kwazulu Marlins and Mpumalanga R.. Mountaineers will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Magic's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Johannesburg to the arena Panthers.
Another interesting game was a derby match between two teams from Johannesburg: Panthers (#1) and Magic (#2). Magic was defeated at home 52-61 and even the fact of playing on their own court did not help. Panthers have a solid four-game winning streak.
