There’s just eight games left in the NBL regular season and still seven teams with a chance to reach the playoffs and just three teams guaranteed to be there while the MVP race between Xavier Cooks, Mitch Creek and Bryce Cotton reaches fever pitch.
Cooks, Creek and Cotton all delivered MVP level performances across Round 17 of NBL23 with Cooks producing the first triple-double in the league since Josh Giddey, Creek doing all he can to secure the South East Melbourne Phoenix a playoff spot and Cotton putting up 40 inside The Jungle.
With the Sydney Kings, Cairns Taipans and New Zealand Breakers guaranteed of top six positions, it leaves the Tasmania JackJumpers, Perth Wildcats, South East Melbourne Phoenix and Melbourne United fighting over the last three spots.
