An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Abadan. Second ranked Naft Abadan faced 4th placed Chemidor. Host Naft Abadan (15-3) defeated guests from Tehran (10-8) 93-82. The hosts trailed by 4 points after first quarter, but they stormed back to get the 6-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 93-82. Naft Abadan dominated down low during the game scoring 60 of its points in the paint compared to Chemidor's 38. American-Ivorian guard Doron Perkins (189-83, college: Santa Clara) fired a double-double by scoring 29 points, 15 rebounds, 4 assists and 4 steals for the winners. British power forward Ryan Richards (212-91, agency: Three Eye Sports) chipped in 18 points and 7 rebounds. American guard Daequan Cook (195-87, college: Ohio St.) produced 35 points (!!!) and 8 rebounds for lost side. Chemidor's coach Javad Rahmatipour rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Naft Abadan have an impressive series of nine victories in a row. They maintain second place with 15-3 record behind leader Petrochimi. Chemidor at the other side dropped to the fifth position with eight games lost. Naft Abadan are looking forward to face Shahrdari Gorgan (#9) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Chemidor will play against Arak (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader Petrochimi delivered the sixteenth victory. This time they crushed 6th ranked Tabriz (9-9) 93-63. Worth to mention a great performance of American swingman James White (201-82, college: Cincinnati, agency: Three Eye Sports) who helped to win the game recording 13 points. Oshin Sahakian contributed with 10 points and 9 rebounds for the winners. The former international point guard Erfan Nasajpour (177-84) answered with 8 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists for Tabriz. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. The victory was the third consecutive win for Petrochimi. Defending champion maintains first place with 16-2 record. Tabriz lost their fourth game in a row. They keep the sixth position with nine games lost. Petrochimi will play against Azad (#3) in Tehran in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Tabriz will play on the road against Shiraz a.s Pipe and hopes to get back on the winning track.
