The most interesting game of round 8 in the JBL was a home defeat of 4th ranked Hitachi Sunrockers (9-7) to third ranked Panasonic Trians (10-6) 79-71 in the game for the third place. It ended the three-game winning streak of Hitachi Sunrockers. The guests trailed by 3 points after first quarter, but they rallied back to get the 1-point lead at the halftime and eventually won the game 79-71. Strangely Hitachi Sunrockers outrebounded Panasonic Trians 44-31 including a 22-5 advantage in offensive rebounds. It was a great shooting night for Panasonic Trians especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 60.0 percentage. Worth to mention a great performance of American power forward Jameel Watkins (211-77, college: Georgetown) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 25 points, 16 rebounds and 5 assists and international guard Kenta Hirose (193-85) who added 13 points and 5 rebounds during the contest. American power forward Jamar Smith (206-80, college: Maryland) responded with a double-double by scoring 17 points and 15 rebounds. Hitachi Sunrockers' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Panasonic Trians maintains third position with 10-6 record having four points less than leader Toyota Alvark. Hitachi Sunrockers at the other side keep the fourth place with seven games lost. They share the position with Toshiba BT. Panasonic Trians are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Hokkaido L. (#8) in Saporro in the next round where they are favorite. Hitachi Sunrockers will play on the road against the league's second-placed Aishin Sea Horses (#2) in Kariya and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Important game to mention about took place in Nagoya. Sixth ranked Mitsubishi Dolphins (5-11) saved a 1-point derby victory at home edging 5th ranked Toshiba Thunders (9-7) 87-86 on Saturday evening. The winners were led by Bahamas power forward Magnum Rolle (211-86, college: Louisiana Tech) who scored that evening 19 points and 7 rebounds and Takuya Tashiro supported him with 17 points and 4 assists. Even a double-double of 31 points and 16 rebounds by American forward Nick Fazekas (211-85, college: Nevada) did not help to save the game for Toshiba Thunders. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Mitsubishi Dolphins maintains sixth position with 5-11 record. Toshiba Thunders lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the fourth place with seven games lost. They share the position with Hitachi SR. Mitsubishi Dolphins will play against league's leader Toyota Alvark in Fuchu in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.

Another interesting game was a derby match between two local teams from Osaka: Hitachi Sunrockers (#4) and Panasonic Trians (#3).
