The games are now more important than at the beginning of the Regular Season. We may still expect few shocking results in upcoming 3 rounds.

The game between Top Four teams took place in Riyadh. Third ranked host Al Nasr (11-2) defeated second-ranked Uhud (11-3) 79-67. It ended at the same time the nine-game winning streak of Uhud. It was a key game for the second position in the league. Al Nasr moved-up to second place. Uhud at the other side dropped to the third position with three games lost. They share it with Al Ittihad. Al Nasr are looking forward to face Al Ahli Jeddah (#5) on the road in the next round. Uhud will play against the league's leader Al Fateh and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
SBL top team - Al Fateh (14-0) had no problems winning another game. This time they crushed seventh ranked Al Ansar (7-7) in Al Hasa 88-56. Undefeated Al Fateh have an impressive 14-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 14-0 record. Al Ansar at the other side dropped to the sixth place with seven games lost. Al Fateh will play against Uhud (#3) in Medina in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Al Ansar will play at home against Al Nahda and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Riyadh was also quite interesting. Fifth ranked Al Ahli Jeddah (9-5) played at the court of 7th ranked Al Hilal (6-8). Al Ahli Jeddah defeated Al Hilal 91-81 on Friday. Al Ahli Jeddah maintains fifth position with 9-5 record. Al Hilal lost third consecutive game. They keep the seventh place with eight games lost. Al Ahli Jeddah will meet at home league's second-placed Al Nasr in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Al Hilal will play against Al Noor (#12) in Mecca and hope to secure a win.
11th ranked Al Arabi (2-12) was outscored at home by fourth ranked Al Ittihad (11-3) with the biggest margin this round 91-56. Defending champion moved-up to third place, which they share with Uhud. Al Arabi at the other side dropped to the tenth position with 12 games lost. Al Ittihad's next round opponent will be Al Salam (#9) in Al-Awamiyah where they are favorite. Al Arabi will play on the road against Al Wehda in Mecca and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last two games of round 14 bottom-ranked Al Noor lost to Al Salam on the opponent's court 62-66. Al Nahda unfortunately lost to Al Wehda in a home game 51-63.

Al Salam - Al Noor 66-62

Rather expected game in Al-Awamiyah where 12th ranked Al Noor (1-13) was defeated by ninth ranked Al Salam (4-10) 66-62. Al Salam maintains ninth position with 4-10 record. Al Noor lost eleventh consecutive game. Newly promoted team stay at the bottom place with 13 games lost. Al Salam's next round opponent will be higher ranked Al Ittihad (#4) in Jeddah and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
