However their fans expected easier game. Worth to mention a great performance of American forward Carlos Powell (199-83, college: S.Carolina) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 21 points and 10 rebounds and the former international forward Tae-Jong Moon (199-75, college: Richmond, agency: Alti Sport) who added 17 points and 9 rebounds during the contest. Forward Jung-Hyun Lee (191-87) responded with 15 points and 8 rebounds. ET Land Elephants maintains third position with 18-8 record having just three points less than leader SK Knights.

The game between Top Four teams took place in Changwon. 4th ranked host LG Sakers (13-13) were smashed by third ranked Mobis Phoebus (19-8) 84-49. The winners were led by American forward Ricardo Ratliffe (203-89, college: Missouri) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 23 points and 12 rebounds (on 10-of-13 shooting from the field) and Ji-Hoon Ham supported him with 17 points and 6 rebounds. Even 7 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists by American power forward Rodrique Benson (207-84, college: California) did not help to save the game for LG Sakers. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Mobis Phoebus have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion moved-up to second place. LG Sakers at the other side keep the fourth position with 13 games lost. They share it with Anyang KGC.

KCC Egis will meet higher ranked LG Sakers (#4) in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Goyang Orions will play against Dongbu Promy in Wonju and hope to secure a win.
An interesting game took place in Wonju where 6th ranked Samsung Thunders (12-15) were upseton the court of ninth ranked Dongbu Promy (9-18) 71-63. Julian Sensley orchestrated the victory by scoring 30 points and 9 rebounds (on 13-of-16 shooting from the field).
