There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with defeat of the leader. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Niigata Albirex (33-14) at the home court on Sunday night. Hosts were defeated by Toshiba Thunders (30-17) 81-72. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Niigata Albirex. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Toshiba Thunders shot the lights out from three sinking 13 long-distance shots on high 54.2 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 27 assists comparing to just 13 passes made by Niigata Albirex's players. It was a great evening for international power forward Nick Fazekas (211-85, college: Nevada) who led his team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 32 points and 19 rebounds. The former international swingman Naoto Tsuji (185-89) helped adding 21 points and 6 assists. American Davante Gardner (203-91, college: Marquette) responded with 25 points and 7 rebounds. Toshiba Thunders used an opportunity after Ryukyu GK lost their game and moved up joining them at the top position which they share with defeated Niigata Albirex. Niigata Albirex at the other side still keeps top place with 14 games lost. Toshiba Thunders is looking forward to face Hokkaido L. (#6) in Saporro in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Niigata Albirex will play on the road against Osaka Evessa (#4) and is hoping to win this game.
Fifth-ranked Fukuoka Rizing (11-36) gave a tough game to first ranked Ryukyu GK (30-17) in Okinawa. Ryukyu GK managed to secure only two-point victory 61-59. However their fans expected much easier game. It was an exceptional evening for American forward Kevin Jones (206-89, college: W.Virginia) who led the winners with a double-double by scoring 10 points and 14 rebounds. Ryuichi Kishimoto accounted for 21 points. American forward Marqus Blakely (201-88, college: Vermont) came up with a double-double by scoring 14 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists for Fukuoka Rizing in the defeat. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Ryukyu GK maintains first place with 30-17 record, which they share with Kawasaki BT. Newly promoted Fukuoka Rizing keeps the fifth position with 36 games lost. They share it with Shiga L-Stars. Ryukyu GK will play against Shiga L-Stars (#6) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game.

The game between Top Four teams took place in Nagoya. Third ranked host Diamond Dolphins (25-22) defeated 4th placed Hitachi Sunrockers (21-26) 88-76. The best player for the winners was Hilton Armstrong who had a double-double by scoring 14 points and 24 rebounds.

Gavin Edwards orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 16 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists.

Chiba Jets have an impressive series of seven victories in a row. They maintain first place with 40-7 record. Aishin Sea Horses at the other side keep the third position with 23 games lost. Chiba Jets' next round opponent will be Akita Happinets (#5) at home. Aishin Sea Horses will play against San-en NeoPhoenix in Hamamatsu and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
