There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team, favorites losing the games and even winless team recording their first victory.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of Al Nasr (3-1) in Riyadh on Friday night. Hosts were defeated by Al Ahli Jeddah (4-0) 93-89. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Al Nasr. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Al Ahli Jeddah have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 4-0 record, which they share with Al Ittihad. Al Nasr at the other side keeps the third place with one game lost. Al Ahli Jeddah is looking forward to face Al Fateh (#4) in Al Hasa in the next round. Al Nasr will play on the road against Al Noor in Mecca and is hoping to prove to their fans that this time they can win.
Another exciting game was played in Al Khobar between seventh ranked Al Ansar and 8th ranked Al Nahda where Al Ansar (2-2) crushed Al Nahda (1-3) on the road with 29-point difference 94-65. Al Ansar moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Uhud. Newly promoted Al Nahda keeps the eighth position with three games lost. They share it with Al Hilal and Al Noor. Al Ansar will play against Al Arabi (#11) in Al-Qassim in the next round where they are favorite. Al Nahda will play on the road against Uhud in Medina and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Al Hilal can celebrate their first win this season after three consecutive losses. They used home court advantage to defeat Al Noor (1-3) 87-38 on Saturday. Al Hilal left bottom position moving up to eighth place, which they share with Al Nahda and Al Noor. Al Hilal will meet bottom-ranked Al Salam (#12) in the next round. Al Noor will play against Al Nasr (#3) and hope to win that game.
Top-ranked Al Ittihad blasted bottom-ranked Al Salam (0-4) in Al-Awamiyah 88-59 keeping the perfect record after 4 rounds. Al Salam is still unable to win any game. Al Ittihad have a solid four-game winning streak. Defending champion (4-0) keeps a position of league leader, which they share with Al Ahli Jeddah. Al Salam at the other side still closes the standings with four games lost. Al Ittihad's next round opponent will be Al Wehda (#5) in Mecca. Al Salam will play at home against Al Hilal (#8) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Bottom-ranked Al Arabi (0-3) tried to put together a comeback for its first victory of the season, but they fell short in the 106-60 loss to sixth ranked Al Wehda (2-1) in Al-Qassim on Friday evening. Al Wehda moved-up to fifth place. Loser Al Arabi still closes the standings with three games lost. Al Wehda will face league's second-placed Al Ittihad in Jeddah in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Al Arabi will play on the road against Al Ansar (#6) in Medina and looks forward to get finally their first victory.

In the last game of round 4 Uhud lost to undefeated Al Fateh in Al Hasa 88-96.
