There was no lack of interesting games this round. The round ended with loss of the undefeated team and favorites losing the games. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Al Sharjah (6-1) at the home court on Thursday night. Hosts were defeated by Al Naser (7-0) 79-74. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Al Sharjah. It was a key game for the top position in the league. Al Naser have a solid series of four victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Ahli Shabab. Al Sharjah at the other side keeps the third place with one game lost. Al Naser is looking forward to face Al Bataeh (#5) in the next round. Al Sharjah will play against the league's leader Ahli Shabab in Dubai and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Al Bataeh (#5) was upset in by eighth ranked Al Dhafra 75-70. It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Al Bataeh. Al Dhafra (2-5) moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Banijas and Al Jazeera. Al Bataeh at the other side dropped to the fourth position with four games lost. They share it with Al Wasl and Al Wahda. Al Dhafra will play against bottom-ranked Al Ain (#10) at home in the next round. Al Bataeh will play against the league's second-placed Al Naser (#2) having rather not much hope for a victory.
D1 top team - Ahli Shabab (7-0) managed to deliver another win on Thursday. This time they beat seventh ranked Banijas (2-5) in Abu Dhabi 73-64. Ahli Shabab have a solid series of three victories in a row. Defending champion maintains first place with 7-0 record, which they share with Al Naser. Loser Banijas keep the seventh position with five games lost. They share it with Al Jazeera and Al Dhafra. Ahli Shabab will meet at home Al Sharjah (#3) in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Banijas' supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will travel locally in Abu Dhabi to the arena Al Wahda.
Bottom-ranked Al Ain (0-7) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their seventh consecutive match to ninth ranked Al Jazeera (2-5) 88-85. Al Jazeera moved-up to seventh place, which they share with Banijas and Al Dhafra. Al Ain at the other side, also newcomer in the league, still closes the standings with seven games lost. Al Jazeera's next round opponent will be higher ranked Al Wasl (#4) in Dubai and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Al Ain will play against Al Dhafra (#8) and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Fifth ranked Al Wasl (3-4) crushed at home 6th ranked Al Wahda (3-4) by 28 points 102-74, which is the biggest margin this round on Thursday night. Al Wasl moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Al Wahda and Al Bataeh. Al Wasl will face Al Jazeera (#9) in Abu Dhabi in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Al Wahda's supporters look forward to an exciting derby game next round, where their team will face at home their local rival from Abu Dhabi Banijas.
