Clock favours Tigers over Taipans

THE Melbourne Tigers have played Scrooge to a Jamar Wilson-less Cairns Taipans with a much-needed 67-65 win at The Cage on Friday night.

Abysmal scoring in the fourth quarter made it anyone's game. But because the Taipans allowed 10 seconds to tick from the clock without fouling - after getting within one point - they simply ran out of time.

Alex Loughton (6 points, 2/14 from the field) tried to draw a foul on a final-hope three-point attempt, but it came up short and the Tigers got their second consecutive win.

Brad Hill (14 points, 12 rebounds) and Ian Crosswhite (11 points, 10 rebounds) showed positive signs for the away team.

Cairns coach Aaron Fearne was nonplussed about whether the game would make a big impact on their finals chances, citing injuries as a major hurdle in the first 12 rounds.
