Perth back up to 2nd after Kings pip Hawks in overtime thriller

10:11 am on 16 December 2012

The New Zealand Breakers' arch-rivals Perth have climbed back up to second place in the Australian basketball league after the Sydney Kings held off the spirited Wollongong Hawks 70-63 in overtime on Saturday night.

The Wildcats go above the Hawks on head-to-head results, while the Breakers remain alone at the top of the NBL ladder heading into the All Star break.

Perth lost to Wollongong last week but the Hawks' time above the Wildcats was short-lived.
