The Melbourne Tigers centre Chris Anstey beat suspension, then beat the South Dragons virtually single-handedly last night to send the Australian National Basketball League grand final series into a deciding fifth game.
Anstey produced a remarkable individual performance as the Tigers won game four 108-95.
He poured in 31 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and posed too many questions for the Dragons to answer to level the best-of-five series at 2-all.
It means the last ever NBL championship before the new league is launched will be decided at the Dragons' home court in game five tomorrow night.
Anstey was given a suspended sentence earlier this week for striking in game three.
