Hornets into NBA play-offs

6:42 am on 11 April 2009

The New Zealand basketballer Sean Marks is heading back to the NBA play-offs after his team the New Oreleans Hornets confirmed their place with a 93-87 win over the highly fancied Miami Heat.

Marks scored six points and took five rebounds in his 22 minutes on court.

The Hornets, who made the second round of the play-offs last year, are likely to be the sixth ranked team in the play-offs.

Marks has already been to the play-offs before with other clubs including the San Antonio Spurs and the Phoenix Suns.
