6:01 am on 30 June 2011

Taranaki's kept alive its slim National Basketball League playoff hopes with a 96-92 win over Auckland.

Taranaki are now the only team left out of the top six, that can still make the playoffs, but will have to beat the Wellington Saints tomorrow in Wellington in another suddend death match.

If they beat the Saints they'll then need to beat Manawatu on Sunday by more than eleven points to remain in contention.
