Ware was ablaze early and irresistible late on Saturday in smoking 40 points, the best haul of his outstanding career and the NBL's highest individual tally this season.
The superstar American point guard drained four three-pointers inside the first five minutes to spark the Kings' 23-5 headstart and three treys in as many minutes in the fourth term to bail the hosts out of trouble, after they fell behind by six points.
"I'm proud now but pretty angry at the time when we blew an 18-point lead," Sydney coach Adam Forde said.

NBL Bryce Cotton stars in Perth Wildcats' overtime win over New Zealand Breakers


Bryce Cotton produced a second-half masterclass, capped by an outrageous three-pointer on the full-time buzzer, to spark the Perth Wildcats to a gripping 85-79 overtime victory over the New Zealand Breakers at the Silverdome.
Cotton, the NBL MVP favourite, overcame a scoreless opening term on Tuesday -- on the back of a poor game against Adelaide last Saturday -- to smoke 26 of his game-high 31 points after halftime.
His brilliant performance featured a freakish off-balance, double-pump three-pointer to force overtime, which he dominated.
"We had a timeout left and the other guys knew the play and executed the play great (wth 1.7 seconds left in the final quarter)," Perth coach Trevor Gleeson said. "BC with the double-pump, it looked like it might have been going a bit short, but we'll take it."

The Phoenix gave up a 17-point lead before outplaying the Breakers in the final quarter of Sunday's clash at John Cain Arena to earn a sixth win from their last seven games.
The win puts them two games clear of Sydney and Illawarra in third spot on the ladder, behind leaders Perth and Melbourne United.

MVP Bryce Cotton supreme as Perth Wildcats claw Sydney Kings


Bryce Cotton produced another stellar clutch performance to continue Perth Wildcats' stranglehold over arch-nemesis Sydney Kings with a tough 95-89 victory at RAC Arena.
The two-time defending champions trailed by two points at the last break on Thursday before the NBL's leading scorer and MVP Cotton scored 12 of his 22 points in a scintillating fourth quarter.
John Mooney continued his strong form with 20 points and 11 rebounds, while Todd Blanchfield poured in 18 points.
Kings talisman Casper Ware scored 27 points and played tenacious defence to stymie Cotton for much of the physical contest until fouls limited his impact late, while Jarell Martin (25 points and 11 rebounds) battled hard.

NBL: New Zealand Breakers, Brisbane Bullets make roster moves
The morning after the inaugural NBL Cup came to an end, two teams decided to make significant changes to their respective rosters.
New Zealand Breakers parted ways with import wing Lamar Patterson, with the team then signing Levi Randolph to fill that vacant position.
Randolph, a 6'6 wing who last played in the NBA G-League, signed a two-year deal, with a team option on the second season.
Over in Brisbane, the Bullets parted ways with import guard Orlando Johnson.

Giddey has been earmarked as one of Australia's next basketball superstars.
In his debut season in the NBL the 18-year-old has already shown why NBA teams are watching him so closely ahead of this year's draft, and the impressive Melbourne-born teenager could well be heading to the Tokyo Olympics to represent his country in July.
There's a lot of hype, but experts and those closest to him say it is justified.

NBL Cup: Sydney Kings hold off South East Melbourne Phoenix
Sydney Kings remain in contention for the NBL Cup after lifting in the second half to defeat South East Melbourne Phoenix 91-85.
The Kings came back from eight points down at John Cain Arena on Saturday night to snap a two-game losing run and extend their unbeaten record against the Phoenix to five matches.
Sydney entered Saturday's clash without a victory against a team currently in the top four, or having held on to win a close game, but achieved both goals thanks to 19 points from Dejan Vasiljevic and a double-double from Casper Ware (11 points, 10 rebounds).

New Zealand Breakers smash Adelaide 36ers in NBL Cup


The New Zealand Breakers have produced a record-breaking first-half onslaught to set up a 106-62 thrashing of the Adelaide 36ers in the NBL Cup.
Adelaide entered Saturday's contest at John Cain Arena aiming to improve on their slow starts, after falling behind 36-10 in a loss to Melbourne United two nights earlier.
But New Zealand blew the Sixers off the court with a 32-6 start to set a league record for the largest first-quarter lead in a 40-minute game.
The Breakers increased their advantage to 30 points at the main break, creating a club record for the biggest halftime lead, before going on to become the first team to earn maximum points in the NBL Cup by winning all four quarters.

NBL wants to take NBL Cup showcase overseas


NBL Commissioner Jeremy Loeliger has revealed a bold ambition to take the NBL Cup overseas as a talent showcase in future seasons amid growing interest from NBA scouts.
The inaugural competition-within-a-competition tips off on Saturday, with all nine NBL clubs featuring in a total of 36 games over three weeks in a Melbourne hub.
The NBL Cup concept, which forms part of the National Basketball League's regular season, was spawned from the league's desire to churn out a large portion of games in quick succession amid the looming threat of further coronavirus disruptions.
One positive spin-off has been the attention the basketball bonanza has already garnered in the United States.

NBL Cup round table the big talking points


Our Roundtable is back to answer some of those burning questions.
Currently at 6-0 going into the hub, is Melbourne United far and away the best team in the NBL?
Olgun Uluc: They really are. At a risk of sounding like a broken record, United just has so many top-tier pieces to be a contender, but then boast near-perfect role players to make them the title favourite.
When healthy, United just has too many weapons, and the chemistry seems to be at a point where everyone knows his role going into each game. But then, even in their game against the Hawks - where they were missing Chris Goulding, Shea Ili, and Jo Lual Acuil Jr. - they could then lean on the likes of Mitch McCarron and Jock Landale to be their superstars. Those two players have taken a step back, relative to their ceiling, for the betterment of the team; as much as the talent makes them the favourites to win it all, that type of selflessness is what clearly separates them from the pack.

NBL Ryan Broekhoff joins South East Melbourne Phoenix


South East Melbourne Phoenix have ramped up their pursuit of a maiden NBL title with the signing of Boomers star Ryan Broekhoff for the remainder of the season.
Broekhoff will suit up for the Phoenix towards the end of the NBL Cup, it is hoped, with the 30-year-old sharpshooter currently in Michigan with his family. They will need to clear quarantine once they return to Australia.
Broekhoff has spent the past couple of seasons in the NBA at Dallas Mavericks, before he was then signed and waived by the Philadelphia 76ers, paving the way for his return home.

Casper Ware steers Sydney Kings past New Zealand Breakers in NBL


A fourth-quarter explosion from Casper Ware has helped the Sydney Kings celebrate their return home with a 84-74 NBL victory over the New Zealand Breakers.
With the Kings forced to spend their first six games in Queensland due to COVID-19 restrictions, Ware looked rusty on his home court when he missed seven of his opening eight shots on Friday night.
Breakers star Corey Webster, who had a game-high 25 points, looked set to spoil the Kings' welcome-home party by steering his team to a five-point lead midway through the final quarter.
But Ware showed why he's still considered one of the league's showstoppers, reeling off eight points and assisting on another key bucket to power the Kings down the stretch.
