Adelaide force decider

7:43 am on 12 April 2014

The Adelaide 36ers have forced a deciding third game in their Australian National Basketball League grand final series against the Perth Wildcats, with a clutch 89-84 win in front of a sellout home crowd.

The 36ers held off a late charge from the Wildcats, powered by electrifying import Gary Ervin who had 23 points including a number of crucial free throws late in the contest.

The win sets up a deciding clash this Sunday at Perth Arena to decide the 2013/14 NBL Championship.
