The NBL season is going by at an electric pace. Adrian Beltre Jersey . Christmas is less than a week away and round 11 is in the books.The Adelaide 36ers gifted themselves an early Christmas present by claiming top spot in the league while Sydney Kings dropped to third place. Jerome Randle enhanced his MVP chances, while Casey Prather didnt hurt his own but his Perth Wildcats are second last and that means he faces a tough ask.Melbourne United seem unable to get up off the mat, and that task is even tougher without marquee forward David Andersen. Brisbane Bullets big man Cam Bairstow, meanwhile, was struck down during the teams loss with a left knee injury.So who and what stood out the most during round 11?New Kings on the BlockThe 36ers were 3-6 and languishing down the ladder after round seven, when they couldnt win at home and their defence had as many holes as Swiss cheese. Four rounds later, they are riding a seven-game win streak to claim top spot in the league behind a 10-6 record.Their effort in taking down the Kings twice during round 11 (one at home, one on the road) showed the league theyre a force to be reckoned with.MVP front-runner Jerome Randle compiled 43 points and 15 assists over the two games, and seemed to relish the chance to dethrone the Kings while lining up against reigning MVP Kevin Lisch.Free BasketballThe league is in an incredible position; this we all know. The pre-game entertainment is great fun for all, the crowds are hyped, and the on-court action is being played at an incredibly high level.During the 2015-16 NBL season there was a total of five games that went into overtime. To showcase how absurd this season has been, at the completion of round 11 weve already had six games going longer than expected.To say that fans are getting there money worth this season is a gross understatement. The NBL is in a great place and fans will be flocking far and wide to attend any game if this level continues.Play off PratherCasey Prather averages 21.6 points per game and can turn games almost single-handedly. Unfortunately for Prather, the rest of his Wildcats team are not playing to the level to which were accustomed.Prather can look unstoppable at times and can get to the rim at will, but the Breakers in round 11 exposed a flaw in his armour. They gave Prather space on the perimeter. They dropped off and stood closer to the paint than to their man, effectively asking him to shoot the three ball; Prather obliged and shot just 2-8 from deep.Bench ProductionStarters will always grab the headlines and play the bulk of the minutes during a game, but no team can get over the line without help from their second unit.Depth is just as important as star quality, and the Illawarra Hawks are riding that wave more than most.The Hawks have scored 459 points in the past three rounds, with the bench accounting for 54 percent of that total. With Rotnei Clarke leading the way, the Hawks second unit dont give opposing sides any room to stop for air.MVP?SleeperHaving come back to the league after a nine-year stint overseas, Brad Newley is putting together a season worthy of MVP contention.Kings captain Kevin Lisch will draw the fanfare and attention, but Newley has become the teams Swiss Army knife as he goes quietly about his business. He ranks second among the Kings players for points and rebounds while leading the team in assists.Compare his numbers to the other MVP front-runners, and the argument is there for all to see.Brad Newley: 17.6 points - 5.2 rebounds - 4 assistsCasey Prather: 21.6 points - 4.9 rebounds - 3.8 assistsJerome Randle: 22.5 points - 2.8 rebounds - 5.1 assistsNewley deserves consideration among the best players in the league right now. Custom Texas Rangers Jerseys . You can watch the game live on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. The Flyers had won seven of eight before dropping their last two outings on consecutive days over the weekend. Philadelphia was handed a 6-3 loss by the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday afternoon before dropping a 4-1 decision to the Rangers the following night in New York City. Nomar Mazara Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. http://www.authenticrangerspro.com/rangers-shin-soo-choo-jersey/ . Only three players drafted by NHL clubs were included on the Czech selection camp roster on Wednesday. Those players were Dallas Stars 2012 first-rounder Radek Faksa, Winnipeg Jets 2013 fourth-rounder Jan Kostalek and Phoenix Coyotes 2012 seventh-rounder Marek Langhamer.Arsene Wenger bemoaned Arsenals poor finishing against Hull City on Saturday, but said he was happy to take an FA Cup fifth-round replay after their goalless draw at the Emirates Stadium. Wenger spoke in favour of replays prior to the game, suggesting the FA should keep it as it is following suggestions rules of the famous competition should change to ease fixture congestion.And the Arsenal manager believes his side can cope with the extra game as long as they avoid further injury problems. When asked if the replay was a nightmare, Wenger told reporters: A nightmare? No. It would have been a nightmare if we had gone out. Calum Chambers failed to steer the ball on goal at the far post as Hull frustrated Arsenal The frustration is not to score. Its not what we wanted, the replay, but Im happy to have it. Im not as relaxed as I look, and I would be nervous or angry if I could change the result. Its not what I planned but its how you respond and how you find the solution.If you dont have injuries, you can cope. If there are one or two injuries, then it could be a problem. But I like the English format and I like that you dont do it like anyone else.We need to be more efficient in the final third. Well not have as much of the ball on Tuesday night (against Barcelona) so well need to be much more efficient when we do have it. Joel Campbells second-half free-kick was tipped onto the post The Gunners face Barca at home on Tuesday before three Premier League games in a week against Manchester United, Swansea City and Totteenham, and with the fixtures piling up, Wenger made nine changes for Hulls visit. Cole Hamels Jersey. played the team that, in my opinion, had the quality to win the game, he added. The Barcelona game was not in my mind at all. I rested (Aaron) Ramsey and (Mesut) Ozil completely because they have played more games since the start of the season.Ozil was a bit sick in the week so I left him out. Ramsey has played a lot of games. A positive of the day is that [Danny] Welbeck came through well.Barca play Las Palmas on Saturday, with a re-run on Sky Sports 1 at 5.30pm, and the Arsenal manager admitted he would be rushing home to watch the La Liga leaders ahead of their Champions League clash. We were the favourites today, said Wenger, but we wont be on Tuesday night. We will need great solidarity, we will need to defend well, we know that, and to make the maximum of our chances, like we didnt do today.I want to go home now because they are on television at 5.30pm and I want to see it. Eldin Jakupovic was excellent for Hull City in goal, making 11 saves Arsenal were denied by a superb performance from Hulls second-choice goalkeeper Eldin Jakupovic, who made 11 saves to preserve the clean sheet, and Wenger paid tribute to his performance.They defended well and their keeper played well, but our final ball was maybe not good enough, added the Gunners boss.When we got the ball in the final third, we needed a different solution. Hull did well, of course, but we have to look at ourselves as well.
