United upsets top-placed Kings in NBL

NZN 26/11/2016

Ware revealed after the match that he was reacting to the defence on the final match-winning play.

"I was getting to the rim pretty well and he (Cadee) was sagging off," said Ware. "He backed off so I shot it."

Quickly becoming a fan favourite, Ware is enjoying his time in Melbourne so far.

"I am loving it," he said. "One of the better crowds I played for around the world.

"The fans ... they love basketball - you can tell the way they're into the game."

Sydney coach Andrew Gaze was disappointed to lose but felt the home side earned the win.

"There was a lot of good things that happened but we've got to acknowledge that our opponents are really, really good," said Gaze.

"They are a very, very talented team. Casper ... clearly can play in the crisis as well with a huge shot."
