Tasmania JackJumpers have big task ahead as Sydney Kings win NBL finals thriller to take 2-0 lead

Sydney are one win away from their first NBL championship since 2005 after toppling Tasmania 90-86 in a nail-biting game two of the grand final series.

The Kings, without competition MVP Jaylen Adams who suffered a hamstring injury in game one, came back from a 10 point first-quarter deficit.

Sydney captain Xavier Cooks (20 points) stood up late, with 11 points in a fourth quarter that went tit-for-tat.

JackJumpers’ American guard Josh Adams, who had a game-high 36 points, nailed two three pointers under pressure late to keep his side within touching distance.
