The 2017 NBL Finals was the championship series of the 2016–17 NBL season and the conclusion of the season. Perth Wildcats defeated Illawarra Hawks in three games (3-0) to claim their eighth NBL championship.

Cotton did the damage in first half with 23 points, better than the 21 he was kept to against Melbourne in Round 1.

The Cats were much more settled this week after snatching a two-point win against United.

Besides Cotton's heroics, the big improvement came from big Cats Dario Hunt and Majok Majok. Against United, the pair combined for a total of just eight points and three rebounds.

On Friday, they already had 10 points and six rebounds at quarter-time.

Hunt finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds, his work on the boards, with Nick Kay, especially in offense, is what hurt the Hawks early.

Ball scored the first points of the game and the Hawks led by six points half-way through first quarter.

But they failed to get the ball consistently into Aaron Brooks' hands and couldn't find a regular scorer. Ball led that stat for the Hawks with 15 points.

Brooks dropped 23 points in his debut last week but had had only three shots for two points at half-time and the Cats led 55-42. He finished with just three points and had only three shots.

The Hawks must win when they host Cairns on Monday, while the Wildcats also play the Taipans next, on Friday, again in Perth.

Winless United to work on NBL finishes .
Melbourne United hope to establish some winning habits after another heart-breaking NBL loss leaves them stranded at 0-3.Last season's grand finalists have crashed to three straight losses with each game decided by clutch shooting from their opponents in the dying stages.
