Three point King

Sydney Kings star Jason Cadee is officially the NBL's best sharpshooter and now $5,000 richer, crushing Illawarra import Rotnei Clarke 20-16 in the final round of the Chemist Warehouse three-point shootout on Sunday night. All eight teams were featured, with two changes from original programming – Cairns subbing in Fuquan Edwin for captain Cameron Gliddon and Terrance Ferguson for Adam Doyle. The starting points were chosen by the shooter, with most opting for the left corner, and each Wilson game ball that hit the mark was worth a single point. Sixers young gun Ferguson was first cab off the rank, connecting on one from the first rack on his way to 13. Brisbane's Daniel Kickert had the crowd support and found his joy from the wings, but could only equal Ferguson's 13. Edwin was next but faded after a solid first couple of racks to finish with 10, while Illawarra point guard Rotnei Clarke followed it up with a score that would get him to the final round. The former league MVP, streaky as ever, made his first four shots on the way to 16. Melbourne United's Chris Goulding was the first to start on the right corner and began solidly suffered from the top of the key on his way to a meek 10. Breakers veteran Thomas Abercrombie looked destined for the final after canning his first six, but again struggled on the wings and actually ended a ball short on the final rack due to his slow release. Perth rookie Dexter Kernich-Drew was the only other to start on the right and began with a nervous airball before landing four of five on the right wing. He finished on 13. Eventual winner Jason Cadee matched Clarke's 16, but had to turn his fortunes around very quickly after a 1/5 start to hit nine of 10 on the left wing and straight-on racks.   THE FINAL Rotnei Clarke – 16 ? ? ? ? ?     ? ? ? ? ?     ? ? ? ? ?     ? ? ? ? ?     ? ? ? ? ?
