The Sydney Kings have won the first series of the NBL season, clinching an 86-78 eight-point comeback win over the Taipans in Cairns.The Snakes needed to win by 10 points on Friday night to clinch their first series win in almost two years and they were playing like it in the early skirmishes.A fired up Mark Worthington scored 11 points in the first quarter to put his team out to the required 10-point lead.And they kept pressing, Bamaga big Nate Jawai unleashed a contender for dunk of the season halfway through the third, latching onto a perfect Travis Trice alley-oop, sending the crowd skywards.But the Taipans again refused to give their fans an easy night, even though at one point they led the NBLs ladder leaders by 15 points.A run of sloppy fourth-quarter turnovers from Cairns put Sydney back into the contest late and Kings import Greg Whittington finally stole back the lead with a two-handed jam with three minutes remaining.From there, the Kings showed their class as American centre Josh Powell hit a tough fadeaway jumper and Brad Newley began to rack up rebounds almost at will.Five Kings players finished with scores in the double digits: Whittington with 14, Lisch had 18, Newley 20, Maric 10 while Powell contributed 17.Cairns point guard Travis Trice broke his two-game streak of scoring 28-plus points at home with 12, while Worthington ended up as the Snakes top scorer on 22 points.The result is the Taipans second home loss of the season at the Cairns Convention Centre and puts the Kings three games clear of second-placed Illawarra on the ladder.Sydney play Melbourne United on Sunday, while the Taipans back up on home turf on Monday night against the Adelaide 36ers.

BERLIN -- As Bayern Munichs traditional rivals continue to drop points, Hertha Berlin has taken the mantle of challenging the leader with its best ever start in the Bundesliga.Hertha, which was level with Bayern before the defending champions comfortable 2-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach in Saturdays late game, is struggling to keep expectations down after a hard-fought 2-1 victory over previously unbeaten Cologne.Its a bit much, Hertha striker Vedad Ibisevic said of being called Bayerns challenger. Were playing well but its early. Were not Bayern-chasers, thats other teams.Hertha leads an unlikely chasing pack comprising Hoffenheim, Cologne, and Leipzig, while the traditional heavyweights are all lagging behind after making false starts.Dortmund is six points off the pace but needed Christian Pulisic to rescue a 3-3 draw at lowly Ingolstadt. The second-half substitute scored one and set up another to prevent Dortmund slumping to its third defeat of the season.BAYERN MUNICH 2, BORUSSIA MOENCHENGLADBACH 0Bayern attacked from the off and duly went ahead when Arturo Vidal powered a header under the bar from Rafinhas cross.Fifteen minutes later, Douglas Costa celebrated his first start of the season by taking David Alabas cross on his chest and firing the ball inside the right post. The Brazilian ran over to two fans, posed and took a selfie with them.If he always scores, he can take 100 selfies, Bayern defender Mats Hummels said.It was all Bayern with `Gladbach offering next to nothing in attack. But for an early shot over on a counterattack from Fabian Johnson, every other effort in the first half came from the home side.Bayern was able to conserve energy in the second half, when Andre Hahn struck the post for `Gladbach.INGOLSTADT 3, BORUSSIA DORTMUND 3Dortmunds title chances took another blow after dropping points for the fourth time in eight games.Almog Cohen gave Ingolstadt an early lead after a poorly defended free kick, then Roman Weidenfeller prevented the home side going further ahead when he blocked Lukas Hinterseers overhead kick. Weidenfeller started for the first time since March as Roman Buerki had a cold.Another free kick from a similar position on the right allowed Dario Lezcano to head in Ingolsttadts second.ddddddddddddBad at the back, Dortmund also created little up front in the face of Ingolstadts well-organized defense.Thomas Tuchel sent on Pulisic after the break and Mario Goetze shortly afterward. The latter was involved straight away as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pulled one back with his seventh of the season.The celebrations lasted less than a minute, however, as Lezcano grabbed his second, minutes before Ingolstadt hit the post.Pulisic set up Adrian Ramos to get within one in the 69th, and he prodded home the equalizer from close range in the last minute after Orjan Nyland saved Lukasz Piszczeks initial effort.Ingolstadt was previously bottom after six straight defeats.HERTHA BERLIN 2, COLOGNE 1Ibisevic fired Hertha into an early lead after a fine run and cross from Mitchell Weiser.Anthony Modeste grabbed the equalizer with his league-leading eighth goal in the 65th, converted from close range after great interplay between Jonas Hector, Konstantin Rausch, and Leonardo Bittencourt.But Niklas Stark grabbed the winner less than 10 minutes later for the high-flying home side.DARMSTADT 3, WOLFSBURG 1Valerien Ismaels tenure at Wolfsburg got off to a rocky start when last defender Jeffrey Bruma was sent off for denying a clear goal chance. Anis Ben-Hatira scored from the resulting free kick in the 25th.Germany striker Mario Gomez equalized on the hour with his first Wolfsburg goal, but Laszlo Kleinheisler restored the home sides advantage eight minutes later, and Sandro Sirigu ensured Wolfsburgs seventh consecutive game without a win.Ismaels predecessor, Dieter Hecking, was sacked on Monday.BAYER LEVERKUSEN 0, HOFFENHEIM 3Leverkusen was dealt a blow when forward Kevin Volland was sent off against his former side in the sixth minute for denying Kerem Demirbay a clear goal chance.Demirbay fired under the bar to open the scoring, Sandro Wagner made it 2-0 early in the second half, and set up Steven Zuber to score on the hour.FREIBURG 2, AUGSBURG 1Second-half goals from Maximilian Philipp and Nils Petersen, both set up by Vincenzo Grifo, gave Freiburg its fourth win of the season.
