    Otago Nuggets guard Josh Aitcheson's attributed a high-octane fourth quarter to their success in the national basketball league decider

    Otago Nuggets guard Josh Aitcheson's attributed a high-octane fourth quarter to their success in the national basketball league decider


    The Nuggets have come from behind to beat the Manawatu Jets 79-77 in West Auckland for their first ever title.

    They outscored the Jets by five in the final period, but Aitcheson says heading into it, they knew they needed to up the tempo.



    Prior to this year, the Nuggets hadn't featured in the competition since 2014.
