Round 7 was a see-sawing affair that saw two sets of back to back games. The top of the table Sydney Kings and Perth Wildcats split their games while the New Zealand Breakers and Illawarra Hawks also split theirs.Home court advantage was a big factor this week as five of the six games fell to the home side; Adelaide were the only side not to deliver in front of their home crowd.Melbourne finally returned to the winners list with the return of star guard Chris Goulding, as well as welcoming in new import, Casper Ware.Unfortunately, the action wasnt exactly edge of your seat material as only one out of the six games was decided by single figures.So who and what stood out the most during round 7?Hot StartsJumping out of the blocks and getting a quick start against your opponent is crucial in games of basketball. It puts the opposition squarely behind the eight ball and can force them to throw away the game plan in the hopes of getting back into the game.Every side that won the opening quarter this round won the game.Brisbane stunned Adelaide, hitting more threes in the opening quarter than Adelaide did for the entire game. New Zealand flew out of the blocks and scored the opening 12 points against Illawarra in their opening game; a deficit that was to great too overcome.Welcome ReturnChris Goulding finally pulled on the United jersey again and it couldnt have come at a better time for his side. United had lost five straight since Goulding went down with his ankle injury against the Brisbane Bullets in round 3. Squaring off against the Cairns Taipans and hoping to get off the bottom of the ladder, Goulding was firing on all cylinders.Finishing the game with 30 points and an incredible 8/12 from beyond the arc, equalling the United record for made threes in a game. Hitting big shot after big shot and carrying his side over the line.Problems at HomeHome court is supposed to be your fortress, a place where you can impose your will on opposing teams. Unfortunately for Adelaide, their stadium has effectively become a home away from home for opposing teams.Adelaide have now lost their last four games and more importantly their last two games have been at home. To add some salt into the wounds, theyve lost both games by double digits.The first step in solving any problem is recognizing there is one, Adelaide need to recognize that they have a major problem on their hands.Johnny FlameWith 7:19 left on the game clock in the fourth quarter and the Kings down by 15 points, they were screaming for answers; thats when Brad Newley caught fire and morphed into Johnny Flame.In the space of 2 minutes and 44 seconds, Newley hit four three pointers and brought the Kings to within 4 points.Running around screens and hitting from all around the arc, Newley was simply unstoppable; ultimately finishing with 34 points and hitting 7/10 from deep. Sadly for the Kings, it wasnt enough as the Wildcats ran away with the contest.BlowoutsRound 7 saw the biggest average winning margin of any round so far this season, eclipsing the round four average of 12.6. With only the one game decided by single digits, the average margin of victory over the weekend ended up a whopping; 15.5 points.Illawarra helped this margin with their 31 point decimation of New Zealand in the final game of the round. So far this season there have been two games decided by over 30 points and Illawarra are responsible for both.There have been 42 games during the 2016/17 NBL season with the average margin of victory sitting at 10.47 points. Whilst the competition has been hotter than ever, the games are unfortunately reflecting a more one-sided affair. Earl Campbell Jersey

Peter Gammons, an analyst for Major League Baseballs network and website, drew the ire of hockey fans on Sunday when he criticized the two NHL teams on Twitter for their physical game the night before. FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones, when asked for a scenario in which quarterback Tony Romo would play this season, made reference to the Supreme Courts 1964 ruling on pornography.I dont have a definition for it, but youll know it when you see it, Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday. Its kind of like definition I heard one time of another issue trying to define a negative topic, and they said, I dont know how to say it, but its just something that when you see it, you know its there. Well see it.On Monday, coach Jason Garrett did not make any season-long proclamation about Dak Prescotts job status, but he backed the rookie.You can make it as simple or as complex as you want to make it, Garrett said. Its pretty simple for us: Daks going to play quarterback as we go forward.The Cowboys (11-2) are tied for the NFLs best record and Prescott has 20 touchdown passes and four interceptions. But he has struggled recently, and the Cowboys have scored just 24 points in the past two games.Prescott has gone three straight games without passing for 200 yards, and he had his first multiple-interception game in Sundays 10-7 loss to the Neew York Giants.ddddddddddddThe Cowboys have converted just two of their past 24 third-down tries, none through the air.After the loss Sunday, Garrett and Jones said putting Romo into the Giants game was not contemplated.Romo has been the backup for the past four weeks after spending the first nine games on injured reserve with a compression fracture in his back. He has not played in a regular-season game since Thanksgiving 2015 and has not finished a full game since Nov. 22, 2015.On Tuesday, Jones called the quarterback debate a legitimate discussion.I understand the question, but I dont want to get into the scenario. It goes too far into talking about what we dont want to talk about, Jones said, alluding to injury or poor play. But given the need for [Romo], we want him ready on the spur of the moment to be a part of any effort we make ... to win the ballgames.And, so, it would be when we all probably thought it was time for him to come in and play. I dont want to give you those circumstances because I dont like either one of the discussions.
