Round 21 of the 2013/14 NBL season recorded the highest cumulative crowd attendance figures for the past five years.
And fans were rewarded with one of the most exciting rounds of basketball this season.
Strong numbers in Perth, Wollongong, New Zealand, Adelaide and Melbourne combined for a total of 34,673 fans spread across five games.
This figure eclipsed the previous high mark set in Round 16 this season, when 32,763 fans flocked to games across Australia and New Zealand.
Most notably, 7,532 fans were on hand at Hisense Arena to witness Melbourne Tigers star Chris Goulding put on a performance for the ages with the first 50-point outing since the League moved to 40 minute games.
The Tigers have been averaging 6,640 visitors at Hisense in four games so far this season, which is more than a thousand higher on average than the 2012/13 season.
Perth Arena remained a fortress with 11,528 supporters in the stands to see the Wildcats defeat the Townsville Crocodiles. Perth is averaging an attendance of 11,479 per game.
With the competition entering its final two weeks of the regular season, these numbers are expected to continue.
