Nick Kay has produced another double-double as his Perth Wildcats won a record-extending ninth NBL championship with a 97-82 Game 4 defeat of Melbourne United at Melbourne Arena on Sunday afternoon.
In a high-calibre debut season for the Wildcats after joining them from Illawarra, the Tamworth export had 12 points and 10 rebounds, as well as four assists.
The Boomers big man finished the season averaging 14.82 points and 8.7 rebounds per game.
The grand final series began with strong home victories for both teams in the opening two games, but it was quite the statement Perth made on Friday night at RAC Arena - winning 96-67.
It was always going to be a significant job for Melbourne to respond to that and force a Game 5, even with the comforts of home.
The Wildcats were just feeling too good about themselves for that to happen, with their defence too stifling and their offence fluent enough.
It is a fifth title for the Wildcats in the past decade. And for the first time since 1990, when they won their maiden championship in Brisbane, they triumphed on the road.
Their past seven titles were either secured at Perth Entertainment Centre, Challenge Stadium or RAC Arena.
In the first three games of the finals, Bryce Cotton had been a master distributor for Perth.
However, he stepped up for a game-high 28 points on Sunday.
Terrico White added another 20 points for Perth, along with eight rebounds and three assists, to secure the Larry Sengstock Medal as the grand final MVP.
