The Manawatu Jets finished their season on a streak of five wins in a row after thrashing the Super City Rangers 112-76 in Auckland this afternoon.

The strong finish to the season sees the Jets finish in fifth place, just one win outside of the top four with nine wins and nine losses.

The win came off the back of two massive middle quarters, which the Jets won 63-34.

The Rangers couldn't keep up with the Jets' scoring and the visitors also dominated the rebounding battle 55 to 36.

Paul Jones (26 points), Troy McLean (24) were found their range from deep, sinking four and six three pointers respectively for Manawatu.

Centre Nick Horvath had a double-double of 22 points and 14 rebounds, point guard Brandon Jenkins had his own double-double of 13 points and 11 assists and forward Jeremiah Trueman grabbed 14 boards.

Rangers guard and the competition's leading point scorer Jason Cadee led their scoring with 19 points, Houston O'Riley 15 and Cameron Stuart 12, but there wasn't much else apart from Dillon Boucher's 11 rebounds, eight assists and five points.

Manawatu Jets 112 (Paul Jones 26, Troy McLean 24, Nick Horvath 22/14 rebounds, Brandon Jenkins 13/11 assists, Alonzo Burton 12, Jeremiah Trueman 14 rebounds) Super City Rangers 76 (Jason Cadee 19, Houston O'Riley 15, Cameron Stuart 12) Q1: 24-19, HT: 57-36, Q3: 87-53, FT: 112-76.

What do you make of LeBron James' decision to return to Cleveland?

It's a good call and makes perfect sense. He's an Ohio boy

He should have stuck with the Miami Heat

Who cares? I'm all about the Breakers

Cavs fans will never forgive him for leaving them the first time
