NBL: Cairns-Brisbane blackout result stands

At 3:58pm local time the power was lost to the Stadium and the game was stopped with 1:31
remaining in the 4th quarter with the score being (Cairns) 76 - (Brisbane) 84.
At 4:30pm local time the NBL made the decision to abandon the game with no prospect of an
immediate resolution being available. Power was restored at 5:15pm local time.
This morning the NBL reviewed the result due to a formal protest from the Cairns Taipans. After careful consideration the NBL has determined that the result will stand as per the scores at the time the game was abandoned.
