Australasian influence in the NBA

Watching 76ers v OKC right now and noticed that 5 players had seen the court with links to Australasia (as well as Brett Brown as coach):
Ben Simmons and Jonah Bolden (Aussie)
Steven Adams (Kiwi)
Terrance Ferguson and James Ennis (NBL alumni)

Does anyone know of an NBA game with more Australiasian influence?

Might've got close with one starting with Ingles and Exum, or Mills and Baynes (were they ever at Spurs with Brown assisting?). Delly and Kyrie at Cavs together for a bit. Bogut at Cavs for a minute too. Delly and Maker with the Bucks. Anyone else?

Agreed, Isaac.

I'm sure there were lots of games with 2 Aussies v 2 Aussies, but I couldn’t think of a 5th or 6th component. (I wasn’t going to include Brown when he was only assisting.)

If only the Asians were pulling their weight we'd have more.
