IT took four overtime periods but a leg-weary Melbourne United have outlasted the Illawarra Hawks in a remarkable NBL season-opener to claim a nailbiting 123-122 win on Friday night in Wollongong.

Melbourne led by nine with seven minutes remaining in regulation before the Hawks bravely fought back to force overtime.

But it took a further three extra periods before a result was finally determined.

It was just the second time in NBL history that a game required four overtimes to determine a result.
