The NBL will review its game-day operations and processes after farcical scenes led to the second half of the Cairns-Sydney clash being played without a shot clock.
Power problems at the Cairns Convention Centre on Thursday night caused the shot-clock to stop working and resulted in a 51-minute delay.
Taipans coach Adam Forde and Kings counterpart Mahmoud Abdelfattah ultimately agreed to play the remaining minutes without a shot-clock.
In a statement on Friday, the NBL said a power surge led to the failure of multiple operating systems within the venue.
"We are always looking to learn and improve our processes to ensure our game days run as smoothly as possible albeit there were circumstances out of our control in this instance," NBL chief operating officer Vince Crivelli said.
"The League acknowledges it was a difficult situation and a thorough review is already underway to look into the factors that contributed to the issues.
"We will do everything in our power to ensure the resultant issues that were in our control are not repeated and that we implement the necessary changes to prevent any future problems."
The league and venue operator will need to address the issue quickly, with the Taipans scheduled to host the New Zealand Breakers next Friday night.
Crivelli thanked Forde, Abdelfattah and their clubs for agreeing to play without shot-clock, ensuring Thursday night's contest was completed.
The Kings were leading 48-37 when the power problem occurred and went on to clinch a nail-biting affair 86-83.
Forde admitted that if the shoe was on the other foot and his side were in front, he would have argued to be handed the win by default at halftime.
"There were a lot of discussions at halftime and this is where I've got to give credit to Sydney," Forde said.
"I know if I was in their position, where I'm up 11 at halftime, I'd be arguing the case a bit more (to end the game).
"We wanted to play because we were down. If the game gets called (at halftime), they win.
"I appreciate the amazing sportsmanship shown by all of them."
