The Northern Mystics have held off a second half fightback to beat the Canterbury Tactix 57-56 in Auckland.

The Mystics led by seven at half time, and though they never lost the lead, were pushed close by the bottom-of-the-table visitors.

The Aucklanders go to the top of the ANZ Championship, with seven wins from nine games, ahead of the bye in round ten.
