Sixers catching the Kings on the ladder

I have written down the next few fixtures to see whether Sydney can be reached within the next few fixtures. Believe it or not with a good home run Mid January I have a prediction of Adelaide 9-8 with Sydney being 9-9.

At the moment, Sixers are 5 - 6. Kings are 8 - 5.

My prediction for Sixers:

vs Crocs @H (win 6-6)
vs NZ @H (loss 6-7)
vs Crocs A (win 7-7)
vs Crocs @H (win 8-7)
vs Kings A (loss 8-8)
vs Kings @H (WIN 9-8)

My prediction for Kings:

vs Hawks @H (loss 8-6)
vs Perth @H (loss 8-7)
vs 36ers @H (win 9-7)
vs Melb A (loss 9-8)
vs 36ers A (loss 9-9)


I know it is silly to predict results so far ahead, but I do believe we can catch the Kings within the next few rounds. I have accounted for a couple of sixers losses (NZ at home and Kings away)

With Kings I believe the Hawks will fire back and have previously beaten the kings in Sydney. Perth appear to be unstoppable and still won with an average performance for 3 periods yesterday. Sydney will most likely beat us at home but hopefully run out of legs vs Melb on the same weekend away. I also believe we will beat Kings at home.

We need to win 4 of our next 6 fixtures which I believe is very achievable.

Thoughts guys?

36ers should be aiming to win every one of those games, and could do it. Aside from that late fade and even despite a number of passing mistakes, Adelaide looked in control yesterday. And that's against one of the best teams.

That's the problem. Had they beaten the bottom two teams the 36ers are 7-4 and right in the mix. Hard to predict which Adelaide team will turn up, even in a game yesterday where they were the best team they found a way to lose.

Brave predictions, considering how well the Kings played against NZ and will get James Harvey back in a couple of weeks. Amazing how people keep underestimating Sydney - no way will they be 9-9 after the next run of games. 12-6 or 11-7 at worst is more likely.

I dont think 36ers will get 3-0 against the crocs. Probably 2-1, pencil in the game in Townsville as a loss. Might be able to snag the NZ @ home game though if Gibson can shut down Cedric Jackson like he did to Lisch and avoid foul trouble, cant see why not.

Also highly doubt the Kings will go 1-4 in that stretch. Heal has them playing very well and they have proven they can beat Hawks & 36ers, Melbourne should be a given and if Madgen and Henry can find a way around Perth's defence then they could beat the Wildcats too. I would put them at 3-2 in that stretch.

Wow 1836er, your extremely optimistic!

I don't see Adelaide finishing in the top four this season unless drastic changes are made.

I reckon the top 4 is locked in already unfortunatly, the rest of the teams seem too far back, including 36ers unfortunatly, plenty of games to go, but we cant win the games we need to so cant see us making it, unless coaching change occurs and/or our new import is a star.

Great job by Hammer and Geordie, both teams probably wouldnt have been picked to make the 4.

1836er...

I believe the way the Kings are going, they will likely beat WOL and MEL in your list of games.

It is also EXTREMELY presumptuous to think ADL with go 3-0 against TSV.

Neville is finding his groove being the primary inside target, Ervin is finding form again, and Crawford is flopping unbelievably well.

Look out.

1836er, you equation is missing 1 "minor" component. Sydney is coached by Heal, Adelaide is coached by Clarke.
