Sixers Run Home

The Run home (12 games) is:

Sun 13/1: Vs Sydney. Could get a win here.
Sun 20/1: Vs Breakers. Could be up by 21 early based on history.
Sun 27/1: @ Melbourne. Could Johnny Flynn catch on fire again?
Fri 1/2 Vs 'Gong.
Fri 8/2 @ Perth. Voodoo time?
Sun 10/2 Vs Melbourne.
Sat 16/2 @ Cairns
Fri 22/2 @ 'Gong
Thu 28/2 @ Breakers
Sat 9/3 Vs Cairns
Fri 15/3 @ Cairns
Sat 22/3 @ "Gong

5 Home, 7 away. Probably should go 3-0 against Cairns. Melbourne will be the Barometer and 7 of those games are against teams in the Top 4. Those top 4 teams are a combined 19 & 7 at home and 21 & 13 away.

Maybe it's a clever ploy to start smashing these top 4 teams late in the season, gain momentum and get a flag.

Considering a good run is needed to make finals, what are people thoughts?

re: Sixers Run Home

History has shown that you need to win around 15 games to make the top 4. Which means they need to win 10 out of the last 12 games to have a chance.

Sure they COULD do it.

But I doubt they will.

We should have gone 4-0 against Crocs.

They are a very different team with Neville now and it is no coincidence he went there and they were 0-10 !!

I think we should win at least half.

With current coaching and culture in place, this team wont win more than 4 more times if they are lucky. Its just the sad reality of why there has been so many 'sack the coach' threads. Fans are aware there is nothing left Clarke can bring out in this team, that should be top 1-4.

re: Sixers Run Home

Not sure I agree we can keep saying we should be Top 4. Clearly we are not and we are miles away and although I myself am not a Marty fan ( not a hater but not a fan) if these players were all as good as we thought we wouldn't be here.

Poor shooting, poor D. etc etc.

I only saying this because we have lost so many by 4 or 5 or less. That's these supposed super players getting a poor 31 percent instead of 29.
Or missing 11 free throws instead of 16 or getting 6/21 from the arc instead of 4.

Left it too late lot of games we have been leading only to let it go in 3rd or 4th,unless a miracle happens to win our last 12 games ,mid season slump after an impressive first game win at home.at our rate we likely to finish 5th or 7th.

AGAIN no finals.

Guys...

I think the Sixers can give it a decent shot.

Look at the Crox...the fans never gave up on Woolpert...now they have the LONGEST winning streak in the NBL.

But the fans have to get behind their Head Coach.

The fans in TSV seem louder than @ ADL despite havin a worse record.

And they don't boo their own team.

Marcus- I think the crocs early woes had alot to do with their import troubles, plus the fact Ben Allen was their starting centre.

Woolpert had taken them within one game of advancing to the GF series against the eventual champion in previous season. Deserved half a chance.

Once Ervin and Neville settled in, they started to look good, made improvement. Bare in mind, 4 out of 5 wins came against Sixers.

IMO, team is playing worse. Don't think you can refer to crocs recent fortune as the glimour of hope for the team. Different scenario, IMO.
