re: Cairns Taipans V.S Melbourne Tigers

I thought Leaving Wilson off the court for that extended period in the 3rd quarter changed the game. That's when Cairns turned the ball over 3 times in a row without even getting into their offence and the Tigers went from playing catch-up to playing catch-me-if-you-can.

I was wondering whether Wilson had been injured, given he stayed off until the Tigers got 5 points ahead. About a 10-0 or 12-0 run? Especially as Cairns clearly couldn't run their offence without him.

Tigers defence didn't win them the game. Cairns lost themselves the game. The tigers play such undisciplined and selfish basketball. Gouldings shot selection should be dragged.....instead it seems to be encouraged. The 2 imports are clearly all about points and it shows. 3 rebounds from Scott in 38 mins is appalling. The amount of one out basketball from the tigers is really hard to watch. They were lucky today and if they do happen to make finals it will purely be to make up numbers.

Thought Wilson and Edwards started pretty good .
Later , Flynn and Scott got going .
Perhaps those 4 the main interst to watch . this game out there today .
Some viewers call it Timeoutsville .
Seems 'everyone can make the finals , other than the Adelaide 36ers , of course ' - they mentioned on Ch10 coverage of this game .

@KingJames Nailed it.

Should just dispense with the prelims and make it a best of 7 between NZ & Perth.

Far more entertaining.

The Taipans decided towards the end that Melbourn were nice guys so they let them win, or something like that.
