R18: Sixers @ Perth

The Sixers are in Perth (presumably have had a great time mopedding around Freo and Rottnest) and probably catching up with "The Situation".

What an interesting game this could be. The Sixers have been Perth's bogie team but last time they met Perth won by 6. In that game The Sixers were up at half time and when the Wildcats applied a press, their thought processes went from Yoda to Jar Jar Blinks in a matter of plays.

There's no doubt this will be a tough game against a tough opponent. Let's hope the Sixers have their head in the game.

Early last season Perth fans were wondering whether they'd beat the 36ers by 20 or 30 , while in Adelaide the talk was if Clarke went 0-6 , he'd be replaced , although that was realy bringing in Maher Stirling Davis to help , and that was 1 of his 7 wins from 11 games against Perth .
Perth against Townsville , in Perth , about 2 weeks ago , Perth fans thought the refs were pretty good , although the way Adelaide are playing now , I'd kinda think it's really weird if they won .

36ers were always going to lose that last match vs. the Wildcats: Perth were getting good looks all game and just weren't knocking them down consistently until the 4th.

From what I remember I thought the 36ers coped with Perth's press (as usual), but couldn't bury them in a half-court game.

Then of course, late in the 4th Marty waited until we'd lost the lead entirely to call a timeout.

Wildcats by 15.

Why did Adelaide keep doubling the ball handler in the last 2 mins trying to force a turnover when Perth would just pass to the open man under the hoop!?!? This resulted in 4 straight lay ups!!!

Even when Sixers got it to 3 with 32 secs, they just needed to play solid d, get a stop and have a chance to tie. No, Adelaide come out of the time out, play the exact same d that has crumbled on the previous 3 plays and allow Perth an easy lay up after doubling the ball handler near half court. Game over...

Who's decision was it to get the players to keep doubling the ball handler when there was no need to, nor foul, just get a stop. Cambyman, that one surely must be on the coaches!?

So disappointing to see talented players loosen up at the end of games they're down in and play free flowin ball, stop adhering to the pathetic structures of Clark and Ratman and score the friggin ball. New season and new coaches can't come on soon enough....

re: R18: Sixers @ Perth

Unsurprising result really, as has been so common this season, the 36ers offence grinds to a halt when it matters in the 4th. Clarke's offense is unable to get the sixers high quality shots when the intensity in the 4th increases. The fact this has happened in nearly all of our losses this season shows his shortcomings as a coach and his failure to make adjustments at critical points in the game. It also shows the difference between having a guy like Lisch who can create his own shot and bail his team out when needed and having a guy like Christopherson who is..... well..... Crap.

This sixers team is first and foremost in need of a new coach but after that, the next priority should be a perimeter player - probably an import that can create his own shot when the offence breaks down. Apart from that, I don't think a whole lot of changes need to be made.

The refs did hurt the sixers also in the first 5 mins of that 4th quarter when the game was won by Perth. The Wildcats are allowed to get away with far too much contact which makes for very ugly basketball. I hate to admit it but I agreed with Carfino when he was saying the refs needed to man up and start calling fouls and if they don't the basketball will get uglier and uglier and scoring will get lower and lower.

Losing 13 of the last 14 games.....I don't remember a worse sixers stretch

Some things I don't understand.

Daly having a good creative game in the first half, virtually no time on court in the second half (none in last quarter), yet with the game on the line, Clarke starts with Christopherson and Croswell in the last quarter who had done almost nothing. Bit like earlier in the season when Creek was our top scorer in the first half and only came on in the second half with 3 minutes to go when the game had been lost and Gibson got fouled out.

Why all season has the team been exposed under the basket when Schencher runs out continually to/past the 3 point line?

He is OK within 2 metres of the basket, but I close my eyes every time he chases out, because I know the opposition will often have a good close to basket scoring opportunity as a result.

Why does Gibson finally get aggressive at the offensive end when we are behind in the last 5 minutes, too much structure?

I thought accountability began with everyone, not just the players. How wrong I was!

In every other sport played around the world, if a team has such a defensive structure that is so complex in every facet and the players dont get it, who's to blame? The players or the coach?

In the first game for Christopherson, I mentioned to the man sitting beside that he looks totally lost when in defence. And still to this day, he seems lost. So Christopherson is somewhat accountable, but those who put in place these structures, and more accountable.

Lets see? In a Marcus Camby world, its the players who must be totally accountable.
In every other world, 95% would be the coach and perhaps a small percentage aimed at the players WHEN they dont follow through.

MY GOD! It aint rocket science even for those who are 'children of the gods'. Gees

Common sense and initiative have been banned as part of team rules. Hence playing for a 2 pointer with 32 seconds to go. Hence leaving Cadee on on the last 2minutes of the game, Daly has been a point guard in more Grand Finals then Cadee ever will.

This really was a very ugly game and not a great advertisement for basketball. Both teams shot terribly and quite frankly Adelaide were lucky that Perth missed the amount of shots they did, especially some threes that they would normally knock down.

For some reason Perth have not shot the ball at all well when playing Adelaide in Perth recently.

It's pretty obvious what cost Adelaide tonight. Perth out-rebounded Adelaide 49 to 29 and had double the offensive rebounds. Perth were able to cancel out some of their poor shooting because Adelaide could not play "complete" defence and rebound the ball. It is completely unacceptable that Adelaide get outrebounded by such a total. It's not as if they are playing undersized or without any big men.

Part of rebounding is about how much you want the ball. The players should be able to self-motivate themselves to some degree however good coaches tend to instill some passion, desire and accountability into their players and drive them to play harder, including getting on the boards. There's something very wrong when your team gets out-rebounded by such a big margin.

re: R18: Sixers @ Perth

I got sick of seeing Perth get so many offensive rebounds and 2nd, 3rd chances even though their shooting was bad, but I ask again, one of the reasons is the defensive structure that has Schenscher chasing players especially quick players out near the 3 point line, he is totally ineffectual out there, they breeze past and set up a cutter (Knight etc) near the basket time and time again when our other covering big etc has to rotate. If Perth miss quite often we just did'nt have players in the right (blocking) positions to get rebounds.

I'm sorry, although I used to be a fan of his I noted that we started to get back into the game (too late again as usual) after Schenscher went off in the last quarter.

Our 3 point (and outside 2 point) shooting was also a factor - at one stage we were 1 from 12 from 3pt land.

Rat10 a Perth almost always shoot badly , against everyone. Last night I think they ended up about their season average FG percentage. And yes - it was an ugly game and not a good advertisement for NBL. But Pert's games often are. They seem to play a brand of basketball that is the end result of the defensive style that Goorjian's teams were renowned for developing. It's no surprise that even the commentators, who are meant to talk up the product, were lamenting how rough the NBL has become and the consequent impact on shooting percentages and scoring overall.

To be as stubborn as he has been by sticking to the same doomed plan, despite his continuous failure is despicable and smacks of someone who has no heart in his position. If he did have heart, he would have done the right thing by the club and walked out knowing he had nothing left to give. The fans who are still sticking by the club despite all the criticism and negativity to the coach, and despite the shameful record of the last 3 seasons, are the ones who have heart.

That's a good point about Schenscher, Willie. Schenscher and his team-mates need to look at what Bogut does in the NBA. He just accepts that it is more important for him to defend the rim than to close out to jumpshooters.

I thought Schenscher did a nice job in either the second or third quarters until he gave up that unsportsmanlike on Redhage.

I feel a bit sorry Schenscher at times, because the refereeing in this league is a disgrace, never moreso than in Perth. Players are allowed to bulldoze through him, grab him, push him with impunity, seemingly because they are 'smaller' than him. As soon as he throws his weight around though they call it as though he is bullying the little guy.

Its not really in his nature, but I just think he needs to send a message to players who foul him relentlessly by fouling them HARD next time they come near the basket. Show them why its a bad idea to mess with a 7ft, 250lb redhead!

Same with DJ - although I liked that he shoved Matt Knight out of bounds on one play. He should do that more often!

I thought the Sixers played reasonably well last night, but they were simply woeful on the boards and that was the one thing that cost them the game.

Do a half-decent job on the boards against Perth and you will beat them every time because their shooting is so bad, they need 30% more shots than their opponent to win a game. That's why the Breakers will win the NBL title AGAIN this season.

Its pretty depressing that the best Australian team of the last four years is this Perth side. The only things they do well is play defence and out-hustle their opponents. If the refs actually called the games properly though that hustle would be curbed by the fact that several of their team would foul out every game and their opponent would shoot about 15 more free throws than them!

Would love to see the Sixers of the late 90s or the Wildcats of the early 90s play this current Wildcats team. They would destroy the 2013 Wildcats.

Have the game called properly by the FIBA rules and Perth are probably still the second best team in the league, but with way less blowout victories and less victories altogether.

It's tough to match up against them because you have to change your style from what would be allowed against another team, while Perth have the benefit of playing that style every game so get to play in their comfort zone.

Does anyone even care anymore about the 6ers results under the current coaching panel? Ive shut down all care factor until next season when hopefully a decent coach is recruited. Lets be honest SOS had there chance to rid themselves of the cancer that is Clarke and Radford and stayed with them...

They dont care, as a fan I dont care.

Marcus Camby - "As I said earlier, Marty has little influence whether the player chase Jennifer or Tom.

Its something in your own make up (and early basketball development) not a new concept to be taugt @ NBL level."

Marcus, I know you're only trolling and don't believe a word of what you post, but I can't help responding.

You have just sunk to a new level of dumb with the above quote.

@RIP 36ers 2012/13...

Unfortunately you are not alone....many 'fans' don't care about the team anymore (I'm sure they'll get back on the bandwagon in the good times though) , hence the position the team is in.

Imagine how good this team could be backed by a fan base that cared, attended games regularly and didn't boo the team.

We didnt boo then last season or the season before that.
What was the reason for for finishing bottom and 2nd to bottom MARCUS ?

I don't think the fans are booing the players

@Fartus Bambi The teams being on a horrendous losing streak has nothing to do with being backed by a "fan base that cared"

It is an illogical assumption that the level of a teams play and coaching will increase in accordance with the amount of support they receive.

So if a team of ten year olds had the full support of a 100 000 seat stadium, they could win the NBL title?

re: R18: Sixers @ Perth

I've said that before JT. The few the do boo are booing Marty.

Marcus just uses it for a reason to deflect the real reason
why the 6ers are losing. Apprently nothing to do with the
style of play the coaching panel has installed. The terrible import
situation for 3 seasons, the rotations, the disgusting offenses that do not
untilize the skill of the players we have and the lack of a plan B.

Marcus has said that Marty is not without his faults.
Never states them though....

Over to you Marcus. We are all waiting for what you think his faults
are and how you think the 6ers can improve?

And Marty will not be coach next season. So who do you think should coach
the 6ers?

re: R18: Sixers @ Perth

I was at the Breakers game, I'm a season ticket holder, east stand row G seat 43 and I booed so hard I nearly fainted. It wasn't at the team if was at the team and the coaches!

I have every right to boo with the crap they dished up that night. Let me ask you this Marcus.. What would you do if you paid good money and went to a concert at the entrainment centre and the band didn't play good on the night? They played out of tune, the singer missed the words then they stopped playing early?

You would boo hard as well. I've been to a game at Madison Square Garden in NYC and the Knicks got booed at quarter time. And they were only down by 6!!!!!

This is professional sport, perform of get the F out!

As mentioned above I have lost all interest in this squad with Marty at the helm, losses are easy to take I was actually happy last night with a Perth 1-10 score line.

Bye bye Croswell, Schencher, SC, pero, I think Gibbo will leave also.

Keep Petrie, DJ, Creek, Caddee is a good backup, weigh comes off the bench, get 2 stud imports, Daly 10th man

Marty Clarke you are a joke! You have turned this once proud club into the Richmond tigers of the NBL where mediocrity is accepted.

I wish the 36ers were the Richmond of the NBL. They only finished a couple of games out of the 8 the last 2 years.

To be 3/4 of the way through the season and still have a good chance of making the finals would be a dream come true!

But I understand what you're getting at The croc.

Is Clarke playing Daly more now cos he fears for his job and needs local support?

@Vespa..

I have been challeneged multiple times to name Marty's faults (probably by you) and I have bitten and answered at least twice (probably to you).

I shouldn't need to answer this again and again.

@The Croc...

You pay your 'good money' to support your team and be entertained to a great game of basketball.

Both were achieved in that NZB game, wouldn't you rather an exciting close game with lead changes rather than 6'ers thrashing them for 21 points?

You DON'T pay your 'good money' for guaranteed Sixer wins.

I don't know what type of sense of entitlement is taught in your household, but that is rather over the top.

And no...I would not boo hard as well....I would cheer the team on even more.

And booing the coach is also booing the players, these players PROUDLY represent Marty, as does Marty them. This is why this team is so close knit and this legacy will be missed if Marty leaves.

I don't mind if you don't care about the team and bet aginst them, your right of course, but please just pay your money, enjoy the game and not be an embarassment to the Sixer organisation.
