The run to the NBL Finals

Wildcats: 13-7 Remaining 6 Home 2 Away: The best team on the road this year with a 6-6 split and 7-1 at home. The big factor here is that Perth have 6 of their 8 games at home and only play top 4 opponents twice in their last 8 games. Most likely to secure top spot.
Taipans(A), Kings(H), Hawks(H), Taipans(H), United(H), Kings(H), Kings(A), 36ers(H)

United: 13-7 Remaining 2 Home 6 Away: Have the most evil of runs to the finals with 6 of their remaining games away and last 4 against top 4 opponents. Unless they get on a roll are probably the most likely to drop out of the Top 4.
Hawks(H), Taipans(A), Taipans(A), 36ers(A), Wildcats(A), Hawks(A), Breakers(A), Breakers(H)

Hawks: 11-7 Remaining 5 Home 5 Away: Have an even split of games going into the finals but 8 of their remaining 10 games are against United, Breakers, Wildcats and 36ers.
United(A), Kings(A) Breakers(H), Breakers(A), Wildcats(A), 36ers(H), 36ers(A), United(H), Crocs(H), 36ers(H)

Breakers: 11-7 Remaining 4 Home 6 Away. Not the best traveling team this year(3-6) and with only 4 Home games left.
36ers(H), Hawks(A), Hawks(A), Crocs(A), Taipans(A), Crocs(H), 36ers(A), Taipans(H), United(H), United(A)

36ers: 9-9 Remaining 4 Home 6 Away. 6 Away games left and with a 2-6 record on the road this year and with home games against Top 4 opponents may need to pull a rabbit out of the hat to take the #4 Spot. Breakers(A), Crocs(A), Kings(H), United(H), Hawks(A), Hawks(H), Breakers(H), Taipans(A), Hawks(A), Wildcats(A)

Predicting a top 4 of


If 36ers had more home games in hand I would probably of tipped them to pip United for the 4th spot.
