Hawks Vs Wildcats Sat 31st December

Perth looking to jumpstart their season and Hawks looking to solidify their position in the top 4. Perth severely undermanned in the guard position this match with Martin still out and JJ given the boot again. In Contrast Hawks are loaded in the backcourt with White, Clarke, Norton and Martin.

Kenny and Perth's development guards will need to step up this game to keep it close but I expect Hawks to focus on shutting down Prather and get away comfortable. Hawks to win by 9+, but wouldn't be surprised if Perth made a mockery of my tips this round to pull out a gutsy win.

Perth are going to score in the mid 60's in this game. No Johnson who was their second best offensive player and no new import this could get ugly.

The ref ruled that it bounced out of court before it hit Bragg. Which it didn't.

wtf was that a goaltend ?
Holyfield pulled the net down, which moved the rim while the ball was on it.

Cats look much more balanced with JJ gone.

No doubt he was a well liked, hard working player with some skills.

But DKD filled his position splendidly tonight and the cats looked better for it.

With Cotton coming expect less minutes for kenny and no more Bragg or wore.

Hopefully DKD gets some more burn or he'll be looking elsewhere.

Well bugger me, our coach has finally worked out a partial solution to our poor outside shooting had been on the bench the whole time, give Dexter a chance and you can see what he can do. Sure he will have a couple of brain fades from time to time, but right now he is our best option.

It looks likes we still have a pulse, if only slight, must really annoy quite a few on here :)

Tech was for abuse by AJ. Foul was for a grab on the rebound, Hawks were in the penalty, so (it's not hard to work this out) 3 shots and possession.

Yup.. Take Wroe out and put Bragg in. Bragg gives the penetration we've been screaming for. With him, Martin and Cotton, we should look a different team. They will bring Knight and McKay back into the game.
Really not been a big fan of Brandt, although maybe a penetrating guard can show me what he's capable of too.
At the moment he reminds me of Tony Ronaldson - before he was useful.
DKD also showed his value today. Want more.

For the record, I never thought JJ was right for this team, and don't believe he should have been brought back. But I do think circumstances made the decisions difficult for management.

Brandt is handy depth guy IMO. I feel like his contributions have been improving in recent games. He's tough to stop once he gets a low catch, which hopefully he will be able to do more often once we start getting some guards back.

It is hard to believe Perth had Jawai, Knight and Jervis last season. Watching Jawai and Jervis going at it you only imagine what other teams had to deal with when you throw Knight in the mix as well.

The Cats could not give Jervis what he wanted but I feel he is worse off in Brissie.

He had to uproot, go to an expansion club (essentially), and only to back up Bairstow. Even when Bairstow went down, he still had to share those minutes with Young and Petrie. And even when Petrie went down, Young still started.

All for a couple of 0,000's?

He would have been better off career wise staying.

Bit of a worry when Oscar was 5/5 threes and Perth were still within a bucket.

Some concerning turnovers and an especially costly slip in discipline from Ogilvy. He should really look at any way to remove that aspect from his game.

" the rebounded ball first hits the perth player, who is NOW out of cort , and the call is to perth"

The Perth player being out of court means he becomes part of the out of bounds area. So the ball's interpreted as landing out of court when it hits him. Since it rebounded off the Illawarra player, Perth get to inbound.

Jervis was a huge fan favourite in Perth, so we were all sad to see him leave, and Perth would no doubt be better off had he stayed.
And yes, had he stayed I think he would have eventually cemented a bigger ("starting" role) but not in the short-term.
Irony is that with Perth going a different direction with McKay, Jervis would have had a bigger role to play even this season, but he couldn't have foreseen that. It was known that Cats were either going to keep Jawai, or use the 3rd import slot to get another Centre.
I ASSUME that eventually the plan was for Knight to move to the bench, and Jervis to start alongside an import PF.
Reality is though, that in the NBL, even one year is a long time. Jervis got offered better opportunity and he took it. Had Bairstow been able to play a full season, it might not have turned out that way.

Soo, if i step completely out of bounds on defense, and then touch the ball that the offense is currently dribbling, then the ball is out of court after being touched by a part of "out of court" and thus with the offense being the last in bounds player to have touched the ball , it become my teams' ball ?? -- I think not..

But I could be wrong - just quote the rule to me and I'll accept your view as correct.
