Funny Before the Game: 36ers @ Hawks

Adelaide are in Wollongong tonight to play the Hawks. After the Perth game, Centrebet actually have the Hawks as favourites, so if you're confident that the 36ers will get up, might be worth a go.

This game is one of the three best remaining opportunities (the others being against the Blaze and the final game in Singapore) for a win. All our other games are against tougher sides (Cairns twice, Brisbane twice, Melbourne once).

Tips? Can Adelaide bounce back? Will Ballinger and Dench fire in their return to Wollongong?

Regarding that Blaze matchup on February 3...

We host Brisbane Saturday night (Feb 2) and then travel the following day to GC to play that night!

If that is one of our better chances, the finals are somply not a possobility!

I have remarkably low confidence in the team for tonight, regardless that the Hawks are a horribly undermanned side. Wollongong is just about our worst hunting ground of anywhere, it seems that we can never grab a victory there. And I can't really see where the Sixers are going to find the additional energy they seemingly lacked on Wednesday night against Perth.

Wollongong by 8.

Assuming the following:

Davidson doesn't cramp up again
Ballinger isn't shut down
Hodge can make the drive 'n' dish (and we can actually sink it)
Mottram is given significant minutes

I am confident we can get up...

Heard a nice line from Mike Wilbon on Pardon the Interruption the other day (the US version of that show - you know, the good one) which I think sums up the Sixers this year: they're only good enough to break your heart.

They're not terrible with no chance of winning; nor are they really good; instead they're just good enough to tantalise you with efforts like the Kings game but heartbreakers like Perth four days later.

Hawks by 3.

I dunno anymore, we should be good enough to take this by 8-10, but, I just cant say anything with any confidence after this week.

My tip...Balls will go insane for 40+
.........Darren will light up from the 3
.........Hodge will draw a record number of fouls..and make 90% of FT
......... Coops will dominate the D
......... Voldemort will make inspired subs and time outs


At least i dont know anyone in the gong, so offensive and smarta*se phone calls and emails wont be hitting me for the next few days unlike the cats game..Im still getting cr*p over that result.

Isaac, Centrebet are out of their minds. I have no idea where they pulled that one from! That said, the rest of the lines they have up at the moment look pretty solid.

Ive been watching some other books recently and noticed that Pinny (http://www.pinnaclesports.com/League/Basketball/Aussie+NBL/127/Lines.aspx) is offering Adelaide +2.

Anyone got any idea who opens the NBL lines (ie. puts them up first)? I always presumed it was the TAB and everyone followed them, but now im not so certain.

The team that played here on saturday will belt them. but the one they played here on wednesday will lose.
I can only guess which one will turn up.
Anyways, Ballinger will play a whole lot better and that should be enough for the win.

I think their challenges (besides limiting Franklin) will be not giving up shots to Rigby or letting Tragardh score at will. Camel, I think you're right about Ballinger - Adelaide by 8.

He's been useless here all year, was shite in the game at Melbourne (ex-Tiger), and is off to a great start tonight (ex-Hawk). He's played great in the games at venues he's never called home.

I will say, overall Hawks fans are a polite and fantastic group of people, copped some friendly ribbing at the end but it was all done in jest and good humour....
