Firstly, Perth's defensive pressure tonight was unbelievable.
Welcome back Redhage. Just as automatic as he's always been.
Impressive first half by Wagstaff and Lisch.
Warren: can't be too disappointed with that effort. Impressive shooter. Struggled a lot with Martin and Robbins' defense at times, but showed good control, speed and shooting. Noone wanted to shoot, so can't judge his 2 assists to harshly.
Weigh: struggled a bit. Shots weren't dropping and Perth obviously know hoe to play him. 10 rebounds and missed some gettable shots, so could have easily with other things going his way had a good line tonight.
DJ: battled hard. Nice spin moves, could have finished better at times perhaps. 15 and 8 is an ok line. Probably could have gone to him more. Could be a force this year
Herbert: foul trouble all night. Lisch made him look amateur. Looks slow and was beaten far too easily. Fouled when it wasn't necessary. Not impressed.
Ng: 9 minutes? We had 8 players, get him out there FFS, at least he might take a shot.
Helliwell: finding it hard to assess his game. Looked scared to shoot at times. Hook shots weren't falling. Big body who worked hard. Wasn't great by any stretch, but not our worse.
Crosswell: hmm... Don't know.
Creek: still can't shoot, doesn't have any discernable moves. Didn't fit tonight.
Expected to lose. Expected more than that.
Perth were impressive, but not that impressive
Ballinger needs to get out there asap. New import better be good.
