Friday Night on One HD: Crocs Vs. Blaze

Townsville Crocodiles Vs. Gold Coast Blaze @ TSV Entertainment Centre.

Game has major playoff implications for both clubs. With Townsville facing the top two NBL sides in their final two clashes after this one, this is really a must win for the Crocs.

Gold Coast have only ever beaten Townsville once in North Queensland, and that was in their first ever contest against the Crocs years ago.

Crocs are the only team to beat the Blaze in their last 11 matches.

Still, Deleon is hot and so are the Blaze.

Your picks?

Sportsbet has Crocs $1.67 to Blaze $2.20.

Key Matchups:

Gill vs DeLeon - blinding speed versus veteran savvy. Whoever gets the upperhand here may decide the game.

Holmes vs Petrie - two of the most efficient, underappreciated bigs in the league go head to head. I want both of these guys on my team.

Mims vs Worthington - Mims has thrived since he started coming of the bench several rounds ago, while Wortho has struggled all season.

Crawford vs Goulding - Crawford has been struggling with his shot lately, but: http://www.nbl.com.au/blaze/news/article///vote-chris-goulding-for-gold-coasts-sexiest-list/

'nuff said.

Damn, I have been misinformed, haha.

Mods change title please?

What a pointless game to have on television though.

The battle for third place is on the line and we have to watch this?

Not really buying that, and while I'm a homer here, the Blaze haven't one in Townsville for a couple of years, and Townsville just killed them in an AWAY match in the middle of their streak.

If you look at how these teams match up Townsville has the edge, IMO.

Look for Schenscher to finish with at least five assists as he expertly passes out of the double team time and again.

Goulding looks like an emo goth.

I always sledge him with "Sasha Vujicic wants his hair back you pansy".

Gibson off to a hot start.

Crocs need to slow this game down.

Schenscher cannot be stopped by this Gold Coast team though. Hopefully once they start over playing him he starts hitting the shooters.

Crocs need to slow this game down baaaaad.

Turn it into a grind and you'll kill them.

Instead, they're getting destroyed right now.

Haha Gold Coast are the most hateable team in the league since Heal and Barlow and Wortho teamed up for Sydney.

Deleon just trying to fight Schenscher and then pulling the big fella's hair is the funniest shit I've seen in a while. Unbelievable that a grown man would do that. So good.

You guys are missing out so much with this not being on ONE.

However Crocs MVP for the night goes to Mark Worthington. On ya Wortho. Love'd that T after the four point play you gave to PC.

I believe there are plenty of words to be eaten by the southern media/fans right now.

What win streak?

Worthington is a fcuking cancer ... He's a lazy selfish bum ... I couldn't stand to be on the same team as that wanker ...

I personally don't like this much player blaming and abuse. Wright has been doing it all season.
