36ers vs Taipans, Oct 25

I think it will be a tight game with my Sixers winning by 3 in OT Johnson to have 25 and 10.

Tough streach for the 36ers, should be a good test for them aswell playing 4 games in as many days. They would not wana come back 0 and 3. Think tiapans at home, all depends on the outside shooting, tipans have a big front court to match up with 36ers hoping for a good game though

The competition is VERY tight and so away games like these are the ones that premiership winning teams win on the road.

Jamar Wilson / Gary Ervin - what an exciting tussle that will be!
Former Mt Isa Boy Stevie Weigh has returned to FNQ and after a shocker in game 1 will be looking to sink the Sixers, but will he try too hard?
After snaring Rookie of the year, this season is shaping up to be Gliddon's magnum opus with a sizzling performance in game 2.

Loughton and Tragagh will be dangerous as always.

I was impressed with how the Sixers got things done last game. The first half was a bit of a loosener upper, but the second half was when they shone. Frye was the star and he was very slick. The different playing style from last year will surprise the Taipans. My only criticism would be that I would have liked to see Teys brought into the game a bit more just in case the Sixers had foul troubles.

The key may be in the new reffing approach which is producing a lot of higher scoring games as it favours the offense. The grippy holding defensive styles have gone out the door! It will take some time to get used to and the talls seem to be the fall guys. We saw a lot of fouls called in the Perth/NZB game and the team who is more aggressive in attacking the basket will be the winner tonight. The coaches may be using a bit of marker pen drawing up more aggressive offensive plays, which will only be more exciting for fans.

I think the Sixers may be faster in transition. Does anyone have any +/- stats on Gibbo Cadee Creek Frye Johnson combo? (Gibbo might be the weak link in that 5 on transition...)

My tip. Hang onto your hat. This should be within 2 shots for most of the last quarter and won't be a case of winning, but who loses a play.

Wright > Fearne. Sixers by 2.

I'm hoping for 2 things out of tonight. A 36ers win, and for Mitch Creek to show up Stephen Weigh (ok, 3 things, I hope if he does show him up that Marty Clarke and the garden gnome are watching the game on TV).

Last season we might have come out of this road trip 0-3, but this year we're a good chance of at least coming out of it 2-1, possibly 3-0.

Adelaide win by 3. Can the commentators get any dumber. They didn't even know the rules at the end when a foul was called after a shot. The guy didn't know if cairns had any time outs left with 2 seconds left. These guys get paid?

Thought JVG's commentary was good actually.

I was impressed by Cairns, but even more by Adelaide. Very even spread of scorers with all starters in double figures, plus fought back from a deficit twice. FT shooting was an issue, but they won regardless. Gliddon out, but Cairns were at home. I think this is the sort of win that the 36ers of old wouldn't have grabbed and will be a real confidence boost.

Even when they were down by 16 or so, you could see that they still had confidence and were united. Seems like a good group and Wright is a refreshing change as coach.

Cairns lose by 3 without Gliddon and Weigh going 0-10. I'd be upset with the loss but not concerned at this stage. They will still be thereabouts as will the 6ers. I think Creek needs to show who can do this sort of stuff on a regular basis before he can be called anything close to a "complete player". The biggest problem for Creek is getting the minutes as Frye will take a lot of the 3 spot time. Wouldn't get him as many "w"s but the Hawks would have been the place for him as Sav's heir apparent.
Looks like Joey has seen what we all have. DJ is a spud at the defensive end. I think his minutes will be reduced but Adelaide will benefit from this in the win column.

Confusing slightly unsatisfying game. Agree Sixers of past couple of years would have found ten ways to lose that, particularly with the unclutch free throw shooting. That has to be one of Ervin's poorest games? Just seemed out of it. DJ, similarly, but worse.

Should have been a solid win! Leaving 15 points at the fouls line is pretty unacceptable.

But they did was was needed to win, and fuck me but how about Stevie weigh? What a dud, glad creek took it too him tonight and showed the nbl that Marty Clarke was a twat and creek is worth his weight in gold purely based on energy!

Ervin will come back, bit of an odd night for a superstar like him!

Good win but the worry was our first and third quarters with only 15 and 10 points respectively. Good thing we scored 30 and 32 in the second and last. But as they said in commentary on One, the game went in quarters. Theirs, ours, theirs and finally ours.

Mitch was our hightst scorer with 14, but we had 6 players (Gibbo, Ervin, Frye, Peach, DJ & Mitch) in double figures, Big Red not far off on 8 points.

Jason Cadee had a poor night for him. 11:59 court time, only took one shot (a three) which he missed, 1 rebound, 1 assist and 2 turnovers. Ervin too had an off night, but he did get it going in the last period.

Only 21/36 (58%) free throws.....15 points missed. We won the rebounds 38-35 and shot at 47% compared to Cairns 41%.

Overall it was a good win but there is still a lot of room for improvement.

Bring on the Tigers on Sunday. Pity that game isn't on Ten, that's Perth @ Sydney.

very impressed with Joey's coaching.

After working out our bigs could not score easily then he worked offences for others.

also impressed with his subbing, and the different groups of players he put out there to do different jobs at different times.

so great having a real good match coach to watch.

The impressive thing is Mitch's development as the Number 6 guy to Question Mark ? starting line-up.

Steven Weigh could have blazed with glory for his new team yet blazed in every other fashion to score 2 free throws for the game. Disappointing for him, great for us with 0/10 from field and that missed 3 which won it for us.

The question mark also looms with the game against Melbourne on Sunday, returning home then flying out to NZ, then flying home for a horror stretch of 4 games inside 9 days. Id hope with a win against Melbourne, then if NZ is a loss, then hey...., 2 out of 3 aint bad. Even 2-2 is good, 1 away win and one home win (Sydney).

Guess will find out soon

Great game Sixers, well coached by Joey. In the last qtr when the game was tied he subbed on DJ who in the first possession on the court lost his man on a back door cut to put us down by 2, next play down the court DJ throws a wild shot that just hits the backboard then Cairns go down and score. Joey called time and after 20 seconds on the floor DJ was told to sit for the rest of the game. Marty would never do that, he would've called time then ran a play for DJ next possession.

That's the "game time coaching" that Clarke was so poor at.

Thank [email protected] for a clever coach!

6ers 11+ Sunday get on it.

That stretch was typical DJ. No D, chucking up shit shots hoping to be bailed out. Glad to see his arse sit down, he's a cancer if your goal is to win. Lucky he got that call when it was 83 to 79.

Despite the fact that the current 36ers team does have a number of pissheads which is a concern it doesn't excuse the fact that Weigh has always been overrated. Can't create his own shot, is a poor decision maker and is weak in the low block when he has a miss match. Glad to see the back of him. As a 6th/7th man off the bench he's a great pick-up, but for his role and price tag he's a waste of time.

Cairns actually looking alright. Both teams will be in the hunt for a playoff spot.

Picking up road games like that is going to be absolutely vital given the evenness of the league.

Ervin hasn't really discovered his form from the previous stints just yet but he will be fine. Frye looked smooth. Anthony is going to have to play some minutes this year i think. Actually prefer the balance of him and Schenscher together.

What is everyone's problem with Weigh ? Super nice guy, solid team man. Just needs a serious confidence boost i think or he could risk being one of those guys that never quite lives up to his potential. Good luck to him.

Cairns have really smart tough hardworking bigs,
so Cairns are always going to be a tough gig for DJ and Luke.
Tough also for our point guards.

But when their wing defenders are guys like Stevie Weigh, you know its going to be party time for Mitch Creek and Jarrid Frye.

You know if Gliddon was playing Creek would never have got those two open threes? That's all Cairns were missing last night, a perimeter defender. Game wouldn't have got back within 10 points if they had Gliddon playing.

Was out and around Creek once while he was injured. Don't think he even touched alcohol - seems pretty disciplined with his approach to me.

They all look a lot more united on court under Wright than they ever did under Marty.

Great to get the win but a very worrying game that it could have been so easily lost in the last 19 seconds. How we could let Cairns score so prolifically in that short stretch of time is beyond me. The last 2 seconds with Cairns making the 3 point shot could have seen this game go the other way in overtime. The missed free throws were extremely worrying. Could have had another 15 points on the scoreboard and won the game comfortably. This seriously needs to be addressed as games like this one in the future will see its fair share of losses. You can't get lucky all the time on such close games.

I would be surprised if Creek hit the alcohol in a big way during the season (could be wrong), considering he is into his PT and pretty fit. Also they have to log their nutrition and have tests so if they were off the wagon it would show up pretty quickly.

Just because those guys have a life and go to nightclubs doesn't mean they get on the turps.

I think last night showed the difference between Joey Wright's coaching, and that we got served up by Marty Clarke.

DJ was off his game last night. I'm a fan of DJ and I think he can be one of the dominant bigs in the NBL, but when he's off his game he has a bad habit of putting up silly shots (usually hoping to draw a foul), while his D, which has improved a bit, becomes non-existent. Joey saw this and quite rightly benched him using Schenscher, Peach and Anthony as our bigs. Clarke would have kept him and other non-performers (such as his golden child Stephen Weigh) on the court while others who might have helped us win cooled their heels on the bench.

I wouldn't say any of the 36ers were 'hot' last night (maybe Mitch Creek was), but Joey wright is no dummy and he had our best performers on the court when the game was on the line. A far cry from what we've had to put up with in the past few seasons.

Steven Weigh's worst crime was marty clarke loved him. No doubt he didnt perform as we expected or wanted particularly offensively but i dont think you could question the guys effort. dont get why people want to stick the boot in.

The sixers foul shooting will cost us games this year for sure.

The way the ref's are calling the games this year is less frustrting and the games are a far better spectacle

@ Roger Murdoch, the big problem with Stephen Weigh was that he didn't really justify the court time Clarke gifted him. And part of that was effort. A lot of the time he was out there doing next-to-nothing while others who were performing were getting subbed in and out with frequency (or just left on the bench). Most of his stats seemed to come in 'junk time' in the final period when a game was (usually) already lost. When it mattered he often went missing, when it didn't matter he suddenly came alive.

2011-12 - 28 games, 31+ mins per game. 11.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists.
2012-13 - 28 games, 32+ mpg, 11.6 pts, 3.6 rebs, 4.9 ass.

With those minutes he should have done more than he did. I've got no doubt he has the talent to be a leading SF in the NBL, but it seems he doesn't have the on-court work ethic at this stage.
