Sixers vs Breakers, 4th Jan
The Sixers had a great NYE game against Townsville and when the Sixers needed a hero to stand up, enter good guy, golf caddie to Warren Treadee and official understudy to Harry Styles, Jason Cadee. Tonight, the Sixers are back on home pine and host the Breakers, who have made way for Wollongong at the foot of the ladder.
Looks like the Breakers will be without Pledger and the Sixers without the pocket rocket in Ervin. The Breakers will be a different team to that beaten in NZ earlier in the season. Wilkinson is starting to hit his straps and went to town against Sydeney in their last game and Abercrombie is back in the groove averaging 15.3 ppg at 46% in his last 9 games. Vukona is still their leading rebounder, but will face some fierce competition tonight from a guy who once wrestled a wild boar with his bare hands because he needed to use the boar's ribcage as a basketball hoop, Mr A Petrie.
Joey was told he was too loud last game and tonight he will have 5,000 spectators to make the noise for him. The only thing louder at the stadium will be Rupert Sapwell's Hawaiian shirt.
Let's not forget the Sixers are undefeated at home this season and it is a record we hope to hold onto, and should hold onto. Sixers to win by the narrowest of margins.
