2014 GF Series - Game 2
Friday 11th @ Adelaide Arena
The Sixers host the Cats in the return bout of this series. Cats go in 1 up after surviving a last quarter onslaught. If Cat fans think the Sixers are just going to give Martin a pair of scissors to cut down our nets.....well you are very much mistaken. You can dream on babies, 'cos this is going all the way. If you want a pair of nets to hang on the wall of Nick Marvin's office, you can cut down your own! Perth fans better raid their kid’s piggy banks, check their sofa for loose change and check their FIFO schedules - there will be a game 3, and this series is not over until the last flop has been made.
The Sixers have the best home record this season and I have been reliably informed there are only a few seats left (Tues night) Even the development player’s seats have been taken and there’s a few standing spots left in the bars (3 drink minimum) The floor wipers are normally let in free, forget it! The eBay auction just finished and that was the only way four blokes on a buck’s show got a ticket. If you have not got a ticket already, the only place to find a seat come Friday will be Steve Carfino’s lap. Robert Hughes has an excuse not to be there. I’ve got my ticket, have you? As one chap said "Easiest way to guarantee tickets to 36ers games is to become a member"
This will be noisy, not slightly noisy, not Jule’s Disco noisy, this will be noisier than ACDC with their speakers turned up to 12. No, probably noiser! If the Cat’s players want to see just how noisy the Adelaide Crowd can be, just test us with a flop, go on, I dare the floppers to flop.
The thing about grand finals is the standard of basketball is the best the NBL has on offer. Both teams never say die and every possession, every play will be crucial. No silly stuff needed, just make the score with a secure play and then get the stop. Simple. The Sixers were beaten on the offensive boards in game 1, that won’t be repeated. Somehow the Cat supporters were able to sneak a dodgy prawn into Creeky’s dinner the night before game 1, that won’t be repeated. In the regular season matches Perth had 63 free throw attempts, Adelaide 103. In Game 1, the refs tried to even it out.
This Friday there is only one place to be if you are a basketball fan in Adelaide.
