R8: Sixers v Kings
Lock up your daughters, lock up your good chairs, the Kings are in town and this is Showdown Sunday.
It's the first chance Sixers fans we get to see former Sixer Jason Cadee. He has had a mixed season with the Kings with the occasional brilliant game thrown in for good measure. He had a great game against the Breakers, so Sixers fans will be hoping he has got that out of his system. There are a number of Kings to watch. Tommy Garlepp is having an outstanding season and will keep the talls busy. Benny Madgen had a season high 26 points last time these teams met and always seems to play a bit better in front of mum and dad.
Then there is the man they call Josh. He's an excitement machine and it's a battle between him and McRae to see who can get the most ppg. It's also a battle to find a comb! BTW, Sideshow Bob rang and wants his hair back. Last time they met, he had come back from a short hiatus and had a point to prove. Now, the Sixers have a point to prove.
The Sixers have been backed into a corner and that makes them dangerous. To make finals a team needs 15 wins (14 and splits might work too), so they need 12 wins from their remaining 20 games. For that to happen it all starts NOW! There's been a few interruptions last few rounds, but that's all behind the Sixers as they move forward. It'll be a hot one outside the stadium and even hotter inside the stadium.
It's about time things click for the Sixers and I am tipping them to come back hard this game. Sixers by 7.
