R9: Crocs v Sixers
There are some serious questions in life, such as. "what do you want to do with your life?" “does my bum look big in this dress?”, “how many drink have you had tonight before getting in your car, Sir?”, “what are your intentions with my daughter?”
Tonight, the Crocs will ask a very serious question to the Sixers “do you want to play finals?” It's a pretty simple question, but not only do the Sixers need to answer that question, but answer it so emphatically the rest of the league know their intentions. This is game 1 of the Sunshine Swing and the Sixers must get at least one of these games. To go 0-2 means they would need to work harder than Bill Cosby’s PR team. It saddens me there are Hoopsters with little baby girls who have never experienced a Sixers victory in their short lifetime. That needs to change.
I think the Sixers can answer that question, but before they do, let’s look at those Crocs. Conklin is continuing on his good form from last season and is their leading scorer. But who is in support of the Blockadile? Blanchfield has followed up his great season from last year too with another and is surely the dangerman in green. He’s shooting 90% FT, so better no foul him when things are tight. Crikey, I’m looking forward to see how the Sixers tame that wild Croc. Steindl and Markovic round out the Crocs players averaging over 10 ppg.
It’s a different Sixers team from when they last met. In that game the scoring was shared around and a great 3rd quarter set the Sixers up for a 14 point win. Between then and now, the Sixers have had injuries, changed imports and had more issues to deal with than the Palmer United Party. So far, they have been winless with Brock Motum and for them to answer the Croc’s question in the affirmative, the Sixers and Motum needs to use their head - can he phone his friend Tommy?
This is a must win game for the Sixers and I think if they are disciplined enough, then this is their game. Go you Sixers!
