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!

Q: Why aren't they just resting Markovic entirely? Surely playing 15 mpg isn't helping his injury, or the team. He needs to lose some weight and get that hammy right.

Really strange injury management approach.

And I think the Crocs need to answer that same question, Jack. Similar records, both teams underperforming.

Mick, it was even more strange a few games ago when they played NZ in NZ.

Markovic didn't play the 1st and 2nd quarter yet was thrust into the game in the 3rd.

I found that decision very odd - why come on in the 3rd when the game was already slipping away. Surely if he was going to come on, you would think it would be in the 1st quarter.

Jack, your previews are absolute gold man. Keep em up!

Mick, every week we ask Dennis about Marko's injury and he says the same thing. "It's a real shame", "nothing we can do" etc. I'd rule out any conflict between he and Dennis because Markovic plays the end of games. The only conclusion I can draw is it's one of those injuries where total rest isn't exactly going to fix the problem. Don't quote me but Loughton had something like that with his groin a couple years ago and Fearne had the same kind of approach with minutes. He's clearly not 100% at all though, literally registered zero stats in eight minutes against Cairns Sunday. With his rotation atm, he misses the whole first half and comes on about halfway through the third quarter probably just to give Mitch/Mirko a rest more than anything.

You have to feel for the Crocs though, with Marko healthy and the growth of Vinnie they're a top four team. As Dennis said in a recent presser, the three people running the show are 23 , 21 and 19 years old so you have to hand it to em for the job they're doing.

Wilson not hogging the ball is making a huge difference to everyones body language and input! Not a flashy eye catching first half, but always nice to grind out a lead in a feral environment at the half.

Also some positives with Motum, A works with him off the bench, B great character to come out and score 11 in a half as opposed to cracking the shits! C'mon 6ers, can still give this season a shake!

The lead has been trimmed by 1 but the 36ers lead 41-37 at half time.

A fairly even second period with the refs being whistle happy. Hopefully we come out with a better second half attitude than we had last week against the Kings.

Points: Motum 11, Wilson 10, Gibson 6
Assists: Creek 3, Gibson 2, Wilson, Schenscher, Motum 1
Rebounds: Wilson 5, Petrie 4, Schenscher, Motum, Teys & Anthony 3
Blocks: Schenscher 1

Adelaide are 7/12 from the FT line but we're 0-8 from outside (the Crocs are 11/18 and 4/10 on those). Our worst offender at the FT line is Teys (1/4).

Schenscher and BJ have 3 fouls each, Gibbo, Wilson, Teys and Motum 2 each. No Croc has more than 2 personal fouls.

We can win this one.

36ers don't defend the 3pt line well enough or shoot well enough from there themselves (minus the NZ game when they didn't miss).

If Jamar is going to play he needs to be off the ball. He isn't a point guard. Just a small shooting guard.

Teys seems to have the best ability to make reads/plays out of the pick n roll (which they don't run enough of).

Gibbo showed some life in the last couple of minutes. Problem was that for the first 38 he looked clinically dead.

Wilson's team leading 18 points looked ok, but in the last when we needed quick movement and scores he danced around at the top of the key so much without looking for team mates that the Crocs forwards were able to get inside and block his drives.

Schenscher was largely ineffective thanks to the whistle happy refs. Sometimes it seems that all an opposition player has to do is bump into him and he's called for a foul.

Peach had his best game in a while. When he was subbed out on 4 fouls early in the last, we fell apart.

Brock Motum was ok tonight, at least he was better than he's been lately. But I think his D is a bit more suspect than what people give him credit for.

In his 100th game, Mitch Creek was one of our better players in the first. Sadly wasn't sighted much in the second half where he seemed to a bench spectator for the most part.

All in all it was a very disappointing effort in the second half from Adelaide. And the sad thing is that Townsville weren't THAT good, we were just shocking.

On the plus side, Brett Maher is commentating in Perth tonight. Good to see Ten recognising his mic talents (an NBL game without Carfino calling a "Euro-step"....we've all dreamed about it but never thought it would happen).

As I've said time and time again following previous games, its the DEFENCE.

That's the issue plain and simple. 94 points given up this time..that adds to the 90s and 100s they've been giving up for the last how many games.

You have to remember the NZ game was an outlier because they shot the hell out of it. When they shoot normal %s they lose because they can't defend a deck chair.

The 36ers defence is a big problem right now. We have some guys who are rated as good defenders (Creek, Gibbo, Teys), but letting opposition teams score 93 points a game doesn't say much for team defence let alone individual defence. But there are other problems as well.

I hope he starts proving me wrong soon but I'm still not sold on Brock Motum. Offensively he's not as good as DJ was, and while the word is that his defence is better I'm yet to see it. I can understand the 36ers letting DJ go and not wanting to stand in the way of his career, but personally I wish he was still suiting up for Adelaide.

Right now Adelaide doesn't have a focal point in its offence. Wilson tries to be and is leading the team in scoring, but the problem is that he tends to forget that he has talented team mates who can also score. When he's on the court he's the one doing most of the scoring and taking most of the shots. When he's on the bench is when his team mates are scoring. As a PG sure he should be taking some shots, but he should be creating more for his team mates.

Wilson's selfish play with the ball in his hands is a problem. Gibbo going missing for 95% of a game is a problem. Our continued lack of defence against 3 point shots is a problem. The lack of plays to get our better shooters open looks is a problem. Playing the second half of a game with little or no urgency is a problem. I could go on but what's the point?

The Adelaide 36ers have problems. I just hope they figure out how to fix them by the time they take the court tonight against Cairns. Not holding my breath though.

What in the hell is happening with this team???

Recap: Crocs bounce back, bite 36ers

Gladness was arguably the pick of the dominant Crocs foursome, finishing with an almighty 19 points on 8-12 shooting, 14 rebounds and 4 blocked shots. He was simply unstoppable, an impenetrable force on both ends of the court. He physically dominated Luke Schenscher, limiting him to 2 points on 1-5 shooting and had him in foul trouble early.

It is not just the defence. It its the basics. not getting basics right will give opposition lots of chances to score. Sixers missed quite a few free throws early, should of been up by more. Their decision making in the paint is terrible, when double teamed, hopeless at finding open man. They miss LAYUPS, (teys again missed an easy reverse). They rush isolation plays, etc, etc.
Usually getting the basics wrong is lack of confidence and trying too hard. When Motum first arrived against Kings he had good instinct to shoot. Now very hesitant. Gibbo was shooting, now hardly jacking up anything. Is it instruction from coach to run the play all the way through even if opening for shot occurs, and are they worried about being benched/blasted if they miss?
I would like to see rotations stop and 5 players left on court as much as possible with only 1 player getting swapped at a time.

Lc agreed gladness was outstanding and played his best game of the season, some of those blocks were volleyball spikes. But the big difference for me was markovic, the crocs were looking stagnate on offense in the first half when markovic wasn't playing a lot and Norton was struggling. The second half markovic got the crocs offense rollng either hitting a bucket or finding a team mate for an open look, just seemed to change the momentum.

This has been the crocs biggest issue all season imo, with markovic playing limited minutes due to injury, the point guard duties have been shared with Norton and Djeric who are great but still very young. If you look at the top teams they generally have one or two big contributors at the point.

"Joey now under the pump"

Joey was under the pump from the start of the season. Their was high expectation from management of making the finals this season on the back losing last years GF.

The difference from this year to last is talent. The GF team was talented and therefore Joey didn't have to coach. This years team lack overall talent, a disruption of an import change, no team chemistry, no floor leader, no discipline and more importantly...Joey's lack of coaching.

A true coach knows how to get the best out of a less talented team and implement a defensive plan to makeup for thats lack of offensive.

It is starting to show more each week that Joey isn't a true coach. He's look great when coaching talent but this season is being out coached each week.

We are talking about joey in the same conversation as Marty Clark who IMO is the worst nbl coach ever!

It's clear there are some major issues within the Sixers camp too many to repair without the leadership of the coach.

I suggest the Sixers management start the coaching conversation with Bevo immediately, not Brett Maher.

After this weekend the Sixers will cement themselves as bottom half nbl team with zero hope of making the finals which is unfortunate because the Sixer fans deserve better.

"This years team lack overall talent"

I would disagree. On paper this team should be performing better.

Jamar Wilson, Adam Gibson (Boomer), Anthony Petrie, Brock Motum, Big Luke to go with very handy players like Anthony, Teys, Creek.

You have a good import, two Boomers - one of which nearly made the NBA, an exprrienced NBL vet, a former NBA player, a Tall Black, and two very good players in Creek and Teys.

I also disagree that last year's team was better.

Jamar is better with Ervin. Ervin is playing terrible now (likely with injuries) so Jamar is a big upgrade.

On the flip side Motum is a slight step backwards from DJ.

DJ is a better rebounder and scorer and the jury is out that Motum is a better defender.

Crawford for Carter is a straight even swap.

Teys has improved considerably from last year.

Creek's development, though slower than liked, is also coming along.

Overall this team is slightly better, which is good because it is more expensive.

Fan-ciful,

Re: the hate directed towards Motum; i don't think anyone disputes his skill and talent. I certainly don't. Yet his behaviour in some games like the constant yapping, trash talk etc. Is tiring and its behaviour like that that makes people hate.

My concern witb Motum is that he looks like a player who hasn't come here to win ball games. He seems like the type of player who is happy to come here and use the league as an intermediary to head back to Europe. He seems content to put up numbers rather than getting Ws. He knows he isn't going to be around long.

I thought last night the 36ers were beaten on the sidelines. Yes Gladness and Conklin had big nights, but how many of their points came from Adelaide's press breaking down?

When their halfcourt D was working so well, especially the zone, why would you turn it into a pressing game against a team that presses every day in practice?!

When they were using last year's formula, slow the other team, pack the defence, rebound and run, the 36ers looked really good last night.

If they keep the press for the occasional surprise tonight and play with the same energy as last night I'd give them a good chance of beating Cairns.

I agree MACDUB. Team chemistry is very important, and he's not helping that by thinking about his next job. Or , indifferent attitude may be a factor in his NBA delisting.
