R10: Perth v Adelaide
The best game of the round is saved for last. John McRae may describe this as an "8 by 5 game", but we all know Perth are never, ever assisted by the refs.
The Sixers (aka Grallina bravus maximus) head to Perth to take on The Wildcats (aka Felis silvestris floppus). It's the first time Perth fans will see Adelaide this season who will be 100% focussed on getting the win.
The Wildcats are 6 & 1 at home and travelling quite nicely. And why wouldn't they? Beal leading the way with 17 ppg at 43% and 37.5% from the arc makes most of their 3PA. He is closely followed by fellow import Daniels 14.3% at 40%. Surprisingly Daniels leading the rebound count too, something I'm sure would make Matty Knight work just that little bit harder. The PF combo of Redhage and Wagstaff contribute a combined 20 ppg at 44% and 7.7 rpg. Something the Sixers PFs will be aiming quell.
The Sixers will need to work hard and work as a team if they are to get this game. Let's not forget the Sixers spoiled the Opening Day Party when the Wildcats moved to the stadium, so anything is possible. If the Cats have a bogey team at their home stadium, then the Sixers can put their hand up.
The Sixers worked well on Friday night and Trevor G would no doubt have had a look at the game on his VCR. We saw the Motum we were expecting to see and a few other notable Sixers grew a pair and stood up to the plate. BJ played a great second half and him and Peach need to win that PF spot today for the Sixers to have a hope of going 2-0 this round
I haven't seen the betting odds, but I am expecting the Wildcats to be heavily backed to win this game.
Let's Go Sixers!
