R13: Kings v United
HUGE game in Sydney tonight. 5th place Kings host the 4th placed United. Both teams have got big names coming back. McRae has been reported as being 100% and Childress will be back on deck. Last time Childress came back from a break, he went ballistic. Expect the same tonight.
Hard choice for Sydney Coach too. Jason "gun holsters" Cadee has averaged 13.5 ppg in his last four outings, vs 6 ppg for his first 12 games. Some of his minutes will be reduced this game, but he had certainly made a statement.
Perhaps that is the difference in the teams tonight. Last time they met without Childress, Sydney players stepped up and fought gallantly and Melbourne limped over the line in OT. Melbourne have the talent, but don't seem to lift when it comes to big games. This is a big game.
I'm tipping a Sydney win by about 6 tonight. No OT required.
