R20: Sixers v Cats
Who wants 3rd spot?
It's a simple question, but one that may be answered tonight. Potentially, 3rd spot could give that team home GF is things fall their way.
The Cats played the game of the year last round against the Breakers and Cedric "The Cat Slayer" Jackson didn’t just put a dagger in the Cats heart, he gave inspiration for all 10 year old basketballers to go for the prayer shot. If it was the Arena, Jarrod would have given Cedric a second go to see if he could do it again.
The absence of Knight for a few games showed just how central he is to the Cat’s plans and just how fragile the Cats can be without the big fellow lumbering up the court for the mismatch seal in the paint. Don’t worry, that’s why they have Beal. Surely their gameplan isn’t just dribble the ball aimlessly around the key looking for a mismatch and when it does happen, kick it out to the $ for a three.
The Sixers are playing with Mojo and look hard to beat at home. They are carrying form into this game.
How bad do you want third spot?
Sixers all the way.
