I'm looking forward to these games tonight. Melbourne, Sydney and Illawarra all look to have made some significant roster moves, so I'm keen to see where they're at compared to the Sixers, who have gone for a steady as she goes approach.

Also, it was nice to see a quick rundown on the NBL site about how each team has gone in pre-season. Well done to whoever is pumping out content for the NBL site. I hope online stats and articles continue to improve.

Having an easy place to go to get information and stats about the league is such an important part of getting people invested in the league!

No Childress for the Kings. Minor calf strain, so they're resting him.

It's got to annoy the league a bit with teams resting a lot of their gun players.

Majok posting up strong early. He likes it close to the hoop.

Him, Patton and Ibekwe wouldn't have worked together offensively, so from that perspective it looks like they've made the right move getting rid of Ibekwe

Issue could be other end of the court, perhaps.

Ofcourse warrick isnt over the hill, he looks in great shape. The comparison was made in regards to ebe being potentially over the hill, but not being in shape means his age does factor more so. Sucks no childress but if he is fresh for the main games then he should run away with the mvp and highlight reels will hopefully get kings fans to games.

Pretty impressive performance really. Especially considering Teys and Sobey who have been two of Adelaide's best scorers over the pre-season had quiet games. Johnson can put up points in his sleep.

The reason Teys and Sobey were quiet is because they were up against some real opponents. Both guys hustle guys only at top level.

I really like the balance of this Sixers roster too. Best its been for a loooong time. Still the perennial concerns of rebounding, defence and an inability to score against a zone, but at least we finally have a few guys who can shoot!

McNeail has looked solid, he just needs to make better decisions driving to the basket. A few times he just put his head down and drove into trouble.

Mitch Creek looking great. His ball-handling keeps improving and it makes him a real threat in the Sixers up-tempo offence.

I like the look of Sobey and Hodgson too. Its nice to see a couple of young guys added to our roster with some real potential.

We may still struggle in the half court, but will be unstoppable if we get to control an uptempo pace.

Thornton loves to shoot, hit a few uncanny shots, but gave away more points at the other end with his appalling defence. Open the door, and just waltz on by...

Enjoyed the game and think we have a good team this season. They seem to have developed a chemistry already and this should grow further as the season progresses. Hodgson has the potential to be a monster with his height and speed. Walker will improve as he finds his place in the side, still his figures were good tonight but maybe not Boomers standard. Sobey, McNeail are good additions. Others show improvement from last season.

The video stream is soo much better than nbl.tv. Yes I had all the issues noted above but the clarity of the video was great and for free. My ADSL speed is the same as last year so a measured improvement for me.

I thought the same thing XY. Thornton has some nice skills, but he needs to work on his defence and getting others involved!

I liked the Sixers ball movement tonight, they were definitely doing a better job of creating in the half-court than they have done in the past. The question is, what will happen when they play a top defensive team? The Kings defence was pretty woeful tonight.

Sydney and Adelaide was the best game of the Blitz thus far.

I think everyone (myself included) underestimated Adelaide due to their lack of NBA calbire signing, but they showed today that they have the strongest Australian core filled with veterans and up and comers.

I have found all of the other games of the Blitz pretty bland, but I really liked this one.

As for Townsville, they do not support the NBL the way they used to. I am really sick of the league being dragged down by regional towns that aren't supporting the league. If Townsville fails to get crowds this season, cut the chord. Yes, it won't be the greatest news the NBL has had, but it will mean another weak franchise wont erode the league from the inside.

Townsville - turn up or F*** off.

Should've just had the Blitz back in Brissy again to boost moral for next season. They had a great turn out last year.

The Sixers looked good last night. Standouts for me were DJ, Creek, McNeail and Hodgson.
McNeail can shoot but isn't that great off the dribble - forced it inside a couple of times. Don't think he is as talented as Ervin or Wilson but his shooting fills a need from the last 2 years and will help Gibbo create more and give DJ space inside.
Hodgson is big and Athletic. He will need to play a big role I think this year as he is the only rim protector. Has a lot of potential I think.
More positives than negatives to come out of last night I think for the Sixers. Ere is the X-Factor for me with the Sixers.

Sixers looked good. But man, some of the fouls called against the Kings were very, very soft. I hope that game isn't a representation of the type of refereeing we see during the regular season.

"Walker will improve as he finds his place in the side, still his figures were good tonight but maybe not Boomers standard."

Lucas nearly made the Boomers on the back of rebounding, defending and hitting the open jumper, all of which he apparently did very well in camp (and in 2014 with the Tigers). If he can do those three things consistently for Adelaide he'll be a huge plus.

NBL write-up:

The off-season hasn't done anything to diminish the fast paced style that the 36ers’ are famous for. Adelaide forced the Kings to foul with their uncompromising offense and that kept the 36ers’ tally ticking over throughout the game. They shared the minutes and shots and looked cohesive regardless of whatever combination of bodies were on the floor.

Johnson had Khazzouh fouled out in about 10 minutes and went for 26 or so in not that many minutes. Because he converts so well at the stripe, I think playing aggressively is going to suit him well - foul out opponents and rack up points.
