Kings V Sixers, Oct 23
It's the second game this round for both teams. Kings travelled to Auckland on Wednesday for a 12 point loss, and the Sixers welcome Randle with a 9 point win at home. In the eyes of Sixers fans, he was a hero, in the eyes of Taipans fan, he was "Randle the Vandal" delivering some much needed outside action for the Sixers in his 24 point game. Was this the first game in about ten years where the Sixers got 9 x 3 pointers?
Kings have been playing without Childress (not sure if he's back tonight) but were probably around at Tommy & Renae's last night for pizza in front of Fox checking out their opponents, who match up quite well.
Fatigue may play a part tonight. Without Childress, you would expect the Sixers to control the game, but the Kings have a habit of surprising teams. If they can control their 3rd quarter fade out, Sixers will squeeze a W. If Sideshow Bob is back, then Sydney.
