Are Martin and Prather still injured or were merely rested tonight?
It's a valid question.
Martin was supposedly a "game-night" decision for the past two weeks. Prather hurt his leg at practice and supposedly required only ice.
Crocs have been shite so far, so did Gleeson err on the side of caution, and not play them, in expectation of an easy win.
I appreciate that a lot of people like to see Perth lose, and that's fine, lose we did.
But lets be realistic and not pretend that was some epic battle. It was one of the crappiest games I have seen in a long time.
Perth blew them away in the first few minutes, and I think they got complacent. Let them back in with soft crappy ball, but even so had the gamed iced with a few minutes to run, and simply screwed up epically. Arrogant? Complacent? Lazy? Disrespectful?
For some reason, when they had that lead, the cats decided the smart move was to run down the clock on every play, resulting in no scores and turnovers.
Whilst at the other end just sagging off and letting the Crocs drain the 3's.
Then you've got "Captain" Hire, who not only misses the basket but completely fucks the free-throws.
