Sixers v Kings, Nov 7
The Sixers snatched defeat from the jaws of victory and Sydney fell victim to a rampaging Melbourne in the Capital City Shootout on Thursday. Can anyone stop United this year? Are they terminators that need to be dropped into a ladle of molten steel?
Both teams backing up tonight for what should be a delicious treat for fans. Although both teams are in the bottom half of the table, this will be a classic tussle. Kings are desperate to pass the baton of bottom of the table to the Crocs and Sixers keen to leapfrog the boys from the Gong back into the 4.
For Sydney, Khazzouh is the obvious go to man. His size will give Joey a headache. Thornton and Cadee will keep the guards on their toes, and if Harrington finds his confidence, then the Sixers will have some serious questions to answer.
For Adelaide, they just need to make every shot and play count. These are the games that call for a hero to stand up. Gibbo was well held in NZ and tonight he can set the standard with a Captain's Game. Hodgson has shown us his potential and tonight is a great opportunity for him to demand more time from Joey.
No excuses for fans not to go tonight and no excuses for the Sixers not to bag and tag Sydney.
