Hawks v Sixers, Jan 28
What an absolute ripper of a game we have tonight as part of the twin H&A play this round. Illawarra host Adelaide in what may be the crucial series of Season 2016. Illawarra with 6 straight home wins are 8 and 2 at home will be looking to pour beer all over Adelaide's chances early. Adelaide are 4 and 6 on the road and an away win tonight will be something more beautiful than watching Tony Abbott get eaten by a school of sharks in Bondi.
Last time these teams played was R7, Sixers plucked the Hawks 89 to 77. Johnson owning the Hawks big men with 16 boards and 15 points, Randle leading all scorers with 20.
Penney and Lisch are the obvious dangermen for the Hawks, with AJ lurking around the key. Lisch was player of the month in December and you would think the battle between him and Randle will be crucial in deciding January’s POTM. Randle has gone crazy of late and leads the league in scorers. It is like he reaches into his opponent’s chest and plucks out their beating heat and shows them. Will Lisch have the pleasure of watching his heart beat tonight? boom boom boom boom boom boom
I haven’t heard on the status of "Spenda" Penney, but if he is out then that is a massive out for the Hawks and the power swings firmly back the Sixers way. If he’s back, then the Hawks are going to be hard to beat.
You guys know I don’t tip against the Sixers, and there’s a good reason for that.
