Grand Final: Breakers vs Wildcats, Game 2

The punters think this series is going the distance
Breakers $1.48
Wildcats $2.67

Bit of a pity the game can't be at Vector, but purely in terms of their chances of winning it I reckon the Breakers won't mind it being played at their spiritual home of NSEC.

While many think this will result in a NZ win, we must remind ourselves that the pressure of holding home court is now on New Zealand.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in no championship series with the breakers have the Wildcats had or held home court?

This is new territory for the breakers.

I'm ever so slightly and foolishly confident the Wildcats could sneak in a cheeky victory here.

Of course we're a good chance. It's a free hit for us. All the pressure is on NZ to not make too many mistakes for the next 80 minutes of basketball.
If Beal gets hot or Casey gets loose then we're every chance of winning.
NZ's zone was pretty effective though, and I was far from convinced about how we dealt with it. So at home I still favour them. There's a lot of scoring power in that team.

Side note - My brain is still struggling to cope with Cedric "hack-a-Jack" Jackson's transformation from a guy who can't hit a clutch free throw to a guy regularly nailing step-back threes.

I think with Cedric it's the case of - while he's not a great shooter, he knows he needs to take those shots.

And because he's got the swagger of 3 championships, he backs himself, and low and behold he makes shots.

What frustated me last night, was the Wildcats lack of attention to Cedric playing defense and his quick hands.

Whenever a cats player caught the ball in the high post cedric was always lurking nearby - very dangerous.

NZ zone gave us problems because we were so focussed on getting it inside when it came to needing to adjust our shooters were cold.

Fingers crossed Beal shows up to game 2 and makes some shots!

Nope. Since finals have come around and crowds are lower the stats aren't released. During the regular season 14/14 crowd totals were provided by 'Cats oh so ever proudly on social media and game reports. Not working their way now so they threw a tanty and won't release.

Honestly, when I think of the Breaker's courts, I think they can be beaten (if only rarely) at North Shore, but at Vector they're damn near invulnerable. Not being able to use Vector is a pretty handy result for the Wildcats.

This isn't the NBA, and the players we have are not adapted (or suited) to that schedule. To play a 5 game series, they'd have to spread the games our more, and the NBL seems very reluctant to extend the season like that.
The travel could also become a problem. The reason we have a H-A-H series is because teams bitched about the A-H-H format.

This should be an interesting game. Obviously NZ must win and are favourites at home, but I think the Cats will be pushing hard. A 3rd game does them no favours.
Sometimes the team that is a game down, loses confidence or motivation in the 2nd. That won't happen here. NZ would easily back themselves to win from here.

I know people think that LK is the 2nd coming, because NBL is on Foxtel, but the scheduling this year was apparently done by some kid with a crayon. They seem to have completely forgotten that getting to Auckland (from Perth) is not like getting to Melbourne. There's a couple of direct flights per WEEK, other than that you're stuck trying to get a connection through Melbourne.

It's worth remembering that Game 2 last year was a pretty close, exciting game. That was less than 48 hours after Game 1 and a similar travel time between games as this year. The first final was in Cairns at 7:30pm 6 March and the second game was 3pm in Auckland on 8 March.

Further to koberulz' point, 2am is 9pm Perth time and they'll be playing at 2:30pm Perth time. Perth have the opportunity to match their sleep pattern to Perth time zone and be able to come up okay for the game.

Many professional people regularly travel like this and then have to work a full day without the opportunity to get a night's sleep first. I think the players will handle it fine, just as they did last year.

True, but less than half the travel and a longer break between game one and two. Game 5 the 08 Sydney v Melbourne series was another example of a fatigued slog.

At the end of the day it's the same for both teams, it's just not ideal for good basketball. Not even NBA Finals have this sort of scheduling.

It allows the lesser team to get a chance and it allows for minimal travel.

Cats need to adapt to the way the game is being called, and stop giving up stupid fouls. They have been the victims of some ridiculous calls, but then they compound it with stupid fouls. Letting NZ walk the length of the court and shoot frees.
Perth were fortunate in game one, that the refs were (unusually) calling all the contact inside on Knight & Jawai. They're not doing it today, need to adapt.

Need to get Prather on the scoreboard, and not by throwing up bricks from outside.

These teams are real similar in that they live on the edge defensively..and struggle to adapt sometimes when refs call it closer.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR GLEESON TO GET A TECH? Seriously, the refs look like idiots.

Weird runs of scoring in this game. Breakers up by a lot, then Wildcats up, then Breakers up by a lot, now pretty much even again. Is this on purpose to clean up on the live betting odds?

The refs are pathetically weak. Early on in the season Gleeson should have been teched hard when whining to teach him a lesson. But it wasn't done so you can't start to set a precedent in the second last or last game of the season.

Rules of emphasis for the refs prior to next season should include teching Gleeson for being so fking abrasive.

Think the game has been called not too bad actually. Perth maybe got a few bad calls but if you're going to reach wildly you put the ref in a position to make the call.

Think a lot of Perth fans buy into Gleesons whinging. See him whinge and assume Perth got a bad call. Note: Gleeson argues everything.

If NZ are ANY hope of winning game 3 they need to shoot better at the stripe. An abysmal 19-34 from the line is shockingly bad.

Looks like refs will win Game 3 easily.
They've been blatantly biased against both teams in both games so far and can't possibly be that bad again.

Both made it to a GF Game 3 yet...

Vickerman = no job next season
Gleeson = guaranteed job

polar opposites

Is it fair to say both NZ and Perth's chances rest highly on the production of Webster and Prather respectively?

Cats get like four O boards in a row on one play but can't convert.

Then Abo chokes on frees yet they can't get the D board.

LOL @ Wildcats rebounding

Insert all the Perth fans guaranteeing a game 3 win and acting like tonight's loss is no big deal. But reality says it's a big deal to lose a GF game, this could be tragic for the unbeatables!

Perth have been the overall superior side thus far and I think infront of that crowd in WA they will be mighty hard to stop. They clearly had more then enough chances to blow the breakers apart.


I cant wait for my Hawks next season to be fully fit because with the right recurits we could match these teams.

Not looking forward to the quality of game 3.
Never seen so many air-balls, and otherwise one of the sloppiest games I've seen for a while, players just knackered towards the end.

There's an old saying (related to university) that 51% is wasted effort, and 49% is a wasted year.
For all the effort Perth put in to get close, they lost. They clearly went all out for a win, but it didn't pay off.

Is it true Breakers booked out all business class seats tonight out of AUK to PER? HAHAHA #checkmate and shows how slow the Cats organisation are at logistics.

^ I wouldn't say so, MACDUB, since both were ordinary tonight and either team could have won it, and a sub-par game from Prather on Wednesday didn't prevent the Cats getting the win.

If Webster plays like that we lose game 3. Even if he plays slightly better we probably still lose.

Need to play close to a perfect game to beat Perth over there. Should be a cracker.

Besides that being a close game that was not a pretty game. Has been a lot better gf games played!! No Perth fan can be confident when they can only produce 70 odd points, I don't care how good your defence is, there lack of shot makers makes them very vulnerable. They will be on here making excuses that they will be fine at home and they expected to lose this blah blah blah but they did not look good even when the Breakers tried to hand them that win!

NZ handled the pressure (just) and gave themselves a shot a a ship.
I agree that for the most part that was an ugly contest and neither team looked that great due to such a short turnaround from game 1.

Perth MUST do something about their stupid fouling. ie pointless reaching in, especially after the opponent has grabbed the ball. Either go hard for the rebound, or leave it alone. Don't wait for him to grab it, come down, then just shove your arm in.

It's bad enough that Prather does it a couple of times per game, and winds up on the bench in foul trouble, but today they just went spastic. NZ may suck at shooting frees, but if you send them to the line for 34 shots, some of them are going to drop.

Ok, so they copped a few fouls early that were questionable, but if that happens you need to tighten up and stop giving away easy ones.

Well with Trev returning good luck with that! Perth hustle grind play great physical intense basketball but they have no shooters. Beal is good not great, they have no ennis lisch offensive juggernaut and it showed tonight. How wonder they try and slow the tempo they can't go the distant in a high scoring game for the most part. Before the copy and paste champs get started, I said the most part.

He's guaranteed a contract extension with no game plan so there will be no game plan so why fix something that is broke when you continue to be employed?

WTF is it with ppl referencing copy and pasting? It's called quoting.

Yes today's loss does matter.
Fact is that Perth had the opportunity to win, and didn't. Yes, they get G3 at home, but if the game is on the line will they be able to pull it out?
Being in Perth favours the Cats, but I feel being the 3rd game in 3 days favours the Breakers. Jervis needs to redeem himself.

Credit to Perth, playing breakers in NZ with their backs against the walls was always going be tough. The way they were playing they were lucky not get pants by 20. HCA has been huge this season and I expect nothing less from Game 3. This series is going to the wire. Perth by 3 in the decider. My ticket is booked and I can't wait for this game.

It didn't work.


It's not too hard to work with, but the issue is if you screw up a tag, you break the entire page. And then Isaac has to come fix it. Which is his stated reasoning for not more publicly posting the correct markup for things, so fewer people try it and therefore screw it up, but it also means it's to his benefit to have a system where pushing a button quotes things. So you could look at it either way.

And yet they have taken Perth to equal first for the season, and now game 3 of the GF. Win or lose that's better than 6 other teams including yours.

What about Vickerman? Is he a flog?
Given that to this point his record is worse than Gleesons?

Maybe you should hedge your bets by pointlessly insulting both teams.
