Pre-season - Perth vs Cairns

Game 1 tonight and game 2 Saturday. No Hire, Martin or Kenny for the Cats and you would assume at least no Jawaii for Cairns.

Does anyone know if there will be a live stream?

If this finds its way onto youtube I'd be very keen to take a look at the 5 new imports

Any idea when Prather will come? Would love if they could show all pre season games from all teams, I can't see a reason why not?

5 weeks to go, still feels feels like a lifetime. All that matters who wins post season not pre season.

Brandt is NOT GOOD ENOUGH!! Not for the wildcats anyway. He should get more rebounds for his size. Luckily the GREAT MAN KNIGHT is there to keep him from getting too much time.

here's an IDEA Mock, DONT read TOO MUCH into pre SEASON GAMES. There's a reason they CALL it the PRE SEASON, because it happens before the ACTUAL season.

Yeah mock ease up. It's preseason, everyone just feeling themselves out here. Plus look at Brandt as insurance for when knight does get injured which will happen. He would be a cheaper option than some people think aswell, so there is the business side to his signing.

good one EINSTEIN he wasn't a good rebounder at the Sydney Kings or in 5 years of college either. Is he going to get good in the next month before the season starts? I THINK NOT

re: Pre-season - Perth vs Cairns

well if you're going to bring Einstein into this, I'll drop some facts:

Brandt avg 9 rebounds a game in his first 4 starts, before he did his knee. He dropped to 4RPG the next season, but he was working his way back to full fitness (oh and he avg 12ppg at 50%).

He avg'd 5.29 rebounds a game last year - which was more than Jervis and Jawai. Knight avg'd slightly more at 7, but Matty played 7 minutes more per game.

Now I know the stats don't necessarily match with your feels, but the reality is that Brandt is a pretty decent NBL player. He gives the Wildat's great depth and versatility at 4/5.

ah well, it's the pre-season, always time for things to settle down :)

Sounds like a decent hit out... I don't suppose there have been any hightlights or clips posted? Perth and Cairns are usually pretty good on the social media but both seem to have dropped the ball this time around...

Brandt could be a really strong rebounder, the Kings were unfortunately a woeful rebounding TEAM (to borrow Mock's emphasis), and Brandt probably has some bad habits he needs to shake... and Perth is (unfortunately) probably the best place for that to happen.

I was pretty impressed with McKay's stats. Looks to be a very good pick up for Perth. Perth's 3 point shooting was a bit of a concern 4/15, compared to Cairns 15/37.

Perth were without Martin, Kenny, Hire and Prather so I don't think there is too much to get worried about.

Did Brandt get injured ? He played 10:29, all in the first half I believe.

You can't compare two guys rebounding stats from different teams like that. One guy might have better rebounding teammates or have a team that misses more thereby giving more rebound opportunities. Alternatively one defense may force more missed shots than another

Don't let the Snakes scoring outburst fool you.

It is pre season and Fearne doesn't want anyone to scout his wonderful offensive sets so he is obviously letting the guys play and express their talents a bit.

I am very confident that when all the hard work at training pays off and his disciplined offense clicks into gear they will be hitting that 70 pts or so a game that we all know and love.

Cairns look pretty decent. They have always been the underdogs and over achieved. If they can do what they did behind the arc as they did with Perth and throw Jawai in the middle they should get a lot of wins.

Haha fstos, coming from a Taipans fan, you're exactly right. From memory we have a history of looking potent in the pre-season only to go limper than than a wet dishrag in the season proper. Soft like Charmin baby
