Hawks haven't turned to shit lol, they've lost very close games to Sydney, and now Perth. Hawks have had one particularly bad game out of 4.
But you just finished saying that Perth's win was meaningless because they only beat the Hawks???
You do realise the Hawks were missing Rob Beveridge
Yeah, cos he's made all the difference in the past
and Perth stitched up the result in the final seconds?
No, they had the game hosed with over a minute to go (which in the NBL is an eternity.)
And you do realise the Cats just sacked their 2nd (or potentially 1st) best import, and replaced him with an old bloke fresh off the plane, that their 2nd import is still struggling to find his rythym, etc.
Nobody is suggesting it was pretty. I like good D, and even I thought it was ugly.
Nor should anyone be thinking we're going to win the 'ship this season. I've said many times that the league is much more competitive. In fact I actually said that this could be the season when "the streak" is at risk.
At the end of the day, if we can keep winning our home games, then I'm happy.
