Breakers v Sixers 29/10
Sixers have travelled across the ditch to play the Breakers, who are having a "Super Saturday" with cheap tickets. An arena full of Kiwis high on the thrill of a cheap ticket is just what the Sixers need.
The Breakers will be desperate to get this one in the bag. As always, Abba is the danger man. Penney looms in the background as well. He offers more than what he has delivered so far. I feel that the Breakers sedan has been plodding along in 3rd gear just waiting to drop it into 4th.
The Sixers are without two players tonight, but seem to be punching above their weight with Sobey stepping up (I guess his agent is already in negotiations for next year's contract) and Randle in MVP form. They can't do it alone.
No Vukona/Petrie tussle tonight which has been a highlight of these clashes over the last few seasons. The reffing in NZ is a little "looser" than in Aus with a bit of argy bargy let go making for some entertaining plays.
The great thing about the time zone is the game starts 5 pm Adelaide time meaning I can watch the new McGyver at 7.30.
Let's Go Sixers, Sixers to pip the Breakers in a high scoring entertaining game
