Illawarra vs Melbourne: 6/11/16

Two struggling outfits meet today. Melbourne struggling more than Illawarra I think because of their injuries.

Hard one to pick, who you got?

Hawks should win here.

Let's see if DD insists on sitting the hot hands with his horrible rotations.

Didn't Heal also call the game in Perth last night?

14 hours later and he's calling this one in Wollongong.

DD going with his all bench line-up, which basically means Wesley chucks up bricks from 3pt for 5 mins again.

This is a battle of the two struggling offences, I like the Hawks in this.
Like to see Clarke get going. Got to take 12-15 shots. Even if some may be bricks.

CG43 has to calm his coach down after another tech

There is clear dissension amongst the ranks at MU. The little disagreement between Anderson and Moore, Ced getting T'ed up due to an outburst of frustration, Anderson and Tomlinson talking to each other over DD in the timeout and then CG having to calm the HC down telling him that Adnam travelled which caused DD to blowup and get a tech foul.

Not meaning to be captain obvious, but UTD has a cultural issue.

If not for two dumb techs, they'd be right in the game, despite missing half the team and playing on the road....

Things are never quite as bad as they seem. Hopefully DA is the cool head in the group who can calm everyone down

United have serious problems with team chemistry, CJ esp and Coach. Could implode if the Hawks stick it to them.
Williams getting some time and some easy shots.
Clarke getting going.Two man game with Oscar is money for them.
Hawks, if they could shoot, would be up 20 by now.They are controlling the tempo and the game though.

If Melb lose this game they'll be bottom of the ladder won't they?

Would probably spell the end for DD.

Also saw Tomlinson kind of teaching Andersen a lesson of some sort after his foul on Kay. It didn't look too be a positive exchange. Just too much negative energy for united. They are the superteam that has gone wrong

A lot of talk about DD although if the Hawks lose to this United team at home is Bevo under pressure?

I understand why Andersen is frustrated. He's had ridiculous touchy fouls like that Kay one getting called on him all season. Hard to know where the line is.

Bevo re-signed with the Hawks to a 4 year deal in the offseason I think he'll be safe.

United is 3-5, and 2 of their last 3 November games are vs Kings. The other is vs Cairns who is the form team of the competition right now. United may well fall to 4-7 or even 3-8.

But things are never quite as bad as they seem. Once United gets their full team back they will be formidable- despite DD.

Sorry make that 3-6 and possibly heading to 4-8 or 3-9 by November's end.

But, you never know, there have been seasons where 13-15 gets you into the top 4. So it'd be foolish to write them off.

Don't know how United pick up the pieces. Coach looks like he has lost half his team. Looks terminal to me.
CJ is a 32 minute player to be effective, not a rotation player. Might as well get shot of him if he wants Nate Tomlinson to run the show.
Anderson doing his best to carry the load but he is a "go to 16 point player" not a carry the team type.
Williams got to play a bit and showed he can be useful.

I guess, to be fair on Melbourne, they do have Goulding, Blanchfield and Barlow out at the moment.
They're going to have to get rolling pretty soon if they want to salvage their season.
9 games in, with only 3 wins, they're not far away from running out of time.

Dennis is in Japan.
DD looks to have lost his players confidence from what you see on TV and the comments made by those who reckon they know a bit.

As long as Tueta plays as well as last night, Paul Henare will not be throwing out the SOS for CJ don't worry about that. CJ has that "my team" mentality and if that is what you want then fine but you have to take him warts and all, playing time, shot or lack of and coach on the floor.

I can only assume that out-of-bounds call on Norton was made solely to make the guy who called Wroe for a backcourt violation feel better.
