Wildcats v Sydney Kings - Thurs 17th 6:30pm
On the one hand, its great that the Kings have turned their fortunes around. Last year they served up some of the worst slop, so their return to quality is welcomed. D-Lisch will as always get a friendly welcome.
Unfortunately, hopes of an epic "top of the table" clash have been been torpedoed by the absence of Martin & Kenny. That's actually really unfortunate, as despite their differing styles these two teams had the potential to deliver some awesome games.
Hard to get excited about what our backcourt (or lack thereof) is going to produce.
In some ways, this will still be a bit of a test for the Kings, its their longest road-trip and they need to deliver, but surely their quality and depth will win out.
Not sure I like these double-banger fixtures. I have a feeling the split against Sydney will be irretrievable after this weekend. (Can only hope that Sydney can still draw a massive crowd.)
