Sydney looked tired.
Agree, Cadee was the only one that really had any potency.
The last two games might be the difference between Randle and Lisch being MVP. KL didn't quite have the impact he needed to, he also looked tired.
People who continue to complain about the umpiring maybe should umpire themselves instead of mouthing off about the umpiring.
As a general point and not in reference to today's game:
Nobody is demanding perfection, but people pay to watch this game, umpires are paid and players have their careers affected by calls.
The game shouldn't be about the umpires and interference to the point of swaying games. Their actions should draw critique just like players and coaches. Plus, it's only natural that particular decisions are discussed and the emotions of fans put a little polish on it.
Sydney looked tired, Adelaide played well.
Creek somehow ended with 18 points but early on made some stupid passes and defended at times like...an idiot. You're captain, don't give away cheap fouls.
Since the 36ers won, it's easier to let it go on the basis of him getting a feel for the game again.
Deng seems to like Sydney. Knocking down those threes and his freethrows in addition to a nice block. Good to see him having an effect.
Hodgson and Jacobsen are driving me up the wall with some stupid cheap fouls. Hodgson can be influential, particularly on offence so we need him to avoid foul trouble!
Speaking of which: Big guys - in this case Johnson - if you're right next to the basket, dunk. the. ball.
If you try to lay it up you might miss the 'gimme', as DJ managed this time around.
Sobey had a quiet first few quarters but that last quarter effort just adds to his legitimacy. A player who even in a quiet game can pop up when it counts, that's just gives the 36ers extra credibility in taking on close games.
Some of Randle's dimes were just awesome particularly that one to Creek. He seemed to be forcing it a bit and struggled a little against the zone, this is where we need Drmic and Ferguson to be our sharp shooters to space the floor.
Great stuff Adelaide, they're producing better than anyone at the moment.
