Kings vs 36ers rematch, Dec 18

Tip-off is 3pm Eastern. Live on SBS, plus the other usual options.

A perfectly timed rematch after the thrilling game earlier this round. Kings will have the benefit of the home crowd this time around - might be enough to turn things around?

Your prediction?

I hope not, but I think the Kings might blow them out.

Under the bounceback theory this NBL season seems to be governed by the Kings are due for a win and the 36ers a loss. If Adelaide can win this one against a desperate team they are the real deal.

The thing is, the way they rebound and run and rotate guys through they can really test Sydney's lack of depth. Kings in a close one for mine, but a hot Randle afternoon can make that prediction look silly in a hurry.

A Sydney blowout would surely be the end of the season for 36ers, and to Wright's tenure as coach.

;P

DJ didn't have it going on Friday the way he has in the previous few weeks. Mitch Creek still has to settle back in. Sobey and Randle were dynamic and will be hard to hold again. One thing that came out of Friday's game is the Kings need bolstering in the backcourt. Cadee isn't up to that sort of defensive assignment.

If Sydney's team defence is not as good as it was in the third quarter on Friday, they could be in big trouble. They are leading the league in points allowed, and if they make some outside shots, that will slow Adelaide's offence.

I think the Crumbles will win this, by 12.

I think Cadee is overrated. I don't rate his D and he is too flakey a scorer. Agreed the kings need to sort their backcourt....

That being said, I think the kings will win this one.

Some of the worst umpiring I've seen in a professional game. Hats off to Adelaide, but that Fitzy lookalike ref should never referee another game in his life. We've had him two home games in a row, and I wouldn't let him referee a game of HORSE in my driveway let alone a game of basketball. If the NBL wants the product to match the talent, they need to look at those guys with the appropriate word "Dodo" on their backs.

Impressive resilient win from Sixers given the Kings would have been out for revenge on their home floor and having to overcome some favouritism from the refs.

Sobey unbelievably efficient from the field and some of his D on Lisch and rebounding was top class.

Not sure how you can't say the Sixers aren't deep as stated in earlier threads. 39 points off the bench. Admittedly 18 came from Creek who played an awesome game however everyone on the bench can come on and make great contributions. Dengi Fever with a timely contribution (how nice is his stroke)today and others off the bench have made serious contributions in previous games.

Cadee and Whittington can hold their heads up high for the Kings. Not sure why Gaze didn't play Maric much (at all?) in the 4th. He had 4 fouls but surely it was worth playing him for some minutes given how impressively he was rebounding earlier in the game.

@673 great comment from the bathroom.

You are not at the game, didn't watch the game and therefore have no understanding on what everyone is talking about.

Initial call on Garlepp was not necessarily a foul however Deng does then knock into EJ, hence slowing him down. If Sydney ran a quick offence and the ball went to EJ's player open down the floor then Sixers would have been furious. So he made the call.

The Tech was unnessecary. He dropped the F bomb, big deal.. its a small crappy call in the biggest league in the country, accept an F Bomb in frustration that is on the floor. Not on the TV, not heard by the crows. Anyone who has spoken to Tom when he is on the floor knows he has no malleus even though is vocabulary can be colourful.

The mistake out of all of this. Tom never made contact with EJ, the contact was into Deng. Deng should have been the one on the foul line. We spent 70 seconds on Video tape to work out and then put the wrong player on the foul line.

The foul on a stationary screen set well and truly early was nothing more than a SHIT call. I don't even think it was a make up call. Wrong referee for a make up call, it was just a crap call by someone who probably shouldn't be out there.

Firstly, people who don't watch the game and have a modicum of understanding of the rules of the game shouldn't be commenting on others who do.

Secondly, the NBL is a struggling code that is competing for fans in this country. It has lost a significant portion of the fan base it had during its heyday. The ones who stayed, undoubtedly love it despite the failings and genuinely wish that it can not only survive but thrive.

You may get annoyed by the complaints about the officiating but it's just reflecting the disappointment and concern that genuine fans have for the well-being of the game. What was on show today was embarrassing and needed to be called out.

There is almost no accountability for the poor performance of these pathetic officials that have as much impact to the quality of the overall NBL product as the players, clubs and media. The horrible, amateurish level of officiating was not a one-off event either, at least 4 times this season and a major one last season that led to some rule changes. FYI, I assure you I'm not Mal Cooper in RL. ;p

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.

@Isaac, I watched the replay again and yeah Garlepp made a shoving motion but Jacobsen was way outside the reach of Garlepp's hand. Unless that was some superpower telekinetic push that Tommy had, Jacobsen probably just slipped.

I think Matt Townsend called the pushing foul from the Kings baseline which means he must have X-ray vision. Chris Clark saw Townsend's arm raised for the foul and called it as well probably to back him up.

"Please. Refs review a play, see its a bad call, can't change the call, but assign a tech foul when the player gets upset about it. Nice."

Actually no the bad call happened, Garlepp than swore at the ref so it was a correct tech foul. Sydney fans can't say "well it was a bad call so they shouldn't have called the tech foul" You swear at a ref in such a bad way you get a tech foul, simple. Newley should have got an unsportsmanlike foul with 3:33 left in the fourth when after fouling Sobey then sticks his knee out to trip him up which was right in front of the referee.


Other than that poor call on Garlepp the officiating wasn't that bad compared to other games this season. Yes, there was bad make up calls. Yes, there was soft calls however the officiating didn't affect the result. What affected the result was Sydney's inability to play consistent defense throughout the game with Adelaide shooting at 56% FG, 50% 3pt and 80% from the foul line! Even your coach isn't complaining about the refereeing.

I'm the dud. The suggestion was ages ago and was based on an idea to improve the balance of the team as opposed to a Sobey demotion. Do i still think the same after this unforeseeable run of form? No of course not. Am i happy to be proven wrong in regards to the lineup and improvements/adjustments from Joey? Yes. But stop misrepresenting what people have to say on this forum. Come up with something better than just dismissing people who have opposing views as duds. Surely you can do a bit better?

@Isaac, I'm not saying you were directly supporting what i said about Sobey but yes that was my thinking at the time in terms of balance. It was mainly the idea that Sobey could be used as a bench weapon while Randle was off. Of course i don't think that now.

I've nothing interesting or original to say when Adelaide are going so well but i have to congratulate them on waking up in a few key areas. Defensively, the team is so much better and they're running offence beautifully a t times. That home loss to Brisbane has really got them firing.

Thanks SteveK2.

Definitely not much depth. Drewy not sold on Moller clearly.

At their best they can be very good, but just can't afford injuries. I'd be playing Cadee and Lisch 35 mins each.

No it's not. If the retard refs got it right in the 1st instance there would be TF.
You really don't know a lot about the game KET.

KET said " I noticed Randle wasn't substituted at his normal time 2mins to go in 3Q until 7/8 mins to left in the 4Q"

I guess that's why you aren't their coach.

I really hope you don't play basketball, I can only imagine people having to deal with such a fool.

KET, value for Adelaide in keeping the streak alive, plus taking down a likely finals-bound opponent.


Agreed Isaac, I was hoping Joey would suspend his usual rotation and it paid dividends.

@Steve2k, thanks for posting that. Interesting that Sydney don't appear to be going to replace Blake. It's too early in a jam packed season to be running with 7 or 8 guys.

Kings need Khazzouh back ASAP, and really need backcourt help. Whittington had to play 40 minutes, tonight, because Newley was backing up Lisch and Cadee as well as playing 3. That, plus the short turn around from Friday night, is why the Kings looked so spent in this match, and a big part of how they lost.

Gaze clearly said it is what it is re replacement players, I think it probably got something to with the 5 players under 400g. He clearly took some of the blame for not playing his bench more earlier in the season and mentioned Moller specifically as being able to play but he has not allowed his bench the same latitude in mistakes as starters, you got play them to be able to learn, joey is a master of this, bevo and lemanis get done as well. Gazey iis new to top level coaching but he's a quick learner so hopefully kings make finals.

I can't see them winning the title without another guard, and can't understand why they aren't replacing Blake, there's thousands of options out there to fit any budget.

The kings lost to 36ers wasn't a sign they need a point guard but more so they need to defend in the half court and containing the likes of Randle, sobey and even creek.

There defensive liability is now being exploited with Lisch the only kings player that can defend the opposition guards.

Khazzouh most likely will not return this season and if he does won't be the answer for the kings on the defensive end.

The kings are in real danger of not making the finals.

Yeah it doesn't make sense. This is a big budget team, so odd that they haven't replaced Bryson/Blake

Dion Prewster is a guard but he hardly gets on, why sign him.
