Boxing Day: Brisbane @ Melbourne

Well, here it is. With Bairstow out, it's lost a bit of its lustre. Is Craig playing?

Melbourne should win comfortably.

Shame about the weather not allowing the roof to be open.

Hopefully it's a cracking game.

Are you aware of this thing called 'the Internet'? It's a series of tubes invented by Al Gore. It's pretty neat, you should check it out some time.

No one mentioned any game. The forecast for rain doesn't always mean the roof will be closed either.

The roof is officially closed. Will instead be open February 6 vs Illawarra.

Is it possible to play in the rain or would the court be too slippery?

Spidercam could be good for another perspective on some replays but should not be used in game.

I agree. It's a very crappy camera angle. Does the NBA ever do it? No. So why do the producers think it's a good way to broadcast the NBL this way? Not everything has to be the same as the NBA obviously but at least get the basics right.

Spider cam is designed for big venues not small basketball stadiums. Save you money NBL on head spinning vertigo inducing unwatchable ideas. You tried it and it failed.

Brisbane not a great choice for a showpiece game. Easily the most boring side in the NBL and not that good either

In regards to Brisbane being boring they have been very good in regards to competing but now no bairstow makes them really weak. Don't think the nbl is too worried about the Melb united boys having a sell out and pumping an opponent. I'd prefer to have Christmas lunch with dazz and redhage before bringing this spider cam back though!

As a general philosophy I don't mind them trying out new things in the name of improving the TV product, but yeah spider cam has been predictably pointless.

Gibson is a problem for the Bullets. Takes too long to get them into an offensive set IMO. Their offense makes for tough viewing.

They look good when Bruce is in as they tend to flow more and get easy basketa. But the flipside is that he gets a bit too out of control sometimes and not settled.

Boone with his strong rebounding and energetic inside play appears to have shored up one area where United could have been exposed.

5-2 since Ware arrived and most of those wins without either Blanchfield or Andersen.

Melbourne's recruitment of Ware and Boone has turned them into championship favourites.

I don't mind the spider cam to get to court level behind a player when he's shooting a free throw (similar to the way I've seen it used for the AFL Grand Final where you get to see it from the players view when they have a set shot). But when play is "live" I prefer the traditional angles.

United are not favourites. Great revenge win over a depleted and flat Brisbane but they are not title favourites. That's adelaide as of right now.

When Randle, Sobey and DJ fire the 6ers can beat anyone.
Aside from TFerg not much else worth getting excited about.

United have loads of different options and combos that work....way too inconsistent though. Let's see them string 8 in a row like the 6ers.

It's not how you play in December that counts. It's how you play in February and March.

Things are starting to look up for United. Their biggest issue might be lack of cohesion due to lack of practice together. 3 starters having extended sits on the sidelines, 2 imports arrriving mid season. They've never had a settled line-up for any decent period of time.

If there is one thing we must learn from this season it is that the difference between a win or a loss is so tight and team balance is so critical that anyone can still get up for the finals, United are flying now but the season is what, half way in...!

Then fuck it, im kidding myself. But im not going to get all excited about United beating up on a less than fully functioning Bullets team. It was a bloodbath, but string some wins together on the road, then we can talk. But for now, im happy to be kidding myself a few games clear at the top of the table.
