Breakers-Perth Make or Break Time
This is a clash of the pretenders.
Both teams have shown they could be finalists in waiting. But nothing is for certain.
Perth have always given us fits with their aggressive defence and our ball handling woes.
But Perth have always struggled to shake us and when it has come down to close games we have usually had the edge.
Perth are better placed now with the addition of Cotton offensively. He gives them a ball handling "go to guy" down the stretch.
Dillard is the Breaker response and he seems to be well equipped to do the same job and he is probably more valuable to the Breakers.
Penney and Akiil Mitchell have really benefitted from Dillard being aboard.If Carter will settle for throwing up 7 or 8 threes and the odd drive to the hoop, that could be all that's required to get us over the line.
Pledge will put pressure on Knight and MacKay.
Loe will get half a dozen open looks.
Promises to be a titanic struggle.Perth D vs Breakers O.
Breakers at home to hang on by 6.
