Can't really figure it out.
You'd be hard pressed to argue he didn't deliberately tank tonight. Game on the line, and 5 of his worst players on the court.
But what's he aiming for???
Adelaide's loss to the Hawks, practically guaranteed then a finals spot, so potentially Adelaide could now face a team thy lost to 3 times, in either the SF or GF. ???
Loss to the Breakers gave them a sniff of finals, so Adelaide could face them in the semis. BUT they are the last team you would choose to face in the finals IMHO. ???
Maybe those two losses were not deliberate, but tonight certainly was. Why?
Just seems weird.
I guess if Cairns make it, that means somebody like Perth or MU won't. But (A) its too hard to pick who, and (B) does it really matter?
Be interesting to see what happens on Saturday. Maybe Joey plans to totally smash them, and build some momentum going into the semis?
