Taipans v Hawks, Nov 18

Jerry's back for the Porsche/volcano insano. And was it just me or did Fox Sports hint at a Jawai return for this one?

Will the Taipans drag Illawarra into the mud like they seem to do in that building or will the form lines ring true?

I assumed they were talking about Carrera coming back, Jawai was meant to be out until January?

No way Jawai is close to being ready. He's still in a moonboot.

It's complicated. He is not very good at basketball so his team doesn't play him much. If you can follow all of that then you're smarter than I am.

The Cairns locals must love their dance music, game has sounded like a nightclub so far.

Who does fox sports have doing the scoreboard.
They count 2;s as threes, they give points to the wrong team and when the ball got hit out of bounds they just decided to give cairns 2 points and the time on the shot clock is always wrong. Who are these people?

I wonder how it works. Surely there must be a button for 1, 2 and 3 points and the person must not understand the game or is drunk

Ogilvy has 5 points but stats show 1 point. Had 3 blocks against kings but got 2 on stats. Swear the oldies doing stats get him and Kay mixed up

Pretty handy minutes by Jerry Evans Jr for Cairns.

Good win by Cairns, when the shots drop they look ok, Loughton having his best season ever.
Refs did their best, especially little man Syndrome Matt,who has never forgiven Cairns for throwing empty cups at him, to keep the Hawks in the game, foul count 19 to 7, Hawks way. In fact, Cairns who was attacking the bucket for most of the last quarter,eventually got their first foul in the last minute of the quarter. Scot Butler must shake his head when he has to appoint these egotistically little men to ref nationally televised games.
The balance of the team seems better at the moment, but will be interesting to see how Mr Fearne goes when Carrera and Jawai come back.

Best defensive team in the league. Taipans always do this, but maybe just maybe we can make playoffs.

Snakes made the 1-3-1 zone look comical at times. Once Ogilvie was out the hawks had nothing. Rotnei scores 11 1st q then 1 FT for the remainder- think they figured him out ?

Looked like a great crowd, enjoyable game, not a Cairns fan but hope they make the finals, a poorly fund side that play hard and honest.

Egwu needs a little love for his game tonight, did a great job on the defensive end.

And maybe AJ needs to work harder on getting an aisle seat next time he's up here, he's hopeless any time he has to travel more than 2 hours in any direction

Cairns have had a few huge wins at home but they're still only 4-3 at home.

Hawks tired effort. Got in a rut and not good enough to turn it around. Cairns really shot well and would have beaten most on that performance.
Also home court was telling factor.
Lets see if they can back it up. I suspect not.
Glidden served it up to me again. Do it in 3 of the next 4 and I'll consider changing my mind.

Watching the replay and Ben, you're spot on haha. Pretty funny actually, the non-stop dance music. It is a party town!
