Sixers v Breakers, Dec 10
An early injury to Creeky was a setback to the Sixers and rumour is he is out today. I say put a felt hat on him and move him around the stadium like an Elf on the Shelf.
The Heart Breakers are top of the table and could slip to #2 with a loss. Sixers will tumble to 5th with a loss.
To be honest, I thought the Sixers were a bit ordinary on Friday night. (not Melbourne United ordinary, not even Sydney Kings ordinary - they weren't THAT bad) The injury to Creeky would have put them off the game, but stuff like that happens and good teams adjust. I hope they adjust today.
What can we say about those Heart Breakers? One thing for sure is they will be fresh. First game this round for them and they would have left the chilly Auckland weather behind for some fine sunny Adelaide weather. They've probably done a bit of shopping this morning in the CBD - Oh, that's right it's Sunday morning, shops are shut.....
It's a hard round for the Sixers playing 1 and 2 this round. I'm expecting those Breakers to get out of the blocks quickly and should go into the first break up by 5. Sixers need to come back strongly and run the safe plays each possession to get the points. It should be about taking risks today. Just get the job done. If they do that, Sixers by 3.
