Adelaide vs Cairns, Dec 24

The first ever Christmas Eve game today for the NBL with Daniel Johnson playing his 200th game for the 36ers. You have to feel for the Taipans having to fly back home on Christmas morning but a good move for the NBL to play on the 24th with not much on TV and potentially like the NBA on Xmas Day in the future. The game is on SBS & Fox and possibly NBL TV.

36ers by 12.

I have muted it but for a different reason than koberulz and seriously thinking about giving up on watching this league. It's Tragardh's voice - he sounds like a retard! How can you have such an awful voice on TV. WTF NBL! With Tragardh on I don't even notice Homicide.

I didn't see what the ref called against Deng, but I'm guessing it was for the body-contact - he didn't jump straight up.

That block call on Egwu by Aylen was shocking.

Turnovers and missed free throws are killing the 36ers. They're lucky to be within 10.

My conclusion about that "other site" is that it's probably one fat dude who has multiple personality disorder and has about five different nicknames who argues with and trolls himself constantly. Or the NBL has some special cosmic affect whereby complete narcissists are attracted to debating it online?

There was ONE BAD CALL in that last 3 minutes. One.

Poor day for Adelaide but they'll be ok once they get everyone back. This is close to the perfect game for Cairns, but Adelaide is still a better team overall.

Shake it off, get Mitch back on Friday and hopefully Moore and get back on track.

Sobey swore at ref so tech.

Was rough call agreed but difference is that ferne called timeout once weeks gets a rough call to settle players down.

Wright lets it go, Adelaide run mouths get more techs and fans blame refs for loss.

Yes but Shorter's contract is now fully guaranteed for the rest of the season so I can't see us releasing him then signing another import on top of that.

It was obvious reasonably early in the season he wasn't up to it as a starting PG.

Yes, Nelson is Wayne's son. They showed a highlights package of Wayne's career earlier in the game.

That play summed up Hodgson's season. Tries to put back a shot that was going in anyway and proceeds to blow the dunk.

And, again, refs today seem to get their feels all hurt every time someone swears. It's pathetic officiating. The good communicating refs this league used to have understood the emotions of the game and would allow players a little bit of rope and actually communicate with them instead of just teching everyone every time they say a bad word.

The sixers need to learn to shut up. They know refs are going to call reactions its not the nba. I admire what Joey achieves year in and year out but he doesn't produce disciplined teams and thats not going to get you the calls you want

That's the first decent game Loughton has had in at least a month. He had a couple early in the year, as did Weigh, and then they disappeared (Weigh went quiet before getting hurt). Loughton might have one or 2 more good games this season. Career night for Gliddon too

Why the Shorter hate? He bust a gut trying to lift the team. It's just that much of his effort didn't pay off.

And based on his few minutes on court, more Davis earlier would have improved Adelaide's performance, though not changed the result. At least he seems able to move his feet to make position, which Johnson, for one, could learn from.

I continue to despair about DJ. Even after 200 games he hasn't learnt to protect the ball, and continues to try to force his way inside [and loose the ball due to his weak hands and extended arms] in the usually vain hope of getting to the foul line when he could often take a neat little jumper from the elbow or block or mid-range base line, which are lower-risk shots he seems ideally equipped to take and capable of hitting.

Or isn't he being coached to do that?

Quite apart from anything else, making a few of those each game would open it up inside and make it easier to try to penetrate, if he must continue trying to do that.

And anyone else notice the amount of zone defense played in this game? A comment on the quality of the officiating or Adelaide's outside shooting?

What can be said about today's game Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha!

Sorry that should be Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho!

Umpires Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha! No surprises there. The only half decent referee in the comp is the female one from Brissy who does not anticipate and calls what she sees. Doesn't seem to have ego or testosterone issues. lol

Referees have been terrible for a very long time now and some serious reforms would be nice.

couple of positives.

Massive effort from Josh Childress he has pride not shown by any of the usual starters and bench. 20pts, 13 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals . He gave 100%.

Some fun and games from Larkin who also understandably made a huge effort.

Hodgson tried but was mugged under the ring and apparently doesn't have enough care factor to practice foul shooting in his own time. lol

Not just to pick on Hodgson on that matter as generally the Sixers shooting is totally woeful from anywhere further than 1 meter from the ring and that includes some of the injured players as well. Sobey 2/14! Put some work in son, Pride!

Who is the worst shooting team in the competition from range? Don't know the stats but looks like us to me.

Congrats to Cairns today. Outplayed us from inside and outside. Showed us what a team that has some pride individually can do. Bit of a shooting clinic.

Roll on 2018

sixers couldn't defend the 3 point line, actually couldn't defend to save themselves. Effort only from Larkin and Childress. Larkin showed in limited minutes what could be achieved by effort and hustle.

discipline is lead from the top and Joey isn't disciplined himself and nobody seems to own their own mistakes in the sixers team. numerous times Cairns would get called for a double dribble or a travel and they would acknowledge to their own team mates they made the mistake. Sixers get called and of course it should have been a foul.

sixers sook far too much man up for goodness sake get on with the game and stop blaming others for your own shortcomings

Sobey certainly wasn't listening to the coach today, a few times where he totally ignored him. guessing despite what is being said these two do not have a good working relationship. And seeing coach has a 5 year deal I'd say it will be Sobey moving on next season.

and for crying out loud, practice your foul shots seen U10 teams shoot a higher % from the free throw line sixers went to the line 14 times more than Cairns and shot at 50% shoot the 86% that Cairns did from the line and the game would have been much closer.

Realise we have injury but sorry teys is total liability. He cant shoot provides no leadership to inspire. Make creek the capt to give the team.on court voice. Need full roster to challenge. Clearly we hardest hit with injuries so need depth and bench doesnt provide enough x factors.

Sixers had a shocker and Cairns shot very well to backup their defence. Not time to panic yet but Sobeys consistency is a worry and body language doesn't look good, but Childress was great, just didn't have anyone to go with him.

Sobey needs to sort himself out. His body language dead set give away. Players both teams feed off of the vibes.thats why need the strong on court leader to huddle the boys and focus on the team. Joey only got timeouts cant burnt one to get players to do head checks.strength of randles was he led with actions. Who doesnt that now. Dj tries but he not a born leader.obvious its up to the creek even with a paddle
