Buford & Petrie both out for the Bullets. I guess we'll never see Cam Bairstow back? His brother doesn't seem to be a DP anymore either.

No way Brisbane makes the finals. Too much of their offense is tough shots from Trice, and they aren't a good enough defensive team to stop the law of averages from kicking them in the behind more often than not.

At this stage of the game should Brisbane be running a halfcourt set where Trice just sits on the weakside not involved in the play?

The shot clock needs to hit 15 to be an eight-second violation. Debatable as to whether it was even at 16. Can't trust the Fox clock.

Their offence is a lot better when Buford is playing. They execute well most of the time and shoot a high clip.

Manu if you had any cred which you don't how many seconds from 24 is required to get an 8 SECOND violation? ie. 24 - 8 ='s how many? 15 would be the wrong answer. Arguably 14 is incorrect as well.

Does the clock stay on 24 for one second then go to 23 or does it go from 24 to 23 as soon as it's reset? With a shot clock that shows each .1 of a second Manu would be right, as the 8 seconds would be up when the clock shows 15.9, NBA is like that pretty sure, don't know if the Cairns clock shows the fractions of seconds in detail.
Does the shot clock in the NBL light up the instant it hits 0 or does it stay on 0 for one second then go off? That would answer the question.

Dude, you're the one person and you're talking to yourself. Pathetic.

Melbourne Boy, 16 is correct assuming that the time between the '24' and '23' count is a complete second. I have to assume that clocks aren't set to start at 24 seconds and skip to 23 right away

Shot clock in most countries shows 24 from 24.0 to 23.1 and then at 23.0 it ticks to 23. We know this because when it from 0.1 to 0.0 is when we see it change from 1 to 0.

16.1 would be displayed as 17 and then 8 seconds after the start it would tick to 16. So, seeing 16 would indicate 8 seconds.

In the NBA, their shot clock has tenths of seconds, so 23.9 is displayed as 23. After 5 it goes to 4.9 and shows the tenths.

Hence the eighth second hasn't finished until 16.0, but it's easier to see the change to 15 as it ticks to 15.9 in the NBA. NBA Refs use that as their instruction.

However, refs here are told not to use the shot clock as they can not guarantee it was started correctly by the bench. It is up to the refs to count it out. And definitely don't use the clock on the TV screen.

But you two are right in this instance. Just watched the highlights of this game and the '24' doesn't skip to '23' right away, it takes the full second to do so. So when the clock strikes '16', that marks 8 seconds.

Last word from me on this... this debate rests on whether the shot clock goes off the moment it strikes '0' or waits another second to go off. Pretty sure it goes off the moment it hits '0'. But can't be certain. 90 per cent sure.

Thanks again for your contribution, MB.

Pretty sure it goes off right on 0, but most ppl on this forum have probably watched more NBA than NBL, where you were correct and even if wrong down here is Aus, definitely not out of place raising the point. The NBL doesn't have a standard issue hoop/backboard/shot clock setup, it's different at each venue as well which means we're probably not even sure.

Ok does anyone have any inside info? Weeks starting over Smith makes sense knowing how much Fearne loves guys who stick to the system etc, and Scoochie can be irratic. But he just had 13 points in 9 mins??? What's the deal? And given Cairns have 8 games left is he on the way out?

Reply #664517 | Report this post


Manu Fieldel  
Earlier this year

I don't think anything is 'going on' per se. Scoochie doesn't give it his all at trainings and for Fearne to bench a starting PG isn't outside his MO. He did it for Jamar Wilson, as was talked about recently here. Did he do it for Starks?

Scoochie is simply better suited to the bench role. Takes the pressure off the first-year pro and he has more scope to do his thing. He looks like a spark-plug player rather than a floor general who you can rely on to make your team great, at this point in his career anyway.

Duncan

Agree With everything you say about him being a bench spark plug, and he has come off the bench the last few games but 9 mins, especially when you have 13 points, is very low. And considering he is on an import wage surely you'd have to at least consider a change i.e Edwin last year

He's on the way out. Scoochie doesn't seem able to run the team within Fearne's system. Fearne's given up on him as an effective PG and is trying to squeeze some value out of him by playing him from the bench so he can just focus on scoring.

I'm also fucking sick of watching Jerry Evan Jnr and his 12.5% shooting tonight, his game is so one-dimensional he's in constant danger of folding up into himself and disappearing.

Manu and Melbourne Boy are right. The 24 second clock is essentially 24.9 ie it takes a second after its reset to hit 23, meaning that if the ball is in the backcourt and the clock hits 15, then its a violation.

16

At the 16th second, it would have been 8 seconds from a fresh 24.

If the ball is still in the back court at 16, it is a violation, it hasn't crossed to the front court after 8 seconds.

Kobe in the US when the clock first shows 15 it's 8 seconds, here it's when 16 first shows.

And there is no standard hoop setup in the NBL, the clocks timing mechanism may be set the same as stated above but every venues display/support setup is different. Some venues have a 4 sided shot clock above the backboard, some have a different clock above the backboard plus a seperate two sided clock on the supports behind visible from the corners of the court, Hisense arena only has a single sided shot clock above the backboard which you can't even see on TV, so there is no standard at all.

All the clocks function the same, which is all that's relevant to this discussion. Which way they're facing and how they're laid out is irrelevant, as is the NBA rule.

The Perth Arena clocks are capable of the NBA-style function, but it's disabled - presumably due to NBL rules requiring uniformity in function.

FIBA is mandating tenths of a second on the shot clock in the next few years, although I doubt it'll be implemented in the NBL for some time after that.

Pretentious again, Kobe. When the 'big' number is 15, it signifies eight seconds. Surely doesn't have to be spelled out for you.

I agree with Duncan's questioning of Scoochie's minutes last night. His one stint on the court in the first half was very good and after 7 minutes of court time he had 10 points, had just nailed a 3 and was rolling but Fearne then removed him. In the 3rd qtr, Scoochie didn't make it back on court until there was less than 3 minutes to go and was removed at 3/4 time and was given no further minutes.

It seemed to me that Fearne got the shits with him about the last Taipans play of the qtr where Scoochie decided he would run down the clock and do an iso play which ended up resulting in no points for the Taipans and a 2 point lay up at the other end for Brisbane. He should of been brought back on at some point in the last quarter in my opinion as the Taipans were slowly letting Brisbane back in the game and Weeks was tiring after having spent the majority of the 2nd half on court.

I'm not sure what Scoochie has to do (and he probably doesn't know either). He was benched against Illiwarra and responded to the point he brought us back into the game in the 2nd half and had a big hand in keeping us in it, yet the next game against the Wildcats he didn't play huge minutes and last night he mostly did everything required of him, yet is given less than 10 minutes game time because the coach chucks the shits with him and we then go on to do our very best to lose the game.

I don't agree that Scoochie is a spark plug type of player and think that description fits Weeks better however we are all entitled to our opinions and I certainly don't claim to know it all where basketball is concerned.

I just think it is a major flaw in Fearne's coaching in that he can be so focussed on getting his point across to a player (generally an import) that he loses sight of the what is best for the current game situation.

Who's to know what's actually going on, but Fearne's treatment of Scoochie is not out of the ordinary. Maybe Podge can shed some light, he seems to be inner circle.

But yeah, it is a flaw in Fearne's coaching. If a guy is hot, he's hot. Keep him in. He's killed the confidence of many an import with his hard nature. Performing and confidence is a two-way street, especially for kids. Fearne needs to be more nurturing. But he is getting better, I'll say that.
