Earlier this year
Sixers v Taipans, Jan 11
The last time these teams played Taipans double dacked the Sixers on their home court. Tonight, with teams at full strength it will be a different story. Jawai is back and this will prove a head ache for the Sixers big men. The key might be as congested as a coal miner's lungs. Sixers now have Moore back on the team and showed everyone last round they are serious about playing finals. I'm excited to see Jawai back, but hope he needs another game to find his full form....
Lose this game and Cairns are in more trouble than Craig McLachlan at a music festival with Harvey Weinstein as his wingman.
Alex Loughton had a shocker against New Zealand last round and while I would normally wish Cam Glidden his success (33/33) at the stripe continues, he is not playing the Wildcats, so let’s hope the number 33 is the jinx he needs at Adelaide Arena. Let him celebrate this milestone with a free burger to all those attending this game. That’s one way to win over the away crowd.
It’s hot in Adelaide today so it could work in the Snakes favour, but I think this game might just see them fall short.
Sixers all the way.
