I don't think Perth or NZ are playing in bad form atm, it’s just most of the other teams have started to get in form, particularly Hawks, 36ers, United.

This game bookends Round 14. Will it be a disappointment round for Perth? lets grab some popcorn and watch.

Kickert out means someone will have to step up for Brisbane, but Brisbane have fresh legs after a full week off and when Brisbane play they seem to be in it for most of the game, except for a brain fade in the 4th Quarter.

Perth will need to come out and be ruthless if they want to win. I'm thinking the fresh legs of Brisbane might keep them in the game in the 4th quarter and if they can be smart for 3 quarters and be within touch, we might just see an upset

Wildcats looking woeful in this game. Yes they are tired but they are struggling for offense. To reliant on Cotton and Tokoto, who are great players but need help. They are too trigger happy with early jump shots, they are not challenging the Hrisbane defense at all. Looks like they lose by 25 today and maybe down to 4th spot.

Homocide was spot on when he asked where else do they get offense from in the United game the other night. Their usually excellent defense is patchy lately also.

Kenny is absolutely a liability. The fact that he can shoot but usually won't take an open look is incredibly frustrating. He is lazy...pass it to someone else to take the accountability. He is also part of the reason wildcats are so poor when Martin is out. As with each of the last two years I hope they move him on at season end.

Even when Brisbane were up 15-20 I had no doubt in my mind Perth would come back and win this game. The Bullets turn to shit when the pressure gets put on them and no team is better than Perth and executing both offensively and defensively down the stretch.

After the Trice shot that seemed to seal it I thought here comes Perth lob to Tokoto for the game winner at the buzzer or something. If Manu or anyone else was wondering why Cotton is the highest paid player in the league wonder no more.

Comfortably the best player Angus. Who's the next best? Randle? I'd take Cotton over Randle any day of the week.

Again it's annoying how much he coasts through games but that's because he knows in crunch time he can get any shot he wants any time he wants. In the short time Cotton has been here I've seen him do this stuff a number of times now. It's not luck or just happening to get hot at the right time he just knows he's a level above.

@ Zodiac; Even on the same roster, I think Tokoto is a better overall player than Cotton with how he impacts the game across the board. Not nearly at Cotton's level when it comes to volume scoring, sure, but overall he does a lot of things at a high level. I think Trice is better than Cotton overall, and Randle is at least close but I'd give the edge to Cotton.

@ Kobe; disagree completely. Put up the shot with 2 seconds left and don't give Perth a chance to win the game. If you miss, so be it.

Keeping the pressure on, we know United and breakers play 3 times, Perth always go shit at some stage of the season.

Perth would be happy to finish top 2, just great seeing clutch play's from the imports this season, he misses that then cotton is average?

Always a clutch player but he needs help, and Kenny and Cooke played to a T what the are meant to.

Had a play around with the stats on the app with shot charts. Brisbane made 4 shots in the paint the entire second half, considering I remember a breakaway dunk that leaves 3. Not sure if there was another fast break or not.

That is pisspoor coaching when 19points up in the third. Get in, get the close shots or get the fouls (which were definitely getting called consistently). That's how you manage big leads. Wildcats defense turned the screws on perimeter shots, and if it wasn't for Trice hitting several buckets from range with a hand in his face they would have lost by 10.

I can't agree with much of that mate. The only thing Tokoto is better at than Cotton is dunking, he's a poor man's Prather. I really like Trice I was thinking today I hope he stays here and even re-signs with the Bullets because aside from being trapped in Fearne's system last season he's a star. He's tough he's got guts and that Bullets team needs to keep him badly.

Regular season vs regular season I might agree with you on Trice but for cold blooded execution down the stretch I'd take Cotton over him. I'd rather Trice on my team because Cotton's coasting/arrogance puts me off him but that's because he's the closet thing to money and being unguardable in crunch time and he knows it.

On Randle he showed again late in the game yesterday why he's not a team player and too self-centred. Trying to turn the game into a one on one battle between he and Shorter and a couple of times late after getting fouled avoiding the Kings huddles to walk right through a couple of Adelaide huddles. It was only a small thing but it spoke volumes of Randle and what he's all about.

DCJ looked like he was having a very ordinary game but was 4/4 and had 8 points, 9reb, 4 steals, 1 block and no turnovers in 27 minutes. That's a pretty decent game from the Cookie Monster. He has a very unorthodox shot, some of them look like wild shots but they don’t even look like missing. Even his FTs look ugly.

I hope he sticks in this league because I think he can develop into a great player.

If you thought he was having an ordinary game, you are worried too much about points.
His ability to hold down the paint whilst the Wildcats were in a pressing defence was vital to the win. He was helping on the perimeter and recovering to the paint well.

How good was Perth's defence, especially that possession when they denied the pass with the ball just over the half. Imo Perth and Adelaide are the only two teams capable of locking down the defence like that which will win them games.
As for leaving too much time on the clock, shooting around the 5-6 second mark is ideal, allows tip in. No player is truly worried about leaving 4 seconds on the clock, takes an almighty effort to score in that time. Ridiculous that Trice is being blamed a bit.

The Cats have had a very tough schedule lately. They've were on the road for a month. They finally get a home game but it's on the Friday after a road double, and less than 48 hours later they're back in Brisbane playing again.
I thought it was extraordinary the way they willed themselves to out-work the Bullets today. That was some serious mind-over-matter shit IMO.

This coming weekend it's another home-away double (albeit the Kings), and then finally the following round they have just a single game, at home, to recharge the batteries.

But after rediscovering their defensive intensity today I'm picturing it happening from the opening tip this Friday. Sydney would be feeling a bit better about themselves after the way they competed with Adelaide, but it could be a bloodbath in Perth Arena on Friday night if the Cats are at full strength.

Hawks are the team no one wants at the moment. Thewere a massive choke job of being on a 6 game wining streak .

Surely you've got to get Buford on to Cotton for the last defensive play? Gibbo played it well but doesn't have the hops to make that last shot as hard as PB would have.

Good point, Chairman. Buford blocked one of Cotton's prior shots so cleanly that Cotton didn't even flail around, mimicking a seizure, trying to get a foul called. You know it's clean then.

It's a guessing game though, if Buford marks Cotton who marks Tokoto. Brisbane celebrate the win with 4 seconds left, game was certainly not over.

Buford started on Cotton, who imbounded and received the hand-off back from Walker, at that point Gibson switched as Bryce had gapped Buford who was also a chance to get hooked up on Waxy and allow an open look.

Gibbo defended it very well, got body on him and made him shoot a fadeaway over a hand, credit to Cotton for getting the job done. The real issue is how scared Brisbane played for so long in the second half, inexcusable.

What a comeback from Perth, but what a way to snatch defeat from victory by the Bullets.

They had that game in the bag, but if you don't want a win, don't tease your fans.

minor detail I noticed, but what was with the whole crowd sitting down on that final play? I would have thought most home teams would have gotten everyone up of their feet making some noise and chanting if your team needed 1 defensive stop to win the game with 4sec to go.

Noticed the same with the crowd, more enthusiasm in putting off a first quarter freethrow for free cheeseburgers.
