Excited for the game for sure but does anybody think there is a situation where Trev will call for Dexter to come on, would Adelaide fans love to see that or do you just think that Trev will just keep him on the bench ?

I'd like to see him used as a spark off the bench if the game starts like United/bullets game and fans are feeling a little underwhelmed and the crowd have had nothing much to cheer about as neither team can buy a basket. Dexter comes on and the place erupts as he stands next to Teys... that would be terrific

The last eight Adelaide home games have resulted in 194 fouls called on the visiting team and only 133 on the home team . Also 11 opp. players have fouled out to Adelaides ZERO.. smells like a sunday roast for the Adelaide dirty floppers...

Perth should be allowed more people on their bench to help 'hold back" the players if there's another scuffle. At least make it look believable that they are actually being held back this time.

I can't imagine there will be any incidents this time anyway. The high standard of NBL officiating should keep things calm....

Hehe, all good. If Perth can bring the intensity and fight it will be a good game. Adelaide I find to struggle when things ain't rolling.

Perth may be flopers but very rare they get involved in physically or hurting player's.

Adelaide celebration after every point and game is like a game 5 of a grand final. Both coaches should get teed up before the whistle.

Personally I think a blowout either way

There are 3 certainties in life.

Death, taxes and this being the tightest game called all season after the rumble in the jungle Friday night. If anyone breathes on their opponent it will be a foul, could even wind up being unsportsmanlike.

This could end up favouring the Sixers though. In fact, Damian Martin might get fouled out before half time. And Matty Hodgson might foul out in a minute's worth of courtime.

If Adelaide are going to win this afternoon they have to hit towards 50% from range and make 20+ attempts.

The rest of our game will be fine if we can do that.

I don't know if they need to do that much to win today, but if that team is hitting at 50% from outside on that many shots then they're not going to lose to anyone.

I think their best chance of winning is to go with an all-trolling starting 5 of Larkins, Teys, Drmic, Shorter & Creek, and play that combo for as many minutes as possible, with Sobey & Childress off the bench for some quality backup trolling.

Haven't noticed myself but will keep a look out for it.

To me it looks like he comes on for Martin and plays the same role on offense to not disrupt the other guys.

Martin/Kenny basically start off the play then become spot up shooters. I’d be happy to see Kenny go in more, he has a big body for guards to stop.

Great comeback game from Adelaide. Gave up too many points in the second half though. I don't like when Joey calls off the transition game so early to use up time. Whenever he does it we have missed shots, turn overs and inevitably go backwards. Would have been better to keep up the tempo, win by more and keep our percentage higher.

Three point shooting poor again and if we don't improve that we just might get found out come finals.

Mitch Creek, you played a fantastic game but you gave up on three, clear three point opportunities which you should have taken. Confidence comes from practice and your three point game will affect your NBL opportunities. Well done all round though.

Not that the call had any real impact on the situation anyway. If it's a normal foul call Childress probably hits the freethrow and Adelaide gets 3pts; instead he had to earn 2 points from the line and they turn it over.

Definitely not an unsportsmanlike, should have been an and 1. The ref can be heard saying it was obvious when the other ref asks if it should be reviewed, not sure how that was an 'obvious' unsportsmanlike.

Don’t understand the rest of the whingeing on here about the refs, there really wasn’t that many other bad calls I could see apart from that phantom foul on Teys. It’s a pity when game threads like this one get taken over one-eyed posters lacking intelligence. Speaking of intelligence, Tokoto played a very low IQ game, you don’t just shove a guy on a rebounding contest when you already have two fouls in the first half. Him going to the bench is when Adelaide took control.

Good to see the Sixers rebound after the loss and awful third quarter on Friday and an important win as home court is obviously going to be vital in the playoffs. The 36ers defensive intensity is far better at home than on the road and that’s the main reason for their previous two losses and then why they got the win today. Joey needs to find a way to get the team to improve the defensive intensity on the road if a championship is to be had.

They did this to Illawarra last season and it didn't end well, both team's are at fault. No need for suspensions but 4 days later and still talking about it. Bet next time Perth will probably go for that knockout.

Adelaide is a great squad but very cocky and think they are the best team in the league. For all the issues Perth has had and still a chance to finish second with only 2 scores 100% are going ok.

Time will tell for both team's, Perth hasn't clicked well for most part of the season.

Perth’s history of dirty behaviour is why everyone else is brushing aside Perth fan base hysterics, I think that’s a point you’re struggling to get.

"Perth's history of dirty behaviour"

Still yet to provide anything specific.

The hysteria is because this isn't the first time that Adelaide have started a fight (in Perth) in the dying seconds, at the end of a blowout loss. Just like last time, this one wasn't their fault either. Can you remind me when Perth did that last?

Um, you do realise that it was actually a Perth player that came flying in and started the fight, right...?

"Um, you do realise that it was actually a Perth player that came flying in and started the fight, right...?"

I think both parties are equally to blame. What Teys did was completely unnecessary, and DKD understandably took issue, but ultimately escalated it.

The issue (which KET can't seem to get his head around) is why is Joey acting all innocent and pretending that his team is completely innocent and were just provoked? Which player in the league wouldn't react the way DKD if he saw his teammate, in the dying seconds of his first game, get shit-mixed for absolutely no reason when he was airborne? Why is this a recurring theme for the Sixers, where they think its ok to start shit when they lose but then blame everyone else?

Joey isn't acting innocent. What he said was he doesn't think Teys deserves 2 games for an incident that wasn't as bad as others (in his opinion) from throughout the game. He agreed it was absolutely an USF but doesn't believe it warrants 2 weeks suspension. The appeal, from that I can gather, will include other incidents from the game as comparison.

What he's saying is that there was a reason why Teys did what he did, not that someone got "shit-mixed for absolutely no reason".

Whether or not he should have said anything prior to the appeal is another thing, but he's not acting like Adelaide was innocent in the whole thing. And he was also very high in his praise of the Perth franchise, but I guess that's been lost somehow..

Why is this a recurring theme for the Wildcats, where they think its ok to start shit but when someone stands up to them they blame everyone else?"

Teys picked on someone smaller - a DP.

Teys should have gone after Walker, that would make sense.

Teys was just frustrated and took his aggression out on an innocent DP.

that's what I am still waiting for an answer about as well. what did cummings do in his career total of 5 seconds on court prior to that incident that warranted that kind of thuggish response? still yet to hear a 6ers fan justify it

Yes I see that you completely missed the point. Are you really trying to say that Teys was justified for hitting Cummings, because Walker allegedly hit Larkins (an incident where no footage exists)?

Snooch, yeah anonymous is doing a strawman argument which is why it's funny that I supposedly can’t get my head around an argument I haven’t even touched or engaged in.

Anon also pulled the "we are talking specifically about X incident" while also saying “provide specifics of instances”.

DKD still started the fight even if he was provoked to protect his teammate he still started it. Which I don’t think Is something to complain about anyway

If you really didn't see Walker get an USF for throwing Larkins around like a rag-doll a couple of minutes earlier, then I can't help you.

But no, my point (much like KET) was that you can't blame Teys for DKD's actions any more than you can blame Walker for Teys'. And that you shouldn't whinge about your DP getting clobbered after your team just clobbered a DP.

So in short, you can't provide any specifics of Perth being dirtier than anyone else, you want to keep throwing that blanket assessment around and we should just accept its true, but at the same time, due to this unspecified information, no Perth fan can ever complain about the repeated childish actions of one team/coach because of it?

And if someone challenges your opinion, just call it a strawman and ignore the crux of the issue. Man, you and Joey have got this victim-hood down pat!

Teys hit Cummings, DKD hit Teys in response.

Walker hit Larkins, Teys hit Cummings in response.

I don't think I need to explain why those two scenarios are different.

That makes no sense. DKD was obviously responding directly to what Teys did whereas Teys taking out the DP for what Walker did to Larkins 10 minutes earlier is ridiculous.

The only reason Walker took Larkins down was because Creek pushed Martin in the first quarter. See how silly that sounds, fleabag?

Both were charged with intentional, high impact, body contact. I wonder which point Teys was able to argue down? Probably high impact.

You're arguing arguments we aren’t even arguing and you’re completely lost on a sequence of logic, there’s not much we can do it’s like reasoning with a wall of bricks.

Teys one game, DKD 2 games - sounds reasonable.

This was entertaining but I'd now going in circles

Perth fans (I’m one); most of the league hates you, it comes from supporting a successful team that plays a style that isn’t flashy and tends to blur the lines between legal and not. You are loud, passionate and arrogant. You’re team will be blamed for any and all happenings on the court...get over it.

Adelaide fans; Perth fans hate you’re team. Over the span of 25 years we have the best rivalry of any 2 teams. In the past your team has played flashy arrogant basketball that tends to annoy us Perth fans especially when it’s in our building where you’re players (and coach) have been involved in 3 dust ups. We will blame you for everything...get over it.

Punishments are correct and I think both sides should be happy no player of any value got suspended.

Every person has an opinion and wtf has grammar got to do with anything? It's a hoops forum not an essay.

Just remember who is the most successful team in the nbl history.

When you reach our level then there might be time for a discussion.

Creek and co have more wooden spoons than trophies, might as well hang them on the rafters.

Remember that time when there was a basketball league that had been around for 40 years? Where any team but one that was any good/successful kept folding or struggled through years of financial hardship? One team managed to win 8 times because all the competition kept disappearing.

How many teams no longer exist that have won championships in this league? Plus the fact that Brisbane and Sydney weren't in the league for a number of years after earlier winning championships.

Nobody is arguing the amount of wins. The point is that there have been many teams that could have been in the same position or better now but they no longer exist due to financial issues. And there is a lot.
