Adelaide v Sydney Nov 10

Adelaide have a pretty good record against Sydney, so far.

Sydney are on the rise with good wins in 3 of the last 4 games. Sydney are jam packed of talent and it looks like the Bogie man has got the hang of the NBL with a couple of great games of late. He and Randle appear to be clicking. It's a match made in heaven just like Romeo and Juliet, or Mark Latham and Pauline Hanson.

Adelaide fans will be calling for Moore intensity from them today. The Sixers first halves have been exceptional, but something happens at half time and they are a different team. It's almost as though the rubber band giving them power gets forgotten to be wound up again during the break.

Sixers have gone for three strikes and would be keen to avoid a fourth. Joey sees to have the edge on Andrew Gaze, but are the Kings listening to their coach anymore?

Come On Sixers!

Surely this has to be a make or break game for David Wear? Don't know how he survives to next round if he doesn't show up today..

But knowing Gaze it will take him half a season to realize he is a dud before releasing him..

As much as I want my Kings to win, I feel like Adelaide are very desperate after dropping a few and will probably come up on top at home in a close one

36ers to get their confidence back by the league leading confidence building team 3 years running...

Bogues to get two techs and an early mark to the showers...

36ers to hit a season high in not being able to man up and stay on their feet and Joey pulls a controversial move and replaces them with a couple of Thunderbirds...

36ers by double figures before bringing on the bench to end up < double digit lead...

Even though the Sixers are 2-0 against the Kings this season I felt like we likely caught them at the right time before they had started to get going and they have been playing better lately and the Sixers have fallen away.

Kings by 7

I agree with Zodiac (although we did play good basketball in those two games). Added to it Moore coming back from injury and I doubt Deleon will be as effective as he was last game against them.

Bogut showing exactly why no nba teams wanted him, way too slow and is super arrogant. Perimeter players must lick their lips when they see bogut coming out to defend them. But bogut scores his only 2 points in the whole half and commentators can't stop talking about how goo he is. Yawn.

Hate to say it but Wiley is going under the radar in favour of Deleon being in the hot seat. Wiley was great on the Blitz, but since then has been average at best during the season. He looks like he could be a player, but just not cutting it at the moment. If that's where the majority of the money went, I’d be asking questions.

The fact that Bogut can dominate without scoring is kinda the whole point.

What's the limit on time you get on FTs to take a shot? De Leon is like 11or 12seconds each shot.

I expect Deleon will be gone soon.

You can't just expect to lose Mitch Creek, downgrade your point guard and remain a top team, when most other clubs have improved their rosters or remain comparable.

Relieved to get a win more than anything else, and great to see Newley playing aggressive again.

Froling looks like he's not long for this league. Surprised the Sixers kept him on the bench so long in the 3rd Q to be honest.

Joey's made some weird substitution decisions this season. We were getting nothing out of everyone except Froling ride the young guy.

Trigger needs to be pulled on Deleon quick smart.

43.2.3.
The free-throw shooter shall:
 Take a position behind the free-throw line and inside the semi-circle.
 Use any method to shoot a free throw in such a way that the ball enters the basket from above or the ball touches the ring.
 Release the ball within 5 seconds after it is placed at his disposal by the official.
 Not touch the free-throw line or enter the restricted area until the ball has entered the basket or has touched the ring.
 Not fake a free throw.

Adelaide need to make some changes. Deleon needs to go. And even though Moore is only fresh back from injury, I think he doesn't give enough for what Adelaide need. I'm also skeptical about keeping Sobey as point guard. Wiley needs more of the ball. He has so many weapons yet rarely is getting a chance to use them.

Johnson back to his frustratingly inconsistent self. This year's Sixers would lose to last year's Sixers by 20-30 points. Only harry Frolling can hold his head high today. The rest were woeful.

@ GordonG; thanks - 5 seconds, sheesh. I thought maybe 8 or 10. He's gotta be more than double that. I only counted on his last FT of the game, but I’d imagine it’s in the 10-11 second range every shot based on his routine.

Deleon had more points in less minutes at a similar clip to Sobey or Moore. He also had :
- More rebounds.
- More assists.
- More steals.
- More blocks.
- and ZERO turnovers.

Yet all you guys want to sack is Deleon?

You are right he should go.....he deserves better supporters.

Sobey came out with a knee brace and has been playing massive minutes on an existing injury. It is pretty obvious that with the hectic schedule that the start of the season was, he needs a break to work on getting back to full fitness. He looked flat all game today and that's unusual for Sobey. 36ers can’t afford to rest him though.

DeLeon arguably the Sixers 2nd best player today, but they need help at the 3 spot with Drmic not having the season they probably hoped for. Having a guy like DeLeon who gives you one good game out of 3 is not a luxury they can afford.

Would Drmic be one of the bigger letdowns for pro career coming out of college. Had a great career at Boise state and hasn't really translated to why we would have hoped to see at the pro level.

Good college ball players don't always translate into good professional players, Drimic basically had free rein at college and took as many shots as he liked. His defence is not that good either.

With this team to be a playoff contending team we really needed both Drmic & Deng to kick on. Drmic has a bit but Deng hasn't.

Sixers will lose every game if they can't hit 3pt shots. Froling hit all three of them today. None of the starters hit any, compared to Newley, Lisch, Randle and Adnam shooting over 50% for the Kings. Sixers defence gives so many open 3's it plays them into form.
Maybe Sixers should have recruited a cheap import big as backup for DJ and Froling instead of getting Wiley and spent all the dollars on a decent. Maybe weren't sure how Froling would go and anticipated him being the backup big.

Froling is a right light. Deng lost his confidence. Deleon is gone.DJ /teys struggling to get into a shooting pattern. Plenty of season to go but are Sixers in serious trouble. Need wins at home. Sobey looks sore to make matters worse.

Adelaide don't look confident shooting the three either. They hesitate instead of just letting it fire. The amount of times Deng should have just let fly instead of dribbling into awkward shot attempts. Even Drmic seems to hesitate when he is supposed to be a dead eye. I think at least a bit of this would come from Joey's philosophy of attacking the rim. It's not a criticism, just an observation.

When you watch Sydney and say someone like Adnam, you can tell they're confident by the way they just pull the trigger.

No Adelaide player seems confident shooting the 3, and if that's the case, then you'll keep getting the same result.

Adelaide need more balance.
