Adelaide v Illawarra Nov17 Game Thread
Afternoon game today and on 9Go as well.
Sixers are on that slippery slope battling Cairns for a lump of coal to go in the trophy cabinet at season's end. The export of one import, means a new one arrives and excited Sixers fan will be done the old Conger line around the stadium.
Illawarra are stumbling along, with 1 from 4, but their last 3 losses were against Perth, Melbourne and Sydney (who seem to have turned a corner and making a charge from the rear). The secret on the NBL is the bench. For Adelaide, the X factor is Deng and he has not had the season he had last season. For Hawks, the X factor is the ever young Anderson who must get blood transfusions from a 10 year old boy to stay so vibrant..
This is Adelaide's game to lose, both teams are hungrier than a fat kid on a diet. If Adelaide loses this one, Joey might as well just start Adam Doyle for the rest of the season.
