Perth at Cairns - 17 November, 2018 - Game discussion thread

Even though they're playing the 1-6 Taipans, playing on a long road trip without 3 starters represents a danger game for Perth. They might still have the quality to get it done though, depends if Cairns are switched on or not.

Less flying time because you go as the crow flies through Alice rather than across to Brisbane then up. The only direct flight from Perth to Cairns is by Jetstar (which is cramped even for normal people but usually my choice) and the virgin and Qantas connections thru Brisbane aren't as reliable as you'd like

On paper you would think that Perth should cream Cairns and then enjoy a day on the reef on Sunday.

Massive danger game for the floppy cats. They are down 3 and that hasn't stopped them in the last few games, but Cairns are due. It's not like they are playing really, really bad basketball, they are just playing really bad basketball. Trimble is leading the league in scoring, but who is there to help?

Cairns are the lowest ranked team offensively (85.7 ppg) and that is because they are the lowest ranked shooting % team. Turnovers, yeah, worst at that too, assists #7, but the rest of the teams stats, they are mid pack.

I don't think they are disgracing themselves, they just don't know how to hook up with the pretty girl on the last dance of the night. They are left to go home by themselves.

When a team is putting up rubbish shots, it is a spiral of doom. They lose their confidence and have missed the shot before they even start dribbling. That's the time they need leadership to slow the game down and make sure the shot on goal that possession counts.

In NBL the average FG shots is 72.85 per game (yeah, I'm the 0.85...) and FTA is 20.3. You move your FG% up 3%, that's an extra 4.5 ppg FG and 0.6 FT. It adds 5 ppg.

Add 5 ppg to Cairns and they are in the top 4.

The only reason cotton tried to stay with trimble was because they are battling it out for the scoring title in the league. 100% if that was any other player on court cotton would have just let them go. Selfish cotton almost cost his team the game.

Funny point from the game was when the dopey sounding commentator not sure what his name is said in overtime to get jawai back in the game after his man just scored the first 10 points for perth in the extra period. Jawai was a disgrace how unfit and slow he was getting beaten in every way imaginable.

Beaten by a back cut
Beaten by being out rebounded on the offensive end
Beaten by jump shot
Beaten by driving straight past him because he is too slow on the close out
Beaten by hook shot in the post

That was all in the first 3 minutes of overtime and that commentator wanted him back on the court. Is there something wrong upstairs with that bloke?

I'm liking that Hire is getting back on the boards, he has really stepped up in the absence of the 3 starters.
But not sold on his perimeter defence, and I just cry every time he jacks up a 3.
Why do we persist in those plays?
He, Vague, and even Wagstaff, just so much more effective in the paint.

Very ugly game to watch, and not sure how much longer Perth can keep this up.
Are we going to get anyone back for next week?
How much longer can our luck hold out, without some backup. Lucky Jervis lasted as long as he did, cos all it will take is an early foul-out, or an in-game injury, and we'll be stuffed.

And oh, for the record, Norton has saved our arse big-time in Martin's absence.
You have to give full credit to a guy that was prepared to come across and start on the bench.

J you might want to go back and look at your blatant double dribble and firstly keep an eye on the clock and then have a good look when they cut back to Melo. He allows the ball to bounce and advance before taking the ball just before half court. This is when the clock starts. He takes possession and crosses of Hire. Not the slightest hint of double dribble on this play. Not one Wildcat even slightly remonstrated. But you keep picking the refs up on blatant legal plays. Nice work.

Trimble deliberately fouls with about a second to go in the first quarter with his team in the bonus. I think that was the dumbest play of the night, even though there was stiff competition and LV would tell you the resulting point wasn't worth very much ;-).

More a strategic decision than a dumb play. It's something you see in Europe, they'll foul at some strange times because they want the ball in their hands to control the clock late in games. I don't have a problem with that decision, even though it's not what I would do, but fouling Cotton wasn't the best idea.

What is alarming as a Taipans fan is the bs coming from the board.

The refusal to offer Fearne a new contract was about a new direction aka entertaining style of play.

Ok their prerogative but now that new direction has been shown to be impractical in a small market they are suddenly about building a foundation for future years.

Ok so what foundation is being built??

Historically, foundations in the NBL relate to young Aussie talent that you try to retain. Not likely 1 and done back court imports and an ageing front court.

It was a dumb strategic decision, though.

And yeah, I figured when the rules came out there would be an interesting adjustment period in terms of late-game strategy. Advancing the ball isn't terrible, as if you score you're in the same situation just with less clock. But fouling...no. That was a huge error, and were it not for Cotton suddenly turning stupid it would've directly cost them the game.

Everyone involved in that game should receive lifetime bans from all of professional sport.

Perth left 3 players behind because they had 3 in already Cairns with whistles.

Absolute joke tech on Nate when Jervis knocked it out of his hand. That alone gift point means Taipans win with 4 point play at the end.
Newbill lands in court when he catches the ball, another stitch up by macho ref. Kay carry's the ball in first half on the break(no call) Waxy funmbles ball on the break it's a carry.

What about the Tech foul on Jervis that fouled him out? You can't tell me that was any where near being a foul. So there were dodgey calls on both sides. Its easy to be one eyed when your team is playing. It appeared to me that Perth were getting the raw end of the calls... but I know it probably wasn't the case.

He had never dribbled so how is it a double dribble? He waited till the last second to pick the ball up and then took control of the ball. To double dribble you must complete a dribble first.

The Tech foul on jervis was karma for the tech foul he drew on Jawai earlier.

Perth left 3 players behind because they had 3 in already Cairns with whistles.


Whilse we are picking and choosing....

Why don't you also blame Trimble for deliberately fouling at the end of Q1 whilst in the bonus? Thats also worth one point.

Why don't you also blame Trimble for trying to call a fking time out on the floor to avoid the 5 seconds?

The Tech on Jervis was equally silly and cancels out the Nate one.

The Wildcats did everything to give Cairns the win including leaving 3 of 5 starters out, 1 of which was their second highest scorer.

Then there was the Cotton brain fade, even in OT with Jervis (another starter) lost (thats four) Cairns still managed to find a way to fk it up.

In the meantime, Nate (who was supposed to be 15 kilos leaner and fitter than his Wildcats days) could hardly get across half way.

Accept didn't play well enough to close it out.

Lose with (some) graciousness please.

Kind of funny Perth fans with their undies all in a bunch. What are you trying to defend? You won! No matter what you defend or find as A, B or C you still won. Mind boggling.

What? It was started by someone whinging about Perth getting all the favourable calls. Why are you singling out Perth fans?

Why are Perth fans replying? You won! Isn't that the thing. You have nothing to defend or deflect, you won. Why lower yourself to salty fans who lost? Refs miss calls, players make bonehead plays, coaches draw up plays that don't advantage them under the new rules. The end game is you won. Why enter into an argument that you already won. You won the game! In 3 weeks time, 8 weeks time all anyone will remember is round 6 Perth beat Cairns. What a waste of energy having a pissing contest about individual calls that may affect one point here and one point there. Most of the common fans do not know half the rules nor see half the misses. I just laugh at winning fans trying to justify how they won or why they won. You won! Thats your rebuttal. But continue, it is what a forum is for.
