Brisbane v Melbourne Dec 8
4th place Brisbane host the powerhouse team from "Australia's most liveable city" Last time they met Melbourne took home the choccies.
Brisbane need to get these games and stuff the trophy on the wall if they are serious about a top 4 spot. It's OK to get a W against the weaker teams, but if they want to be a threat come finals, a home win against the organic soy latte sipping United boys (did I just assume their gender?) is a must. After all they are out of their safe space.
Can they do it? They need a plan to counter the usual suspects. Boone in the key, Ware driving in the key, Goldring outside the arc, plus all the others. On paper, it will be a hard task, but champion teams always beat a team of champions.
Brisbane need to step out of their lukewarm bath of performance have been sleeping in for the last 2 seasons. Wins in games like these make a team. Can they do it?
