Brisbane vs Perth, 21 Dec 2018
What a tough game for Sixers fans. Half of me wants Brisbane to lose so the Sixers changes of #4 spot improve. The other half of me wants Perth to be shellacked with Gibbo dropping 20, Jace dropping 30 and Hodgson dunking over Wildcats at will (ala Cecil style, woop, woop)
The fact is, this will be another close game. Cotton will obviously put up another stirring performance that will demand the refs give him 3 MVP points. Lamar Patterson won't have any of that and will be making sure those 3 points are his. The matchups may look awkward at times, but actually work well for both teams depending on the play.
Perth have looked awkward of late, and Brisbane have looked the goods when they all turn up to play.
I'm actually thinking if Lemanis can stopping pacing and chatting to the refs (actual conversation the other game) "Hey, were you talking to me?" "No, I was talking to myself asking myself "what the hell was that call for?"" Brisbane might be able to squeeze the toothpaste tube to get the last drop out. Of course Perth will be there flicking their bums with a wet towel while they are doing that.
Oh, surely Perth can be that woeful? Cotton to do another "Cotton" and sink a 3 on the siren to take the game. Dagger to the heart for those Brisbane fans.
