Earlier this year
New Zealand v Perth Jan 6
Perth dodged a bullet in Cairns in their last game and New Zealand broke the Sixers heart two days ago.
Today they meet in Spark Arena where the Sparks might fly. An interesting stat on the NBL broadcast the other game comparing the home and away fouls per team. Perth the odd man out committing an extra 6 fouls per game on the road. Gee do they change their style that much on the road?
Cotton is back for this, Damien Martyn's 300th game. What a stellar career for the 6x NBL defensive player who has four NBL premiership rings.
New Zealand are still in the hunt and despite a fast turnaround for this game should provide a great game.
I think, however, unless the Breakers have brought their garlic and wooden stakes, Perth will knock them off today. I suppose to increase their chances that's why they are having a day game instead of a night game.
Perth to suck the blood out of the Breakers by 5
