Adelaide's playoff hopes?
At this stage after the demoralising final quarter capitulation to the Bullets at home yesterday it would be fair to say the 36ers have no business making the playoffs this season.
But currently just half a game and percentage out of 4th spot they're still a realistic possibility especially if Perth continue spiralling down the ladder.
I said earlier in the season the team needed to make hay during the current 'softer' 11 game stretch of the schedule which ended yesterday (we went a disappointing 7-4) as the final 8 game stretch of our schedule is brutal.
@ New Zealand
You wouldn't wish that kind of finish to a season on an enemy but the 36ers fate is still in their own hands especially with three games to go against Perth the two teams likely battling it out for that final playoff spot.
NZ shouldn't be counted out just yet either they're now gone above Illawarra on the ladder and at 8-10 could challenge the 36ers at 10-10.
