Adelaide v Perth Jan 17
I don't have to tell anyone it's been hot in Adelaide this week. I've seen a few horned people running around with pitchforks, and I thank those Perth fans for coming over early.
Big news this week with Ramone Moore out injured and replaced by Shaun Bruce. Jesse "Stuart" Wagstaff has engineered a stella career and tonight suits up for game 300, a massive milestone in anyone's language, so we wish him a great game tonight (but not too good...) Anyone who can rock a man bun deserves good things to happen to him.
Massive game in the scheme of the season. Perth (12/8) are sitting in 3rd with Brisbane (11/9) putting the pressure on them. They have lost 3 out of their last 4 games, but usually do enough to get into finals. Adelaide (10/10) had an opportunity against Brisbane last round but had a Barry Crocker. Not a good night for Sobes, but everyone can have a bad game every so often. But a team is not just one man and that's when others lift.
A win to Perth tonight would see them firm up their finals credentials and put the pressure right on the Sixers. A Sixers win would see them keep on the shoulder of Brisbane.
Plenty of reasons for both teams to get a win tonight, but it might be the case of who plays the better second half. I'm thinking the Perth Devil-Cats might just burn the Sixers, and their season.
