Illawarra v Cairns Jan26

Oi Oi Oi !!! I hope everyone has had a great day so far.

Cairns couldn't quite get across the line a few days ago and Illawarra were competitive, except for the third quarter, against Melbourne.

But these teams are on a date that cannot be changed. Will Cairns bring the roses? or will Illawarra bring the chocolates? It's a shame they can't split the bill. I'm thinking we might see another OT game.

At least one team will get a win this round. I'm thinking the Hawks might just get their wings clipped.

How can that stadium not have air conditioning. It's 40 in Canberra today

Crap game, hopefully it's the heat factor. Air condition the statism or don’t play there.

Amateur camerawork. Totally missed Trimble's potential game winning three.

That director should be shot. Instead of seeing the result of Trimble's shot, we got a closeup of Jett’s head. Between the appalling commentary, the crap game and the dreadful production, this has not been a good look for the NBL today.

You would think that a stadium would be up to X standard, eg air conditioning...

I think its important that we see line Jett's lack of reaction to his team winning a close one.

How can we never have a clock or shot clock that is correct on tv for nbl games as well as the camera not even showing the last 3 point attempt.
Commentator had no idea either after the block not even calling that trimble put up a shot for the win. Blanchfield is very lucky. 3 seconds between game and shot why drive in with 10 seconds left. Brain dead take a shot with 3 seconds left ball misses bounces off the ring by the time opposition gather the ball they have 1.5 seconds to throw a full court shot for the win. That's why the nbl is so far behind the more professional leagues I also couldn't believe beveridge left ogilvy and jackson out there when they are such bad free throw shooters

Yes agree with a lot said above, I'm big nbl fan but today’s game was tragic, and on 9go. Not a good look.

Flicked over to GO and it was blurry as shit.

They alluded to it on the broadcast and it is obvious, but Conklin would give defences fits if he could consistently hit from 18ft. An undersized PF should automatically have that in his arsenal by this point in his career

So we let Trimble play one on one all season in many cases to the detriment of the team (note: the wins when Jawai got consistent touches).

But on the one possession where you should have the ball in your best players hands you freeze him out.

That one is on Kelly.

Either:
1) That was his exact play call to use his best player/league leading scorer/guy who got us that close, as a distraction.
2) His team does not have the discipline (20 plus games in) to get the ball to their main guy/the one the play should have been designed for.

Some good points from the commentary regarding the Taipans and their reliance on imports. How are they building anything when everything is based around imports who will likely use Cairns as a stepping stone.

Can anyone see Cairns winning more than 10 games in the next 2 years if they survive? With their budget I can't see them upgrading on Trimble or Newbill. Nate’s production will continue to drop with age. Replace Hall with a decent import 4 (will be cheap so won’t be Willey type unless we downgrade the other 2 import spots).

Loughton will retire come season end, would love to see him run the club tbh. Great club guy, well liked and has a savy media/corporate mind. Would not be surprised to see him in an NBL teams office within a few years hopefully Taipans.

The TV production for this one was absolutely amateurish. Pathetic.

As Heal pointed out Conklin is major player in the flopping stakes.

That thing needs to be given over to Tragardh before Loughton. Guy is doing big things in Central QLD and is young and hungry.

+1 Trigger if it gets him off commentary.
