New Zealand v Brisbane Jan27

Fire up your BBQ, what a treat we are in for. Brisbane seem to win when required and the Breakers do too. Today the Bullets head to Auckland (what, no more tour of NZ?) to keep their charge on the top 4.

This is definitely going to be tighter than a fat kid in a rashie. If we have one OT, we might as well have 2.

I'm leaning toward the Breakers to win by a whisker

Do your feet have to be all the way inside the charge circle? If yes, that Moore foul was far worse than the Bufford one.

On the line is inside the no charge zone. But also remember that being inside the no charge zone is not an automatic blocking foul like the NBA.

Weeks and Webster should swap contracts.

Bullets will steal this after getting it back to 5 at the half.

Wow I don't think Breakers could play better this first half. Brisbane hanging around waiting for game to change. Tai Wesley's 4th could be telling Q4. Worm starting to turn. Great test for Breaker resolve.

I am surprised what little impact Davis is for Brisbane. Does he have any game?

Not if he was playing in Kosovo beforehand.

Weeks was never in front of Patterson, you are supposed to be in a stationary position, the offensive player just can't vanish in to thin air, it should just be play on, no call. As above the charge, block calls are rubbish all season and are deciding games.

A blowout in the end, but anyone's game up to about 3 minutes to go. Shawn Long in beast mode - 23 points, but Finn Delany a solid 17 points was the man who made a difference.

Anon #047 you have not had to be stationary for charge for over a decade. You might want to brush up on your rule knowledge.

Don't know why the Bullets wasted an import signing on Davis when he doesn't do jack.

With Perth winning 2 games, it makes this game more instructive for finals spots.

Vukona didn't look good after his injury, being one of the hardest men in the comp will be a big loss if out for any length time especially with Bairstow looking not as good against the more mobile 4-5 in the league.

Here you go Anon. FIBA rules state:

"When judging a charge/block situation involving a player with the ball, an official shall use the following principles:

• The defensive player must establish an initial legal guarding position by facing the player with the ball and having both feet on the floor.

• The defensive player may remain stationary, jump vertically, move laterally or backwards in order to maintain the initial legal guarding position.

• When moving to maintain the initial legal guarding position, one foot or both feet may be off the floor for an instant, as long as the movement is lateral or backwards, but not towards the player with the ball.

• Contact must occur on the torso, in which case the defensive player would be considered as having been at the place of contact first.

• Having established a legal guarding position, the defensive player may turn within his cylinder to avoid injury.

In any of the above situations, the contact shall be considered as having been caused by the player with the ball."

The case of the moving defender is dealt with in the second principle above.
