Snakes v Sixers Feb 2

You would think the sniff of 4th spot would make the Sixers more excited than a Queensland cotton farmer stealing water from the Darling, but let's just say that Cairns are no pushovers.

Cairns kicked off the first month of the year well and have the mantle of heart breaker creating upsets for the rest of the season, but now is the time for the Sixers to stand tall if they want finals action.

Joey has been painted by the NBL as a villain. He has the suit, he has the plan, he has the evil henchmen, he needs the white cat to stroke on the sidelines.

Sixers will be pushed today, but they know how to push back. Sixers by 4

Snakes looking like a QBL contender early.

That's the first time I've ever seen Majok Deng pass out of a shot.

Sixers with some good unselfish play in the 1st. Almost too unselfish on a few possessions.

The away cooking is ridiculous, Cairns can't get anything while Adelaide get soft calls.

Only reason I can think of for Joey Wright playing Conger 16 mins in first half and Sobey+Wiley together only 15 mins is he's betting over/unders on sportsbet for player performances.

Several times Adelaide have "saved" the ball from over the sideline, only to pass it back in straight to Cairns, resulting in fast break baskets.

If you can't get it to a teammate, just land out of bounds for a set play rather than chasing a fast break.

Wiley and Joey were having an issue with each other before the start of that last timeout. Hmmm...

Did someone replace the nets in the snake pit.

Not with Cairn's budget, they didn't.

Yes....the NBL must have paid some Equalisation payments for them to afford new nets.

Hopefully this game buries the 'Buzza Train'.

Yep 7-0 fouls completely stitched up again to start a game.
Joey/Vickerman/Gleeson rolled into one couldn't of won more games than Kelly. Taipans have been sold down the river by the refs this whole season.

Haha nice, Lovebroker. But mark my words, the BUZZA Train will roll into the semis at the expense of your lads

Yeah I was at the game, the refs had nothing to do with it. 6ers by far the better team for majority of the game. And by god, the fans at the Cairns game have NFI.

Thunder Jam if you watched the game rather than the live stats you'd of seen a bunch of contested jump shots from Cairns in the first 8 minutes. 2 drives to the rim both from Newbill. That's super cute you think the fouls should be evenly distributed just for showing up

I'm with you, Ano207.
Cairns just dreadful, Adelaide better, but they didn’t need to be by much.
Kelly is the budget Gaze.
Incredible blokes; shame about the court stuff.
