Brisbane vs Illawarra stealth thread

Tonight's second game is being played out in stealth mode. No, Wollongongites, not steal mode, stealth mode.

Several minutes in and no one has cared enough to post a game thread.

Bullet trains ride smooth and quiet on the rails, stealth mode will suit them.

Hodgson to embarrass Oglivy.

Patterson to be a class above whoever Illawarra line up on him.

Bairstow to Bairstow.

Bullet Train to win by 10 plus.

Illawarra winning bench scoring comfortably.

Does seem to be a trend for victory this season.

StTs people no idea, Naar 1 assist at the half, had at least three. I've noticed this in other games and players. Stats are big part basketball they should be accurate.

Naar with a clutch three to keep it within one basket.

The single most frustrating thing about the NBL - today no contact in the paint being whistled, 98% of games the exact opposite.

AJ Ogilvy, what the heck!

First he bitches and moans when Jett doesn't use his screen, even though Jett has two free throws- then Jett misses them! Why bitch and moan instead of encouraging a teammate!

Then he throws a shit inbound pass!

Get rid of him!

Good point about AJ f*cking with Jett's free throws and up to that point he was heating up. He has never had a heart muscle.

Absolutely pathetic final few minutes from the Bullets in regulation. Not even going to watch OT. Garbage.

Much of the talk this week has been that Lemanis is in negotiations for an extension. Unbelievable a guy so bad at recruiting a team over the last three years will probably get to keep his job.

Enjoy your playoffs spot Adelaide. And sadly it looks like we won't see you back in Brisbane next season Joey.

Good news for the Hawks now I guess is that Naar and Grida should be playing the minutes that they've shown they deserve for the past few months.

Yeah, okay, that's exactly what you thought. You only show up after a tight win. Lucky Jett missed those free throws.

Haha just taking the piss son.

But in fairness, the Hawks are rocking two league MVPs, a Boomer and former NBA player, AJ big boy Ogilvy who was in the Boomers conversation for so long, Todd 'Alpha' Blanchfield who is one of the best scorers in the comp when he wants to be, human bowling ball and clutch time specialist Jordair Jett, all-time Saint Marys assist leader (I think) Naar, future NBL superstar Grida, Tim 'transition triple' Coenraad, Kevo 'never miss while I'm watching' White.

They're stacked.

Forgot this game was on but looked up NBL app. In the "play-by-play", it kept showing "clock adjustment".

Sure enough, when I got home and looked up the game, Vain Mawberry was a ref.

Can the NBL fuck him right off next season?

Mayberry is a grandstanding flog, he is so bad.

BUT THE HAWKS NEED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for the wank they served up in this crucial game. Bullets were there to be taken but they didn't want it enough!! Give the keys to Naar and Grida they are the future and play with heart!!!

Hawks tried to the end, it's alright to have two former mvp but if there past it not much point. Get rid Conklin, Jackson, probably Anderson, find a good import five and point guard. Keep Ogilivy as ten minutes back up five and get an Australian four with bit athletic ability. Not certain who though. Keep the rest of the squad.

So the refs have video review. Surely the monitor they look at will be able to tell them exactly how much time had elapsed so they don't have to guess

Mayberry needs to be put on the clock. Ridiculous amount of time wasted tonight, and also WTF are the scorers bench doing not starting the clock when the crappy Hawks pass hit Conklin? Wake up! Although Video Vaughan loved them for it so he could soak up even more attention.

Illawara had to win it in regulation. Giving it to Blanchfield was a good move. Gliddon is a poor defender, but the fall away was a terrible shot. Blanchfield needed to go straight up put the foul in play and if anything toward the hoop a little. GET TO THE LINE.
