Adelaide v Canberra Feb 13 GF Game 2
Canberra got the better of a fast starting Adelaide in game 1, but hey, this is the best of 3 series and all fairy tales have an obstacle to overcome. A packed stadium in Canberra, but something tells me Adelaide Arena might be a bit chock a block too.
Nurse lead all scorers and KG23 was superb for Canberra scoring 0.76 points per minute of play, 12 boards and not giving away a foul. I guess those long Alaskan winters give you plenty of time to practice your skills in the gym and you can always practice your boxing out skills with the bears outside. All the Canberra starters got into double figures with the bench basically getting splinters all night, except for Harry's big sister.
Canberra ran their bench pretty lean with 92% of court time split between 6 players.
Adelaide spread their court time more evenly, but shooting % got them in the end, ending up 23 from 70 vs 35 from 73.
There's probably not too much that Fairy Godfather Lucas would want to change going into this match except for practicing those shots, and boxing out.
The scene is set for Chris Lucas to sprinkle some pixie dust, wave his magic wand and send this series into a third and deciding game.
