Perth v Adelaide Feb 15
This round just keeps on getting better. Pull up a chair, knock the top off a coldie and sit back to feast on another fine game. If anyone has fingernails at the end of this round they are obviously not NBL fans.
Perth are top of the table with a game in hand at the moment. Adelaide fans are booking annual leave....at the moment.
Last night's game made things interesting, very interesting. Perth can now drop a game either against Adelaide, or against Melbourne and still secure top spot, but hey, if you Big Larry writing the script, why not leave it to the final game. What could be better than "fine" Cotton dropping a 3 over Ware as the siren goes to finish ahead by one and regain top spot. BOOM! Instant highlight reel at MVP night.
Perth can do no wrong at the moment. They just can't seem to lose. They are like that mate we all have who is as ugly AF, but who walks into a night club and has the babes dripping of him. They're the guy who finds a wallet in the street with $100, but returns it and the owner gives them $1,000 reward. The guy who hooks up with some Swedish backpacker only to find out her dad owns Sweden's largest boutique brewery and needs a new GM.
Adelaide are strugglers. They had the opportunity to lock in fourth spot last round, but instead of taking Brisbane out with a sucker punch, they ended up choking on a chicken bone..... when they were dining on steak!
Some good news out of the Adelaide camp should inspire them "Wiley Coyote" re-signed for next season and Sobes announced on IG his partner is expecting. The Lightning GF game should be compulsory viewing for Sixers to inspire them.
There is a saying in the NBL that you need to go through Perth to get an NBL Flag. Well Sixers, you need to go through Perth to get fourth spot. Had badly do you want it? Or do you want to serve it up to the Bullets on a silver platter with a cheeky Chardonnay?
A Perth loss tonight won't hurt Perth as badly as an Adelaide loss. Perth are in finals and probably need a loss to get a bad game out of their system. In finals, a bad game will hurt them.
An Adelaide loss will hurt more than having Bill Shorten as your new Stepdad. They can still make finals but need those Kiwi Cousins to knock off the banana benders.
Well Sixers, if Lightning can show you how to do it, you can do it.
Adelaide won the very first game at Perth Arena and Perth a due a shocker. Chewy on Cotton's boot.
Sixers in like Flynn, Sobes to have a blinder and call his son Bryce..... Sixers by 3
