Earlier this year
Melbourne v Perth Feb 17
Well, the final minor round game of the season and the table is a fluid as a millennial's sexuality. Equation is simple. A Perth win sees them keep top spot and United stay third, a Melbourne win (unless by a mercurial 33 odd points) sees them host Sydney in the semi-finals.
Lots at stake for United, not so much for Perth. Perth will most likely play Brisbane in their semi final series :( Looks like Adelaide fans might be temporary Red Army members this finals series - where do I join?
For those who believe the LK Conspiracy, don your tin foil hat. Would LK want both "his teams" to face each other in the semi finals, or would he want an each way bet with one team per semi final series?
The major arm wrestle to watch this game will be Ware v Cotton. Both are hot favourites for MVP so this will be their game to shine.
Last time they met, Perth at home won by 5. Boone dominated the boards and Cotton put on a show. I'm thinking Boone might still dominate the boards and Cotton might light it up again. CG43 was in the starting 5 then, but since coming off the bench United play better.
