Earlier this year
SF Series 1: Melbourne v Sydney Feb28
A last game of the season win by Melbourne put them in 2nd spot and hot favourites for this series. It was like a girlfriend pinching the chips off your schnitzel plate when "she's not that hungry".
Tonight, the team with the MVP heads down to face the team coached by the COTY. Will someone get it done in 2? or will we need some extra fries for that third game?
Melbourne have looked the goods when it been necessary this season. Running CG43 off the bench has been a masterstroke by the COTY who might even crack a smile if they get into the GF. While not scoring more points off the bench, it has been the impact that has mattered. He has been the sledgehammer togo with the Pledgehammer. We saw in the final game how Melbourne looked out of it all game. CG43 giving a sub-par return for most of the game brooding around the court like a 15 year old getting caught smoking on the oval, and then suddenly launching a Cotton-esque type attack to force that game into OT.
The week break has been great for NBL fans to catch up on Married at First sight, but now that Ines has left, it's time to tune into the real drama - NBL finals action.
For me, this series will go three games, but in game 1, itsa Mel - a - born all the way.
