Kings v Bullets Oct 26

The Kings are undefeated in top spot and the Lions are waiting for the wildebeest to arrive on their savannah.

You wanna win an NBL title in 2019/20, forget about the pussycats, next level up you gotta face the Bogieman and his demons in Sydney. This is the stuff of nightmares.

Brisbane Bullets (aka Adelaide Lite) have that challenge today and the contrast between coaches could not be more stark. The tense coach pacing up and down the sidelines compared to the ice cool, imperturbable Field Marshall positioning his troops to enact his masterplan.

The Bullets wins this season have been over the Hawks and Cairns with their losses being to the Phoenix and the Sixers. They might take the cue shot and break the rack, but the Bogieman will just pull out his cue stick and put the balls in the slot.

Sydney will continue the trend this round of home teams getting over 100 points and winning.

Kings should win this easily. Brisbane need lamar fatterson to have a monster game if they are any chance.

Bullets have lost seven straight to Sydney, they need to make a stand today for their own sake, otherwise mentally they're going to suspect they're competing for 4th spot again but nothing more.

Great preview.

Kings should win this with out really having to get to top gear. This is the time you better get on the bullets though as one thing kings history tells us is when they are specials the play like crap.

Hey, Cosby! The problem isn't getting Patterson to have a monster game. He's doing that week-in, week-out. I want his team-mates to take some responsibility too, especially in the dying stages of close games.

It seems that as Patterson is "our" only gun, we ALWAYS go to him down the stretch. And, with the attention he is getting from defence, there should be lots of good scoring options for others.

Been some talk of his import support and have to agree that they seem too one-dimensional and no additional benefit to what Patterson and the Aussies bring. Add to that that they (Singlar & Braun) actually diminish the benefit of having TeRangi.

Not meant as a direct criticism of Singlar & Braun, just the make up of the team. The criticism is for putting it on Patterson in the first place!

By-the-way, I do understand that there was initial confusion with Patterson's availability so Singlar and Braun were recruited with justifiable expectations, and as stated above, not bad choices, in themselves. Just hope that we can balance the team better either with the current roster or replacements???!

Patterson needs some help so time for Jason 'curry' cadee to be put in the starting lineup.

I would say it's about all of them playing some D. They're scoring more than enough to win.

Sydney will win.
Don't rate Brisbane at all.

Both teams looking alright after one quarter, Ware warming up real quick though so hopefully Sydney marches onto another win.

Kings should roll them easy in the second half, Brisbane never got off the plane by the looks of it

They'll probably end up in 4th and lose in the semis again.

Caddee and Gliddon are shadows of their best.

I don't know what's wrong with this bullets side. On paper they should be at least half decent, but they're straight up trash. Going to be contending for bottom 2 alongside cairns and hawks.

I'm stunned Brisbane was considered a finals lock by a lot of commentators. They suck

I haven't seen a replay, but that 2nd unsportsmanlike on Bogut looked like one of the worst of the season, which is really saying something.

Bullets should combine Singler and Braun's contracts into one import 4 who can score from inside, and hope Gliddon can consistently knock down open looks for more than a handful of games each season.

There have been at least 2 or 3 shocking unsportsmanlike calls already this year, take your pick.

Gliddon is a shadow off the player he was. Cadee is still the same, bland. TeRangi and Vukona didn't play hardly, injuries?. Hodgson is not that clever and two imports are no better than locals. Take Paterson and Sobey out and they got nothing.

The Bullets are literally a spiderman meme. So many double ups of players it's not funny. Not enough 'key’ players to depend on. Lamar is one. *Maybe* Sobey another. That’s it.

Another season of Lemonass recruiting stench.

Cadee was hilariously bad in that game.
