Brisbane v Perth Nov 1

Both teams have a hat-trick going into this game. Perth a hat trick of wins, Brisbane a hat trick of losses. Perth are always a little weaker on the road IMHO but deserve to be favourites going into this game. Brisbane have struggled with bad luck and injuries in previous seasons, but have no excuses not to be as hot and steamy as a Gold Coast meter maid.

Perth are always solid and with a guy like Cotton on the roster you just know anything can happen at any time. The difference between HMAS Perth and HMAS Brisbane is that Perth don't have any passengers on board.

Grab me so oil so I can give Damo's zimmer frame a quick lube up. So, I'm not too sure what you call four in a row, but old "splinters" is calling a Perth win (God forgive me for I have sinned). Perth by about 9

Maybe a season defining game for Brisbane tonight. I think they might take it behind big games from Sobey and Patterson. I think it might be time to swap Magnay and Hodgson's roles, too.

I won't tip against Perth, they are the bench mark. Brisbane don’t seem hungry enough or look fit enough, other than a few players. Magnay wasn’t good against the kings other than a highlight or two and Hodgson is so inconsistent and fouls to much. Sobey and Patterson will need to be great and Perth will cover them. Wildcats by eleven.

Didn't Brisbane light us up last year outside the arc? Predict it might happen again, Gliddon's 1 good game then shadowed back into his mediocrity.

No idea why the bookies have Perth line at -1.0, and Perth 11+ paying $4.70. Brissie has looked trash their last few games.

Am I missing something here? Those line and odds are very very juicy.

Obviously Brisbane are going to win.
They have the best Coach in Australia, who never makes mistakes and can do no wrong.
They have the best backcourt in Australia with Sobey and Gliddon. Their other players must also be awesome because Lemanis is great at picking players.

Perf are fucked because Martin is old and can only play defence and Norton is shit because he plays with Martin

Any time you play against a Boomers backcourt it is a tough ask. They even have a Boomers guard coming off the bench. I think Perth are in Cadeep trouble.

I haven't seen enough of Brisbane to say much definitively, but here goes anyway. :-)

If this were in Perth, I would have no trouble tipping the Cats, and by a significant margin. But they do struggle on the road (although their only loss this season has been at home.)

A Backcourt of Sobey, Spudee, and Gliddon? Lemanis sure can pick em.
At least with Brooks injured, Brisbane nolonger have the worst backcourt in the league, but that lineup still stinks
Unfortunately it will smell worse after they get ripped a new ahole.

Patterson at his best is the best SF in the league, so that will be an epic tussle with White. If Lamar's shots start dropping he could hoist the Bullets on his back and carry them to victory. Brisbane's superior depth at this spot could be the difference.

The frontcourt battle will again be interesting.
Kay is the best big in the league, bar none. Interesting to see if Lemanis persists with small ball at the 4, although his only alternative is Grandpa Vukona. I've been impressed with Hodgson and Magnay, and suspect they will dominate inside. But is that enough? Hunt and even Jook have been getting it done, so this will be a really good test for Perth.

It may sound a bit trite, but I think this game will be decided outside the arc. It's the icing on the cake for Cotton, when Damo hits them the Cats do well, Terrico has been nailing them, it's pretty Steindl's only weapon. Even Kay, Wagstaff, and Vague have been hitting open 3's. But it is so much harder on the road at a strange venue.
Conversely, if the Brisbane backcourt can start hitting 3's reliably they can quickly make up for their other deficiencies, and the same goes for Braun.

My head says Perth are the better team and should win.
My Gut says Brisbane will light it up from outside and that may be the difference.

"Can anyone inform me why they have away game's now and not in January? No excuses, they played Sunday in the gong, tonight in brisbane then Sunday in New Zealand."

I think this week is just luck of the draw. The away double may even have been a request. If we have to play in NZ in the 2nd game of a weekend, it's probably easier to do so from an East-Coast game than from Perth.
(Keep in mind that an away double means that somewhere else we get a home single)
Probably saves money too.

Then, next week is the final of the Fed Cup.

Vintage Hodgson. I also think the Bullets really need to play Te Rangi more. Too many static spot up shooters on this roster. Te Rangi is wildly inconsistent but at least he can create a little off the dribble, especially when guys close out.

Still can't figure out what the fuck I am watching
Jook in the first quarter was about as useful as we have seen him, grabbing the boards, getting fouled, even making some of the free-throws. Then gets benched and we never see him again. Did he cop an injury I missed?

With Hodgson and even Magnay in early foul trouble, it was Hunts time to shine, and he gets 16 minutes.

That puts a lot back on the shoulders of Kay, when he was having the worst game of his career.

Norton just no good on the round, and similar for White. When he's nailing those threes at home, they are daggers. But throwing up bricks on the road, they're just turnovers.

Good news is it keeps the league a bit more balanced, but Cats need to find another gear/player if they are going to keep Sydney honest this season.
