SE Melbourne v Melbourne Nov 2
The rematch is here. SEM won their first game against their cross-town rivals and since that time it's been a tale of two cities. Phoenix have ridden a wave to surf into second spot on the table and United have sunk to second bottom on the table. If it wasn't for the Hawks, United would probably be sweeping up the dog turds in NBL park.
But things have changed? Can United get this one? Or are they like a 1970's porn star, all washed up.
United beat the Breakers but fell to the Taipans last round. Talent wise they have the edge over SEM, but Creek and Roberson are the ones on fire and the supporting cast of the Phoenix ensemble are playing like the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra whereas United are like a grunge band playing in some seedy Carlton hotel with junkies shooting up in the vomit filled toilets.
Phoenix should get this one.
