Adelaide v Sydney Nov 2

Sydney go into this as hots on favourites. And why wouldn't they? Top of the table, undefeated, with a % of 115.5%, and with the best looking team they have had since Shane Heal starting putting highlights in his hair. To top it off, they have the Iceman as their coach. Will Weaver. Have you ever seen a coach this unflappable and cool?

Fetch me some aviators sunnies, grab me my leather jacket, cue the Top Gun music 'cos we're heading into a zone of danger, the Danger Zone - whoah hoooo! I thinks it's fair to say that the King's success this season has crystallised thanks to the Iceman, and it's time for this game to start, because I feel the need....the need for speed.

But that makes them the target, because every punter now wants to be the first team to know these guys off their golden perch. Can the Sixers do it today, or will they bravely leave the job of being the first to bet the Kings this season to the Hawks?

But, the Sixers are currently undefeated in their new home. The AEC has been a happy hunting ground for them.

Bring out the Scott Ninnis flattop hair cut and the genital hugging tight shorts, It's 1986 and just like the unbeatable Sixers were that year, This season is the Kings season.

The Kings should be unbeatable, but the Sixers will have a crack.

Lana. Lana. LANA Dangerzone

Ware I believe is still questionable (as of last night, at least), which would be a big blow to Sydney's chances.

Should be great game, this will test the kings, win this and it'll show us punters the kings aren’t violet crumbles. Adelaide at home will be fired up, can Johnson get Bogut could be the answer to the winner. Hope the refs don’t call rubbish and let them play. I’m calling extra time, kings by two.

I don't know I feel a bit confident tonight for no real reason. The Kings have to lose at some point and the Sixers two wins at home have been against a playoff team from last season in Brisbane and the now improved Cairns who in the games either side of the loss to the Sixers beat both of last year's Grand Finalists. I'm sure Randle will be hungry for revenge too.

Adelaide by 3

Is Tate a protected species or something? The guy throws his weight around and travels under the basket trying to shift Froling, no call against him. But as soon as anyone breathes on him it's a foul?

Not certain any luck in it, the game goes for four quarters and in this game OT, some calls against the kings were dodgy especially the offensive call on Casper, you make your own luck.

You do make your own luck and there were definitely some bad calls (the Ware offensive in particular), but DJ really Ogilvy'ed the game away late.

Still, one of the most impressive Kings victories in years I have to say, and Tate is an absolute beast. Happy to have been proven completely wrong about him.

after tonight there is no doubt in my mind refs (and the league in general) have it in for the 36ers or they give Sydney and Bogut preferential treatment. The sheer number of ridiculous decisions that almost all went against Adelaide really is a joke.

Everyone in the Stadium knew the unsportsmanlike was on Bogut even the man knew himself it was and was half way to the locker room, for them to call Tate for some phantom unsportsmanlike was negligent. Can anyone here actually explain what Tate did to draw this so called "unsportsmanlike" foul?

Then lets have a look at how Angry Angry man Tate is allowed to throw his weight and elbows into everything and never get called for a foul yet if anyone tries to use a bit of force against him they get pinged lol

And while we are at it how many times will Griffin get called for a foul when clean blocking someone. Funny how Bogut doesn't seem to draw the same blocks as fouls.

Lol you're kidding, calls helped Adelaide. Froling did the first foul , Tate fouled back then Bogut touched Kyei. Refs blow whistle go to replay and nearly get the right decision, Tate cops foul move on. Froling throws his arm around like a windmill and you blame Tate.

New stadium is good, I liked the atomasphere in there for this game.

My take:
Randle over dribbling in the 2nd quarter (all game, but particularly the 2nd) and taking early shot clock shots freezes out the rest of the team, and they lose momentum. He needs to keep getting other involved, or he should move to the 2 and let someone else run the 1......at least the ball would move.

Joey should have used DJ and Froling in OT. Thats what got us back in the game. Couldn't believe DJ hardly got a look in the first half. The way for the Sixers to beat Sydney is to force them to guard the perimeter. Froling and DJ for the 3. Everytime we have beaten them we get the ball to DJ for the 3 as Bogut can't get out there, but Sixers only started doing this from the 3rd.
Randle not last minutes clutch player. Check the last couple of games. The other week he nearly lost Sixers the game but was lucky DJ pulled something out to get the win. Runs shot clock down but can't get a good shot away and ends up "chucking" up a hope shot. You could see the difference between Randle and Ware. Ware will turn up when it matters and find the right play, where Randle makes hero decisions like Sobey. Must be something to do with the initials ink.
Not having legitimate 3pt shooters really hurts Sixers.

I think some people just can't be bothered or find it difficult to separate Bogut the player from Bogut the personality. Same with Cambage. He's still got it there is no doubt.
