Brisbane v Sydney Nov 8

A wounded Kings outfit head north of the border to square up. It's the cockroaches vs the banana benders.

Brisbane had a great round last weekend. Two from two with Hoops favourite Jason Cadee scoring like an Italian Stallion at a disco. 17 points and 16 points. Sydney not so good. Brave Adelaide pushed them the OT and should have won off off the final play, then the cocky soy latte sippers made sure they weren't undefeated anymore.

The battle for fourth spot is hotter than an old car in Innaminka in January. Melbourne are making their run with Adelaide and New Zealand right behind, with Cairns even fancying themselves. Only the Hawks are playing for draft picks.

Gee you would think Sydney won't like losing two in a row, and that could happen if the Iceman loses his cool once again. Some cool heads are needed from Sydney and all Brisbane need to do is poke the bear.

But Sydney are Sydney and there's plenty of season left for them to implode, shoot themselves in the foot and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory as another championship slips through their fingers, so tonight, knowing they need to get all their fans' hopes up prior to Christmas, should do so with a stirring win.

Sydney by 5

Who is hurt in Sydney other than Lisch? Who is covered by Deshon anyway.

Don't compare Lisch and Deshon Taylor, one was cut by Adelaide and on first game at Sydney looked shakey, the other is one best players in the league.

This probably will be another close game but I think Sydney will bounce back, let’s hope Weaver keeps his composer and the kings should win it down the stretch. Kings by 15.

He's got Boghoven composing, so should be okay.

Heal's keys to the game for Sydney were "limit Cadee"

You can leave Bogut open all night. Can't shoot. Can’t drive to hoop. Rarely rebounds. No threat. Bullets looking good so far. Kings taking average shots at best

Kings are struggling now after holding an unbeaten record since Iceman lost his cool in NZ.

I'm guessing Bogut is on a minutes restriction? Bullets killing us inside when he's off, and shooting the shit out of it to boot.

I'll hold that against you if it doesn't happen, anonymous poster.

Kevin Martin looks like he could suit up and drop 30 in this 2nd half.

Nah, if the slide continues Will Wheaton will just intimidate everybody with another potential hulk smash to get all of the calls.

Violets have crumbled early this season.
Like I said earlier, if you have a team that clearly can't play D, and the stats suggest otherwise, then its clear they've had rubbish opponents.
Bogut being exposed as the hasbeen we all suspected. Maybe thats what passes for defence in the NBA and hell get another call back.

Hodgson back to the bench, 4 fouls in 14 minutes.

When will he learn / when will someone take responsibility to teach him to cut this shit out?

How bad has Brisbane been in the third quarter. I can't remember the last time I’ve seen shooting so poor.

Ben Hodgson did the same playing for Adelaide. It's on the Bullets for recruiting him.

The Rubber Bullets - sounds legit out of the barrel, but fail to penetrate on impact.

Still a Q to go, but that was solid from Sydney, really ramped up the D.

Bonehead Hodgson strikes again. Fouls out yet again with 6 minutes left in the game. Well done lad.

Newley and Moller defensively magnificent, got kings back in and off course Bogut. I like to see a 1 percenters stat, Moller would be through roof.

George you went off way too early champ haha

Bogut was terrible other than leading his team in Rebounds, Blocks, Steals, +- (+14)

Another day another road win for the MVP!

I like Moller a lot but his parents post on here way too much! Oh and FYI you can't stat 1 percenters, they're not a real thing. They are a made up thing to give some love to players when make a lot less money cause they can't score. "You do the 1 percenters which is why you're so crucial to us! Sorry we can't pay you more, it's all spent on the guys who do the 20 percenters!"

Sydney's lost one game and that was with Didi sitting the 2nd half and a fresh-off-the-plane Taylor

Newley keeps playing like that and it'll get very difficult for the rest of the league

I have statted for a long time stats that are unstatable as some seems to think untrue.
How many deflections, what time was left on the shot clock when shot taken, bad shots, dives on the ball and the list goes on.
1%'ers are real and statable.
