Phoenix v Sixers Nov 18
So far this round not one team has reached the ton. Will that change tonight?
Phoenix had the skinniest of losses against their soy sipping cross town rivals earlier in the round and the Sixers out-rebounded the Cats and put up more shots, but the Cats were more accurate and took home the chocolates.
A Phoenix win will see them keep 3rd and push out a bit ahead of United. A Sixers win keeps Cairns at bay, whereas a loss would see Cairns leapfrog them on the table and round off a 5 loss streak. Certainly, it would be time to pull out the bean bags and go into the room of mirrors for a good hard look.
Phoenix hold all the aces going into this game, so the Sixers will need a Joker to stop this full house of failures. A royal flushing of SEM is needed if the Sixers are to win and Joey will need a poker face to keep his opponents guessing his plan. Will Joey fold, or can he hold 'em?
Games are won and lost off the bench IMO. The starting 5's get the results, but the second team needs to hold an end up. The Phoenix bench is just a little deeper and this will be the leading factor.
C'mon Sixers, but sadly Phoenix will make this trip a painful one...
