Brisbane v Adelaide Nov 22

Round 8 kicks off with the Adelaide 36ers going up to Brisbane to play the Adelaide 18ers. Half their starting 5 are former Sixers, so this is just like a training drill. Why wouldn't you want to go to Brisbane and play under the National Coach? Although, Mr Vukona, Adelaide could always do with another guy over 30.

Both teams are 4 and 5 and are still in the hunt for a top 4 spot. You would think that we know who the top 3 will be (just need to wok out the order) and then 4th spot will be taken by one of 3 to 4 teams. Ah.... round 1 of finals. The privilege of finishing fourth only to be embarrassed in finals by the number 1 team.

Brisbane are coming off of two losses. Taipans bit them hard, and before that the Kings showed them the standard they need to achieve to stay in finals. Adelaide looked like it was going to be 5 losses in a row, then Joey realised he couldn't count to 5 so the team obliged with a win.

Adelaide looked a lot more fluid and synchronised last game. Better rotations, better matchups and better shooting. We need to see plenty more of that from them if they want to assert dominance over the Brisbane 18ers. Surprisingly the Bullets have been routinely out boarded in most games. But, the Bullets Bench has been consistent this season and is one of the stronger ones with former possible future son-in-law Cadee averaging 10 off the bench offering that scoring punch that is required.

These are the kind of pressure cooker games that at the end of the season a coach will say, during his contract renegotiation, "if only we had of won that game" as they miss out on finals by %, or a game. In this case, coaches need to a little smart because they need to take risks to get the win, but no dumb risks like spinning the barrel of a six-shooter. But you know what they say about Russian Roulette, 5 out of 6 people think it's a great game.

I think the Sixers will fancy themselves in this one, and I think if they keep their heads screwed on like they did against SEM, then Joey can hold up two fingers to the haters to say he has got back to back wins.

Even though it's in Brisbane after the Sixers performance against a superior SEM team I'm feeling quite confident plus we owe these guys for snatching the final playoff spot from us last season. Just stand three feet off of Sobey and he'll do the rest.

Sixers by 8

Haha agreed about Sobey. I think the Bullets will win, I have zero faith in the 36ers and how they're playing. No consistency and who knows how the Bullets will 'play for' Lemanis after this weeks news.

Bullets by 6, Patterson to break it open.

I'm hoping for a Bullets W but can't see it. Adelaide definitely improved last week and Brisbane didn't. 2-way inconsistency may gift the game to the home side.

Sixers in a canter. JR DJ AD and all playing very well or at least consistently well. Lesser roles players are now contributing.... Brisbane just so inconsistent and sobey Hodgkin and cadee are that to a tee.no way Sixers let cadee or indeed sorbet have a night out and the big fella
Well by half time he have 4 fouls and becomes non issue. Said before having cadee against is worth extra player for you. His brain fades are always useful. Expect Eric to continue his upward trend. Defensive not an issue because brisbane are leaky pipes anyway.

Bullets in a canter. Adelaide will not win 2 in a row as Jerome 'chucker' Randle will not have a shooting night like last week. You also can't win games with Brendan Teys as a starter.

Was leaning 36ers all week, but maybe, just maybe these guys come good for Lemanis after being relieved of national duties, not to mention Gliddon, Sobey and Cadees's Boomer careers are prob over too. If they lose, Brisbane are beyond broken.

Getting a fresh Brisbane is a lot different to playing SEM who played 48hrs earlier. Plus SEM aren't that good! Moore will no doubt have recovered from his (cough...cough) 'calf tightness'. You can get away with that crap once but reality is the Sixers need him and need him playing well. SEM couldn't hit the side of a barn against the Sixers zone but Brisbane will be a different proposition. Expect Gliddon and Cadee to go off in this one. Randle plays well Sixers have a chance, has a job done on him and a quiet one and Brisbane win.

If Cadee goes off. Hit and miss. That's the issue. Randle will get off for sure. Always does. Brissy such a lukewarm team it's all.if if if with them that's if they get it rite. Or if they get it wrong against wright it be like a cadee prayer. Hoping but with no hope.

I would argue that we only had them.missing down the stretch due to the d being better as DJ sat his sulky arse down.

Ideally, games in Brisbane should start no earlier than 7:30pm local time on Friday nights. The horrendous traffic woes ensure the Bullets will never be given best shot to draw optimum crowds when games tip at 6:40. Surely it makes little difference if VIC/NSW consumers are watching the game start at 8:30.
