Taipans v Cats Nov 23
They're done it already this season - beaten the Cats. Will they do it again on their home court? The collective support of 7 other teams will be behind the Orange Army tonight as they seek to serve it up to the boys from Perth they only way they know how, hot and steamy. Oops, I better watch my words because we all know how racist we are on Hoops....
And talking of giving people curry on this site, the guy who cops the most on Hoops, Brendan Teys, rose to the occasion last night with a career high 22 points in an effort that has NBA scouts salivating. Does that mean we need to give a bit of extra ribbing to the Cairns boys to inspire them?
Perth are slick and well oiled, which is useful in a lot of scenarios, excluding if you're on Jeffery Epstein's private yacht with a Prince. There's not too many chinks in the armour that can get exploited, except they don't travel as well as other teams IMO.
Perth were caught napping in the second half of the last game they played and Cairns came home like a steam tain, but not tonight. Perth to apply the right amount of pressure at the right time to control the game in the fourth and run out winners by about 8.
