Melbourne v Brisbane Nov 24
Brisbane squeezed past Adelaide on Friday night, but the Bullet train hits a wall today. United are on the rise. Third on the ladder and with 5 straight wins they look set to make it 6/6 today. It must be all those soy lattes.
To average 20 ppg is pretty good, but United have got three guys doing it and a couple more capable of doing it. United have scored over 100 points 3/5 times at home and 2/3 away. Let's face it, if you're brave enough to wear a man bun like a boss, you can achieve anything.
Casey Prather is out injured, but he's not essential to a win today. The Pledgehammer is still to come back too.
Brisbane will need to play out of their skins defensively if they wish to have any chance today. So far this season they have only had 2 road wins, both against poor old Illawarra. Their game on Friday was the first time they lifted their bat with a century. They will need to make every possession a scoring possession, but like a night out at the club, sadly most attempts result in an air ball, a fumble, or a reject.
I think it's pretty safe to say that the Bundy Boys from Brissy will be at the mercy of the Soy Boys from South Yarra. The only thing at play will be the margin...I think the score will be something like 104 to 88.
