Cats v Kings Dec 6

After the entree comes the main meal. It's 1 v 2 in the west so settle in and crack open an extra beer to watch this game, the MOTR. After tonight I guess we will know who are the contenders and who are the pretenders.

Sydney absolutely shellacked Perth at home in round 6 and whether Perth can return the favour we will know later on tonight.

Perth fans are pretty cocky and whether they work together to get the Cheaters chant up will be interesting to see. It's not the only thing they have problems getting up.

Sydney on the road are killing it this season with their only road loss coming in Melbourne. Perth Arena is a happy prowling ground for the Cats. When they win, they win by an average of 17 points at home, but when they lose, the crash like a 1980's WA Entrepreneur and lose by the same amount. It's hot or cold over there, no lukewarm water.

Plenty of great matchups tonight. Cotton v Ware one highlight. The battle of the boards the other. But tonight, The Bogieman and his boys will serve up a saucer of spoiled milk for the Cats.

Sydney by 7

If an 0-2 weekend is what it takes to get rid of Hunt then so be it.

Kings are in great form, Tate v Kay could be interesting. Lisch in and Moller out both excellent defensively should make little difference to kings, though Mollers length has been great in stopping players. Newley v White another good battle. I can't see Perth winning this though on paper the game should be reasonably close. Trev already complaining about kings not a good look for Perth’s morale, like they have given up already.

Sydney by 13 playing bench for half the last quarter.

I'm in two minds over tonight's game.

I need to get a Colonoscopy done, and I'm trying to figure out which one will hurt my arse the least.

I just hope they don't bring the Dunk Team out, its embarrassing when they outscore the Cats.

I think Perth respond tonight. Expecting big games for Cotton and White, and I think the Kings will need a bit of luck to escape with a win.

Concern I have with the cats, their defence can be woeful but their 0-18 run against Cairns shows that offensively they cannot hold ground with scoring if their defence is not working.

This is quite the Kings team.

Ware I think is the #1 player in the league, Bogut the #1 centre ....just too many guns all over the court.

Perth are going to have to take this down to the canvas and make it a draw it out fight.

I never miss Brandt more than when we face Bogut.

Difference is defence quite simple, that's why Sydney are on top. This what wildcats basketball is defense then the offence will come.

They're doing exactly what the Boomers were doing and trying to force mid range jumpers. And it worked in the first quarter, the only reason the Wildcats were in it was Sydney's inexplicable inability to get a defensive rebound.

Wildcats changed it up to get Steindl and Cotton off some down screens, and set the on-ball screens higher, so they were taking threes. And they went in at a ridiculous clip.

Putting aside that awesome 2nd quarter, there are a few interesting/concerning points to note:
Only 11 points in the 3rd quarter.
The stats flatter Hunt, who mostly played with Bogut off. He gets a couple of blocks but he is weak on D and very slow to get back.
Does Vague still have a role in this team?
