Taipans v Sixers Dec 22

Every team is allowed one bad game per season, but it seems the Sixers thought they could get away with a game so bad, even Michael Jackson giggled at their badness. That's not taking anything away from the Hawks who played well.

Another "Double death points game" for both teams who are still hunting 4th. An Adelaide loss sees them both go to 8/9 with Cairns saying "thank you" as they snatch 4th spot back. An Adelaide win sees them go 9/8 and one game away from the soy sipping United. Of course in all of this, the Green Machine play Sydney tomorrow and a win there, combined with a Cairns win sees them slip into 4th. Lots at play today for both teams, and more.

Adelaide's 84 at home was the lowest score all season and the Hawks exposed warts the Sixers never knew they had. Despite a record crowd and everything going for them, they almost seemed like they dared to lose the game in some alternative universe thing. I had to double check to make sure Marty wasn't holding the clipboard on the sidelines. I was even looking for Mr Meeseeks with a plan to lose the game.

Cairns have lost their last two games, but have been playing some quality basketball, especially at home where they are 5 and 3. Considered as the budget team of the competition, they remind us why we love this sport. When they keep their game plan simple, they win. They only lose games when they over complicate it with extra, extra, extra passes, or they try to do fancy tricks that even Michael Jordan would say "I ain't doing that"

It's Adelaide's first trip to FNQ and they might be watching their P's and Q's if they play like they did on Friday night. Cairns have the fresher legs and at home are a team that can beat anyone. Give those boys in orange some little robber's masks, they're stealing 4th spot from the Sixers.

Cairns by 9

Cairns by 12+. Adelaide have had some honourable losses, but they've had some shockers too. Cairns are locked in and will dominate the boards. That hawks loss for Adelaide, is one of the worst and will be costly come seasons end.

Has anyone nominated Jack Toft for an OA yet?
He's on fire this year.

Yes an OA should be awarded to Jack Toft, he's certainly more worthy than any politician that gets one.

This is a tricky game to pick, both sides have poor benches and unless Johnson steps up big time Cairns has probably got better starters. Adelaide defensively also liable to let in easy points. Cairns in a close one by 3.

Adelaide bench worse than Cairns, who would've thought, especially with future nba stars Froling and McVeigh playing for them. Only light I can see for Adelaide is Kyei.
Kelly proving he can coach at this level and recruit with his picking of imports, I hope they can keep them.

Teys as capt needs to do more. Thought been consistent this season but tonight a no show. Not alone. Mentally not there. Cairns 1st quarter but struggled rest of game. Sixers just couldn't piece together 2 or 3 plays. So close.

Who could blame Cam Oliver? No one would not throw a ball at the back of Teys head given the opportunity! That is the Hungry Jacks play of the round right there.

DJ's been disappointing this season. Three consecutive turnovers on three straight possessions last night killed any chance we might have had. But it's more than that I'm just sick of him disappearing completely if he feels like he's not getting the ball enough. He rebounds well enough when he's seeing the ball but if not he gives up completely won't crash the boards even less effort on defence.

I think it's getting close to the point where we can't really afford to start DJ anymore. Too many cracks have to get papered over too many concessions have to happen elsewhere. We need a defensive minded good rebounding PF to pair alongside DJ to cover all his flaws which isn't Griffin and we're trying to do with Kyei. We need a back up centre that does some of those things too not a Froling who's even softer than DJ is.

Kyei should get a contract for next year too. Doing much better than expected and playing with energy and a team first mentality. Maybe not a world beater, but the team needs good role players too.

McVeigh can't defend a statue, Sixers got enough those type players, but agree there needs to be a broom put through there.
