United v Snakes Dec 26
I hope everyone celebrated Scott Ninnis' birthday yesterday, but the NBL action returns today.
Cairns hope to hold onto 4th spot with a stirring win in the open air game against United. United have almost done enough to lock in a top 4 spot, but anything can happen once Santa has been and he has looked at the naughty list. United have played some patchy basketball this season but seem to snare the games they need to. Cairns have been punching above their weight and are not intimidated by the smell of soy in the evening.
Some classic matchups today, Trimble v Machado & Long v Oliver are the headline acts, but I think the X factors will make the game. CG43 for United and Deng for Cairns.
