Sixers v United Jan 11
Phew..... so after the Kings/Taipans, NBL fans will have just enough time to have a comfort stop before they get a chance to see Brendan Teys rip Melo Trimble to shreds.
Adelaide's season is far from over, but each game from here on in should be seen as a must win if they have dreams of cutting down the nets in Perth in the last game of the season. Melbourne's season is brighter than the Sixers, but they can't rely on golden whistles in Melbourne, they need to rely on the wrist action of CG43, and he has the best wrist action in the NBL. He is the one who can turn a game for United with freakish shots from outside the arc when the question is asked of him.
Has Adelaide had the pleasure of hosting United this season? I don't think so. Adelaide has been shellacked in the City Of Soy this season getting smacked by an average of 20 ppg (110 to 90) in two games with United all over the Sixers like the British press over MEGXIT.
My score predictor is saying United by 97 to 96. Adelaide average 100 at home, but United are no pushovers on the road and so it's hard to see that 20 points getting much skinnier, especially if Joey's rotations are as off as milk left out of the fridge.
United by 1. Come Sixers fans, we can push the team for a couple more points can't we?
