Kings v United Dec 26
232 years ago some codger plonked a flag in the ground and then proceeded to lay the foundations of modern Australia, whipping some poor sods as they went. Today, NBL fans will watch two powerhouses whip each other on court as the battle for the finals.
Kings are top of the table and travelling pretty comfortably at the moment. 10 and 2 at home is an indication of how well protected their fortress is and Sydney took the chocolates in round 9 by 10. Yes, they have a few players out at the moment, but despite that they are still travelling well.
Brisbane have opened up a nice little gap over the pack and so Dis-United run the risk of getting back into the 4 harder than getting back with an ex with a loss today. United are in the zone, the Danger Zone. Will they put on the tactical turtle neck and lay down some suppressing fire? or will they be better off spending their time by having a swim at Bondi? With 1 win from their last 5 games and last two being losses, there's a lot of hard questions being asked in the Land of Soy Latte.
Hard to see this going any way but Sydeney. Sydeney by 11
