Breakers v Sixers Jan 31

The loser of this game will be on 14 losses tonight and 14L's is about the limit for finals. It's time to start planning for the next season, unless final spots are handed out like a government sports grant scheme.

Both teams are 11 and 13 with a H&A record of 7&5 and 4&8 each and that's about where the similarity ends.

The Breakers look like they are still hungry for a spot and out to do some damage. That's pretty much the Breakers we know. The Sixers have let the opportunity slip and would be better off jumping into the Rotorua mud because they will get a roasting in Auckland tonight.

RIP Sixers, Breakers win tonight and will officially kill off the season. The funeral will be in Heysen Chapel at 2 pm on Wednesday followed by a private cremation.

Breakers by 6

How much money are NBL players on? Tuning in to see my guy Eric Griffin and see he does not even start over there. Why lure him away from Europe on $585,000 a season and not even start him? I wish he was still here in Poland.

Love the New Zealand court side announcers passion for the game and love of chants. But if he could just sit a play or 2 out on the defensive end that would be great.

Coach is a lunatic anyway with no answers and no buy in from playing group. They don't need JVG. This group can self implode all by themselves. JVG will just ensure they pay top dollar for the privilege!

I'm sooo wild right now. At start of the season I thought my biggest issue would be the Adelaide entertainment centre, but I love that! I also thought we’d be ok as a team, but we are woeful. I’ve been a Joey supporter over the years, but can’t do it anymore. If he at least tried with the fans or said something sensible at a press conferences I might give him another go. But A that won’t happen. He’s making me loose my love for the team .... quickly.

Did DJ say his teammates were selfish in the post game interview?

The term "selfish" in the Naismith basketball dictionary is accompanied by an illustration of DJ shooting a low percentage stepback fade-away through his defender's hands. I won't even bother discussing his selfless efforts on the defensive end of the court. GRRRR

Breakers shot the lights out tonight and Abers turned back the clock.

Think very unfair on Joey. He does shot or play d. The players do. Moore certainly didnt perform but hindered by injury. A fully fit Moore team vastly better... maybe should have cut but joey backs his guys.
DJ stating the obvious. Players do become self aware under the pump...But if able to free themselves of that weight aka Perth all the woes are gone. Winning cures all.
Budget team probably exceeded realistic expectstions. Get breakers on a roll doesnt help.they were basket case half dozen games ago. Likewise Brissy- so not exactly panic stations. Let dust settle remove emotion... bit of tinkering all that's needs..

Over react lose players - need to show confidence. Aka cairns brisbane breakers

No matter the result against the Phoenix, it's been a. Disaster season. Have finished so poorly all the 'exceeded expectation’ talk is done, it’s been the opposite. That roster has no pride, Joey has no way to get them motivated and clicking. I guarantee the owner who appears to have little idea about basketball has a clue why it all went so poorly.
