Game 3: Sydney vs Perth

Name me one way in which Perth's roster is superior to Sydney's?

Any area of the game, any position on the court, anything.

There appears to be one answer: Bryce Cotton. He's the best player in this series.

But if you look at the entire backcourt, Ware/Lisch/Didi/Bruce is superior to Cotton/Norton/Martin.

Lisch is currently reminding everybody how good he is.

Bogut is making Plumlee look 2nd rate.

At forward, White has struggled all season to recapture his 2019 GF form, shooting only 39% from the field, and I think his defense has been shown up at times over the last 2 games.

Nick Kay dominated against Cairns, but he's got his hands full against fellow 1st teamer Tate, and Cooks who is tiring out the Perth front line. He's the most active player on the glass in the league. Historically Perth terrorised opponents with their rebounding, but Cooks is a major reason why Sydney has 28 O boards and is plus 14 in rebounding over 2 games. And lastly at the forward spot, Sydney's immense depth is showcased by Moller's lack of playing time.

This series is a bit like a heavyweight boxing title fight. Sydney is a world champion heavyweight.

Perth has been the undefeated champ at light heavyweight for 5 years, so they stepped up to challenge the heavyweight champ. They're quickly finding out what it's like fighting someone 10kg heavier. They have a world class trainer (Gleeson) but after round 4 the heavyweight just found rhythm. They're being battered around and the trainer's struggling for answers.

Perth is lucky Bruce and Kickert missed wide open threes in the last minute of game 1. And Casper missed the game winner. A tough shot, but one Casper often makes when he's not horribly out of form.

Heading into the crucial middle rounds of this heavyweight title fight, what answers can the trainer conjure up?

This is a bit like Fury vs Wilder actually. Cotton is the equivalent of Wilder's eraser. Wilder was beaten in fight 1 until he found something special in round 12. It ended a draw. In fight 2, Fury was far better. Fury has a more well rounded skill set, a more complete boxer, a bigger man with longer reach. He doesn't have Wilder's knockout punch (Cotton), but he's got more tools in his toolbag. It showed in fight 2.

Terrico White needs to become the jab that sets up the eraser. And they need to nullify Bogut. Right now, he's destroying Plumlee. 37 points in 41 minutes by a pass- first big man. Plumlee is hanging off, letting Bogut start his move to the basket under no pressure. Bogut doesn't need to pass when he's scoring at will.

Gleeson has an uphill battle when his cattle are a step below the Money Kings. But, they destroyed a talented United team in games 3 and 4 last year. They're absolutely still in this series.

What adjustments can Gleeson make in less than 48 hours, heading into Game 3?

My tip- Sydney by 7.

Sydney are the most stacked team of all time. It was only a matter of time before they got on top, even more so when you remove Perth's home court advantage

Game 2 was pretty eerie to watch. The players said it didn't affect them.

Cotton is the only real standout in Perth ATM. Close him down and Perth are cooked.

We've shown no ability to slow down Sydney's scoring, so White + Steindl are both going to have to fire up to give us any chance IMO. Norton not getting himself into foul trouble would help too. Basically a lot has to go right for us.
I could easily see us losing this one by 15+

Even if we lose I hope it's a close and competitive game though, because by tomorrow it will probably be just about the only live sporting event left on the planet, so it has a potential viewing audience of about 8 billion. Promote the shit out of it, Larry!

Never right off Perth, Gleeson is no fool and Sydney's arrogance could quite easily come to play. While Tate is a great offensive player and Cooks gets rebounds they are both susceptible in defence. This is where Perth should be driving there attack through. Kay, Wagstaff and White should shoot lots of ten foot jumpers which can hurt Sydney. Cotton isn’t going to lay down and with a little bit help this could go down to the wire.

In saying all that Bogut wants this badly and he’s playing like it, what a player, Lisch has stepped up and Casper is playing great D and guiding the team around nicely, and yes if Walker is your eleventh man your are very strong.

Kings by two.

Kings are expected to win anyway Perth have no business being there. White has gone hero last year to zero.

Basically it's cotton and kay and that's it and they won't win unless he steps up.

Either way have no interest since yesterday's lock out hasn't got any feeling to it.

Sydney win the chip will be like a pre season cup. Perth Lost hca plain and simple and know ones if it would alter last night's result?

"Sydney to win the chip like a preseason cup" nice try mate! Spoken like a true loser. Teams have battled it out hammer and tong all season!

And to the guy who said Cooks is suspect defensively? That's like his whole game! It’s defence. Why mention Lucas Walker? Kings have Shaun Brice who no other team wanted, as their first guy off the bench and rotation player.

All the excuses coming out and it’s ugly. Just play ball.

Perth did look a bit flat, it would have been a strange feeling to play in that atmosphere.

For Sydney it was a bonus not to have to deal with Perth's home court support.

I think from here on out both teams will have adjusted to the circumstances though.

I'm certain Gleeson would’ve been happy to look down his bench and have a fit Walker there ready to plug a few holes. Even Gaze in commentary said Cook let players go straight past him and step up instead just letting Kay shoot over him.

Better at point guard, better at small forward, better at centre, bench is way better. Equal at power forward.
Perth have one advantage which is Cotton being a better scorer than Lisch although Lisch is a better defender so as a whole package the difference is not huge.

Although more versatile and more flexible worth a mention too

Sydney just have more options overall. As in, you could list more different combinations of players for Sydney that have potential to be successful

Which is partly just a function of their superior depth, but also resulting from having versatile players who cover different roles. E.g. Cooks I think is a 4 who could play 3, but with his rebounding ability could potentially play 5. Perth has no one like him.

Didi, Lisch, also versatile, more versatile than Perth's equivalents.

The only major structural weakness could be Bogut being the only real, genuine big

Sydney's series to lose. Confidence has to be up.
Cotton and Kay need help offensively.
White, Steindl, Martin, Wagstaff and Norton need to step up.
Use Cotton and White as screener variations, post up White (he has to take more shots) and use Bogut's man to screen for Norton.
Damian Martin's floater is usually reliable. He needs to slow up a tad and get control on the release. If Martin, Wagstaff and Norton can get 30 between them that would ease the pressure on Cotton and Kay.

Pretty clear to me if the Kings could have made their foul shots in game one, it would be 2 zip looming on the sweep. Kings $1.50 favs today and should win at home. No fans in Perth to influence the refs, YAY. For the first time ever the Wilcats fouled more than the Kings. No home cooking. I see no reason that should change. Despite Ware still stinking it up hopefully that will end today and the Kings break the Wildcats neck. Bring it on.

Stopping after game 3 would be the responsible thing to do, would not cost any money as there are no TV rights considerations and no public any way. And the NBL is in the lucky situation that it would still be a reasonably fair way to end the season!

I wonder if they could tell the teams it's a likely it ends tonight and any further games would be a bonus, just so they know it's for all the marbles and there's a little more understanding if they have to crown a champion after 3 games.

Crowning a champion after 3 games is better than suspending it at 2-1 and calling the season a draw. I don't think anyone would really disagree that whoever wins tonight would be unworthy of the chip. The two best teams made it through and have had a decent slog at each other over 3 games.

NBL has the chance to have a winner takes all game, it would be reasonably fair to both teams. Can have the trophy ceremony, etc.
Instead they’re taking the risk of having the shutdown forced on them next week.
I don’t think it’s good PR to hold games next weekend either.

I'm not certain who has the better roster, but Gleeson knows his cattle better and when to get them on and off.

1. Ware was IMHO MVP last season, but has not lived up to that this time round, and seems to have gone MIA in the finals. On his day, I'd give it to him, but he's not done enough this series.

2. Cotton is better than Lisch ever was, and Lisch s now old and injured.

3. White v Newly really depends. on the day. White hasn't really got going this series.

4. If you seriously think Tate is a match for Kay, then please stop what you're smoking before the damage becomes permanent. Kay is the best big in the league.

5. Bogut, as I said when healthy is probably still the best player in the comp, but when was the last time he was healthy? Expecting those legs of his to back up after 2 days and a long flight was always going to be a problem.

Bench?

Hell of a schedule if they do that and can't see Perth being happy even if it 'doesn’t matter’ where it is because arena is empty.

As a Cats fan I hope they call the series 2-1 Cats but I suspect the above is more likely. The way the commentators were talking they already know what they want to do but not ready to reveal it - maybe not everyone’s on board yet.

If miles can play with a bit more aggression like he did in game three regularly the cats should look to bring him back next season. Offensively he is limited but the guy can be a game changer on defence. Plus he is humongous and moves really well for his size.

Import
Cotton
White
Kay
Miles

Norton
Martin
Clint
Wagstaff
Import 4/5 type or a young Aussie big. They will need a big off the bench to spell miles. Major I guess would be a option to bring back and have the option of the third import as a insurance I case of an option.

Kay will be at one the big euro clubs and Perth won't be able to match the offer. Citizenships take normally between minimum two years, normally three to four. Perth will have to do a mini rebuild.
