R1: Bullets v Hawks Jan 16
Hodgson, Froling, Drmic, Sobey, Cadee. Sounds like it could have been the starting line up for the Sixers, but this is Brisbun 2021. Just like Canadians get confused for Americans, this Bris-bane team could get confused for a Sixers team by anyone who has been living in a cave during the Covid lockdown, eh. So grab some poutine and lets get out onto the ice.
Original gansters since 1979, the Hawks have new ownership and a whole new attitude this season. Definitely one of the teams with the lowest games played, these Steeltown ironmen have a combined total of 420 NBL games between them. Adelaide Lite has over double that at 843 games. Being one of the less experienced teams in the league could be a good thing for the Hawks as the scouting report might be incomplete, and I'm sure Mrs Foling won’t give out any backyard secrets on "Prince" Harry, or “Slamin’” Sam.
Brisbun have a good core group who have been together for a few seasons and sometimes giving a bloke a towel flick in the showers is the banter a team needs to build up teamwork. You would think Lemanis would have a bit of pressure on him to deliver this season and I think the Brisbun fans calls for poutine and Puppers Premium Lager might ring true tonight.
Bullets by 10, eh but
