Cairns v Melbourne Jan 25
Well..... three undefeated teams so far this season and of course if you are going to brag about going through undefeated, you better put the stones on the line. Melbourne with a lot of pressure on them today to knock off the lesser favoured Cairns. Cairns may be able to blow them away.
United were well held in the first half against the Sixers, but essentially ran away from a sluggish Sixers to outscore them 52 to 26 in a game of two halves. No United player was head and shoulders over the others, but a solid team effort all round. Cairns have not been playing bad basketball, but will definitely have their hands full tonight containing these bad boys. You would think they would have developed some mad skills wrestling crocs, snakes and feral cane toads so a bunch of man bun wearing soy latte sippers should be within reach.
The secret of course is containing the CG43 machine. The United forwards may find themselves challenged around the key, but if United can't keep up with the Tropical Tango style of the Snakes, then the scoreboard will be the home team's friend. United will be beaten in the transition, but around the key always seem to slow the game down enough to put up good shots.
