Cats v Phoenix Jan 29
NBL's Festival of Basketball continues in the glorious Westralia where the SE Melbourne Creeksters take on the Perth Cottontails.
Late starters to the season, Perth will be out to make it two from two to put pressure on The Hawks. They disassembled Phoenix last game like a child pulling the wings off a fly, forcing 20 TO's while only having 9 themselves. They won most of the stats including where it mattered on the big cube. Plenty of white line fever from the Cats. Some people say there was a bit of home baking, but hey it's a pretty dark carpark after the game.
Phoenix would be looking for an improvement to the score and hopefully have spent the last 5 days having a shoot around and working on the skills, instead of playing Quokka soccer, or high tea with Lord Mayor Basil Zempilas. Still, could be worse they could have gone swimming in the Swan River with the bull sharks, now they face the sharks at the RAC Arena - all 7,000 of them. Now who would be worse, Cats fans? or Collingwood fans?, or maybe even Collingwood Cats fans?
But to watch Perth is to watch the Bryce Cotton show, the man with the ball on a string. SEM will bring a pair of scissors tonight, but cutting the string might be harder than finding a hipster in Dandenong.
