Brisbane v Melbourne Feb 5
Brisbun sit mid ladder with a 50/50 win ratio and have yet bend their bananas south of the Coolangatta River this season. They're looking to make it 3 wins in a row at home as they face the team hoping to slide through the season undefeated, Mighty Mal-Borne as my cousin from Nebraska would say.
The Bullets have been in their holster so far this season with a run of home games. The same can't be said for the Big Blue Baggers. Road trips to Adelaide and Cairns have yielded on the road wins and the team even tapped on with their Mykis when Hutchy didn’t have enough room in the Merc for the trip to Bendigo. They are free from free so far and picking up frequent flyer points like an entrepreneur. With 5 players average over 10 ppg and with CG43 getting an average of 4/9 beyond the arc averaging 44%, a cyclone warning has been issued for Nissan Arena tonight. Brisbun look out.
CG43 is the tent pole in Melbourne's circus tent. Like Hamlet, he is the central character in their plays and is very much the key to beating United. Bring down the central tent pole and the tent flops. But who in Brisbane can fire up?
Melbourne will be beaten some time this season, but not tonight, Melbourne in what should be a high scoring game 90 to 80
