MEL v PER Feb 7
Can we have two MOTRs? Yeah...nah....
While the birds peck each other in Melbourne, United tap on again for the trip up to Bendigo to tussle with the only team with 10* Championships in the NBL.
Melbourne are undefeated and are in second spot, on percentage, behind everyone's second team The Hawks. It was a clinical display of strength against the hapless Bullets on Friday with Goulding having the ball on a string scoring 7/11 beyond the arc to get his 27 points. The Wildcats will need to be all over him like a cheap suit from Myers if they want any chance of an away win today. They better get used to the cheap hotel rooms and Uber eats because for the next 8 weeks they are on tour. Have they brought their roadies? Does Jesse Wagstaff have ridiculous rock star requirements for away games like "only red M&Ms" or "a bottle of Margaret River Chardonnay" after the game?
Perth are known for their D and will be squeezing United down that end of the court. But.... it's hard to see United drop this one. They'll get the win today and celebrate with an organic soy latte afterwards.
United 90 to 86.
