Kickert was a bad fit with the heavy dose of Jawai the Taipans were feeding us, I don't know that there was any more to it than that. Hunter was given pretty good instruction from Jawai last night. That's the most effective Nate has been in a long time even ignoring the points, did a great job establishing position down low and finishing before the double could come.
The Newley stuff is a concern. I thought the unsportsmanlike foul was pretty lazy and obvious and just added to the Taipans momentum at that point. Angry Newley tends to play well though, I would have liked to see him put in during the 4th Q. Maybe more to it.
I mean, it's a loss, but hats off to Cairns and Jawai especially. Always happy to see the big fella put in work. Worrying signs re: Cam once again though I think. Shows a few mins of energy after dunks, but otherwise just sort of mopes around the court. Lucky Jawai had a big game because I don't think Cam was getting more mins regardless last night.
