Adelaide v Illawarra Apr 3

Giddey's back, but Crockers out. Hip injury as a result of an Easter Bunny hopping incident by all accounts. Harvey's out for the Hawks but Grida is back as well.

The Hawks crashed and burned in the second half against the SEM like a non-PC joke at the ALP Conference. Broekhoff catching fire dropping a lazy 26. Everyone deserves a bad game every so often, but Sixers fans hope they have another one today. Adelaide are swimming in a sea of red and need a win. Line on the left, one cross each...

It's tough to put your entire hopes on an 18 yo, because as we all know, "he's not the messiah"

No tip for this game, I don't want to crucify either team

It is time for BP3 to rip a big one. Giddey and Paul young and old to become the firm...taking care of business. Feeling real buoyant about this game... Sixers by 15.. Jack Macca McVay to have his way again. Lazy 20 for the Hungry Jack - hawks minus Harvey - sad but no chance...

No Harvey or Bairstow Hawks will not score 50 points.

Every team having to play so many games ie 3 in 6 days is ridiculous and shoows how pathetic the NBL is being run this year.

Toss the coin, I feel Adelaide is due for a win so that's the kiss of death then. So just to keep Sixers fans happy I’ll tips hawks by three, now that’s there kiss off death for hawks.

You would think the Sixers comfortably but then Max Darling will probably end up having the game of his life or something.

Hahahaha! Pinder was the worst player in the league, but Adel may have taken that mantle. At least people knew that Pinder might struggle. Adel was meant to dominate!

Seriously, why would Goorjian call a timeout when his team was on a 20-3 run and had just forced another turnover?
It completely brought us back into the game.

Hawks on paper at the start of the season looked a deep squad until the form revealed Deng Adel was actually a development player.

Hawks shambolic.
Good to see Grida back. I know Ogilvy was originally signed to replace him.
What will happen when Bairstow and Harvey return?
Does Ogilvy have to go?
There are worse players than him wearing Hawks colours.

Without Harvey and Jessup pushing through gingerly. Adelaide Was never going to be a collapsed rectal intestine to the extent of playing the cats in the last half of the cup..
Adelaide are a fun first q team to watch, Paul without any calls tonight on those drives a bit rough and I think the rest of the teams lack of notice of him being wide open.....frustrating to watch.

After the timeout they subbed Ogilvy and brought in Adel, game turned back in Sixers favour then. Rarely does a timeout cost the team that called it the game, but tonight it did and if restrictions mean that Ogilvy should leave then if I was the Hawks I'm releasing Adel. Breakers might find Ogilvy useful to backup Iverson.

Punters who have watched nba, g league over the years no that Adel would struggle. A few good game in a few seasons don't cut it. I don’t know who got fooled, Goorj or management but they are just as big a basket case on a lot more dollars. Goorj can still coach but other than a few players they are not that good.

All these Sudanese players who have been pumped up over the years as the next Durant etc. cannot really recall one actually coming close to doing anything to back it up in the nbl. Thon maker probably not even drafted if his real age was known before nba draft.

The Paul frustration translates to a live viewing as well. So many times the guys looked like they did not even see him. The fact that we only have like 1 play for him also does not help. That said we won and that's not something we can say has happened for a while now.

Speaking of gorj....
aside from cotton naturalising,
Would he be on the radar to give patty rest minutes and be that spark plug off the bench? Is this too far fetched of an idea? I know size is a liability but if gorj is that good of a coach he would know how to hide him in the defence.... just a thought

From memory,
In the last few Boomers medal games, scoring in clutch moments down the stretch of the medal rounds has been a hair putting exercise. Patty can only carry this team so far. (Not taking away from the important role everyone else has. But to have a 2-3 quick fast buckets surely would help get over the edge at least to place a medal for the first time....

The people saying Goorj has lost it due to that timeout obviously weren't watching the 99 grand final series v the 36ers.

He has always had a tendency to call timeouts when his team is on a run.

Can anyone explain why we're still required to wear face masks at adelaide games? My understanding is it’s only required if it’s at 100% capacity and there were less than 6,000 people there on Saturday.
